Intuit and SaveWealth Announce Marketing Alliance for Online Tax Preparation
ENCINITAS, CA - October 24, 2001 - SaveWealth, LLC today announced it will be expanding its popular online tax center to include Quicken(R) TurboTax(R) for the Web(SM) through a marketing alliance with Intuit, Inc.
Through the alliance, taxpayers visiting the SaveWealth Tax Center for 2001 to download federal and state income tax forms will have the option of preparing and filing their taxes online. The Tax Center's FileOnline section will use the same features and benefits as the No. 1-selling TurboTax desktop software program. And since no downloading of software is required, preparing and filing taxes is faster, easier and more convenient than ever.
"SaveWealth is pleased to be allied with Intuit," explained Scott Carr, Director of SaveWealth.com. "Over the years, Intuit has radically improved the way we do our taxes. And come January of 2002, SaveWealth taxpayers will have an affordable, convenient and secure way to file their taxes online."
The agreement will expand SaveWealth's suite of financial and investment services, giving clients a fast, easy and low-cost way to automate tax return preparation. The online filing will support hundreds of IRS and state tax forms, and automatically prepare 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms. Electronic filing services will also be included in the cost of tax preparation.
As part of this alliance, SaveWealth visitors with an adjusted gross income of $25,000 or less will be able to access Intuit's online tax preparation service free of charge through Intuit's Quicken Tax Freedom Project. The service can be accessed via the Tax Form Center, and will allow qualifying SaveWealth customers to prepare and electronically file their taxes at no cost.
TurboTax for the Web will be available through the SaveWealth Tax Center to use from mid-January, 2002 until October 15, 2002, the last filing date for tax year 2001. To access the SaveWealth Tax Center, please visit: http://www.savewealth.com/taxforms
