Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slight Glitch but it all worked out I needed to file my 2019 taxes late (2022). Since you can no longer use TurboTax Online I paid and downloaded the software version. I got more than halfway through completing them and the program crashed. When I attempted to reload it the program never reopened on my Mac Desktop computer. I started over on my laptop and was able to complete them, but that was frustrating.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Turbo Tax was weird this year I found this year's version of Turbo Tax very difficult to navigate compared to previous years. As a result, I got myself an accountant, so I won't have to use it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from importing via quickbooks didn't work Not good. I spent most of my time trying to figure out which glitch was causing my problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TURBO TAX I have used Turbo Tax for over 20 years and love it for my W-2's and 1099's. I had to go to a professional tax preparation software because I became licensed to prepare tax returns and have around 250 clients, but I still use Turbo Tax for my family and the W-2's and 1099's. I would still be using Turbo Tax for my clients if I could. It really is a good program and deals with almost all of the normal tax issues that the everyday person or business needs to get the job done. Whenever a glitch occurs, it is virtually seamless to get the programmers to fix it and keep it up to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I buy it only for preparing 1099-NEC and W-2s The best is that it allows creation of W-2s and 1099s. Also the fact that it does not ask you every time to verify identity is a good feature. Otherwise I use a different professional software for tax preparation.
