Rated 1 out of 5 by Louschulz Deteriorating Interview Process, Compartmentalized
You now have to buy a "Business" version of Turbo Tax if you are an individual taxpayer with W-2s and a schedule C for freelance income? There was a second download I had to install while preparing my return as well, although I can't remember what the topic was now. Turbo Tax is just creating more products for sale.
The interview process is so unintuitive and convoluted this year. I couldn't even bother to take the time to keep track of all the things that I hated this year. I have used Turbo Tax for many years and will be trying something else for 2015.

Our tax situation combines personal with a small business. Turbo Tax helps me focus on what gets reported on what lines. For the business, the lists of deductible expenses helped identify things that I could use... and helped determine under what category expenses got reported. For charitable mileage, the format made it easy to report repetitive trips made for each separate charity.

Have used this for the past four or five years and has been easy and feel very complete with the questions asked. Plus it has all the latest updates as those are almost impossible for an individual to follow. It brings forward all the data from a prior year and compares with the past year so you don't have to look at your prior year copies. Sure beats taking it out to a tax service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QueenofTaxes Still the easiest
I was worried about not being able to get all the features as I had last year, but thanks to the free upgrade, it went well. I am glad that they figured out that everyone was furious that they had to upgrade and went back to the old system.
It's still the best software I have used, so I will keep using it as long as they don't try to pull off a bait and switch like they did this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shell552 I love Turbo Tax and have probably used is for close to 20 yrs. now. I have a large family and do most of their returns. My only request would be that you allow a "print page" while you have something up on the screen. An example would be the "audit risk" page. Being able to print that for my 82-year-old mother would stop a lot of questions and would make he so much more confortable.

The only problem I had was TurboTax's forcing me to fill out some information for Form IRC 195 without giving me enough context to know what to put down in the blanks it wanted me to fill in. I had to write an explanation for the government to contact me if they needed more information and put in fake amounts of money and fake dates to get the program to go forward and e-file for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by melinda111 Great Product
Love this product. I am a bit skeptical about the need to purchase an upgraded product to include what was included in the past, farm and rental. Will reserve my total impressions until then when I see the bumped up price. Otherwise, TurboTax continues to exceed my expectations on ease of use and peace of mind after filing. And, Audit Defender is a great product to have just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldRon Overall Good Job
I've used TurboTax for more than 25 years without any problems. I don't expect any this year. This is the first time in all those years that I was a little uncomfortable with not being able to see what was going on. In your effort to make it more idiot-proof, you/ve taken some of the visibility from those of us who understand what's going on. That said, I will buy it again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkVanD Always easy and the best without exception.
Overall, it was extremely easy and exceptional as usual. The multi-state (reciprocal) state agreements do not work which is sometimes difficult. The walk-throughs are invaluable - starting with my first year 10+ years ago when the home office deduction gave instructions about use. I rely on TurboTax each year and have not had any problems in all the years of use. Thanks again Intuit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Turbochica Easy to use, except when it wasn't.
Felt it continues to be the best tax software out there and the improvements were great. However, I still think the business section needs work...maybe it was because it was an add on after folks put up a fuss with having it be a separate program, but for someone like us who work outside the home and also have a small home business, it wasn't as easy to navigate as I would have liked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tdalay45 Wizard Q&A sequence Confusion
2013 method of input of 1099-Misc caused a double entry and a bear to correct. The 2104 method of input has a section for the 1099-MISC but then immediately asked expense questions. This is a substantial change from the 2013 procedure.
Turbo Tax yearly change the format of Wizard and has caused problems with the reporting of Federal Tax information onto my State return from 2009-2013.

After using Proseries professionally for many years, where I could just type in forms and worksheets, I found it very difficult to follow the hoops that was required to complete a tax return. Form 1099B would not cooperate for me until I realized that I could delete it and start from scratch. My tax return using Proseries would have taken me an hour to do. Turbo tax took over 5 hours.

I have used Turbo Tax for many years now--I love it. There is no way I could handle the complications returns we have without Turbo Tax. If not for them I would have to pay a very large amount for an accountant. I take my time and go step by step and review and come back to finish return later. Excellent program --thank you! I feel like I am my own accountant and I really do enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kama12 Pretty painless in the end
Setting aside the PR disaster aspects of the vendor...
Product downloaded and installed properly first time directly from vendor web site.
Moderately complex retirement IRA / 401K / and investment details handled smoothly.
Comfortable that the results are auditable should that be required.
Would like to have the option of seeing schedules built out as the Q&A process is going forward.

I have been using TurboTax since they first put it on the shelf. I used to push a pencil and do taxes for many people but I started using Turbo Tax when it hit the market. I can say I have never had a problem with it and as far as I am concerned as long as they are in business it is the ONLY program I will use. It guides you through everything you need to get for you max tax benefits.

The States programs sometimes, it picks up erroneous values for income etc.(glitches) already imputed in the Federal Return.
I file Federal and states NY,OH and my resident NJ.
My Federal return is very long, the program do not have detailed "tax item Tree file" to allow you to jump back and forth in the step by step input procedure! "Show topic is not well treed". Download 1st. State program is defaulted for resident State it is no good for multiple state users like me.
State income tax instruction booklets should be included with the State downloading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ProfessorJoe New for 2014 Tax Year
Either prior years were inadequate or this year has new tax rules--TurboTax prepared and filed an Indiana return even though I have only passive income. In prior years this was not prepared.
Had to request a Schedule C module to be added to Premier version for a minimal Schedule C entry.
Took several days to figure out the eFiling issue. Had to reset IE which I do not use, as a rule.
