Rated 5 out of 5 by TurboTax is Amazing!! This year was my first time filing for my taxes. As a post-grad college student, I was very unsure on how to go about filing my taxes for the first time but TurboTax made my filing easy and efficent for me. The step-by-step features made it incredibly stress free for me as well. I would highly recommend turbotax to anyone who is filing taxes for the first time or who just needs the extra help. Thank you TurboTax!!! April 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievably Awesome!! I HATE doing my taxes every year. I had been using a different company for several years and accidently signed onto this one when helping my boyfriend get started on his taxes. Best mistake I have ever made!! After he finished his he was able to invite me to use Turbotax also so I did. It was great! I already have recommended it to several people. Thanks for making it so easy and understandable. See you next year!! March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Was it really that easy?! I loved how easy it was to file my tax return. As a second year user of TurboTax I really appreciate how quick it is, and that it can all be done online! The one thing I don't like is I thought I had filed my return 3 weeks ago, and when I hadn't gotten my return back today I went to check... Turns out I hadn't clicked all the way through the filing page. Oops. Got to remember that for next year! Thank you TurboTax! February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easiest refund ever! This is the first time I've filed my taxes on my own. In past years I have used my parents accountant to assist me. As an emerging adult into the world I was afraid that I was going to do my taxes wrong. With turbotax I had no issues, and I got a great refund! I am very happy with how easy the process went, and I would absolutely recommend this to all of my friends and family. Thank you TurboTax..really...thank you. March 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I did this all by myself! I really liked turbo tax. I did not like that I had to pay extra to use my stored info.(I chose to put it all in again) But just as well I did this all by myself this year and I feel really awesome!! My girlfriend usually did this for me. But since we are not talking I had to do it myself. I was dreading it, But it was GREAT! I really look forward to doing my taxes next year. AND all my friends taxes! Thanks so much March 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by You have reallly BEDAZZLED Me!!!! I can only say that I am sorry for not using turbotax sooner. I was so used to using that same old way I had used for years. I just did not think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! I just decided I wanted to try something different this year. I was totally knocked off my feet with the wonderful experience I had with turbotax. I will recommend turbotax above all others any day. I am sold. You have me for life. March 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Takes the frustration out of taxes This is my 4th time using Turbo Tax. I use the free version because my taxes are very uncomplicated. This year, I thought I'd try out forms directly from the IRS but when I did my taxes through Turbo Tax, I realized I had missed several options which would have cost me in the form of a smaller refund. I definitely recommend Turbo Tax and for those with more strenuous needs, the upgraded versions are likely top notch. April 6, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Why? CON-Really, is a 2-3% charge on credit cards necessary? You couldn't lump the 50 cent charge into the $30 I already paid? PRO-The explain functions were great. I would add a section (Have all the necessary documents?) somewhere in the beginning to remind people of possible documents, especially for times like this when health insurance reqs are added. I completely forgot about getting that. Overall a decent service. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple by Design The software is great. It leads you through and has pop up boxes with good, basic information and links to more. I loved the links to the Mint page and how easy is was to get the PINs. I plan to use TurboTax from now on. I'll be having life changes soon that will greatly impact my taxes, so glad I found it now. Glad I read a review of different software for taxes. I chose the best one and will purchase more products. April 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by PAINLESS INCOME TAX FILING I've been using TurboTax for several years and it just seems to get better and easier every year. I e-file the free Federal return now since my state return is so simple. But even so, TT can still be used to provide a guide to your state taxes. I was a bit disappointed in the poor registration of the numeric detail in the intitial form review, and the fact this form is NOT printable at this stage. Highly recommended! March 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick, Easy, MONEY This is my third year in a row filing taxes by myself, and Turbo Tax has made it easy each and every time. It tells me exactly what I need and where to find it, and makes doing taxes easy and actually sort of fun! It's exciting to see the refund number change as you enter more information, even more so when it changes in a positive direction. I keep telling my friends that for their taxes, this is the best way to go. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rockin Customer Experience This has been the best tax filing experience I've had in years. I was able to prepare and file my return in just 2 hours. Granted I have a fairly simple return but, it was more than an ez1040 filing. Navigation through each step was clear and simple to understand. Instructions added a personal touch that made me feel at ease and confident that my data was accurate. Thank you for giving me my afternoon back Turbo Tax! April 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by its a minefield gets old very quick when Turbo Tax tries to get you to buy a state return or upgrade for more than the return is worth, I would consider this in future but because of the loss of time , to get around numerous pitch jobs, I probably wont consider T.T if next year is the same, if I made 5000$ last year as a student every penny is important to me so spending 30$ on a state return is sort of ridiculous at my income level March 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by supereasyrefund Thank You. This was my first time filing online. I was in a place were I just couldn't make it to a tax place. (H & R) I am a super busy, tired mother of three. All three kids are young and making any appointments just seem so hard right now in my life. I was always scared of doing my own taxes, thinking i would just completely mess it up some how. This year was the easiest of any year I have filed. Thank You, Melissa February 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Refund through the roof I have always used Turbo Tax because of the walk through process and the helpful hints. I have always gotten the most $$ possible for my refund. I have never tried another program so I hope that I am making the BEST choice by using TurboTax, but I pretty sure I am. I just know that other companies are starting to give better deals to online tax users, I just wish that Turbo Tax would be FREE for simple tax form filers March 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Thought I only had to do things 1 time?!? I thought you guys made it very easy for me to actually do my own taxes I'm not a number lady and you made it happen!! But 2 days after I filed I get an email saying your state refund has been rejected and this happens from time to time well with my accountant this never happened!! I mean I thought that was what all you analysis were for.. waste of time having to do it twice... overall you get a 6 out of 10 thanks mel March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome and super easy! Since my tax return was super easy I was really glad I was able to file my Federal tax return for free online. Since I go to school and work part-time, and my parents were able to claim me as a dependent I didn't have to input too much information. However. I was a little bummed that we would have to pay for California. Well $29.99 isn't that bad but it does take away from my tax return and I don't get much as it is. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always use TurboTax I always use TurboTax to file my returns. I tried the iPad version but struggled to see my state return so I shifted to the web version. Nice and easy to complete my return. Luckily, everything from the application was available on the web version. My tax return has really gotten very simple so it is quick and easy and does not cost a lot for federal and state returns which includes filing. Could not be more satisfied. April 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easiest return I've filed I've filed my own taxes for years, and was proud that I could do it without having to go to H&R Block or the like. I was hesitant to try Turbo Tax at first, but figured I'd give it a shot since it's been harder to get the forms and my schedule is really crammed these days. I know lots of people who use it annually. I was very please with how easy and fast it was to file. They more than exceeded my expectations. Thanks! February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by why not? I didn't want to do my taxes. Because taxes sound like the epitome of growing up. But turbo tax let me file my taxes, direct deposit my return, and be on my way in around 40 minutes not to mention without charging me a penny. I appreciate a company that helped me take this step into adulthood without making me feel weighed down by stress or taking the hours of my time I expected it to. Thanks turbo tax. You da real mvp February 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by SSN agency at root of most problems The RITA section was a little confusing but overall this would have been a good experience if the SSN agency hadn't misfiled my birthday. Tax turbo was as helpful as they can be in such a situation and gave me what tools they could to fix the situation, although frankly they didn't have the authority to fix much. The reminder on rejected Tax returns was helpful, I can only hope that this time the error is really fixed. April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Helpful Honestly not sure if I have any Cons. Not only was TurboTax super easy and fast -- thanks to it's ability to autofill -- but it is thorough and easy to use. There was help every step of the way, with detailed instructions for each form and indications of whether options were common or uncommon. Free federal, somehow got my state free as well - but I was willing to pay TT after not finding anywhere else to do it free :/ March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Time Independent Filer I was very apprehensive at first but my friend told me he did his and it was easy. I tried it, and it was, super easy! I felt very accomplished after doing my own taxes! Very smooth. Saves your choices so you do not have to start over every time. it was not hard. Once you type in your employer's ID it automatically pulls up your information for youOverall very easy and from now on I am filing my own taxes with TurboTax! February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast and Easy As a 20 year old, I hate filing, I hate paperwork, and I hate all things with numbers. Turbo Tax offers a painless, simple, organized, and not to mention FREE way to complete a federal tax return. I also payed a low amout of $27.99 to e-file my state paperwork. The layout and design of the website is nicely put together, it almost made filling everything out enjoyable. I would reccommend this method to anyone. Well done March 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Turbo Terrific! Simple, easy to follow. My grandson calls me elderly...but I didn't feel like it when I completed my Taxes in less than 20 minutes!!! Next to learning to take public transportation Turbo Tax is my new best friend!!! I NEVER thought I'd be done in 20 minutes!!! Up graded to have them file my state taxes and I'm done with them too!!! Happy to pay such a small fee for the stress reduction.Thanks for a brilliant web site!!! March 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! I used this site for my taxes last year and I just finished using it again this year. TurboTax is fantastic. For a 22 year old, I'm not very good at doing things online at all. I dreaded doing my taxes and had no idea where to even start. TurboTax took me through each step so effortlessly and explained things perfectly. They set it up so that you are not overwhelmed and it is very manageable to use. Thank you TurboTax!! February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never More Excited To File My Taxes Just getting out in the real world and was never taught about how to do my taxes! Im 19 and always thought it was a thing of long papers and difficult questions. Turbo tax changed my outlook on everything to the simplicity of using the site to being able to file my own taxes for the very first time. Will definitely be using again in the future. Thanks to everyone that makes this possible for younger Americans like me! :) February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by That was easy Everything was broken down Barney style. Perfect for newbies, such as myself. Detailed descriptions of what everything was and how and where to find it made filing taxes a breeze. Some of the explanations and descriptions weren't all that clear on what they meant, but that could be just me being dumb. I cannot stress enough how easy it was. I greatly appreciate it and actually look forward to doing taxes again next year. March 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extra Extra Charges!! I knew I'd have to pay Turbo Tax for E-Filing, but was surprised to have to pay an outside entity a fee to pay what I owed on my Federal Taxes! In hind sight, I should have mailed a check to pay the federal taxes. Only reason I used Turbo was to electronically file! This is the reason I gave an overall rating on ONE star!! As many times as I've electronically filed, I've NEVER had to pay a fee to pay owed Tax!!!!!!!!!!!! March 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Flawed When preparing returns for Utah and Idaho, the Idaho portion asked questions of me about the Utah return that it should have been able to obtain itself from the Utah return, and worse, it gave me no way to access the needed info on the Utah return so I could fill it in manually. Lame. Also, when identifying a problem to be fixed, it gives no meaningful info to help figure out what is wrong and how to fix it. Again, Lame. April 15, 2015
