Did not automatically receive military discount

I am currently active duty mil and I used the deluxe edition to file but it still charged me despite you advertising it as free to active duty service members. Kinda bull**bleep** turbotax.

Sorry you had trouble.   This is mainly a user community forum--not a direct route to TurboTax Support--but I will tell you how to reach them below.   I don't know why it didn't give you the discount when you got ready to finish up and file.  That would have been a good time to ask for help, since it's easier to correct before actually paying.   I'd ask for a refund.

 

 The offer is for free Federal and State returns for active duty military and reservists of an enlisted rank (E-1 through E-9) with a W2 from DFAS.

and

I'd ask TurboTax Support for a refund.   Their Support hours are currently 5AM-9PM Pacific (8AM-12 Midnight Eastern), 7days/week.

If you are prompted to summarize your issue, say military billing issue.

 

FAQ: What is the TurboTax phone number?

If you are unable to phone (out of country, etc.), you can contact a TurboTax Support agent directly via messaging at Twitter or Facebook.

Same thing happened to me.  Used the link through USAA's website to receive $20 off my self employed Turbo Tax product, but the discount wasn't applied.  I called Turbo Tax to get the $20 refunded and they told me they don't provide refunds once the payment has been submitted.  No more Turbo Tax for me.  Don't advertise a discounted product and then not provide the discount.
