Unemployment numbers show that a lot of people lost their jobs last year. This means that a lot of people need to know exactly what they need to file their taxes during this difficult time. If your tax situation is simple or you are in the military, you may even be able to file free with TurboTax or H&R Block Free Edition.
During tax season you’ve probably seen TurboTax’s annual ad blitz claiming that you can file federal and state taxes for free. In case you’ve been out of the country, here’s what I’m talking about:
As you can see, they say “free 23 times in a 30-second commercial, including their ending slogan, “That’s right, TurboTax Free Edition is free. Free free free free.” In other words, I’d say that they strongly suggest that TurboTax is free, right?
