The message of errors but telling me I didn't need to enter the information for Missouri was annoying.

Easy to use if you have your information together. Imports previous year so your info is accurate to start with.
Only con is that it is not available for Macs. We don't have any pc's in our house so it took me a while to find one to borrow. Once the Mac version is available, I would rate it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerardo6863 So easy to file!
2014 was our first year to file taxes for our newly formed business. Using turbo tax made it seem so easy and the program helped me go through the process step-by-step. It also has help guides to assist me on certain areas. Customer support was also very helpful in assisting in all areas of concern.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SteveMidlo Pretty Good
It is quick and easy to file, more so years after the first year due to the information being transferred. My issue is not being able to e-file the state return. It is now required we e-file the state return so I will have to print the information and transfer it to the on-line system from the state.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UnhappyOwner Very confused, not real happy, but I think done
I have used TurboTax for 19 years to complete my S corporation taxes. This year, Virginia is requiring all S Corporations to submit their "Pass Through Entity" tax returns electronically. I have been trying to file my corporate tax return since January 31, which is very important to me because by March, my business is so busy, I don't have time, nor can I remember to do it. For the first time in several years I was able to complete my Federal Return by the end of January. (In previous years the software would not allow me to do that until almost the end of February.) But when I tried to send my Virginia return in electronically, the software said it could not do that. (Not that it needed more time to update their software, just "we are unable to file this return electronically.") As of March 6, It was still giving me the same message, and when I checked with the State of Virginia, Turbotax was not listed as one of the approved providers of this service. So I told my office manager to contact Turbotax and request a refund, since the software was not providing the only service I needed it to. Virginia "Pass Through Entity" is one of the simplest tax returns imaginable, in my mind totally overpriced at $49.95, especially when it doesn't allow a required electronic filing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Greylocks Expensive but still worth the cost
OK, if you are a small business and you keep your own books, then you are not going to want to pay a CPA or HR Block to do your taxes either. Turbo-tax is really the only game in town. The less familiar you are with your tax form requirements, the longer it will take to complete the interview approach, but if you stick with it conscientiously, you will be able to file a reasonably accurate, legal, and certainly accurate and consistent return. Best of all, you will understand your tax liability instead of just trusting the CPA. Next year it will be a lot easier, and you can avoid the CPA bill for doing it. But also, next year you will find that Intuit has raised the prices of the federal product, or the state product, the filing fees, or all three. Or, most annoying, you may have to upgrade your QB version to keep it compatible.
Support is another problem - there is no free tax support anymore either from Intuit or the IRS. The Turbotax community is sometimes helpful, sometimes not. All in all, if you want to do your own taxes, then TurboTax is the way to go, but its not free. If you include the cost for personal, business, and state packages, you bill will be $300+ per year + your time. I haven't had a CPA do my taxes in years, so I don't know what the going rate is, but its worth checking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Richxxxx CA Nonresidential Income Tax for a Trust
Very little of my trust's income was from CA, yet the tax bill according to TurboTax was enormous. I knew something was wrong but couldn't figure it out for several hours. You need to go into a particular form and separate CA income from other income. This was totally unclear and in my view, would cause many people doing the same thing to overpay their taxes to CA. The questionnaire needs to simply ask that if the trust is not located in CA, then how the income is to be aloocated.

If you have a small business, this is the easiest and least expensive way to do your taxes. You do have to know what some accounting terms mean (e.g., Balance Sheet), but it's basic stuff. I've used this software for many years. Love how it imports info each year so I don't have to start at Square One.

This is the 4th year I have used Turbo Tax to file my taxes, and I fully intend to continue using them. Extremely easy to use. Support is greatly helpful and stays on the phone with you through the entire process to make sure you have everything correct prior to filing. Couldn't ask for more than that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by overtaxedWG Easy step by step
The program is a good one to use; however, I feel that one state program should be included for the price of $150. You also have to go with the premium personal version to support the K-1's which is also more expensive. I may look at other options next year, even though I've used TT for years personally.
