Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

So with this Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle you can import your data into turbo tax and you get to file your taxes at the end of year for free? The turbo tax self employed bundle on their website costs like $150 so I’m wondering if with this bundle, I can file all the necessary forms and get a refund for free? Isn’t that what this bundle says?

Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

Let me share some insight about how Self-Employed + TurboTax Bundle works, @exzolux.


The Tax Bundle is a subscription for both QuickBooks Self-Employed and TurboTax Self-Employed. This gives you an easy way to send your Schedule C data to TurboTax so you can file your taxes.


Moreover, a bundle subscription will waive the federal filing fees, plus one state return. For this to work, make sure to use the same username and password as you log in to both your QuickBooks Self-Employed and TurboTax Self-Employed accounts. 


For more information about the QuickBooks Self-Employed + TurboTax Bundle, you can visit this article: QuickBooksTax Bundle and how to upgrade.


Everything you need to about managing taxes including how QBSE calculates your taxes and what you'll need to do with a tax return can be found in the following articles:

So I won’t have to pay $150 on turbo tax to do my self employed taxes at the end? Is that what this bundle includes? Let’s say I pay for it each month, I’ll have a free filing (annual return) each year? I’ll be able to easily file my taxes with this bundle?

So let’s say I pay for this bundle every month, I’ll have a free filing each year that I’m paying for it? I’ll be able to File my taxes (annual return) for free and easily with this bundle? 


Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

You're right, exzolux!


With the Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle you don't have to pay for annual filing in TurboTax. It comes for free with the subscription.


You can check out the articles provided by my colleague above to learn more on how it works with QuickBooks Self-Employed.


Here's another quick read from TurboTax:


Let me know if you have other questions.

I am about to seek a refund on this bundle.  I must have made an error in my first attempt to do my taxes.  I have been on teh phone all morning and no assistance.  The problem may be that in the past i filed with my now ex husband.  I put his name first on returns because he was the main bread winner.   

Now I can't access.   I can't do anything with the synching portion of this program.  I feel I have wasted money and so much time.  


Is there a person with your company who can fix this issue/

QuickBooks Team

Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

We don't want you to feel this way, @marykliv.


I can help you get back on track about managing your account and taxes in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).


If you're referring to your account that can't be accessed anymore, you can click on the hyperlinked message "I forgot my user ID or Password" to recover it. But if you're referring to your QBSE account and Turbo Tax that isn't synced, you'll need to check if the sign-in information is the same.


I also added this article to know more about the other workarounds available in retrieving your account in QBSE: Get help if you can't sign in to your account.


Furthermore, you can review this article: Send your info to TurboTax. You can see the things we can do if the two accounts have different credentials in that article.


Since you've mentioned on about getting a refund using the Tax bundle subscription, let me route you directly to our QuickBooks Care team. They can check your account and process a refund immediately once verified. Please check the support hours before contacting them so that you'll be assisted right away or you can also choose the Request callback option.


You can always tag me in the comment section below if you have other concerns or questions. Have a nice day ahead and take care always.

I have a question, I my wife and I have been using turbo tax for several years now to fill our taxes, now that I am self-employed, can I use this bundle to file my self-employed taxes as well as entering my wife tax info so we can still file jointly? Or are we going to have to file separately? I currently have a turbo tax login . 



Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

I can share some information about having our bundle subscription, @perrysrenovation


You can file jointly if you only need one schedule C and submit one 1040-ES form.


A QuickBooks Self-Employed account can only generate one schedule C and submit one 1040-ES form. In your Tax Profile, you can set it as married and filing jointly.


Here's how to update your tax profile:

  1. Go to the Gear icon () and proceed to the Tax profile.
  2. In the Tax settings drop-down, select the tax year.
  3. Update all the necessary information.
  4. Click on Save.

See this article for more information: Review your tax profile in QuickBooks Self-Employed.


If you subscribe to our Tax bundle, you can make online payment for federal estimated quarterly taxes. Also, e-file one state and one federal return without filing fees. 


Also, you can only sync your existing TurboTax Self-Employed and QuickBooks Self-Employed account if you use same log-in credentials for both accounts.

I am totally locked out of my account as of today. It does not even give me the option to talk to an assistant or view my billing subscription. It says my subscription expired back in July, but I never received notifications in my Quickbooks or email ever (then or yesterday) before my account was locked. I also thought I had the free account until April 2021.

Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

Let's manage your account and review everything, madisonljackson.


When your subscription is about to expire, the system will send you a notification a head of time. This is to make sure that you have an updated billing information. There's a possibility that the email message was routed to your Spam folder or the email address you're using is different.


Meanwhile, we can use the QBSE Test Drive so you can contact our Customer Care Team. Then, you can follow the steps in this article to reach them out: Contact QuickBooks Self-Employed Support.


Once you have contacted our representatives, they should be able to pull up your account. From there, we can reset the account and update the billing information within the system. Or you can update it yourself using this link: Update your billing and subscription info in QuickBooks Self-Employed.


Keep us posted about this so we can further assist you in managing your account.

Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

Firstly - I would like to be clear about this promotion because I'm currently shopping your QBSE + TTSE bundle due to a new independent contracting job my wife snagged near the end of 2020. If we file using TTSE for the year 2020, we will have access to QBSE until April of 2022? If that's so, what are the differences between paying monthly for the bundle vs just paying to file using TTSE? Also, does this promo have an upcoming end date?


Secondly - Does this only work with TTSE online and not TTH&B disc version?

QuickBooks Team

Self-Employed Turbo Tax Bundle

Thanks for following this thread, DietzX5.

I’m happy to know you’re considering using the bundle program. Let me share some insights about the promotion.


If you’re a new Turbo Tax customer and don’t have a QBSE account, you’ll be given 30 days free trial to use the self-employed program. While those who have an existing QBSE account, the one-year free filing with Turbo Tax is no longer available.


Since TTH&B disc is another program, I suggest posting this question to the Turbo Tax forum. One of their support agents can provide information if it works with the bundle.

For additional resources, check out these articles.



Keep me posted below if you have any other concerns. Please know I’m always ready to answer them for you. Wishing you and your business continued success.
