TurboTax has a Satisfaction Guaranteed Refund Policy that allows you to request a refund if you are not fully satisfied with their product. TurboTax also accepts refunds if another software was able to provide you with a better refund. That is, you input your tax details into another software and it achieved a greater tax return or a lower tax payment that you owe. In either of these cases, TurboTax will refund you the cost of their software. The refund claim must be submitted within 60 days of your tax claim filing date, and no later than May 31st of each year.
To get your refund, simply fill out these steps:
2. Click on the Turbo Tax Refund Request Form
3. You can fill out the form for customers who purchased a TurboTax CDs or desktop download, both of which are valid for the unconditional 60-day money back guarantee. This guarantee does not apply to TurboTax Online or the TurboTax Mobile App.
4. You will need to select if you purchased TurboTax directly from the TurboTax website.
4a. If you did, you will have to identify if you purchased a physical CD or download. If you purchased the CD, you will need to send a copy of the TurboTax order form and receipt to their shipping or mailing address. After they receive the forms, it will take five to nine business days to process.
