A GPS guides you step-by-step to your destination—keeping you on track with no missteps along the way.

TurboTax helps you the same way, by guiding you step-by-step through your taxes and guaranteeing you get your maximum refund.

It starts with simple questions where you'll tell us about your income, job situation, and changes in your family life—so we can help you get every credit and deduction you've got coming.

Next, we'll save you time with our easy-to-use tools that let you import tax-related information straight from your accounts with the click of a mouse.

Just like a GPS, TurboTax provides a visual map, so you know what areas you've covered and how far you need to go to get your refund.

TurboTax is always updated with the latest federal and state tax information saving you time and trouble. So you don't have to track down forms and you won't worry about missing anything.

TurboTax walks you through each step and puts your information in the right place—no guessing—so you won't make a wrong turn. We take the information you provide and help you take the course that's right for your unique situation.

You're in the driver's seat. With TurboTax you get your taxes done when it's convenient for you and at your own pace. Need a rest stop? Save as you go and return any time—day or night.

Just like a GPS guides you, when you're ready, we'll help you arrive at your destination on time and stress-free.

We'll even help you e-file your return, so you can get your refund in as fast as 8 days.*

*Update for 2019: The IRS issued more than 9 out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days last year. The same results are expected in 2020.
