Ok I have been a staunch supporter of Taxact.com for the last 8 years. Never had an issue with them, no audits, and it was cheap. Twenty dollars gets me their tax program and the federal e-file is free, and I pay for my state e-file which runs 8 dollars. It has always been this way. 28 bucks saves me huge, especially when H&R Block ran me nearly 200 dollars the last time I used them.
So fast forward to this week. I do my taxes and get ready to e-file like always. Fed is free, AZ state is 8 dollars. Then I get a notice that this year with direct deposit I am charged another 15 dollars for the direct deposit fee. I mean WTF is this? I do not ever remember being charged for a DD fee with taxact.
So what I am asking is, does Turbotax also charge you for a direct deposit fee? I think 15 dollars is a little steep.
