Nice!

They probably run things a bit differently from area to area.

In general, you can probably expect to attend about 30 to 40 hours of training between now and late January. You'll learn tools, processes, ethics, security, and individual income taxes (likely federal and state). You then are required to take and pass three open book multiple choice exams, probably in mid- to late-January.

After that, around here, you'd sign up for the sites and shifts you want to work. Then once or twice a week (or more) you'd volunteer preparing people's taxes through early April.

TaxAide (currently) uses TaxSlayer, which doesn't really have any of the interview question style stuff that TT does. I personally like TS better because I know what applies to me and what doesn't.

Pikers. Not worth messing with them. They should be embarrassed to offer those tiny bonus amounts.

Capital One 360 savings account offers $100 for a $10,000 deposit and $500 for $50,000. You just have to leave the money there for 90 days.
Ally savings gives you 1% of your deposit, up to $500 ($50K). Just have to leave the money there until Jan 15.

One key difference between the set of offers is that one is for brokerage/retirement, and the other is for cash savings. Two different animals for me personally.

Premier Version from Fido for me the last several years at least. I would have been happy with Deluxe (and free state filing) but that ain't gonna happen.

For the past 10 years or so, I have found that Amazon has good deals on Turbotax between Christmas and New Year's. I get the Deluxe version with one state included, and it's always $39.95 plus sales tax.

But, given the inflation rate this year, I would not be surprised if it was more.

Right now it's $55.99 .

If Fidelity doesn’t gift us the TurboTax Premier, we buy the Deluxe at Costco or Amazon waiting for the $39.95 price.

Last year's best Amazon price for Deluxe was $37.99, in late November.

Newegg has H&R Block tax software for 1/2 price with the code on the website.

deluxe is $17.50 , deluxe + state is $22.50 , premium is $32.50

Pretty decent deal.

I bought it there, and the download link is at hrblock.com (legit)

Got it, thanks. My copy came from Best Buy (at least that's what it said on the download page). I don't care which of the many servers they are using to serve the download traffic. Everything installed as expected and I got confirming emails for HRB.

This year, it looks like Amazon is not discounting lower than the HRB store/HRB website. Maybe later in the year.
