Forget the Forms - TurboTax Has You Covered

Updated for Tax Year 2015


OVERVIEW

TurboTax has all the forms you need to do your taxes. But don't worry - you'll never need to see a single IRS tax form if you don't want to.


Remember the days of tromping off to the library or post office to pick up your tax forms? Back then, you had to sort through pages of IRS lingo to figure out if you had all the right forms, fill them out by hand, stuff them in an envelope—and hope for the best.

TurboTax solved those problems years ago by bringing intelligent software into the equation. However, many people still have a "tax form" frame-of-mind; they want to make sure they do everything right to avoid an IRS audit. TurboTax takes the guesswork out of doing your taxes—you just answer simple questions and we fill in all the right IRS forms for you. Plus, all TurboTax products include Free Audit Support Center—so in the unlikely event that you do get audited, we're here to help.

Remember, TurboTax guarantees 100 percent accurate calculations. If you pay an IRS or state penalty or interest because of a TurboTax calculation error, we'll pay you the penalty and interest.

How do I know TurboTax has the IRS form I need?

TurboTax helps millions of taxpayers file their tax returns every year. Over the years, we've seen just about every tax scenario you can imagine. Our software is designed to take away the burden of understanding tax laws and forms from you.

If you have a simple tax return (1040 EZ, 1040, etc.) our Free Edition  has all the forms you need to complete your return. If you own a home, made donations, or have child care or medical expenses, TurboTax Deluxe will guide you through all your deductions and fill in the proper forms. TurboTax Premier offers extra help with investments and rental property and the forms required by the IRS, while Home & Business helps you with self-employment and 1099 income.

If you're ever unsure of whether a TurboTax product has the forms you need, just click the "Included Forms" link on the product description page for a full list of included forms. If you happen to start a TurboTax product that does not include the right form, we'll prompt you to upgrade and all the information you've entered will transfer, so you can simply continue where you left off.

Never see an IRS form again

Let TurboTax worry about the tax forms. All you need to do is answer easy questions about your finances and we handle the forms. E-file through TurboTax and you don't even need to see a single tax form if you don't want to. And really, who wants to see a tax form?

If you've always wanted to work for the IRS or just love the sense of accomplishment you get from reviewing your completed tax forms, you can always choose the "Forms View" in TurboTax, or print out your completed forms when you finish your tax return.

Whether you choose never to see a tax form or print everything out at the end, you can take comfort in knowing that when you use TurboTax, your taxes are guaranteed accurate.
