Don't recall Walmart being particularly good or bad on TT pricing. Right now it seems they are just using the suggested retail pricing from Intuit. Staples used to run some really nice package deals with shreaders and other stuff.
Personally, I'd wait until at least the end of the year before buying and then give a long thought about whether I wanted to support a company that's trying to push a per printed return pricing model.

There's been threads all over the internet on Intuit's pricing strategy.
It's clear that they are pushing e-File in a big way. Last year I paid $18 to submit my return. Now it's included. If you use e-File and do more than one return, then it's definitely worth the $10. If you do multiple returns & still prefer to print & mail, then it becomes expensive fast.
Good news is that there are a lot of options available....

I doubt that there will be much of a discount anywhere. Intuit has, for the fast few tears, kept a lock on the pricing. Buy.com (or Amazon.com) had it available for pre-release sale at the amazing discount of 2-3% !
I've always waited for Staples to put it on sale. For a couple of years a while ago, they would put the Deluxe version of Q on sale at the same price as the Basic version. You would buy TT (on sale) and get Q for free after rebate.
This year (and last) They sell TT and Q at the list price and provide their on-line rebate process. It's the standard rebate or $30 towards any version of Q.....

I've found Costco normally the cheapest, $5 cheaper than Wal Mart or Office Depot.

So far Costco seems to have the best price here in Northern Calif with TT Deluxe going for $49. Staples and Best Buy both have it for $59. There is no Walmart close by so I don't know what their price is.

The only Deluxe feature I need is the ability to download the state tax which isn't included in TT Basic.

Kinda jumping in here But/
Why pay for tax programs when, for folks who have a basic return, the IRS sponsors a number of free programs. A person does have to meet certain requirements, which I happen to meet. Look on the Net. Anne "

Good advice, here's links to browse: http://www.irs.gov/individuals/index.html http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id 7626,00.html
Unfortunately, many, if not most, aren't able to use those programs.

Good for you, but my return is a lot more complex so I need to use an accountant or a program like TurboTax.

Wow! Just before I completed my Amazon order I noticed that the state return is not included. The Deluxe version with the state return on Amazon is $55 which is $5 higher than the Costco price.

Keep in mind the new TTax licensing rules - you will need to pay $10 for each additional return you print (not just file).

Are you sure that fee isn't for E-filing? I can't imagine they will charge you $10 for printing another return. If they do, Tax Cut here I come!

Nope. As we are learning on this group, the moderated tax group, amazon tax forums, and turbotax forums that is correct. TT deluxe (list $59.95) includes one (1) free federal filing (either e-fileing *or* paper filing) - state e-filing is extra (state paper filing is free - for the *1st* return).
Each additional return requires a payment of $9.95 in order to repeat the above for the additional return.

Wow! I only do one return but I'm unable to E-file due to a limited partnership requiring a K1 so this new pricing structure only costs me more money.

Hi, Bob.
I've been out of practice for over a decade, but so far as I know, having income on a K-1 from a partnership is no barrier to e-filing. Is it?
Or did you mean that you want to e-file the partnership's return, Form 1065? There has never been a requirement to attach the K-1 to the individual partner's Form 1040. All that is needed is the data from the K-1, and that can be entered on Schedule E of the 1040, just like so many other forms of income.
Are you SURE you can't e-file?
