1 Here’s how savings of up to 70% works: Let’s say you have investments or self-employed income/expenses to claim and you want to file your federal tax return online. These types of filings are included with Ramsey SmartTax Federal Classic—while you’d need the Premium version of TurboTax® for those filings. If you crunch the numbers using the highest list prices for those two products during the 2024 tax filing season, you’ll get the estimated savings. We do our best to stay on top of the highest list prices, features and savings, but there’s always a chance details may not be exact as of today’s date. We recommend you do your own research to choose the best product for your situation. Ramsey isn’t affiliated with TurboTax.

Low up-front pricing

With us, you won’t be surprised by the cost when you’re knee-deep in the filing process. Our pricing starts low and stays low. No hidden fees allowed.

No Hidden Agenda

A lot of the other guys make money by offering you loans and credit cards. We’ll never do that because we want you to win with money and taxes.

Simple Choices

Both Ramsey SmartTax options cover all the federal forms and deductions, even if you’re self-employed. The main difference is the level of support.

Plus, you can file your taxes for a fraction of the cost of the other guys and not get suckered into loans and credit cards you don’t need. Why’s that a big deal? In a nutshell: The other guys make a profit when you take on debt. That’s not how we do things at Ramsey. #debtfree

You bet! The guided online process walks you right through it—and you can choose how little or how much guidance you want. You can even save time and fast-fill some of your info by starting with last year’s tax return. When you log in to Ramsey SmartTax to start your return, simply import a pdf when prompted. Using the pdf of your return from another tax prep site, Ramsey SmartTax can pull in your name, address, Social Security number, occupation and filing status.

You’ve got support for that! With Ramsey SmartTax Federal Classic, you’ll get help with IRS inquiries for up to one year after your return is accepted. With Ramsey SmartTax Federal Premium, we’ll work with you to prepare for and resolve inquiries for up to three years after your return is accepted.

Ramsey SmartTax is powered by TaxSlayer, who’s been trusted in the tax industry for over 50 years. That means the software is always up-to-date and accurate. Your info is kept safe. And if you’ve paid Uncle Sam too much, Ramsey SmartTax can help you get your refund.

Ramsey says two things about taxes: You need to do them (duh), and you need to adjust your paycheck withholding so you end up as close to $0 for a tax return as possible. That way, you keep the money you need in your monthly budget—and stop giving Uncle Sam an interest-free loan.
