Rated 5 out of 5 by Stress Free Refund I feel Turbo Tax is an easy in and out process. It only takes a few minutes of your time. The process is simple and direct. I would recommend Turbo Tax to anyone who is interested. February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't File Taxes Any Other Way! I've used TurboTax for the last several years to file my taxes and I'll continue to use it for the rest of my life. Filing is made super quick and easy with TurboTax and I have my refunds in hand in no time. Thank you! January 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple, a little frustrating, well worth the money great simple software that I could recommend to anyone of any age group, if you can type, have the proper forms, and a little help anyone can file their taxes for less than what it would cost to have a professional do it. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have used Turbo Tax for many years, never any complaints. Just wondering why the tax software is cheaper in the store than being a TurboTax customer and receiving my copy automatically? slightly more expensive (No biggy) February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes taxes so simple! I've been using Turbo Tax for years and plan to in the future as well. It's simple to use, accurate, and they help me find ways to increase my refund. With the free electronic filing, my refund gets back to me very quickly. January 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by /first time user I have never done my taxes before but decided to try this year because they are fairly simple. I am glad I chose Turbo as it was easy to follow and I will use it again next year. March 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My experience Been using for a very long time. Had to buy a new Mac finally because this version required an OS my old Mac did not support. I'm back after a year away and very happy to return. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Easy To Use!! Turbo Tax really made filing taxes this year soo easy and inexpensive. My first year filing as a student> I was woorried about complicated forms. Turbo Tax was soo Easy t Use!! February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by smooth and thorough Started using Turbo Tax many years ago when my return was complex. Now it is simpler but I am hooked on the thoroughness of the program. The explanations are easy to understand. March 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by perhaps an explanation of changes that would affect previous year to current year. When a large variance exists but no significant changes had occurred, why the large variance? February 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by first time user of turbo tax and it was simple. it was truly easy. i didn't have a lot of deductions so my refund was quick. there seemed to be help windows for each step. i'm glad that i finally decided to do my own taxes. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easier Than Ever Ive been using Turbo Tax for years and this year found it more simple than ever for some reason. I also liked how you made it personal and specific to my information, not wasting time reviewing things that didn't apply to me. February 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely DISSATISFIED I paid for the program . Then I was charged $42 just to be able to see my state taxes and then you wanted to charge me again to file. I have used Turbo tax numerous times and I will never use it again. I am beyond disappointed. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! A Real Blessing! I have been using Turbo Tax for a few years now. I feel confident that I have been able to file my own taxes and save money on preparation costs. I highly recommend Turbo Tax! January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and Fast I would recommend this to everyone that is just filing an EZ return. No need to pay the HR Block and others as this is much cheaper and lets you understand what is going on. April 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The Worst! Turbo Tax software doesn't automatically update. My information was lost when i tried updating, luckily it was saved on my computer. This happened last year as well, and makes the already stressful process even more irritating. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied I found this very easy to follow. Everything was explained as I went along. I have used TurboTax the last 9 years and I will continue to use it as long as I have to file. February 19, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by dissapointed!! I was very upset at the way the Basic package was prepared. Will probably not purchase Turbo tax next year. I will use one of the free services or a competitor product. February 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not going to pay $40 more just to add schedule A. I will stop using turbo tax and file a paper return. You are getting the cost almost as high as going to a preparer. January 30, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Will not be receiving a 1095a. For a partial family coverage I have an ECN number. Turbotax does not have an area to enter I will not be receiving a 1095a. IRS will hold a partial of my refund until they can get more information on why i did not submit the 1095a. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Easy Turbo Tax is a great way to file your own taxes without spending a large amount of money. It is quick and easy to use with step by step instructions that help through the entire process. I will definitely use Turbo Tax again next year. February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by fast and easy and good customer service this was my second year using turbo tax. i encountered a small problem and fortunately when i called the customer service they were able to expeditiously resolve it. February 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad for $10 Good product for filing $10 EZ return- done in 20 mins. Saves me a few hours of going over tax instructions. Did a good job getting covering all the student credits. March 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by what happened? We filed our taxes a week ago. Everything looked fine. Tenth year we've used Turbo Tax. Today we went in to check our return status only to find Turbo Tax had not filed our taxes. We had to go through the last few steps again. Not happy. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for beginners! I love TurboTax was very easy to use and it helped me understand what I was entering and why. Also, hope to use it next year and have much more savings! They also went over the health care stuff that I was not aware of!! Thanks TurboTax!! February 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've never filed my taxes by myself, I've always went to Jackson Hewitt because I didn't know it could have been this simple. Using Turbo Tax was quick and easy! January 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not up to prervious editions In 2012, 2013 you had a great program. It fell apart this year. The 2014 tax year version did not include forms for "Coverdell" accounts. Even though I got a nice letter from the Turbo-Tax when I tried to get the forms it led me in circles. February 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unable to print return - error message stating that Turbo Tax is already installed and need to remove it. Unable to view or print returns. Six hours of installing and uninstalling.....just to obtain a print copy....what a waste of time. April 15, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Have used "TurboTax" for many years. This year it is difficult to follow and forms have been left out. It is designed to sell an "upgrade" and not help the user. You have lost me as a customer! I will look for a different program next year. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Got it done in one night Not a first time filer, but first time on my own in a new state, so my needs were very basic and didn't need anything more than the basic package. The program is easy to use and I got my taxes done in one night when I didn't intend to start. January 31, 2015
