Hello, and thank you very much for your inquiry.

It is true that unless you have a major credit card with a United States billing address, then you cannot direct purchase the TurboTax software directly from us, or use the internet version we offer over our website.  Unfortunately, at this particular time, we cannot accept credit cards with non-US billing addresses.

There is some additional discussion of this known issue for international customers at the following TurboTax AnswerXchange link:

One viable alternative solution that we might suggest instead would be for you to purchase TurboTax software from a different vendor (like one of our authorized retail partners such as Amazon.com, for instance).  Rather than ordering a software download (which may be also limited to US address customers only), you could purchase the program on CD-ROM disc.  Once you receive that CD-ROM disc, you could install it on your own computer, and then receive all of the free software patches and updates to the program over the internet (which is available worldwide).

It is the very same TurboTax tax software code, however you obtain it; we absolutely guarantee that.  Amazon.com also does sell to Indian buyers, with an Indian address credit card, and they do ship to India (we checked), even though they have no domestic presence in the country.  Here are links to some more information on that option:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201118330

This might be a reasonable way for you to obtain the software you want, if you do not have a US credit card.

Another choice might be to shop for a copy of TurboTax on eBay.com; and ask the seller if there can ship a CD-ROM disc to you in India.

We do apologize for any inconvenience; and again we thank you for considering TurboTax.
