Important offers, pricing details, & disclaimers
  1. A one-time license fee of $545, which includes service and delivery, will only be charged to customers opting to prepare returns on a REP (pay-per-return) basis only. Customers with an unlimited Federal license can prepare alternate returns on a REP basis without paying the $395 license fee. When you authorize payment for printing or converting a tax return on a REP basis, a software license/usage fee is charged to your account. You may then print or convert for electronic filing that particular return an unlimited number of times with no additional pay-per-return fee charge. The above Forms and Schedules may be included and are subject to change at any time.  State e-Filing is now included at no additional cost across Unlimited and REP modules where supported.

  2. Sale price is available to first time purchasers of the product only (sorry no renewals). The sale price is good for the first year only. In year two, regular renewal fee applies to continue use of the product. Prices are subject to change without notice.
