Rated 5 out of 5 by Nickname555 Love Intuit-mostly
I have used Intuit products (Quickbooks) since 1996. They do make my job easier. This information is specifically for Turbotax since I would review the new Quickbooks quite differently.
We were paying thousands of dollars to have our tax returns prepared. After taking an online tax class at a local community college for fun I looked at my tax returns. The errors I found was scary. The knowledge I got at the tax class gave me the confidence to do our taxes myself. I was able to correct the previous errors done by a professional and now prepare mine every year. I don't blame the professional because I can see how it would be difficult to do taxes for a company that you are not involved in the bookkeeping/accounting on a regular basis. I know my company better than anyone and with Turbotax I can take that knowledge, punch it into the software and know that it is correct.
One suggestion....I would take that tax class every year at the cc but they won't let me. Intuit should offer one-without charging an arm and a leg for it.

by RichardLH Business - Allocation didn't work 2->5 partners
I had obtained the forms directly from the IRS and it was easy. Since I'm lazy I bought Business and it went almost as easy as manually. Then I bought State Partnership. What a nightmare!
Of course I also own Premier. I am a long, long time customer.
Can I get a refund for State Partnership?

Rated 4 out of 5 by SamRodz Easy to use,
Very easy to use, one does not need to be tax savvy just know where to look on-line for some answers. Instructions for particular forms are helpful. This is the first time I use the business version, I've been using the individual for over 20 yrs, with no complaints. Will use again next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RKthehandyman Somewhat difficult for the amateur
Hard to use for a non-expert, but it seems to have everything you need. Also, I think it's overpriced and ought to include at least one state with it. I used it for a tax refund on a 1099-R payment to a trust (pretty simple, but it took some work due to my amateur status and lack of knowledge)

Rated 5 out of 5 by allopez1 Saved my biscuit!
Used turbo tax because it provides the information that I need for my small business. It provides an easy to follow program and allows you to advance and return to passed entries. Allows me to wait until the last minute to file, always pushing the deadline, but that is me! efile the way to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by barbara2011 Easier than last year
I really enjoy the ability to transfer my information from the previous year. Doing my own taxes is always daunting as they get more complicated each year. However, having TurboTax is better than going to any accountant. I can research and take my time to make sure I'm getting the best return.

Taxes are a nightmare every year. And I even put off doing it with TurboTax because I hate it so much. But when I finally got into it, TurboTax made it pretty easy. The explanations were great. And if I got stuck, I just googled my question and it would show up somewhere in the TurboTax forum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Engineer770 TurboTax for Business is confused
Please forward this to the Support staff, since the Customer Service page only allows short questions, not detailed information on what needs to be made better....
TurboTax only shows the final total for Partner's Capital on the 1065 p. 5, Schedule L. Every year I struggle for hours to make the Balance Sheet per Books to balance. My separate Balance Sheet balances fine, but TurboTax's balance does not. The reason I struggle for hours is because TT does not provide sufficient info to troubleshoot. Especially when there is a cash distribution to the partners, I usually have to override something because TT does not let me know where to place the number. I have been using TT since 1993, and TT for Business since 2001, and every year I swear that I will find different tax prep software. I believe, because if the TT balance sheet is out-of-balance even just $1, that you should devote some additional programming time to better/additional entry instructions and troubleshooting. Again, the out-of-balance situation is due to TT because my separate balance sheet is in balance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KSollien Simple IRA vs LLC
Our LLC/partnership members (2) contributed for the first time this year into a Simple IRA. There was no help or instructions of any kind from Turbo Tax or any other source for that matter. Very, very confusing and difficult. Took many hours to figure this out and I can only hope it is correct.

Rated 4 out of 5 by John19471947 Just a few items
It would help if the forms in the print center were in the same order that the forms are as listed in left side on the screen when in the forms mode. In the past there was a "find form" choice that you could enter a form number or name and your program would retrieve that form. Where did it go?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Iresha Help section not "helpful"
Finding any additional info is hard.
I wanted to know more about completing the form for depreciation of real estate.
Once I searched for it the turbo tax advice was severely flawed. May be the steps were for an older version
It looks like the help topics have not been updated for a long time :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by PamPai Horrible Import AGAIN
For the fifth year in a row, I had to spend time going line by line in the Forms Mode to correct the import errors from QuickBooks Pro 2014 which cannot be identified in the Step-By-Step mode.
There should be a way to view import details (not just line item totals) BEFORE the import takes place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BusyCraig Turbo Tax Business is Lacking
During entering in Member data for an LLC using the "interview method" it does not ask you if they had distribution during the year. Instead you have to dig around to locate where that data is to be entered. That should be fixed otherwise your Capital Accounts will be off and you may not know why.
