2017 TurboTax Deals at Costco (2016 Tax Year)

turbotax 2017 costco

Updated January 25th, 2017: Every year as tax season rolls around you’ll notice that big pallet of blue TurboTax boxes as you enter Costco. This year is no different with the same selection of popular versions waiting to jump into your cart. But is this really a good deal? Let’s take a look at the prices and versions that are offered this year to help you in completing your 2016 tax return.

  • TurboTax Deluxe Federal + State + Efile is on sale for $39.86.

Retailing for $59.99, you will save a little over $20.00 by getting TurboTax Deluxe at Costco. That’s a little bit more than 30% off the list price. But be sure also check out our deals from the TurboTax Store directly as they are offering a 10% coupon to Software Voucher visitors between now and April 15th.  That makes the online Deluxe version on sale starting at $31.49.

  • TurboTax Premier Federal + State + Efile for $54.86 (free shipping of ordered online from costco.com).

Retailing for $89.99, buying the Premier edition of TurboTax at Costco saves you $35.00. Not a bad deal, however the best offer we could find at the moment is as low as $49.49. Be sure to see our TurboTax Premier deals page for a complete list of offers now available.

  • TurboTax Home & Business Federal + State + Efile for $64.86.

This is the edition that I’ve personally used for the past several years (I switched from H&R Block at Home software three years ago). If picking up the Home & Business edition at Costco you’ll save $35.00 from the suggested retail price of $99.99. This is an average deal as we were able to find the exact same version for as low as $71.99 (28% off). See all the latest Home & Business coupons for other offer details.

  • TurboTax Business Federal + Efile

This version is also on sale at costco.com for $104.86 with free ground shipping included with your purchase.  Just keep in mind that it’s not sold at all retail locations but is available when ordering online.  Just be sure to see all the other current TurboTax Business coupons and discounts to see if a lower price elsewhere is available at the moment.

Do I need to send in a rebate or use a coupon to get these deals?

The good thing is that these sale prices at Costco are likely to be valid through April 15th, 2017 and do not require any additional coupons or rebates. With that said, we recommend that you keep an eye out for any additional coupons in the mailers that are sent to your home that may include additional savings (usually the coupon booklets are sent out to Executive Club memberships). You’ll notice that most tax deals are offered early in the tax season (often in mid-January).  Some promos are also based on where you live  and may or may not be available in the State that you live in.

Other things you need to know.

As with all products sold from Costco, you’ll need to be a club member to be able to purchase from your local warehouse or from costco.com. If you’re not a member, there are three different paid annual membership plans to choose from. They will also often offer you a free trial if you’ve never visited one of their stores before and have an easy membership cancellation policy if you decide to end your membership early.

    I bought TurboTax Home & Business from Costco several months ago. I have inserted the new disk into my MacPro, followed the instructions to install it on my hard drive into applications (now the 2015 icon is just after TurboTax 2012, 2013, and 2014. When I try to open the program, it says “An update is available. Would you like to download it now?” I click “Install now” and I get “Update Error!” I have waited and tried a number of other times with the same result. Help- how do I either bypass the update for now, or make the update install work? Thank you! Gretchen

What are your other filing options this tax season?

If your heart is not yet set on TurboTax (which, just so you know, is the #1 best selling tax software brand), then we encourage you to also see the promotions offered on H&R Block’s tax preparation software. They offer a very similar set of programs that are priced significantly less than equivalent TurboTax versions. Similar to TurboTax, there are four versions to choose from depending on the complexity of your return. All orders include offer free advice from a tax expert as many times as you need it and in-person audit support at one of your local H&R Block offices. You are also covered by their 100% accuracy and maximum refund guarantee.

Another option is to see if any TurboTax discount is available at your bank of credit union - Like at Bank of America, Citi, Chase, Capital One, or Vanguard. You can usually find more details through your online account or by visiting your favorite and nearest financial institution.

Want to Party TurboTax Style?

TurboTax is once again is giving 3000 lucky individuals a chance to host their very own tax party - They call it the You Party. The way it works is that you invite 10 friends or family members to your home and your show them what TurboTax is all about. TurboTax sends you props, balloons, a few informational folders, and an activity guide. And in return for you promoting their products, TurboTax lets you file with any of the TurboTax Online versions for free this year and all your guests get a service code to save 50% on their orders. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask us!

Has a deal or promotion expired?

Unlike other so called "coupon" websites, we go to great lengths to ensure that the offers posted here are accurate and the absolute best available for today. But sometimes a deal can change unexpectedly or expire without notice to us. If you see any errors on this page then please share them with us. We're constantly on email and will quickly look into issues that you are seeing.
