About Service Codes:

What is a Service Code? A TurboTax service code is 7-digit alpha-numeric code issued directly to customers by a TurboTax customer support agent over the phone for “special circumstances” including a specific discount, credit, partial-refund, or free product. Service codes are non-transferrable, and will expire on October 15th, 2020.

You probably don’t need one! Most customers will not need to enter a service code as simply clicking on a partner discount should apply the advertised savings like this:

Service Code or Coupon Not Working?

How do I apply a discount on TurboTax? If you clicked on a promotional link or coupon and the discount is not applied to your order total, hopefully, we can help.

The most common reason for TurboTax coupons to not work is due to the security measures on turbotax.intuit.com.

You see, your tax information is incredibly sensitive, so if you are logged in to your account, the site security will block cookies including ones that apply a discount to your order.

This means that people who have already started their tax return may have a problem applying a coupon.

The good news is that there should be a quick fix. Here’s what to do if your coupon or TurboTax Service code isn’t working:

  1. Log out of turbotax.intuit..com
  2. Click on our featured discount to apply a code
  3. Log back into the turbotax.intuit.com site and review your order
  4. You should see the lower price and a message that says, “Your discount has been applied”
  5. If the coupon is still not working, you may have to clear your browser cache or even delete your cookies (How?)

About those Codes on Reddit…

reddit service codes for turbotax 2020

You may notice that a lot of people post supposed TurboTax service codes on Reddit. In reality, these codes probably don’t work and are most likely just clickbait. Because valid codes are issued for one-time use by customer service to customers for a specific order it’s unlikely that these codes are valid! We advise you to avoid any TurboTax codes on Reddit and go with a partner discount instead. Learn more

Conclusion:

TurboTax tells us that they issue service codes to fewer than 1% of customers. That means for most of us the best discounts online for TurboTax can be found through partner sites including finance blogs (like Mighty Taxes!), banks, and trusted coupon sites like RetailMeNot or Groupon.

Although death and taxes are unavoidable, at least you can save big on TurboTax software when you use a coupon or partner discount!

    My service code wasn’t working (discount not showing up) so I logged out of turbotax.com, clicked on your coupon link again, then logged in again. NOW i see the discounted prices, thanks!

  2. Reagan

    I know you said that if you’re already logged in already the coupon mighty not get applied, but I’m afraid to log out; I don’t know my password off-hand for turbotax.com. (it’s on my home computer) Isn’t there a code I can just enter instead?

    Reagan: Most customers don’t have to enter a TurobTax service code. The featured discount should be applied as soon as you click on one of the links above. Note that the best deals are early in the tax season, and the price usually goes up after March 15th.
