I am so so excited to announce my partnership with TurboTax!
As you all know, in late 2017 I launched my digital course “Becoming An Influencer” where I taught the importance of treating our blogs/YouTube channels like real businesses. I spent eight weeks discussing our rates, our P&Ls/ROIs (I still stand by my word; if you don’t know what these acronyms stand for, we must talk!) and ensuring our bottom lines were in the green! Not to mention, empowering all of us to take full control of our finances. After all, we are girl bosses! So, when TurboTax reached out it felt like the most logical next step. Of course, sorting out our finances means making sure our taxes are done properly! It’s an obvious no brainer.
Now, let me be honest. I’ve had an accountant (whom I love!) for many years. I had also never tried TurboTax and in true transparency was a bit apprehensive. So, I asked all my questions.
My call went a little something like this:
Me: “Sounds great, but my situation is a bit more complex. See, I’m married, had a full-time job, a business and so on. I can’t do this on my own. “
Andy (whom I can’t thank enough for his patience): First of all, yes you can! You can start by creating an account on TurboTax.com or downloading the app on your phone for free and go through the simple steps. It works like an interview; you just answer simple questions about your life and TurboTax does the rest. It can’t get easier than that!!
Plus, you don’t pay until you are ready to file. If that weren’t enough reasons, now you can have access to the new TurboTax Live, where you are able to talk to a bilingual CPA or Enrolled Agent on your computer screen and they will walk you through the process, answer all of your tax questions from the comfort of your living room, and review your return before you file if you want.
I paraphrased Andy but you get the gist.
Me: “Wait, I basically get an accountant that will help me through the process and I’m able to do it from my home (In PJs with a glass of wine in hand! —I didn’t say that part but I sure thought about it. Ha-Ha).”
So, then I did just that. I download the app on my phone, played with it numerous times (It’s actually super easy!) and (sorry, Dan! —that’s my accountant) I think this…I don’t need to trek to an office, still get to talk to a CPA and maximize my return definitely makes it worthwhile!
I’m telling you, if you haven’t already used it, you must try it. And I’m going to give you the perfect reason to do so!
Over the course of this campaign, I’ll be giving away four gift cards so that you get a chance at winning a free filing! Yup, your 2017 taxes are on TurboTax!
So, get ready because on Feb 5th, I’ll be posting on Instagram the first chance to win! I can’t wait and in the meantime, definitely download the app. I’m telling you it’s sooooo easy!
Until next time.
