“TurboTax is the easy way to get your biggest possible tax refund,” said Dan Maurer, general manager of Intuit´s Consumer Group. “It does the hard work for you by automatically identifying the deductions and credits you can claim, showing you how much you´re saving every step of the way and making it easy to get answers to your questions.
