Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better and Easier Every Year I really appreciate that TurboTax seems to get simpler every year. My taxes are complicated - Schedule C, home office, 2 rental properties including partial rental of my home. So I really appreciate that Turbo Tax seems to make my job easier each year. The biggest improvement I would love to see is the ability to show your tax information for 5 or 10 years compared to the current year. I've been using TurboTax that long, so the data should be there....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Filing When on a form, needs to be a way to jump to that exact part of the Step by Step. Even further, when on a specific line on a specific form, being able to switch over to Step by Step from the exact line would be a great help. I understand most of the lines on the forms are the end result of worksheets. That is great tracing backwards from form to worksheet to worksheet. Just need the ability to go straight to Step by Step rather than cascading down and going through all the questions again and again just to reach the area associated to the line on the form. Keith

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better All in all this program is not bad. Not happy that I could do personal returns on my Mac but not my corporate. Would love it if Turbo Tax would make corporate return software for Mac. Also some things are difficult to find like how to amend return, and would love live chat option or being able to talk to a live person with questions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Good and The Glitch This is my first time using TurboTax. I found it streamlined my strategy for filing taxes, helped me organize data, and informed me of considerations I had not made - such as filing income from out of state, even if small or renter's credit in the State of California. All of these positives resulted in momentum I have not had before when filing taxes. As much momentum as the positives created, there were some glitches that threatened to prevent me from being able to file the return at all. Momentum Kill. As a result, I have some "fixes" of my own for TurboTax (TT). FIX #1: when recommending a fix PLEASE provide a link back to the page and/or section on the site where that issue can be found. At least list the location of the fix somewhere obvious on the same window as the fix. This would have saved me HOURS and huge frustration. FIX #2 - Form 3544. In a nutshell, users beware of a list of questions in the State Return section for self-employeed filers that mentions something like "credit raptures". AVOID answering any questions in this section unless it does apply to you. DO NOT put in a number "0" as an answer. BIG MISTAKE. You cannot un-do this once you enter "0". It will show up as a fix when you go to review your return. The fix will mention FORM 3544. You will have no idea what that is or where to find it on the site to "fix" this issue. You will then turn to the help center and read a very dooming answer stating once you enter a "0", you cannot un-do the damage. It gets worse! Answering questions regarding Form 3544 even with the number "0" will increase your tax liability. Help Center will let you know that the only way to undo the damage done is deleting your state return. However, you cannot delete your state return if you have "already registered it or purchased it" according to the help center. I had not done either and there was still no option to edit or delete my CA state return. SOLUTION: Fortunately, a friend of mine suggested looking through "forms" and to attempt deleting Form 3544. VOILA! I would have missed the filing deadline if it were not for my friend. TurboTax was no friend to me here. Also prior to the Form 3544 glitch, one of the fixes required that I add a pin number, my birthdate and today's date in order to file. When I did so, TT would not accept today's date. After I figured out the Form 3544 problem, TT accepted today's date. Not sure what the issue was there. In all, there were 4 fixes recommended where I found it next to impossible to fix the issues and this almost prevented me from filing by the deadline. In these 4 instances, there was either insufficient information to fix the issues - such as where to go to fix issues I had not heard of or encountered anywhere on the site previously - OR there was simply a glitch in the TurboTax system such as not accepting today's date. On the whole, TurboTax is brilliantly laid out and has taken an immense amount of factors into consideration. It also has a quick response time technically to all entries. Please Fix the Fixes! The feedback here would be such a simple way to make it significantly more user friendly than it already is. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for most things If you own properties in multiple states and finally have to claim income on one of them you will need to call customer service to resolve because turbo tax will give you some bogus numbers expecting you to pay a ton of money in a state where you did not make much money,,,, now I know so it is easy; glad I called customer service; they resolved it right away.
