Well done, TurboTax! Their Super Bowl XLIX commercial was not only funny, well-produced, and original, but its premise was also directly related to the services their brand actually offers!

So all the taxation strife between the Brits and the colonists which ultimately led to the Revolutionary War could have been solved with some free tax preparation? All that useless bloodshed. Oh well, because: America.

Also the computers were slow back then.

Here’s one catch, though: even though TurboTax’s Super Bowl XLIX commercial was solid, keep in mind that when they say free filing, that’s usually only Federal taxes. And you’d better hope you don’t need any help with the forms, because that’s extra too!
