Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Easy, complete. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First time user it went very well This was my first time using a software tax form. Although having nothing to compare it with I thought it went very well and quit fast. I can't imagine another product being much better. February 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Refund! I have been using this Turbo tax for many years, starting when it was called intuit. Over the years I've found the program very accurate and covers all tax issues. It also seems to get more user friendly each year. January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Turbo Tax 2014 Simple step-by-step easy-to-follow worksheet instructions. It took less than an hour to install the software and enter the information to complete the return. I used a Mac; I'm sure the Windows version is identical. March 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tax software year after year. I've used this software for several years and is has worked perfectly for me. Have been retired for a few years and still use the basic version as a great way to document the tax year. January 29, 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 No taxation without representation Please be more clear on what the a student who goes to college out of state should indicate for their state of residence. I had to go back and change it. The "explain this" link was not helpful in these regards at all. March 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for me! One of the few benefits of growing old is the simplification of taxes in retirement. For those of us that just need 'down and dirty', uncomplicated tax filing, this works just fine. March 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perhaps you can include other retirement pays and not only IRAs, 401Ks, Civil Service and Railroad retirements. Additional choices would be easier to follow for people like me, otherise you have an outstanding product.. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy as pie It was easy for my first time, their was a few things that I didn't understand what to put in for the amount like box 10,but you fix it for me.Then their is the state tax Tenn. doesn't have one. Thank you for your help. February 8, 2015
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 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 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 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 /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 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 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 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 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 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 UNBLOCKED TRIED THE REST TURBO'S THE BEST! February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by needed help...got excellent help frm HEATHERDETAIL MADE LIFE EASIER WITH THE MESS March 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by car tax deduction missing I thought the taxes on a large ticket item (automobile) would have a tax advantage. Should also show total fees and price options up front. March 28, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by TurboTax Basic if you need to look over your deductions save yourself time and purchase the Deluxe version. Basic gets it done but leaves you questioning if your inputted your Health Savings Accounts information correctly. I had to go through the forms to figure out how they work in the Basic version. TurboTax needs a upgrade option for customers that should have bought deluxe instead of basic. February 22, 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
