TurboTax Now Available for Commodore 64 and the Atari 2600

April 1, 2015.

TurboTax Canada is proud to announce that in response to high consumer demand, TurboTax is now available for the Commodore 64 and Atari 2600.

As a result of some significant market research – which may or may not have been one person in their 50’s who has a mullet – that there are a growing number of Canadians who still embracing retro-culture, and see it as the “good old days.”

That is all that was needed in order for the crack staff at TurboTax Canada to devote time and effort to support Canadians and offer our award winning product on the Atari and Commodores platforms this year.  Unfortunately, we were unable to add TurboTax to the Timex Sinclair, however, there is always next year, eh?

So put those tabletop editions of Frogger, Pac-Man and Donkey Kong aside, forget about solving Rubik’s Cube, and get set for a gnarly experience filing your taxes on your favorite platform. All of the features you’ve come to expect from TurboTax have been included, such as our EasyStep interview process and RRSP optimizer – enabling you to attain a maximum refund.

For those of you with a Commodore 64, relax and enjoy some quiet time while you load TurboTax using nine 5 1/4″ floppy disks. Atari 2600 users will be particularly excited to pop in their TurboTax cartridge and use the classic Atari joystick to navigate their tax return.

These great products are now available at Consumers Distributing, Woolco, K-Mart and many other fine retailers.
