Can You File State Taxes Free With TurboTax in 2016?
State filing fees are usually extra, so the “free” applies only to your federal taxes. As a special promotion last year, TurboTax did off free state file, but that was the only time I’ve seen it.
How Much Does TurboTax State File Cost? Are there Coupons for State File?
While Federal eFile is free, the cost for state file is $39.99. (2016) You can use a coupon for Federal and state filing to reduce this cost by about 10%. You’ll see the initial discount on the software, and a 10% discount when you file your state tax return. State filing fees are the same for all versions, including the Home & Business 2016 edition of TurboTax.
TurboTax Freedom Edition Vs. Free Version: What’s the Difference?
The TurboTax Federal Free Edition is part of the standard lineup of TurboTax products from Intuit and is meant for simple tax returns. There is no limit on income level with the “free” version.
The TurboTax Freedom Edition is intended for lower-income tax filers regardless of the simplicity of their tax return. The Freedom Edition is offered through the IRS Free File Alliance Program. State returns are free with the Freedom Edition. More at turbotax.com.
