I just got notice from my Fido Rep regarding free Turbo Tax Premier for 2017. Sure enough it's there when I log on. Kudo's to the kid.

No notice from my rep, but I just checked and completed the download. Want to verify my end of year transactions.

I'm disappointed that Vanguard no longer has this perk, but this year it was helpful for me to get a copy early and run some different scenarios over the last couple of weeks. Next year I'll probably do the same since enough changes will happen to make using the previous year not viable, plus to try to get close to the cliff without going over I really want to use the current year program.

Thanks for the heads up. My rep did not inform me but I logged into my account and downloaded it.

Thanks!

We’re not finding this so I’m not sure what we’re doing wrong.

Where do you find it when you log on?

Never mind. DH was off searching who knows where instead of looking through the start page.

After you log on, scroll down to the bottom and you should see it on the right.

Well it turned out I was looking in the wrong place. So maybe it was there already.

Bingo!

Thanks all for the reminder.

OK, you click the Fidelity link and it opens up page to log into your Intuit account.

Then I see all the different editions on the Intuit site and only Premier is free but it says "state additional."

There's a large "Start for Free" button under each of the editions.

But I don't see a link to download the desktop (PC or Mac) versions?

I just did the download minutes ago. I did a search on "download" and it switched me to that option. The download is free too.

Never mind, I figured it out. They will only let you start on the online thing.

So I used search in the far right column and searched for download and one of the hits showed a download link.

Otherwise, there were no download links.

What assholes.

You just didn't notice it. The download link is there.

Just got TurboTax Premier from Fidelity as well. Quite happy with this little perk.

As I recall, it's always a bit of a hassle to find the download version after clicking the link and logging in to Intuit. This year, there was no download link to be found. I checked everywhere. The only thing that was clickable on the entire page was "Start for Free." Thanks to those who said to search on the word "download." The second search result (Software download of 2017) had a link to the download version for free.

I don't know why people are having a problem with this.

When I log into Fidelity, I see near the bottom of the home page the following:
one.png

Click on Get started now and I get taken to Intuit where I see this:
two.png

In the lower right (Download) section, click on See Products and you get this:
three.png

I don't know how it could be more straightforward. I think some folks are simply rushing through it and not looking at everything on a page before clicking something.

Do they offer this to folks with 401k accounts at Fidelity? I sure don't see it on my Fidelity 401k website.

Same here. But evidently our mistake was logging-in to Intuit first before clicking the little "see products" link under the download option that CRLLS drew a red arrow to. Once you login to Intuit, the download option is gone unless you do the search thing.
