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 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 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 123me 2014 Turbo Tax Software
Have been using this software for about 10 years and have been very satisified. The software takes you through everything you need to know step by step. It even walked me through amending returns for a previous year. I only wish that filing state returns was more cost efficient. Each state e-filing is $30 vs. sending via snail mail, which is more like $2. If the price was closer to $15, I would consider e-filing.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlanBNJ Generally very good
It would be a quite a bit easier in several places if the list of things had the ability to sort by name and/or date, with the charities list being one of the key ones to me. I give to many (too many probably) charities, and not always the same ones as last year. My accounting program can sort by name, but it can't sort by the order in TurboTax, making it time consuming to make sure what I've donated gets entered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JustJayne1 Easy to Use Software; Update Process a Pain
I like using TurboTax -- it helps me to be organized and not forget things. The prior year comparison is very helpful. However, the auto-update feature fails every time and the Check for Solutions option does not work. Federal updates had to be downloaded through a manual process which did not include the state update. Fortunately once the federal update was finally done, the automatic state update finally worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TxRocketGuy2015 Installation needs more feedback
You need to add more feedback to the installation program. There were times, sometimes up to 30 seconds, when I wasn't sure that the installation was working as it should. Please add a progress bar and messages telling me what's going on so I can be confident that nothing got hung up during the installation.
Other than that I thought the program provided good information and the walk throughs were easy to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FDLguy solid software
I have used TurboTax for more than 10 years and have never had an IRS review or correction to the forms filed.
It does a good job of being usable for even a tax novice, but any additional knowledge makes it a very good tax preparation program.
I have a fairly simple return so I am unable to appreciate all of TurboTax's sophistication, but what I am able to use including schedule C and associated forms, is great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nbdsmith Costly $25.00 State filing surprise
The Software is relatively easy to install and use, but removing key elements of the software and then apologizing is bad business. Intuit has had their mistakes in the past, but why do you want to chase customers away with missing forms. Waiting until the very last screen to inform you that state e-filing will cost $25 really put me off. It will be time to switch to a different company for tax software next year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kialea Not so great
I thought I would like to do my own taxes. It was ok but I paid for the program and then I was charged more fees at the end of the filing. It said I could do my state taxes for free and it still charged my $19.99 for them . So I spent a total of 49.99 for the program they charged me another $34 for federal and then for the state. If we already paid for the program why do we have to pay more at the end? I was upset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dar56345 Easy to use
I have used Turbo Tax since 2008, and was a bit frustrated this year when I had to purchase the actual software because I needed to file a couple forms that were not included in the online version. I hope that I will be able to access this years filing at turbotax.com as that has been a big plus for me in the past few years, being able to sign into my turbo tax account and print a prior years return if I needed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniMac So much easier than I imagined!
Ever since the easy days of 1040EZ were over, I've had my taxes prepared for me by someone else. Unfortunately, this year that was no longer an option. So, I decided to try TurboTax and I am quite thrilled with my experience. You took a painful process and made it so much easier than I imagined. Your step by step guidance and helpful pop-up info windows eased a great deal of my stress and fears. Thank you TurboTax!

Been with Turbo Tax for years. and some years they are great in changing to the needs of the people, others, been some hiccups in the programs that has created issues you might need to do on your own. this year has been a pain. they have the same name but does not offer the same components that last year did, some have very similar name but does not offer the state. But sure does make it easy if they are all there.

Turbo Tax is great for a trusted way to do your taxes. I had a complicated income situation, with multiple sources of non taxable and taxable. They helped me straighten it all out. Reading the box helped me to decide which program to purchase. We have been using Turbo Tax for over 15 years. It was for only Mac's when we started. We have had the other company do it one year. They messed it up. Turbo Tax is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ESevenski Overall, very happy
Overall I am very happy with this software and e-file service. I have been using Turbo Tax since the mid-late 1990's. Like most every other user, I was disappointed that the Deluxe version no longer contained the basic investment forms, but was very happy when Intuit realized this was a mistake and returned this function through an update. I was also very happy with how quickly the state e-file issue was corrected.

I have used Turbo Tax for many years except for last year and am impressed with the improvements and support provided. This year I had to complete my mom's taxes following her death in October. It was straightforward and relatively easy to do. It took some time to determine how to start a second return using my Intuit account but it was right in the menu bar! Sometimes it is the little things that can be confusing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharlieSteen Excellent product!
TurboTax is extremely easy to use as it walks you through every step of your returns. The only thing I don't like about it is the way it returns you to the list of charitable deductions when you are done with each charity - instead of immediately bringing you to the bottom of the page so you can hit the add a charity button, it brings you to the top and you have to scroll all the way back to the bottom of the page.

Easy to use nice and easy no surprises except for the high fee to use premium services. Paid with Credit Card instead and saved me $39.99 I'll I had to paid for was my State $24.99 and that was all. Bought the software at Costco for $49.99 so my total out of pocket to do my own taxes was $74.98 instead of paying my tax preparer $98.00 dollars. A total savings of $23.02 in my pocket. Turbo Tax was easy and painless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sr71bbmach3 See you next year.
In this day and age it seems customer service is becoming more rare all the time. I was becoming frustrated
with a couple of tax issues, no fault of TurboTax, and I was reaching the end of my rope. I contacted Turbo Tax by phone and what a pleasure it was to hear a friendly voice on the other end of the line that was calming and ready to help. Problems solved.. (Thanks Tami). I’ll be using TurboTax again next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by asuprof Good Service...but
Every few years I seem to have an issue with Turbo Tax and my previous year's return. I'm sure it is usually my fault. But, I don't understand why they don't tell you anywhere to save not just the PDF but the .tax201x file as well. To do so, you have to click on the file menu while you are in the software. Otherwise, you will be entering all your information anew the next year (the PDF transfer didn't work for me),

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanFranKellie I love Turbo Tax!
I use Turbo Tax almost every year and am very pleased. I work in public relations, and math and calculations aren't exactly my strength---so I am glad I can trust Turbo Tax to ask the right questions and find the biggest tax refunds for me. Unlike other programs that slap an ugly "DRAFT" over the forms you save on your computer, Turbo Tax keeps them clean so if you need to print them for any reason, they look good.

Nice look and feel. Good instructions. Would like better integration from state to state...
Would like it to decide if I can save by filing separately/married. It did not consider factors like differences in income that might have saved. It took me a lot of effort to slog through two more tax filings to discover that it was better to file jointly but a program could have asked a very few questions and told me that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kakwdc Not as thorough as previous years
I have used Turbo Tax for over 10 years. I will continue to use it. It is a great program for the money.
However I was a little disappointed because I did not get prompted for one of the state deductions that I knew I was eligible for until I re-did my state return and chose to fill in all my information instead of having Turbo Tax automatically finish my state return from the information I put in my federal return.

I had a choice: go on my own or walk thru every topic. As I received my documents, I went through and inserted the information. Once I received the final 1099, I went from the beginning to ensure I missed nothing. WAHOO, done with my Tax Return in 40 minutes. Turbo Tax has saved me money since I started using it 3 years ago. Thank You Turbo Tax, you make my life that much easier when it comes to completing my taxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuantumFiler I think I did well with this tax return.
This year was once again a good experience in preparing my return. The organization of questions and data requests are very good making it difficult to make a error. The error checks are very effective in getting all things correct. The electronic E-files are painless, except for the filing fees, of course.
I plan to continue with TurboTax next year, if the complete filing cycle goes as well as preparing my return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mpang quick and easy
It was very easy to use and made doing my taxes easy. The program found deductions I wouldn't have been aware of or thought about if I had done my taxes on my own. Using just the information I gathered before starting my taxes and what I thought my deductions were, I would have owed a pretty large payment. Instead, the program asked for some additional information that I was able to easily obtain and I got a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anonymous76 Taxes were complicated this year!
This year I realized that I answered one of the questions wrong last year on Turbo Tax and had to do an amendment. The question for 1099-c Cancellation of debt was very vague and confusing. I had to look at the forms to be more clear and do a lot of research online to make sure I answered it right. I hope the amendment goes through okay and we get money back! Otherwise, Turbo Tax is great for the everyday tax payer.

by SueandRalph I was dreading it but it was terrific!
We dread doing our taxes every year and up until this year we have had Jackson Hewitt preparing them for us. We had nothing but problems with JH so we decided to try Turbo Tax. It was terrific!!! Clear precise instructions, they walk you through every step (and boy do we need that) I loved it and I loved the fact that it got me involved so I know a lot more about where my money is going. Can't say enough, I'm sold!!

I have been using TurboTax since the early 1990's. Not even sure how long. It makes doing my taxes so easier. I have always fretted about making a mistake and having the IRS come down on even the smallest thing but TurboTax takes that worry away. There is always a chance that I can make a mistake but as simple as my taxes are I doubt it! Thanks TurboTax for offering a great piece of software for the taxpayers to use!
