At Least TurboTax Is Honest When It Tries To Upsell You

Dan spotted the pictured address bar as he filed his taxes and the free version of TurboTax propositioned him to download the state version of the software.

In case it’s too small to read, it says “stateupsell” right there in the URL.

Spotted this while I was filing my taxes using Turbotax’s free federal service.

To file with your state it’s $28.

Happy they’re not BSing it, I guess?

Would you rather be told you’re being upsold, or be finessed into shelling out money after using a free service?
