If you’re a State Farm customer, and you’re registered on their online site, you have access to TurboTax and both federal and state e-filing absolutely free. The link to access TurboTax for free will appear in your sidebar on their page when you are logged in.
You’re a customer, but not registered online? Go register.
Not a customer, but wishing you were? State Farm offers a variety of banking options, too. You could open a savings account or a CD, after which you’d have access to the free TurboTax and filing.
They offer this every year, by the way. Why? Who knows. Good karma? Nah. Probably just for the site traffic. Still, a deal’s a deal.
How cool is this! I’ve been a State Farm customer for 15 years and done my taxes online (and paid for it) via Turbotax for at least 5 or 6 years. Now I can do it for free! You’re a beautiful goddess, Mir!
Wow, thanks for sharing, this is great! We’re newly State Farm customers in the past year.
BB&T (the bank) has the same offer. http://www.bbt.com. They only have locations in 11 states in the Mid- and Southeast, but I’m sure that includes at least some of you that visit this site regularly!
One of the many reasons to be a State Farm customer.
That sounds great, unless you work for a competitor…..
Or you can go to irs.gov, click on free file, and follow that link through to any number of big name sites like turbo tax and tax cut to have a free federal file. No, its not state and yes there are better deals out if you keep and eye out for it. And oh, there are income limits for that free file program. But it can help!
This is great, I’ve been a State Farm customer for 20 years and never knew. I’d always filed for free online, but just moved to a state 2 years ago that will not allow me to file state taxes online for free anywhere. Yay for pretty Mir!
Wow – had no idea and a state farm customer for several years – what a GREAT surprise this morning!! Now only if my husband’s w2 will come (I sure hate companies that wait until the dealine to send them!)
Angela (and others): The income limit for 2007 for the IRS’ FreeFile is $54,000. More info on that can be found here.
Thanks for bringing that up, too. 🙂
You are the bomb! I am a lifetime StateFarm customer and I NEVER KNEW!
And of course, if you are military, you can file for free through Military.com – full version, no income limit, state filing included (last year it was, anyway!)
And even more good info! Thanks, Linda! 🙂
Damn. Never been State Farm customer, but wish I was…That’s an AWESOME perk.
THANK YOU, Mir! I have been a State Farm customer for years and I just registered so that I can take advantage of this amazing offer. THANK YOU! I need to share this with my dad too!
I was a State Farm customer for 12 years and never got squat except attitude from them. Now they finally come through with a benefit for being a customer–just AFTER I switch to Geico! 🙁
State Farm also offers a free year of McAfee Virus Scan through the State Farm website once you register/login.
Cool! Thanks for sharing! I’ve always been able to file online for free because of our income but we got enough of a raise last year that we will miss out on that this year because of the income limits. I just canceled my State Farm Visa card last month but I was able to re-register at the website because I’m an insurance customer.
Thanks for sharing, Mir! I’ve been a State Farm customer for 20 years and have been paying for TurboTax for at least 5 years. Not any more! 🙂
