Read my lips: TurboTax is NOT FREE.

I am only 28 years old and I don't remember the last time I didn't end up using a 1040.

I have no financial investments, no business, no stocks, no bonds, no other reason to pay taxes other than a W2. I also took 1 course in college last year.

 Yet I had to pay TurboTax $54.99 to file my own taxes!

 Did you know you can file taxes for free? If you are a student you qualify for IRS’s Free File program. [continued below]....

..... Yeah. FREE.

TurboTax will lure you into thinking they are part of this program. But they're not.

The system will allow you to enter in all of your information, spend hours doing so, then it will say 'oops, looks like you need to pay to get through this door!'

Classis strongarm hustling technique, absolutely disgusting. God knows what Intuit does with this information.

Intuit has a long history of ripping off customers. They will sell you a Quickbooks license, then invalidate it automatically. They will make you pay for updates, and if you don't pay, your software stops working. If they charge you extra, they claim to return the money, but they never do. 

Intuit safely hides because their name, because they bought Quickbooks back in the 2000s, and it is now their claim to fame. Don't be fooled, these guys don't give a F***. They will rip you off in a heartbeat.
