TurboTax Premier CD/Download Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15522 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy as ever! I have used this product for many years with great success, and always find it to be a quick and effective tool for getting this yearly chore done. I have yet to encounter any issues with the taxing authorities since using this product, and look forward to the same in the years to come. March 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 2012 Carryover Capital Loss was not transferred correctly from TurboTax 2012 into my 2013 return. It transferred only to the AMT Carryover Loss. This is the first year I started to have doubts about the software. February 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Once I type in information it is lost in space. It is hard to go back to a place without doing extra screens over again.I cannot print a screen only the tax forms. I found this program not very friendly to use. February 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Review Usually Turbo Tax does an update first, this time it was last and it made me nervous of things missed. Then, worst of all, the sales tax deduction did not work!! February 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Several times the data was duplicated. I like the fact that TurboTax knows the tax laws, but it is not nearly as easy to use as it used to be. I've used TurboTax for over 10 years and it is less user friendly than it used to be. February 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I inadvertently lost electronic copy of 2012 return and only had available my PDF copies. I was unable to retrieve 2012 returns from TurboTax records. Therefore I had to enter 2013 carry over data by hand. Big disappointment. February 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Deceptive The efile for the state of Ohio should be free. I did not know that I would have to pay until the very last screens. You should advertise that you will have to pay to e-file. Very deceptive practice. February 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have been using turbo tax almost since it came out on the market and it has gotten better and easier to use each year. It is very easy to use with step by step help as you go through the program March 21, 2014
