TurboTax offers free filing for military E1- E5

Continuing this tax season, TurboTax will still be offering the expansive military discount to all US active duty military and reservists.

For service members in ranks E-1 to E-5, you can file both your federal and state taxes for FREE with the TurboTax Online Free Edition or Online Deluxe offerings. For guidance around investments, rental properties or self-employment income and deductions, TurboTax is also offering a $5 off discount for online TurboTax Premier, TurboTax Self-Employed federal products, and our TurboTax Live product, where you can connect live via one-way video to a CPA or Enrolled Agent to get answers to your tax questions from the comfort of your couch. The TurboTax Live tax expert can even review, sign, and file your tax return.

Senior enlisted personnel ranks E-6 and above also are included in the discount and will receive $5 off or more on all 2018 TurboTax online federal products.

Claim Your Discount

Once you determine which discount you qualify for, claiming it is a breeze. Make sure you have your military W-2 to verify your rank, and the discount will be applied when you file your tax return. This offer extends to TurboTax online only, so go to TurboTax Military Discount for more information.

Along with the military discount, TurboTax is proud to partner with you to ensure your maximum tax refund this tax season, including:

  • TurboTax will file both your military and civilian income (if applicable), including combat pay
  • TurboTax software searches for military-related expenses so you don’t miss any deductions or credits
  • Your personal experience supports Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders to help you determine your state of residence

Through these TurboTax Online military offerings, we hope to show our appreciation for everything you do – and we will continue to strive to get you the refund you deserve.
