How to Use a Coupon
The team at E-file.com works very hard to provide users with low prices on its software throughout the tax season. Despite our already low price, we also occasionally provide users with additional discounts. These discounts, whether they are supplied on our website or through a partnering website such as Groupon or Coupons.com, will come in the form of a coupon or promo code.
For example, right now, if you visit our home page you will see the coupon "25OFF" which provides all new users with 25% off their tax filing purchase. Please note, discounts only apply to tax software and not third party fees such as e-collect or other bank fees associated with paying for software with your tax refund.
Now, having a coupon code is great, but since it is only truly valuable if you know how and where to use it, we have created the following page to help show users how to use a coupon to receive a discount on their E-file.com software purchase.
Follow these three easy steps to apply a discount to your purchase.
Step 1: Once you reach the checkout page, you will see the total cost for the tax software including any state and/or federal filings. Underneath this, will be a link which says "Have a promotional code or coupon?" click this link and a entry field will appear.
Step 2: In this field enter your coupon code. Make sure not to add any additional spaces or characters or it will not be accepted. Once this is entered click the "Apply Code" button.
Step 3: Make sure the correct discount is now applied to your purchase.

Q&A: Is it safe to use E-file?
E-filing has quickly become the most popular option for submitting tax returns to the IRS. In 2018, e-filing accounted for nearly 90% of submitted federal tax returns. Using E-file.com avoids many of the security issues associated with paper submissions. Mailed returns and refunds are susceptible to being lost, mis-delivered and even stolen. Electronically transmitted returns and refunds using direct deposit do not run these same risks. Further, paper returns are susceptible to input errors when re-entering the information received in paper format. That risk does not exist with electronically transmissions since the return is already in digital format when it is securely transmitted. For these reasons, e-filing has accounted for nearly 2 billion securely processes tax filings since its introduction in 1986.
