> I use a different product than TurboTax whose product can't be used for more returns than the specified limit unless the software is repurchased.
Just to clarify, my TurboTax Deluxe allows the preparation and printing of an unlimited number of Federal and state (just one state, though) returns, but Federal e-filing is limited to five returns. (State e-filing is not an included option...$20/state return e-filed.)
> If it's the same with TurboTax, then perhaps it's just marketing. i.e. The greater the number of machines it's installed on, the greater the chances of a new customer signing on.
I'm not sure I follow you there. (The additional installations are on machines that are also owned by the software's owner, so from where's the benefit to be derived?.)
