I got an email with subject line: Submit Your FREE Federal Return!
Main content of the email was: Enter postcard code FEDERAL12 by January 25th
to receive a FREE Federal tax return**!
Where **File a State return for only $4.95. Free Federal Return valid for TaxSlayer.com accounts not e-filed in 2011. Not valid with any other discount or promotion. Discount not to exceed $9.95 regardless of version.
I received the similar postcard in the mail.
So I registered before January 25th, but I did not see the option to enter postcard code. So I emailed customer support asking the same. Following is the response that I got from them.
“Thank you for your email request.
That postcard was sent in error. Please ignore. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
I am not satisfied with this and asked them to allow me to file return for free. Lets see what happens next…
