can you take fee out of return

    Cancel
    Yes.
    At the end of the process you are given the option to have your fees deducted from your refund.

    There are two $30 fees.
    One for tax prep and one to have your fees deducted from your refund.

      Only from a federal refund if it is big enough.  You are in the Free Edition.  Federal is free and state is 27.95 and to deduct it from your federal refund is an EXTRA 29.95 which you can avoid by using a credit card.

        If you have not filed yet You can remove the refund transfer fee by going to the Print and File tab and continue until you get to the "Confirm Your Payment Decision" screen.

        Answer "NO" to the question "So you still want your fees deducted from your federal refund". The next screen will give you the option to pay by credit card.
        • I changed it to pay with a CC and I was still charged the $29.95.  It didn't give me a 'review' screen once I put in my CC info before it charged me.  Is there anyway to get the $29.95 fee reimbursed?

          Right, you can only have the fees deducted from the federal return - not state refund.  So you would have had to pay for the state when you filed the federal return.

            Don't do it!  They charge another 29.95 to deduct it from your return.  Use a credit card and avoid the fee.
            • I already chose to have the extra fee taken from my tax return, but I didn't realize it would cost, now how can I go back in and change to a credit card???

            they are not giving the choice to deduct the fee from state return as they did with my federal
              Cancel
              What was the 29.95 for?  Deluxe is 29.95 for federal and 36.95 for state.

              How to find your fees…..
              Log in to your return
              Click on Tools (Upper Right)
              Click on $My Fees
              A window will pop up that shows the fees

              Have no idea since you are asking from the Deluxe version which is 29.95 for federal and 36.95 for state.

              How to find your fees…..
              Log in to your return
              Click on Tools (Upper Right)
              Click on $My Fees
              A window will pop up that shows the fees

              And to have the fees deducted from your federal refund is an EXTRA 29.95 Refund Transfer fee. Or you can pay with a credit card and avoid the extra charge.

                You have to go to the help section and talk to a rep about it. They will give you a code to enter at checkout if you qualify for a discount of any sort... I did it twice because I didn't copy the code the first time... Recommend you double check you have the code before ending the session.

                          People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

                          1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
                          2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
                          3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
                          4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
                          5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
