A Totally-Free Tax Return? What's the Catch?
With TurboTax Free Edition, you can complete a totally-free federal tax return and e-file for free. No strings attached. The Free Edition offers less guidance compared to our other TurboTax products, so it works best if you're filing a simple return (1040 EZ, 1040A, etc.), and are comfortable doing so without much help.
If you choose, you can transfer your information to TurboTax State and file your state taxes for a small additional fee. But you are not required to make any purchase to file your federal taxes using TurboTax Free Edition.
