Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacks Comments for 2015 Always happy with turbo tax and got it for my son to use also this year. I feel turbo tax is as good or even better that an individual tax preparer. So easy to use and imports needed forms very well. February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Short and sweet I've been using Turbotax for several years and I couldn't be happier. If you're still filling out tax forms you're really doing yourself a disservice. Turbotax is by far the easiest and quickest way to go. January 31, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by One issue in the program. Some driver's licenses don't have expiration dates due to active military status. I couldn't get past that part of the program without errors, so I had to delete all the information I had put in and skip that section. January 22, 2016
