  • Giveaway: TurboTax Premier 2011 (3 winners)

    My taxes are being prepared by a professional, but I know many of you are doing your own. That’s why I’m happy to offer this giveaway, provided by TurboTax, one of the best known and most popular tax prep software options.

    Here’s what’s new with TurboTax 2011:

    • For the first time, TurboTax is offering everyone free one-on-one tax advice from an experienced tax professional live, by phone or chat so that people have the confidence that their return is done right.
    • There’s a new TurboTax app for Android tablets – the only tax preparation software to offer customized, native apps, not just a browser experience, for the growing number of consumers who choose to prepare their taxes on a mobile or tablet device.
    • There are new versions of TurboTax’s popular SnapTax app for iPhone and Android, as well as an updated TurboTax app for iPad, making it even easier to prepare and file taxes anytime and anywhere.
    • TurboTax Audit Support Guarantee provides free one-on-one audit guidance year-round from an experienced tax professional to help you know what to expect and how to prepare in the event you receive an audit letter from the IRS.
    • TurboTax 2011 provides step-by-step guidance through over 350 deductions and credits with special guidance for first time customers. TurboTax automatically transfers essential tax data from more than 400,000 employers, banks, financial institutions and credit unions into your return.
