Rated 1 out of 5 by wizo Estates and Trusts
Each year I have to file a 1041 for an Estate. And each year I have problems. I am required to buy Turbo Tax Business to do this. What should be a fairly simple process is made difficult by your instructions and work-arounds for this return. And by looking at all the questions that others post I am not the only one that has this problem. I use Turbo Tax for my personal return, have for years, and find it easy to use. I do think however that for Estates you could design a program that would work a lot better than the one the you have buried in the Business package.

your webpage should make it clear that you need TurboTax Business in order to do a Trust return and should show how to access TurboTax Business

This is getting easier every year. This tax year I completed both my business return and personal return in one day. It used to take me weeks.

I've used TurboTax for my small business (I have an S-Corp) for over 5 years. Easy and quick to use. I recommend this for business owners.

Why not offer a cloud based or Mac based platform? I had to drop $100+ just to use the software. I will not continue to use next year unless a cloud (web based) solution is offered.

Really easy to use. A friend mentioned to me and I'm glad he did. As a person who has not completed a return on my own for many years, I could not believe how easy it was to handle my S corp filing.
I look forward to using Turbo Tax for my personal filings next.

I couldn't have prepared taxes for my LLC without TT. I put my trust in TT to cover the details that I would more than likely overlook.

I have been a long time turbotax subscriber. I am comfortable working with this program and I like how easy it is to complete the tax forms. I just wish there was someway that turbotax could transfer info over to my personal taxes. Overall, I will continue to use this program even though there are programs out there that are cheaper. I trust intuit turbotax and I have not had any bad experiences to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiggerOdell The program was excellent and easy to use with the transfer of details from Quick Books. I plan on using Turbo Tax again next year.

CHANGE THE EFILING WAY IN THE W2 AND 1099 FORMS. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION OF EFILE JUST ONE BUSINESS. YOU NEED TO DELETE ALL IN ORDER TO FILE ONE. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE FORM 1098 FOR THE NEXT YEAR

I filed a Form 1041 with the IRS:
1) I had to spend a lot of time on the IRS website reading instructions to various forms to figure out why TurboTax wasn't generating them like they did last year. TT was always right --- except for Schedule K-1 which was required to be submitted but was not included in the forms being e-filed to the IRS. Solution: I had to print and mail my Fed return instead.
2) When I was in the FILE your return stage, I clicked on the "Distribute K-1's" tab. Received a message "Your schedule K-1 forms are not ready yet. Please add shareholder info to your return." Well, the info is all there. The software has a problem. Also, no problems were found when TT checked the return for errors or missing data. Solution: I had to fill in a K-1 on the IRS website and print it.
3) There's a lot I like about TT, but the little things are big frustrations. I don't feel like I got my money's worth this year!

Completing the Balance Sheet was awkward at best. Need to revamp that interface to correlate with a real Balance Sheet Template.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightwine1 Balance Sheet
My business is very simple cash basis. Trying to do the balance sheet is difficult, confusing and time consuming. Not because of what a BS is supposed to be, but it is difficult to understand and modify. I understand how they work, but it is hidden in TT. I finally found a response to question that explained how to not submit Balance Sheet. Tried not submitting the BS in the program walk through, but that would not work.

After years of being taken to the cleaners for between $700-$1400 just to complete my corporate return, I feel that I had been robbed for many years. I keep very clean books all year and there should be nothing to do when filing the corporate return at the end of the year.

Difficult to utilize certain depreciation aspects..most items forced into 5 year period. Doing a state balance sheet is a pain!

Made it fairly easy but the California edition is troublesome on the taxes paid in California section for excise, sales and LLC taxes. Needs work and I probably will get it fixed by the State anyway.

I've used Turbo Tax for so many years , I can't remember how many. I would not pay anyone to do my taxes ever. The last time I paid someone I did them again myself with Turbo Tax and received a refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by xprdq Works fine, not thrilled with the price
TT works fine, but seems a tad expensive for what it does and goes up in price every year. I may quit using them next year if that trend continues because my business' taxes are pretty simple anyway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MikkiRipps Small Business State Transfer Fee 49.99
I think the Small Business state transfer fee is over priced. It should come with the software or you should have an option to type the information yourself and not be charged a transfer fee.

We have always used Turbo Tax and never had any problems. The IRS forms and requirements can get confusing for a "non-accountant" and Turbo Tax handles all of the confusion easily... thank goodness.

The program generated a K-1 with a negative distribution and then flagged it as an error. I manually forced it to complete by inserting zero. I have no idea now whether my K-1 is properly completed.

I now have a Mac computer and luckily saved my old windows computer or I would not have been able to use TurboTax. That would have been more than devistating!
Please get a Mac version for next year!

It all went well, except at the end it never led me to print my state return. I got it done, but I expected it to make sure I got it done. Maybe it was just me. Anyway, it went well, and I owe no taxes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JanetKS The NYS process was a pain!
It would have been nice to complete the return in one sitting. Unfortunately, the NYS return couldn't be produced. I understand this is the State's problem, not Turbo Tax's, but I should have been advised of this BEFORE I paid $50 for the privilege of NOT filing my NYS return.

I first used the competition software to save money. The process was messed up because software was not user friendly. Dumped data and started afresh with Turbo Tax. Got done in no time error free.
