I wanted to file my state and federal together, I was told that I have to upgrade to Turbo Tax Plus for $39.99, but I STILL Have to pay an additional $29.99 for Federal on TOP of that?? Here is what say you are going to charge: TurboTax federal - $29.99 TurboTax State - $36.99 AND TurboTax Plus: - $39.99
You may be in California and chose the refund processing option to have your TT fees paid out of your Federal refund.
California filers who choose that option end up in TurboTax Plus, which bundles the refund processing option with the Audit Defense product for 39.99.
You can remove the 39.99 fee prior to efiling if you don't want those options, by removing the refund processing service option and paying your TT fees upfront using a credit card, a debit card, or a prepaid debit card purchased at stores.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
