Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than Doing Returns by Hand, but BE CAREFUL! I've used Turbo Tax for a number of years, both for individual returns and partnership returns. The partnership product leaves a lot to be desired. This review is about Turbo Tax Premier 2012, for individual tax returns. Like many of the prior year products, TurboTax Premier 2012 is easy to use and covers a lot of material. Automatic calculations relieve the burden of reading instructions and manually doing worksheets. The "Easy Step" walkthrough covers a wide range of possibilities, but it's also possible to go directly to a specific area if you need to add or change something. The option to look at Forms helps to see how the return looks as a whole and identify any errors not picked up by the error checking feature. One major downside (for me), is that the software does not automatically calculate net operating loss carryforwards for individuals. I've had to do that manually for the past five years. It's not a difficult task, but it does require going through the forms and instructions to make sure you get it right. And if you have become complacent and expect Turbo Tax to do everything for you, it's an unpleasant surprise to find that something was overlooked. Therefore, BE CAREFUL. Make sure you review the form carefully to ensure that everything you expect to be on it is there, and calculated correctly. Another major downside with TurboTax Premier 2012 is in the printing feature. In prior versions it was possible to print directly to pdf to save, separately, your Federal Return, Federal Return with worksheets, State return, and State return with worksheets -- all as separate pdf files or as one pdf file.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NEVER AGAIN Next year I'll use another software after using turbo tax over twenty year. 1. Deducted money from my account twice 2. Important information was missing from my tax return 3. Still have not received my return but was charged by the turbo tax software... TERRIBLE!!! May 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad year for Turbo Tax I have been using Turbo for many years and was satisfied. What happen to your good product? If it was to save a buck it was a bad move. Your loss and mine. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Turbo Tax 2014 I have used Turbo Tax for a number of years now. I've read some of the on-line criticisms and while I'm sure they have some merit, I find that the ease of use and thoroughness of the system to work for me. May 26, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Money Well Spent! The product meets my need to complete my own return, but provides support and answers when needed. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope you're right Seemed different form last years filing. May 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Peezy Overall good experience. The help functions were very helpful. May 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I was out of state and had to file an extension. In Intuit's eyes, this made me ineligible to receive the $25 rebate, which was suppose to be available to all required to upgrade to PREMIER due to Intuit's product repackaging. Intuit's business practices are suspect. Next year, I will evaluate other options. May 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Turbo Tax Failed to transmit ive used turbotax for years. this time the state was transmitted but the federal was not. this has naturally caused problems May 26, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Please make this work! I just submitted my federal, then went back to Federal and deleted entire 1099-R to submit NYS. Last year I just mailed in my state. This problem is listed and complained about all over google! Two years now... Come on now & please just fix it!!! May 25, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I think it is too expensive. Way to expensive. I hired a tax person two years ago and paid him $150. He did everything. I paid Turbo Tax $100 and I had to do all the work. It doesn't seem like it is worth it to me. Someone recommended H&R Block's software was better and cheaper. So, I may use that next year. May 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than hiring CPA I have been using Turbo Tax to file my tax for few years now. Before I used TT, I engaged with a CPA to file my tax thinking he would be helpful in answering my tax questions or providing some good tax advice. I ended up paying more than $1k plus with just the W-2 filing + Sch A. He provided no good advice in my situation but charging me few hours consultation fees (just merely talking) + 1 hour rate of file opening fee. So ridiculous! I spent more time, scanning, providing him the documents and explaining my docs to him. With TT, I save myself time scanning docs! Much easier to do it myself! Moreover, TT has always wonderful and extremely helpful CPAs to help you answering all questions you have. They truly care for their clients. May 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Premier 2014 less usable than prior year ediions Review of Premier 2014 Overall, it seems that TurboTax is "overautomating" the product, with the result that tax returns with any level of complexity beyond plain vanilla are harder and more time-consuming to do than in previous years. Example: I have certain small "unusual situations," such as a pension paid from an overseas source that does not furnish 1099-Rs. . In previous years TT pulled all the information forward in the 1099-R section from the previous year, including the "missing or incorrect 1099-R" status for this pension. Did not happen in 2014 version. I had to go back and manually do the 4592 form for "missing 1099-R" and undo the info for that pension that TT pulled from the 2013 return. . Similar issues in other situations that would seem to be fairly common for the investor/property owner customer that Premier is aimed, such as interest paid from loaning out securities. In past years, the "link to data source" function enabled the user to go back and make the necessary adjustments. Not in the 2014 version. The "link to source" function usually did not work. My recommendation to TT is to provide the user more control or options in importing information from previous year's returns.... example -- import the answers that the user gave to interview questions the previous year, to enable the user to retain the answer for this year or change it, rather than puzzling through everything again. Other: I use the Hawaii state return. This is a simple return, but TT does not really do it well. Major failure...does not provide the N-158 Form, which every filer who has investment interest expenses must file. it is a simple form, easy to calculate from Federal Tax Return information, but TT does not do it. Perhaps because N-158 filers cannot file electronically. Also, the data source link simply does not work in the Hawaii State return. So -- overall review...TurboTax Premier 2014 still useful, but not up to previous year's standards or usability. May 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Need to try harder I've used TTax a long time. It is consistent and reliable, saving me lots of time year to year. May 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Tax Preparation Software Excellent tax prep software. Guides new users along, also makes it easy for experts to go to Forms mode to get to specific detailed items. I've been using tax software and preparation services for years, and NOTHING BEATS TURBO TAX! May 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Going backwards Seems like the program is dropping old features to make changes for Health care question. Used to handle K-1's with no problems, now a mess. Does not handle short term long term split of stock sales, was automatic before even on Deluxe. Does not handle Form 1116's well, worse then before. Always wants overrides when before either calculated itself or asked. Took Five times to get it to recognize Various, had to keep retyping. I bought Premier this time, no benefit unless you trashed Deluxe. If you want to keep to one CD, used to be 3.5 inch disk and had videoes, then make two CD or switch to DVD. I am seriously considering H&R Block TaxCut next year, Asking for answers on a user blog is not satisfactory. May 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Online surprises I've been using Turbo Tax for years. Typically I buy the discs and load it up. This year I did the online version and the differences are NOT CLEARLY defined. I ended up having to buy the discs anyway and spending MORE THAN TWICE as much to complete my family's returns this year. BUYER BEWARE! Also, I couldn't figure out how to view the forms in the online version. When I needed to go back in to update some entries, navigating was not as easy. May 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by I never received my card in the mail. I filed and everything correctly but never received my card in the mail. The site is awesome. The mailing process not so much. I needed that money. May 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much improved over previous returns I found that the process was much improved over a few years ago, greater flexibility makes it easier to deal with issues and correct problem areas. It is a thumbs up from me. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by review I liked last year's tax form better. this year's form was confusing. May 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product, no respect for cutomers It is outrageous that Intuit would sell the same product with the same name for the same price as in past years, but take the guts out of it. Raise the price if you must, but don't deceive your loyal customers. May 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tax Refund experience for 2014 return Other than the lengthy time for the CD disk to load the filing and asking of questions went very smooth for my tax filing. May 23, 2015
