Rated 5 out of 5 by edfrankt Filing the Federal Tax Return
The program gave me a choice to enter everything in my own manner OR be walked through each of the items they had listed. Everything was so easy and it compared my last year's filing with what I had entered this year. Great for checking if you missed anything or if something had to be added.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dorian033 Tough Year for Intuit product...required upgrade.
After decades of using Turbotax, I almost jumped ship. If they had not upgraded my software without cost or grief, I would be gone. VERY poor business strategy to require upgrade at point of filing of the return at $40 (even with a delayed rebate of $25!!!).
The product is solid, as corrected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Curtmumc ?Turbo tax again
Be careful what you buy. Started out with the deluxe version, then they required you upgrade for a few questions (Premiere) as if that wasn't enough, then I needed to spend more $ for a business questions. Not upfront with me on what I needed.

I really did like the software. I am a first year business owner with not to much income and I was able to still create my k-1 and get going on a lot I didn't realize I was about to so with this program.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MacUser2015 Mac version extremely buggy
Quality of TurboTax just keeps going down. Most likely last year on the software after 15 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RoggieRotten I found it difficult to use
Once again the software was difficult to use. It didn't transfer business expenses properly from Quickbooks. Some "more info" and "Help" items would show an error instead of information or help of any kind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jen45213 Great with 1 Exception
My experience was great until I got ready to e-file. I don't mind the $19.99 fee, but that wasn't enough to get me through the e-file process. There was another $34.99 fee that was necessary, or you needed to call 877-559-8824, but you can only call during certain hours Monday-Friday. I'm trying to do this on Saturday! There should be a way to e-file on Saturday without being penalized. Now, I have no choice but to mail my return or pay an extra fee of 34.99. This process will take months longer to receive my return (by check) rather than direct deposit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by allysnana not as easy as last year
a lot of data didn't transfer into this year's return - took me 3 times longer to do my taxes this year because I had to comb through last year's calculations and worksheets to fill in the gaps

I've used Turbo Tax many years. I think they are trying to do a good job but I think the tax codes are getting more and more difficult that interpreting what the questions are can be difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Refundtoo Great Tax Software program
Easy to use, especially on a year after year basis. All the basic information is transferred for one year to the next. I really like the way it steps through all of the income, deduction and credit categories.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AshleyMA HorribleWaste of Money
I purchased this because I was asked not to efile the 1099's this year and to print them on the actual forms. I asked the IRS and they said that the 1099's must be printed on actual forms provided by them or the ones you can purchase. So I went and bought these forms after purchasing turbo tax because if you do Turbo Tax online then you have to efile and if you do it in the software you have to do them by mail.... So wouldn't you think that the software would print the information on the form instead of the actual form template itself as well? Or there should atleast be an option to. I could have went through and did this myself.... whats the point? I had to type the info into the software anyways..... so your telling me I could have just typed in the info I typed into the software straight onto the form and it would have done the same thing? Actually it would have been better, would have saved me time... including money. DONT PURCHASE THIS FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF 1099's!!!!!!!!!!! I cant speak on any other part of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryanwolf Too big, too slow, too confusing
Too big: did not run on my windows xp (2005) cpu, but took over 6 hours before I gave up.
too slow: On more modern wife's window 7 cpu, can't tell when it takes commands because no instant user feedback. Does not take advantage of user input (slow time) to do a lot of the background tasks which it onl;y seems to do after program sets itself up.
Too Confusing: In early January all I could do was enter 1099 data for empoyees, but had to wait till very end to be told forms and irs not ready. Please tell me right up front.
After waiting and entering existing file, I could not get to my earlier entries. It would have helped if re-entry put me to this page so I could start my small business taxes.
On alpha version I would not even claim it was a beta version shipped to me on disc, I was so frustrated, because everytime I wanted to input business data - I ended up in personal form. I hope pushing 'small business taxes button at top of this page will get me back.
You are so specific with walk through -- An entry page asking me nicely what I wanted to do, including feedback that business income and loss statements were not complete would have saved me a great deal of frustration.
Lastly, don't ship unusable products -- take down my info and when forms come out, update forms with my answers and inform me of needed changes then.
I can't believe you caN SELL A PRODUCT LIKE THIS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tommmyb Great improvements
I have been using Turbo Tax for 20 years now and it keeps getting better each year. My favorite improvements this year are the text notifications on filing and how fast and easy the E filing process has become.

Rated 1 out of 5 by iamnotalone I was to get 1 free state return and I did not
plus I went on line and file for others creating an account and only got charged 29.99 and the state taxes were free and they were not charged to process their refund on your website
I paid for your soft ware
I got charged for the process my refund
The promised free state I did not get
I will print up every single tax return I do this year and I will go else where next year

I have been using Turbo Tax for years. We started a home based business and I had no problem exporting the info from QB. We got everything back we could have gotten from a professional at a fraction of the cost.

Have used Turbo Tax for many years. Each year it has become more "user friendly". Best choice is to use all "Guide Me" options to make sure you get advantage of all tax saving options.

I use home and business turbo tax. Running a small business from my home plus working a regular job would require me to fill out about 30 different tax forms, Turbo Tax makes this easy with step by step instructions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pixley Feeling squeezed
I, like many, were unimpressed with the price hike this year. For 2012, I paid $40 for the forms I needed. This year: $85. And I still have to pay to file state return. I came VERY close to using someone else and will think seriously about it if the price goes up again for 2015.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dittohead58 Will not be using TurboTax next year
I paid over $80.00 for TurboTax Home and Business and then when I got to the State filing tax part it wants another $40.00 to do that. FORGET IT. For that kind of money I will take it to a professional preparer and not fool with this myself. I am so disappointed in TurboTax this year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stan73 Sales Tax suggestions
Sales Tax - We wanted to use the 'receipt' method of sales tax since we purchase/leased 2 cars in 2014. Turbo tax frowned on this and made it difficult to walk through this approach.
My credit card company's Year End Review was used as the source document for my receipts; it was extremely close to the numbers created by Turbo Tax without the autos. SUGGEST USING CREDIT CARD 'END OF YEAR'.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wrlang why increased cost
Now having to use Home and Business version to file schedule C doubles my cost to use TurboTax. Unless next year Intuit goes back to including schedule C in the Deluxe version I will be looking at other tax filing programs!!

Turbo Tax is no longer the excellent program it was. I have been using it for many years, but maybe complacency has set in. May decide next year to use a different software.
