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.

All in all I have been using Intuit products for 17 years. From Quickbooks to Quicken to Business Suites. I love the fluid way the programs talk to each-other. When you come to an area that requires information from your Business you can save your progress and find your info to then flip back to where you left off. I also love the feature that automatically updates you business files when data is changed while doing your taxes. Since I had been using the Accounting Software and having my CPA complete my taxes I came to the realization that I was already doing the job for my tax professional only to transfer my Quicken file and he was able to complete my taxes in minutes. Then my bill came to $ 2,000 and I no longer use my CPA for something that I was already maintaining(books).

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.

One state should be included for download free. (without jacking the base price to include the state.)

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.

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 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.
