Do you do your own taxes? If so, you might be interested in this offer from TaxACT Online… Click through for details, but the short version is that you can pre-register to receive the “TaxACT Ultimate Bundle” for the 2011 filing season for $13.95 – this includes both your Federal and State return as well as free e-filing.
This isn’t the exactly the deal of the century, as the regular price is $17.95, but it’s a $4.00 discount without having to actually commit to anything. You basically just create an account by going through this link and you’ll be assured of getting the pre-release pricing when it comes time to file.
Once the 2011 version is online, you’ll be able to play with it and decide whether or not you like it. If you do, you can pay for it. If not, you can move on and use something else. I’ve never used TaxACT, so I don’t have any firsthand experience with it. That being said, TaxACT did receive a number of favorable comments in my earlier post about the best tax prep software.
P.S. Yes, I know that many are still recovering from trauma of doing their 2010 taxes, but you know what they say… The early bird gets the worm!
