Rated 4 out of 5 by DoTaxesAlone My past tax preparer let his office people do the return and made many mistakes. I don't think I'll make any more than his people did. January 19, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Way over priced, should not have gotten My mom get me this, I could have done all of this with the same features other places for just $10.00 instead of the $90.00 she spent. January 24, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nickeled and Dimed Bought basic product, needing nothing else for Federal. Was surprised -unpleasantly- to find that the State is now >$40 and then another $20 to file the bloody thing. Really? $60 more for State filing and software?! Would you have charged this much if I'd bought Deluxe? January 25, 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by It was ok The program is a nice and easy program to use but after paying for the software I still had to pay to e-file my state tax return. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and fast I've used Turbotax for years and love it but this year it wouldn't let me enter my wife's 1099R so I had to enter it under mine. February 20, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Both the yes/no radio buttons were selected for a 1098 option. I had to delete the entire return and re-enter everything. Required to upgrade to the deluxe version to itemize - opted to have my taxes done elsewhere. Next year I will consider different software options. March 30, 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by TurboTax Sucks Every other page asks for an upgrade to the next level for more money even though it isn't needed. blatant lies to get you to upgrade"can't process your tax with this program" though it asks questions and continues on if you say no. Stay with the Block or a free one next year. March 14, 2015

Rated 2 out of 5 by Following your instr/uctions When it says,"how do you wish to file e-file, etc." When I check to see if it filed it tells me that I have not filed yet. March 31, 2015
