I have a recurring dream (fantasy?) where I’m in the audience of a certain television talk show, and suddenly, the host begins giving out the BEST prizes to everyone. The strange thing? It’s the same prize over and over –
“You get a break! You get a break! You ALL get a break!”
I think I need a break.
This tax season, I’m taking steps to turn that dream into reality: by getting my taxes done from the comfort of my home with a TurboTax Live Full Service expert. I handed off my taxes to a qualified tax expert (with an average of 10 years of experience!) so I feel confident they will be done right, with the best possible return!
Here are my top five reasons to use TurboTax Live Full Service:
1) Have your taxes prepared, signed, and filed for you – on your schedule.
Give yourself a break from paperwork… but also, do your taxes on your break! I found myself submitting my tax documents on my mobile during the Raptors’ halftime. Hello! Can it get any easier? I was able to connect seamlessly and whether I was accessing the service from a mobile phone (iOS/Android), tablet (iOS/Android) or computer, I could start, stop and continue my taxes across devices. Did I mention that you don’t have to leave your home?
2) Enjoy a team of tax experts at your fingertips.
Seriously, ask ALL the questions. You’ll receive unlimited tax advice to help you get your biggest possible refund. The bulk of my correspondence took place over online chat, however, I did schedule a one-way video conference so the tax expert could review the calculations, answer (more) questions, provide a detailed breakdown of every deduction and credit I am eligible for and provide tips for future returns.
3) Sleep well knowing the service is backed by – not one – but THREE powerful guarantees.
You can trust TurboTax to get your taxes done right with every dollar you deserve. Here’s what you can expect with TurboTax Live Full Service products:
Maximum Refund Guarantee: TurboTax will find you the maximum refund you deserve (or the lowest tax payable). If you get a larger refund or smaller tax due from another tax preparation method, they’ll refund the purchase price paid.
100% Accurate Calculation Guarantee: TurboTax guarantees their calculations are 100% accurate. If you pay a penalty because of a TurboTax calculation error, they will reimburse you the penalty and interest.
100% Accurate Expert Approved Guarantee: If a TurboTax Live Tax Expert makes an error on your return based on the information provided, they’ll pay the penalty and interest.
4) Create a buffer zone between you and the CRA.
If the government requires more information, or has questions about your return, no need to stress; your tax expert has your back with audit defence at no extra cost, and will liaise on your behalf. TurboTax will represent you and defend your tax return to the CRA. Bonus: Audit Defence (usually an add-on service priced at $49.99) is included with TurboTax Live Full Service products at no additional cost.
5) Choose the TurboTax Live Full Service product that is best suited for your tax situation.
Also available for Self-Employed Customers!
