Rated 5 out of 5 by Pjay66 Took the complicated and made it easy
Loved it! For years, used the Deluxe since our taxes were relatively simple. This year, started a home business, so used the Home and Business. I was al little scared since this was the first time trying to do taxes for the business, but found the software product just as easy as the Deluxe. It offered the same ease and explanations of complicated items as before. I'm really happy and confident in the finished product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VARockfish Not as good as in prior years
It finally worked properly but took a few hours to correct. After purchase and realizing the deluxe version no longer supported investments I called and was sent a free replacement CD. Upon installation I found that one didn't support the state. Calls and two hours on the phone resulted in a free download and reset which finally worked. Hope 2015 provides for better info and a better process. Otherwise all worked well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by fbflyfaster Good, but Intuit products for Mac not compatible
Quite simple - I purchased Quicken for Mac early in the year, expecting easier record keeping. Much to my dismay, there is no .txf file capability with the Mac version of Quicken. To add insult to injury, Quickbooks online also lacks this function. Therefore all of that hard entered data, had to be re-entered in Turbotax, more than doubling the total time spent on taxes this year versus my simple spreadsheet last year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleD48 I have always gotten great results with TT
I am a long time user of TurboTax. It has always worked well and is a very thorough query into my past year's financial activity. When I am done, I always feel that no stone was left untouched. Turbo Tax makes certain to ask the questions and it is then up to you to give the correct answer. But, when in doubt, there is always a method to ask a question or get detailed explanations to the specific issue being addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert914 Turbotax 2014 - Easy to use
This software just keeps getting better. I have used it and its predecessor MacinTax since the 1990s. I enjoy using TurboTax, have full confidence that it is correct, and sleep better at night knowing I am saving by not having to hire an accountant.
I highly recommend TurboTax for all but the most complicated tax situations (those of you who are most-complicated already use accountants, if you have trusts, K-1s, etc.).

Rated 4 out of 5 by B2JWW 2014 Return
I'd like to see more easy explanation of the concepts as the flow goes forward - this may have been disrupted this year with the attempt to take the small business group out of the deluxe package. That was NOT a positive move and may make people like myself have to reconsider next year. Also, Would like to see more interest in additional uses per individual copy on a PC for families that are larger than only 5 persons.

Wow - I got totally lost - job, unemployment, rental house, home biz, started new S Corp, 401k rollover, military retirement, disability pay... my head spinning... spent days trying to get it together, called a tax pro and finally bought TurboTax Biz... got me through all filings in a few hours.... when I see my accountant, I am sure she'll have a lot less clean up to set up for next year, which will save me money too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kbrowne Pardon Me, Did You Say Big Refund!!!!
I have been using Turbo Tax for years and it keeps getting better and more user friendly....if that's possible. I help my family members with their return and everyone is pleasantly pleased and surprised when they start seeing their refund go up & up!! I would recommend this to everyone as it is a step by step process and the information and understanding it provides is never lacking. Home & Business is a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flintlock50 Occasionally frustrated
After I had finished the return I wanted to try a few different scenarios so I went back to the beginning. It would NOT prompt me for retirement or social security income, not matter what I did. I finally had to select that manually from the topic list. If I hadn't known that I needed to enter retirement income, I would never have looked at the topic list. I would have assumed TurboTax would have prompted me. It didn't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oteyone Very Disappointed in new pricing/version packaging
I feel as a self-employed, small (and I mean small) business, it is difficult enough to make any headway. It was always great that for less than $50, I could accomplish my taxes easily and with confidence.
When I saw the breakdown and that I needed the top of the line version for 2014 tax year, I was shocked, then disappointed, then angry. No options at that point. But I have a year now to shop around. I'll know better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayNH Turbo Tax is Easy to Use
I have used Turbo Tax for many years now and the greatest thing about it is importing last years information. It is helpful to see what I did last year so I can be sure my return is accurate this year.
It is hard to edit inside the forms, but fortunately this only has to be done if you made a mistake and can't figure out where in the interview it was. So going to the forms is more direct, but using the forms is tricky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QueenB64 States - no efile
Software leads you to believe you can efile your state taxes even when you have more than 2 states but you can't!! I have learned the hard way but NOT this year. If you have more than one state to file in - you must mail it in. I wish Turbo Tax would update their software to account for that. The past two years I paid for VA efile and then had to send hard copy additionally. I did not got my $39.99 back for state efile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BRK1 I've been using Turbo Tax for years.
I've used Turbo Tax for more than 10 years. It has never caused me a major problem, and helps organize the filing process and reduce the amount of hand calculation. Help could easily be better -- in fact, it has been better in prior years with useful videos that I don't see this year. It was particularly helpful this year when I moved from Virginia to New York and when there were changes in tax law that I had to master.

by EHandl Got Me Through Complexities of Business Sale
I had a business sale to handle though a K-1 form for a Sub-S corp. which was a long-term business gain. By following the interview questions, I was able to enter my basis for the sale along with my proceeds, and it all flowed nicely together with the rest of the return. I had to do some supplemental calculations to figure my basis for the sale, but had the records to do so. I am very pleased with the TurboTax product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mistreated Worst experience ever!
Had more problems with this Turbo Tax filing than anything else ever encountered. From beginning to end I had one bad experience after another and even though I have been a loyal Turbo Tax user in the past I will tell everyone that I know regarding the glitches and I will search out other brands of programs that are user-friendly and other companies that can remember me from past years and also remember my old password.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CSSB I won't use this program again!
I have used TurboTax for years, and was always able to do my self employment and farm taxes on the basic program. This year, not the case. I ended up paying $100 for this software--NOT WORTH IT! I will use something else next year, or just do them myself--it's slower but not that difficult.
And don't tell me that I can deduct the cost off my taxes. I already know that. It doesn't make me feel any better about the cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherylBeryl I LOVE TURBOTAX!
I've been using Turbotax for many years now. I use Business for my two S-corporations and Home and Business for my personal taxes which include a rental property. I used to use an accountant and now do them myself in a very small amount of time, which is relatively painless and even sometimes amusing, depending on the cute graphics that are included in the program. Their sense of humor takes the sting out of the process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by solongturbo So Long Turbo Tax
This is probably the last time I use Turbo Tax. Needed 2 upgrades to file my federal because the forms I needed were not included as they had been in years past.
I was going to efile and went through all the steps to get a PIN for my new wife only to find we couldn't efile cuz we don't live together.
Tried to do both filing methods joint and separately and had to change/reenter info because TT treated it like a new form.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DHCrocks eh...had to pay taxes
I really the like import last year feature it saves a lot of time.
What I don't like is that they charge an extra $10 for schedule C and the $20 for state e-filing. That should all be included in the purchase cost.
if you use the navigate feature and do from start to finish in one step its really easy but if you want to go back and make changes it it cumbersome to try and find a specific item, must go thru extra steps.

by ObsidianG Much easier than paper
This is the first time I did e-filing via TurboTax and found the experience quite easy compared with doing it on paper in the past. I also filed in the past using a tax preparation service, and on top of the cost, my filing was filled with errors.
I liked the way TurboTax walked me through each of the steps using layman's terms. Filing taxes is a negative in general. TurboTax made this chore a whole lot easier. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by RRRay Improvements Suggested
I have used Tubo Tax for the last several years. I would like to be able to access previous years taxes from a computer other than the one I completed the taxes on. It would be nice to be able to store and access previous years taxes on my new computer and surface. To do 2015 taxes I will have to use my old computer because data from 2014 to forward into Tubo Tax 2015 will not be available on my new computer and Surface.

ACA section needs work! In January I still had COBRA policy due to problems with Covered CA website then Feb. to Dec. with marketplace policy. How do I enter January's premium? -- It only wanted to accept Marketplace insurance and I needed to include all insurance payment for deduction as self employed.
Also program wants to print multiple copies of estimated tax payment coupons if you print for submission and file copy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sheilaws Love Turbotax but....
The product is thorough and easy to use for the most part. My issue is with the final reviews and issues requiring correction. I could not get answers to assist me in how to make the correction. I had to go out to the internet and google to get help after struggling for three hours with one issue. I have been a turbotax user since its inception and never had this problem before. I would like to see more assitance return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TaxpayerArn I normally like Turbo but!
Have been having an ordeal with my 1040 and three days later I am not sure if the 1040 I filed was ever accepted by the IRS. From the very first it told me I already filed and it has rejected my return five additional times. Makes me suspect that someone else may have filed a return using my SS# either maliciously or by accidentally. I guess I will find out soon enough. Hope it is not too costly or difficult to finalize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annie104 Makes life easier
Have used this software for many years. Was a bit disturbed when they changed the name of the software I needed to file (Personal and Business). I ended up with business only, assuming it included my personal tax return, but it didn't. I had to return and call to get a new order.
Don't change the name of the software after all these years Intuit.
Otherwise, the best tax filing system and I check them out every few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Getbigrefunds Another easy year
I cannot recommend Turbo Tax more. I have used it for over ten years and every year it just gets better. The interface between QuickBooks is so very easy and anything that needs tweaking takes just going over the numbers and adding or subtracting on whatever item you happen to be working on.
I also like where you can jump to the form you are working on so you can see the overall page and keep a sense of what is going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMM67 Federal Format is Excellent---OKLA Not So Much
Love the Federal tax system, the state system not so much. I have to file as a non-resident of Oklahoma as I am a non-resident. The Turbo Tax program would not let me enter the tax withheld from our gas production leases in Oklahoma...result was that Turbo Tax indicated we OWED Oklahoma taxes when in fact we were owed a REFUND! No good at all. Had to print Oklahoma state forms and fill them in manually...again...not good.

TurboTax is easily downloaded and used. I have used TurboTax for years for taxes including 2 businesses (including depreciation schedules), investment income, and a partnership and have been very pleased. The 2014 edition is improved in ease of entry and helpful information. The BIG downside is that instead of using the Basic edition I have always used, this year I had to upgrade all the way to the most expensive edition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bluegrass2116 Can't get it to go "final"
Despite already reviewing both state and federal submissions with no errors, electronically submitting both successfully, accepted by state/federal, and refunds received from both returns, saving files in every conceivable configuration and completing every survey, etc I can think of., I STILL cannot get TurboTax to consider this tax prep "finished". Very frustrating that it still insists there is something I must finish.
