Rated 2 out of 5 by PAETaxed Problems with Trust Application
I had difficulty e-filing my simple Trust federal return because TT generated an unneeded Form for an Investment Interest deduction. Once I figured out the form was unnecessary for my return and deleted it the e-filing went through. Nevertheless, the whole process was aggravating as I went round and round trying to insert the required "0"s.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TCRZ Many problems with turbotax 2014
I was charged $52 for the Wisconsin state return and then discovered that it was not available. I have still not been able to
figure out how to print a copy of my return. This has been a very, very frustrating experience.

This year I had to enter my first BIG Asset and take a depreciation and I was very nervous, but Turbo Tax walked me through it and it was a breeze!! I have used Turbo Tax for over 5 years and will be back again next year.

turbotax saves our small business money by streamlining taxes so we can do them ourselves. I still have to know the basics, but it's so nice having the software do the grunt work.

State ask, do ou own or rent any real estate in PA. Our business is owning and renting real estate in PA. You have to answer NO or it ask you to enter all of your properties that are already entered on the federal return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JimJohnson44121 Be careful with this product
There are many bugs in Turbotax. Examples:
-I changed my tax year start date in the "step by step" process. This date was not updated on any of our forms: K-1s, 1180, etc. I had to go through and manually change them all.
-I changed a depreciation amount and it left the field blank in the form that was printed. I had to search online for other users' posts on the turbotax help site to fix it.
Another annoyance are questions like "Do you need to pay the 8800(b) tax this year?" (8800(b) is ficticious, but you get the idea). There is no assistance from Turbotax in determining whether or not I need to pay it, so I go to Google.
Unfortunately, it is the only system I know that improves upon simply filling the forms out myself. It saves time. But the dangerous bugs really raise cause for concern.

Program was very good until i came to balance sheet portion. I think the program should allow me to adjust retained earnings to balance the books. But it will not let me do that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by yiddishbear The software insists that all entries on schedule L and schedule M should be blank! Individually deleting the entries and/or deleting the entire form does not solve the problem. Consequently I am unable to file the return!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BDG1976 E-filing was a problem - had to uninstall and reinstall program before it would transmit the return.
Printing was a printing - went to Microsoft Word and it split it up, did not look or print out as a tax return. Used to be one step printing. Pain in the neck. HAd to save as a PDF and then open Adobe to get it to print our as a proper tax return.

I could not figure out how to delete a form that was preventing me from filing by e-file. Received a help desk number and the lady that helped me was quick and right on top of it. Had the error corrected in no time. She stayed on the line with me to make sure I was able to complete the e-filing. Great experience when use of many help desks are not.

I have used several TurboTax products for over 10 years. I have tried two other companies' products. Although TurboTax costs more, you definitely get what you pay for, and more!

Our partnership has a foreign partner which requires Foreign Partner's Information Statement (Form 8805) and Annual Return for Partnership Withholding Tax (Form 8804). Turbo Tax Business 2014 did not provide for these forms.

In the Step-by-Step It is often not clear what an entry is and what it is used for. The depreciation and asset management is very, very confusing and hard to match to my books.

Overall, the program was a lot more useful that trying to do it with the IRS hardcopy forms. TurboTax does most of the work for you based on answers to the questions they pose.

by dchamb Getting better but could stand some improvements
This is my third year using TurboTax Business to manage my parent's estate taxes. Each year the software is better but I would still like to see it do more of what regular TurboTax does. For example, a huge timesaver would be importing investment data directly from the broker. It takes considerable amount of time to manually enter this into TurboTax for Business. Also, the transfer option was a bit quirky. It initially set the "Complex" type of trust instead of "Simple" as it was in last year's return. This made for more time consumed tracking down why there were so many differences. I suppose changing fields such as that caused other forms to be generated that weren't needed in the final final, but you have to spend time chasing down why a particular form is there in the first place. Example was Form 4952, which I had to manually delete in order to get my return to efile. The form served no purpose for my filing.

I have used TurboTax for several years for our Business (S-Corp) and personal taxes. I appreciate the ease of use and support. I find it very annoying when the IRS forms are not ready, and TurboTax says they will be ready "soon". "Soon" doesn't help me to plan, when I often need my completed taxes for financial purposes. a more precise date would be nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tampabankruptcy Asked for fee for state return not needed
Corporate return preparation satisfactory, no link to prepare personal return afterward (missing profit opportunity), but then does allege that state income tax return required and requests fee for that return when program already had all information showing no state return was in fact required (Florida, subchapter S, no investment or capital gain income)

I really like how it does the Federal returns, Especially Depreciation, and it also shows what you did last year as you go, so if things are about the same as in the past, it lets you know if you are likely missing something.

As long as you have your expenses detailed, it will import your data or you can input them easily. I got my tax return filed within 1.5 hours, that's about as easy as it gets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DrBa Nits picked: buttons and e-file
Not really a full review, since TurboTax mostly works for me though I'm never thrilled or fully confident. But two mild complaints.
One, for years the buttons in the step-by-step process have said things like Yes or No, Done, Continue, etc. But you often have to read a lot of text to understand what question you're answering. The buttons should have 3 to 5 words on them to describe what clicking them does. Like, instead of just "Yes" v. "No" how about "Yes, I'm done entering credits" v. "No, I have more credits to enter". It doesn't help that if you want to get back to a specific place TT often forces you to repeat many steps--a big time-waster.
Two, I was unable to e-file this year. I got a message saying that it wasn't yet tax season. (It's early Feb.) I found a tech article on how to resolve this, but none of the fixes work. That's a pretty basic thing to have screwed up. Note that the wait on the phone support was over 30 minutes. It was faster and more certain to file by paper.
