version of TurboTax, along with free personal tax advice to help them
get the maximum tax refund they deserve.
MONTREAL, Feb. 27, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - TurboTax, Canada's #1 best selling tax software for over 10 years has
joined forces with the Desjardins Movement, the largest financial
cooperative in Canada, to help make taxes easy and worry-free for their
members and clients this year. Both companies share a commitment to
helping Québec taxpayers better manage their finances and their taxes
and, as such, they recognize that the tax season is key when it comes
to financial planning for Québec families.
Desjardins already provides their members with strategic advice on sound
financial management. Through this partnership, which includes a
substantial discount on TurboTax Online, Desjardins can now offer their
members and clients access to an online tool used by nearly 1 million
Québec taxpayers every year. TurboTax Online lets users start their tax
return free of charge: you only pay once you are satisfied and ready to
file your return. What's more, there is a discount from Desjardins.
And thanks to the practical tips available on the Desjardins and TurboTax blogs, taxpayers will get clear explanations on managing their personal
finances, along with saving and investment strategies for greater
financial independence, not to mention the reassurance of getting their
maximum refund, guaranteed.

of charge for all TurboTax users.
TurboTax makes taxes easy, accurately guiding users step-by-step through
their returns and helping them find all the credits and deductions for
