Rated 5 out of 5 by specialkay173 I love turbo tax I've used turbo tax for years and I find it extremely easy to use. I'm glad it was made easier this year by not having to type in charities addresses. I think it is extremely user friendly and have recommended it to family members who also use it now too. I think that speaks for itself, because they used to take their taxes to be done. I know we get more money back by doing it ourselves because a lot of these questions were not asked by our previous tax preparers. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GeneralTurbo Turbo helps me get over the major Tax hurdles For the first pass TurboTax is totally awesome. Checks are made. Questions asked. Math is done. Explanations are given. Help is offered. Data is entered once and Forms are filled out in multiple places. Rules are followed. Did I say the Math was done? Oh yeah, I did say the Math is done for you all over the place. This great, saved me tons of hours. From major work if i did it my self to general easy with TurboTax. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loretta28 Fast and Easy Filing. I am pleased with Turbo Tax product. I was impressed with the text message I received within 18 hours. My efile was rejected. My error. I was impressed with the easy fix and able to efile again within minutes and "no extra charge". That's a plus!!! The list for charitable donations was extremely helpful. I just make the list in a small spiral book of donations and then count items and enter the info. It was so easy and it actually calculated a bigger amount than my estimated guess. Thank You.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NewLandlord Rental & MA Health Ins Sections Need Improvement I bought this product specifically b/c I bought a multifamily in 2013 and became a landlord for the first time in my life. The rental expense entry format is poor. Most expenses fluctuate month to month, so asking for a monthly amount for Turbo Tax to multiply by 12 to get the annual expense is counterproductive. I had to create an Excel spreadsheet to enter and total all my expenses by category in order to get the amounts to enter manually. I also had to make several manual edits to Schedule E items calculated by Turbo Tax b/c it only allocates rental expenses based on one allocation %. Not all rental expenses are allocated the same. Unlike repairs to common areas, repairs solely to within the rental unit are 100% deductible. Also water & sewer can be allocated differently than other expenses. It can be allocated based on number of people in units, which can make a big difference if the renters have a lot of kids. The depreciation for owner-occupied multi-families needs more explanations I'm not sure if I did it right or not. I multiplied my basis in the whole property (and the land) by the rental % to get the basis for depreciation, although the instructions seemed to indicate one should enter the basis of the whole multifamily, which would include the owner's unit. The MA HC Form section asks, "did your employer offer health insurance?" when it should ask," did your employer offer health insurance that met minimum coverage requirements?" My employer offered insurance, but it did NOT meet the minimum standards. The religious health insurance exemption screen is confusing. I did not request a religious exemption, but the screen should ask, "Did you receive health care in 2013 even though you are claiming a religious exemption?" Instead, it asks, ""Did you receive health care in 2013?", which is a much broader question unrelated to religion. One final point, why are you printing the date and time of the Turbo Tax return preparation on the MA filing forms, making it obvious I'm a fewer hours late with my filing? It's not on the federal forms. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by CherylTheTruth4 Better then going outside, I was afraid I had some owing issues, and I was well I am still in a separation in my marriage, I just moved(downsized) ALONE!! I was feeling like MEH!! I searched online but no one interested me, and I was just watching TV and THERE U WERE so Thanks Turbo Tax, u made this so easy for me. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by mbprincess73 Best product ever HOORAY!! I have used turbo tax every year since 2007 because it is very easy to use with the guide me thru steps!! Also the low cost to file and to use the program software. April 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by dumbjimmy Did not have a good time this year. I ran out of paper printing my reviews. Seems that TurboTax would have a few choices of what to print. I.E. Just the forms that have to be sent; Just the 4 estimated tax sheets; The lead in sheets should only be typed once, not ever time you want a copy of "JUST" the sheets you send to IRS. Over all I was not as satisfied this year as in past years ( 08, 09, 10, 11, 12) and probably will not buy your software next year. April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by MBinFW Good, but has a few bugs We have used TurboTax for several years, and it has been a reliable tax program. However, every year I always encounter a few glitches that make it less than perfect. For example, in this year's edition, I accidentally clicked "Yes" I have a 1099-Misc form to input (when I really did not). Even though, I did not enter anything in this section, no matter what I did, I could not figure out how to get the related forms to a 1099-MISC to go away. This made the process a bit frustrating and not as user friendly as it could be. Overall, the program is good, and I would recommend it, if you have the patience to overlook this kind of bug that continues to exist after all these years. April 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by BrittStar Very helpful but in need of improvement Turbo tax is always a helpful method of filing taxes. It helps you understand how to answer all of the questions and fill out the w2 form without paying someone else to do it for you. The only issue that I've had this year, and this issue occurred with two separate tax returns that I attempted to file. I got an alert saying that there was an update needed to be able to file the returns however when I ran the updates and tried filing again I got the same error message. I ended up having to send both returns in via mail. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary102 Ready You questioned my 1099R. I had to call the IRS and OPM to find out why you questioned it; OPM told me it was okay. April 16, 2014

Rated 2 out of 5 by ptw45 deluxe not handling k1 T he printing is too complicated vs older version April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by MaxCredit No PIN # my returns were rejected. I worked with turbotax and my tax returns were rejected. I never came to any screen the first time I filed to ask for any PIN or AGI. My program shutdown without notice a few times, and said it was recoverying my tax files, and each time my tax due was higher. I'm interested to know if I redo this return will my tax amount due be the same. I was havimg alot of shutdowns on April 15th. Maybe when I move to a more surburban area of GA I won't have so many problems with shutdowns. I will never wait to efile on the last day again. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptBWWatts Easy All in all, I could Not have done my taxes without it. The cost was very reasonable and it checked for many more deductions than any accountant or tax preparer ever has. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by PixieMagic 19th TurboTax Return Filed Looking Forward to 20th Having used TurboTax for 19 consecutive years, should speak volumes about me being a satisfied customer and about my level of confidence using this product to prepare my family's tax return accurately and completely, year after year! A couple of years ago, after much debate with family and friends who were using other tax preparation programs, I actually went as far as purchasing my usual TurboTax as well as two other well known competitor's programs and used each one to prepare my tax return for that year! After a thorough side by side, feature by feature and pros and cons comparison, I concluded, without a doubt, that I will continue using my trusted and dependable TurboTax! I can't speak for everyone, as everybody's needs and circumstances are different, but for someone in my situation who owns a house, who itemizes expenses and helps family members to prepare their own tax returns, I honestly can say that personally, I haven't found another program that does it better and more accurately than TurboTax!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GECCO I Survived I don't always like all the time I invest in doing taxes, but what I do appreciate about TurboTax is that at least I'm in control and I know what's going on with my taxes. It's not left up to some pencil pusher tax expert. Because if he/she is having a bad day, then it becomes my wallet that ultimately pays for his/her incompetence. More importantly, through TurboTax, I understand the nuisances in the law and how to strategize for next years taxes. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by SheilaAyers Excellent Program I have used TurboTax for years and love it. Very user friendly April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sandybandy All in all, I have been using Turbo Tax for more than 10 years. Never been audited and more important I saved $325 that the accountant charges to file my taxes. Yoohoo! to that! April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Karmina Great Everything was great and they even had a save option for not everyone can print a copy at the exact instant they should. April 16, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by TaxFallBack No Stock Sale I have used TurboTax for seven years now and found it to be very good. This year I made a mistake and purchased an upgraded package that I did not need and was upset to find that I could not downgrade. I thought that I had a stock sale in 2013 so I brought the premier version which is the lowest version that can be used to report a stock sale. It turns out that my stock sale was actually in January 2014. So, I could have used a less costly version. When I investigated how to downgrade I found the language that says that Turbotax does not allow you to downgrade so I paid approximately $30 for no reason. I should have thought twice when it asked me twice if I wanted to upgrade. That was very disappointing to pay for a feature that I did not need. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warp simple and effective Simply put - wouldn't it be easier if all returns has to be filed using this system and the IRS just paid the bill to make that happen. It has to be easier that having multiple ways of doing it and then having to sort it all. TT should be an exclusive and mandatory IRS tax return filing system. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by favabeeny Excellent Tax Program Help was there when I needed it. Mike was great and helped me with the necessary things I needed to file again. April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by EstimatedTaxes Estimated Taxes: Weak I pay estimated taxes in 3 jurisdictions -- Federal, Virginia, and North Dakota. The help for estimated taxes within TurboTax is uneven across these 3 jurisdictions, and is weak overall , particularly in regard to the Annualized Income Installment Method (Pub 505, 2014, p. 29). I have used the basic version of TurboTax, but as far as I know ( and I've asked), there's no "upscale" TurboTax version that's any better in this area. So I'm pretty much left to to my own devices, working my estimated taxes using Excel without much value added from TurboTax. If there were a better version of TurboTax available to help with this area, I'd sure buy it, But of course the market for this particular quirk is probably a little limited. Anyway, please see what you can do for me. And I volunteer to be a beta tester, if you accept customers for that role. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by SRSIII Amazing I look forward to doing my taxes every year because turbo tax makes it easy and fun. April 16, 2014
