SAN DIEGO – Jan. 05, 2009 – Got a taxing question? TurboTax® has answers. And they’re free.

With income tax season quickly approaching, taxpayers looking for answers have expanded options with TurboTax  this year. Among them: free, live tax advice throughout January, and year-round, anytime access to online answers from tax experts and TurboTax customers. Both help taxpayers get answers to their tax filing questions, and no purchase is necessary. Here’s how they work:

Live tax advice during January: Anyone can talk to an expert who will answer their personal, federal tax-related question for free (a $29.95 value) through Jan. 31 at www.FreeTaxQuestion.com. Taxpayers can submit a question online and they’ll receive a personal call back, at a time they request from a tax expert from TurboTax, the nation’s leading tax software. This is a limited time offer and subject to availability through January 2009.

Easy answers all the time: Get answers anytime from the TurboTax Live Community. This online community, also included in all TurboTax desktop and online products, puts the collective knowledge of TurboTax customers and experts at a user’s fingertips, dramatically simplifying how people get answers.
