Rated 3 out of 5 by from Have used for over a Decade I have used Turbo Tax from the beginning. I have never had a problem until this year for the 2018 tax year. I could not get my new computer to read the files from the older operating system therefore had to start from scratch. Big negative! First time ever I had to file for an extension. Turbo Tax deactivated my account because I let it sit loo long without activity. I had no idea this would happen. Major problem at the last minute when it was time to file. After years of no problems this year was horrific from start to finish. Enough so I'm not sure I'll use it next year. The gentleman that helped me on the phone was wonderful but 24 - 48 hours for a response cannot help when the post office closes in less than an hour.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useful -- if you're already a tax expert Pros: Turbotax allowed me to complete my tax returns myself Cons: 1) As someone who is not a professional tax preparer, I do not find Turbotax very user-friendly. In particular, the explanations of the interview questions are frequently unhelpful. Typically when I don't understand whether a rule referenced in an interview question applies to me I read the accompanying explanation, which gives one or two examples of when the rule might apply but doesn't give a non-example or any guidelines explaining why it wouldn't; generally my situation doesn't match the example situations, but I'm left wondering if the difference between them is significant enough to disqualify me. Without more information, and without the time to do significant research, I'm left to guess. (Before Intuit publishes Turbotax each year, they should have laypeople read their explanations and give feedback.) In addition, once Smart Check is happening the error messages tend to be written in the (rather opaque) language of the tax form instead of the language of the interview -- something like, "Box 26c (RFQ) requires a value from 0-5" -- and the (presumably non-expert) user must figure out how to interpret this. When this happens I usually have to go to the tax form itself to figure out what's going on, which makes me wonder why I shelled out the money for a program that's supposed to interpret those forms for me. 2) I found the timing of the error checks very peculiar. I prepared returns for both my spouse and me and then ran them both through Smart Check several times; no errors were found. I subsequently went through all the steps to e-file the returns, and was in the process of submitting them. Only then did Turbotax announce that it had found an omission (in both returns) of some information (which it presented to me in a very opaque manner, as I mentioned above, and which I had to puzzle through on the tax form itself). I don't understand why a) Turbotax had failed to ask me for that information (about the taxpayer's spouse's state residency status) in the interview stage, and b) why it had failed to notice that omission during any of the earlier error checks. It was just a stroke of luck that I wasn't submitting at my usual time of 11:58 PM: one trusts that when the Smart Check says the taxes are error-free, that the taxes are error-free. 3) It is annoying to have to enter information from paper forms box-by-box into Turbotax -- there is a huge chance of error, both through mistyping and through mismatches between what boxes are on the form and what fields are on the screen. While Turbotax has the option of importing from banks and brokerage houses, I often find that this function does not work. I would like to see a function added to the program that would use my computer's webcam to scan forms from my financial institutions and transfers the data directly into my tax return. 4) I find it frustrating that there is no way of knowing whether I actually did my taxes correctly. I got a really big refund and my spouse owed a lot of money, and I don't know if that's due to the intricacies of the tax code or because I messed up somewhere; Turbotax didn't find any errors, but that doesn't mean I didn't make any. Turbotax checks my work, but it is limited by what I have inputted: if I did not understand a question correctly, or if I interpreted a tax situation incorrectly, the program won't know that I messed up. I realize that there any computer program is limited by user input, but either a) the program should be more helpful in the way it collects my input, or b) the program should do a better job of educating me as I go through it so that I can do a better job of determining whether I used it correctly, or both. Otherwise, I'm left wanting to take my Turbotax returns to a professional tax preparer to check my work for me, which defeats the whole purpose of using Turbotax. 5) Intuit makes a big deal about how Turbotax is good because it gets users a big refund. I think this is somewhat deceitful: I think what makes a tax program good is whether it results in users submitting a correct return. A big refund doesn't help me if I messed up and have to give it back. By advertising big refunds, Intuit is basically avoiding the question of quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TurboCharged with TurboTax As with each year I have used TurboTax, it was easy to use. An additional great feature is the carry-over feature that allows information from the prior year's filings to be carried over to the current year. Its a time saver because it eliminates having to enter information that has not changed from the previous year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Endless hoops Why can't you offer a product where you can buy TT, the states you want, AND e-file, all at the same time? Instead you keep springing it on us at the very end of the process when we are trying to file the return, then log in and pay for the states you want, then back, oh then you need to pay to e-file in those states - but there is a 3 state limit (why?), then back in, e-file, and then do it all again for the states past the limit. Again, this comes ALL right at the END, when you are trying to file the return and it takes 30 minutes to just get all the extra payment things out of the way, not to mention surprise inquiries about your DL number. Any reason why you can't get that info in the beginning? It would save a LOT of aggravation. TT has the tax part down - but the non-user friendly part of the actual e-file part leaves a lot to be desired!
