    "I've been using TurboTax Live Premier for three years now. I like the simplicity of uploading my information and always learn something from the prompts along the way. And I like the opportunity to review with an accountant before I file. Sure there's a cost, but it's about the same as I paid when I paid someone else to complete
    my taxes."
