TurboTax Offering One Free Tax Answer Through Jan. 31 [Taxes]: From Lifehacker
"Tax season—it's coming up sooner than you think. If you've got any questions on your personal, federal income taxes, the folks behind TurboTax will once again call you back with a free answer between now and Jan. 31.
Just as with last year, actual humans affiliated with Intuit's TurboTax software and web applications will answer questions left on their FreeTaxQuestion.com site, calling back within 24 hours. There's a limit of one question per person during the promotion, running through Jan. 31, and it only applies to federal taxes, not state—specifically Forms 1040 (personal) and 1065, 1120, or 1120S (business). You can leave your question from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time.
You will, of course, likely get a soft push toward TurboTax services, and questions beyond specific, technical issues should probably go to an accountant. That said, it's still a nice little freebie for a little piece of mind, and a good number of commenters were pleasantly surprised with their results last year."
