Can you add audit defense later? If so is it worth it?

You can get it later if you go to their web site but you will not get the TT discounted price ... or if you are audited and need assistance you can seek local professional assistance.    https://www.taxaudit.com/


What's the difference between the Audit Support Guarantee and Audit Defense?

One is included with all versions of TurboTax and the other is an optional add-on service, with the biggest difference being the amount of dedicated help you get if you're audited.

Audit Support Guarantee

·         Included with all versions of TurboTax.

·         If you get an audit notice, get one-on-one audit guidance from a trained tax professional.

·         Year-round answers to your audit questions.

·         Assistance with what to expect and how to prepare for an audit.

Audit Defense

·         Optional, add-on service.

·         Get full audit representation by a licensed tax professional, including representation in front of the IRS.

·         Available through MAX Defend and Restore (TurboTax Online) or as a standalone service (TurboTax desktop software).

·         Must be purchased when you file your taxes.
