Which program should I utilize if I work for the militiary?

If you use your military W-2 to verify rank, your military discount will be applied when you file. 

E1 – E5 Discounts:

  • Free federal and state filing with Free Edition or Deluxe
  • $5 off discount or bigger for Premier and Self-Employed

E6 and above Discounts:

  • $5 off discount or bigger on all TurboTax federal products


However, if you meet at least one of the following qualifications, filing free with TurboTax FREEDOM (not to be confused with Federal Free edition) could be right for you:

  • AGI of 33,000 or less
  • You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
  • You served as active duty military (including Reservists and National Guard) with a maximum 2016 family income $64,000 (you'll also need a military-issued W-2).
