Rated 5 out of 5 by biammesa Love Turbo Tax
I have been using Turbo Tax for years and it has made my tax preparation much easier. I follow the screen prompts and just enter the amounts or answer questions to determine if I am eligible for something. It skips items that I don't need based on my answers. It used to take me several hours over many days to compile everything and fill out the tax forms but now I can easily complete in a couple of hours once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HarleyThunder Always use turbo tax
I use turbo tax every year and I rely on it. I won't use anything else and I won't help my friends do their taxes unless they're using it. The only criticism I have of it is that between each section it brings you to the main screen and makes you scroll past all the sections you've done to get to the Continue button...I've already seen those...put a Continue button at the top and I'll rate it a 5 next year :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by KayBeeEdS Stressfree Filing
I started using TurboTax last year after having spent hours at the tax preparer's office in previous years. It is a very simple product to use, especially if one suffers from procrastination and/or from tax season anxiety. From start to finish, it took about 90 minutes to file my returns. I appreciate the straightforward and simple questions. That feature makes the whole process less stressful and...."taxing!"

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rococosrockin Deeply disappointed this year!
I've used Turbo Tax for 10 years now and this year was the first time I was disappointed with the program. I couldn't access the updates and couldn't proceed with with filing because of this. Shame on me for waiting til the last minute to file, but I never expected any problems from what has been an extremely pleasant program to use. I'll have to decide if next year is the time to try another company's product

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsTurboFiler Getting payment made
Everything went as smooth as can be until I got to the end and needed to make my payment. I'm not sure what an Intuit account is but it kept taking me into the field to set up an account. I wanted to pay, not set up an account. Maybe next year we could bring up the payment screen and then go to setting up an account if one is interested. I felt that I was being trapped into doing something I didn't want to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shava88 Using Turbotax
All the steps are easy to follow and gives a good indication if you may raise a red flag for an audit. The exemptions in block 2 shows up on the work sheet as you follow each step but does not show up for seniors in block 23a until the form is reviewed or printed. Maybe, this could be shown on the worksheet as block 2 does. Other than that, it's a very good system and have been using TurboTax for several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCGreg Fantastic Product!!!
I never complete product reviews, so the simple fact that I'm doing this is a testament to the value of the TurboTax product. I've been using TurboTax for many years. It is a fantastic product. It is so easy to use, it's as if you're being asked all the questions by a Tax Professional sitting across the table. I can't speak highly enough of this product. Thank you Intuit for saving me time and money every year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 40years 2014 review
The program was quick, covered all the new information that I was aware would be in this year's income tax. I think the whole process went faster than any years past since I have started using Turbo Tax. I feel very comfortable that my taxes have been prepared completely and correctly. I am satisfied with this program and have been using Turbo Tax for past 5 + years and plan to continue to use it in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zayus Greatest Software Ever!
I have been using Turbo Tax since 2002, at that time my yearly cost went from around $500 for my tax accountant to about $100 a year for this software and e-filing. Earlier versions had video presentations that explained each section for Income and Deductions. I found that very helpful, I wish that would be included again. I have recommended this software to all my family and friends and many are very thankful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KrisRink City Return Issue
While trying to do my Grand Rapids, MI. City Tax Return, I ran into an issue. I am a non-resident of Grand Rapids, but work in the city all year. I identified that and when finished it had not taken into account that I had paid city taxes throughout the year as per my W-2. I have had to do these by hand. Is there something I'm missing or is this a problem with the software or is this option not available to me?

Rated 5 out of 5 by DufH Easiest return ever!
I recently retired and that coupled with a 100% increase from my usual tax preparer finally pushed me to TurboTax. This was the easiest preparation ever with them guiding me step by step. They even asked me some questions that allowed me to claim some deductions that my former CPA never mentioned. That alone would have saved me hundreds of dollars over the last few years. I should have done this 18 years ago!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Josephine508 Not up to Snuff
I wish the program would have allowed me to delete the sections the IRS doesn't require. I wanted to purchase audit defense, but with the run around of errors showing up every time I tried to
e-file I apparently lost that option. I finally ended up paying $77.00 to get professional help just so I could e-file. I've had such good results with Turbo-tax in the past. Now I'm uncertain about using it in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Intuit1234 Works okay, but getting too expensive
I will likely be switching to TaxCut. Intuit keeps changing the feature set on Turbo Tax so that only the most expensive version will do what the prior version did. I'm told by a friend that uses TaxCut, that you can get a free review of your taxes at any H&R Block location with purchase of Tax Cut.
I also hate how Turbo tax charges you $70 for tax software, then another $25 to file state taxes electronically.

Other than the con listed, Turbo Tax this year was fine. I finally thought of going back to my original federal income tax to correct having too many characters in the employment position of the state tax. I was then able to e-file state along with federal. I saw in the help center that others had this same problem in other areas of the state tax return for another state, but there was no answer to the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jhs0610 better this year
I liked it overall this year, but still am perplexed that there is no place to enter other payments than the estimated tax payments. where do I enter the check I sent with my form 1040 last year? I could nothing close in the help menu. I finally entered it under estimated taxes. I hope that's correct. now I need to go back and amend my prior years' filings. otherwise this was much improved over earlier versions.

I had was not able to download the software online, website would only take me to the online preparation method. I had to go to a store to get a version I could load onto my computer.
I have used Turbo Tax for many years and have always felt comfortable navigating through the software. This year it seemed more difficult and confusing. I completed the submission but not with the same confidence as in years past.

Rated 4 out of 5 by M3G5 And Done!
TT is an easy process and we are greatful for it. However, it can be a slow process if you do not have your previous years file with you. We bought it at Costco instead of doing our usual log in and file. It only saved us $10, sooo not worth it. The online program has all our previous years, had I none they wouldn't sink, I would have never bought the disk.
Loyal TT customers, we are happy with the ease of use.

by waltmitty Gets easier to use every year
I like filing my Federal and State Tax Returns using TurboTax. I have been using this software for many years and the annual improvements make the program easier and easier to use. This year I e-filed both my Federal and State income taxes. Their is no extra fee to e-file the Federal Tax but it cost an extra $20 to e-file my State Taxes. It would be nice if the software also included one free State Tax e-filing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunnnie1 Easy tax
I have been using TurboTax for at least eight years. Obviously, I appreciate the time savings in completing my returns.
This is the first time that I had some difficulty in filing my state return by mail. No problem with the e-filing of the Federal return.
It didn't seem to understand that I did not want to e-file the state return, so I had to go back and just get a copy that I could slow mail. But, it's done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SelfEmployedY Simplifies Complicated Taxes
As a self-employed person, I find taxes to be very intimidating. Turbo Tax walks you through the whole process, and if you miss something (a critical receipt turns up, for example), you can always add it in later. With TurboTax I feel confident that the forms are done correctly, and I still maintain control of my finances, while deepening my understanding of what is happening to my money in the world of the IRS.

by NAS135 BEST tax refund tool on the market
I like turbo tax because I think it comes for a very fair rate. In addition it offers a safe piece-of-mind like feeling with the reviews, double checks, and display of your credits/dollars.
I preach to all, that TURBO TAX is the safest most affordable way to not only succesfully file your taxes... BUT BECOME SCHOOLED AND INFORMED/EDUCATED about your taxes and its entire process.
You make money while you learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrAndy3 Great DIY Tax Product
This was my first time using Turbo Tax (Deluxe) and I found it to be very user-friendly. I plan to use it again for future income tax use. What made it easier and less stressful was having a copy of last year's taxes and other important income tax documents handy. It double checks your entries and even rates your possible risk for an audit. I highly recommend this product for anyone doing their own income taxes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MIS1938 Ugh
It took me forever to try to figure out how to use my credit to pay for my state filing. I had to go to advanced settings in explorer and click some odd box at the bottom of the options.
Not sure why this happened this year, as I have NEVER had this problem. I will never get that 2 hours back it took me to finally find the answer in some radom forum.
I tried calling but after about 45 minutes on hold. I gave up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarlSpark Helpful with the 1098-T from my son's college
When I received my son's college 1098-T, I was concerned that I would have to hire a tax adviser. Box 1 of the 1098-T stated that I had paid $0 toward eligible expenses. Box 2 contained expenses for both 2014-and 2015, even though my son had only attended the Fall 2014 semester. I was confused. I read Publication 970 and did not feel much better. Turbo Tax was able to interpret the 1098-T with no hassle. Thanks.

by jburnie Tax Frustration Fighter
The hardest part about doing taxes is collecting & gathering all the info documents & receipts required. The easy part is going step by step the through Turbo Tax Program. The only other hick up is when the program ask you for information from a previous years return by line item. If you transferred last years return to this years working return; shouldn't this years program already know that information?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark4AU2 TurboTax 2014 - Another easy experience
Fortunately TurboTax provided the Deluxe version at reasonable price as in the past, otherwise would not have purchased. I had read early reviews and began looking at competitor products. Since TurboTax resolved the pricing along with offering the deluxe version as in the past, I decided to stick with it. So I am satisfied and glad I could stick with their product. I recommend it since it worked as always for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saljau The fastest way of getting it done
I have been doing my returns for 13 years already using turbo tax at the beginning and now that I have my house I use turbo tax deluxe because I have to itemize or the program gives me the best option and I get the best of my return. It also gives me options to get different software if I want to plan in advance for next tax year. Thank you Turbo Tax for make things easy and not to expensive at the same time.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by GaryK910 pretty good, mostly easy
I've used TurboTax for 3 years now. It's easier than doing it by hand. I like being able to partly complete things or put estimated values in and then go back and finish it off. Last year I tried the promotional Amazon gift card and wasted a bunch of time because I wasn't allowed to have it because there was a difference of a few cents between the amount of refund I thought I was owed and what the IRS calculated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ordk90 quick and easy
Have been a customer for past 4 years. No complaints, yet. However, this year's issues made me nervous and leave me wondering about what will happen next year. Anticipate that my filing will get more complex due to changes ahead. Will the price go up (like this year, but was abated)?
Overall, like the program. Feel confident that I'm getting max deductions. Screens are easy to work through. Layout is functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amiszilla In a Flash
It was a flash filing tax. I am a 2nd-year TurboTax user. Two years in a row successfully and easily filing out taxes. I especially liked "Explain more" or "what's this?" links that are next to words, form numbers, or otherwise weird, complicated jargons that helped clarify any and all questions i had. My only issue is that i was not able to find where to "Enter all my Receipts" for itemized sales tax deductions.
