TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt, Dell, Sprint Offers Extended, GM Premium Program 

Enroll in the TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt Member Discount Programs to Help Your Members Save this Tax Season
Although the enrollment deadline for the TurboTax Sweepstakes has passed, your credit union can still enroll today at the Promoter level and offer your members more discounts on TurboTax Federal products.

For members that feel more comfortable working with a tax professional rather than doing their own taxes, Jackson Hewitt is offering two ways to save on tax prep this season.
Members will either get $30 off their Jackson Hewitt fees or $50 less* than last year when they switch from a competing tax professional.

In addition to offering your members a discount on tax services, these programs offer a great way for your credit union to increase website traffic and build awareness regarding your credit union’s other core products and services such as IRAs and auto loans, which are common uses for tax return funds received by your members.

Also don’t forget, CU Solutions Group will provide your credit union with all of the marketing materials needed to promote both of these valuable discounts and benefits to your members – at no cost to your credit union.

Click here to enroll now in the TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt Member Discount Programs or upgrade your TurboTax program.

If you are already enrolled in TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt we will email you in late November to notify you when the marketing materials are available in the Partner Center at
