How to Maximize Your Tax Return: Use This Simple Strategy
It sounds strange, but sometimes filing your taxes feels like a game.
Your goal is to get the biggest tax refund — without doing anything illegal, of course. You answer some questions, submit your documents and think, “Man, I could really use a nice refund in my bank account!”
One of the best ways to maximize your tax refund is to take advantage of tax deductions and credits. But there are more than 350 tax credits and deductions out there, so where do you even start?
Thankfully, TurboTax can find every tax deduction and credit you qualify for automatically. All you have to do is answer some simple questions, upload your W-2 and voilà!

Listen. Filing taxes probably isn’t at the top of your list of favorite things to do. But you’ve got to do it, so why not make it as easy as possible while also getting the biggest refund?
That’s where TurboTax will help. Just answer some questions about your year: Did you have kids, buy a house, get married, pay student loans or make any donations? Then import your W-2 from over 1 million companies, or simply snap a photo of it.
Next, TurboTax gets to work. If you have any questions along the way, use TurboTax Live, and click to connect with a team of tax experts, who have, on average, more than 15 years of experience. (Yup — we’re talking about real humans, not bots.) Hop on a live video chat and ask them any questions at any time.
Then, once you’re ready to file, a TurboTax Live CPA can even give your taxes a line-by-line review to make sure everything’s accurate and that you’re getting the biggest refund possible.
And if you’re an investor — say you use investing apps, trade cryptocurrency or have rental property income — try TurboTax Premier. You can import thousands of investment transactions from hundreds of platforms to save time.
So are you ready to see what your tax refund will look like this year? TurboTax guarantees you’ll get your maximum refund — and it takes only minutes to get started.
