Rated 5 out of 5 by Albert47919 Turbo Tax - Facilitator of Tax Return Filing
Turbo Tax made filing my taxes TURBO fast! I filed a simple tax return which only required 2 W-2 forms which Turbo Tax imported. This meant I did not have to input the data from my tax forms which made the process seamless and effortless. I cannot say anything for any other more complex returns, but, I would recommend this service to everyone who is filing a simple return which requires nothing more than your W-2 form(s). Turbo Tax gets two thumbs up from me and a five-star rating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GreatLakesSrfr Easier and better this year but with some bugs
TurboTax is really getting a lot more user-friendly each year and I liked the flow and ease of the questions and instructions. I would have given an overall 5 star rating except for the one little mistake in the automatic transfer of my W-2 info. The checked box showed a tick mark for "Stat Employee" instead of "Ret plan" for Line 13 which may have something to do with getting errors after doing the "checking return for accuracy." It took me a while to figure it out and edit my W-2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPNagel Great support
Overall, I have been extremely pleased with TurboTax. My state refund was rejected due to improper information on the e-signature (spouse). Once I got to the proper page, it was simple to correct with the instructions given by this site. My only complaint, which is minor in comparison, is I had to scroll through numerous pages to access the one I required. Very minor, as far as I was concerned for the ease and accuracy of filing. I believe that I received the maximum return possible.

I've used TurboTax for the past four years, and my feeling is that it gets exponentially easier and faster each year. I only spent about two hours doing my taxes and that was with the TV on at the same time. TufboTax brings all of the important bits to the user's attention and leaves the unnecessary stuff in the background. The only con I can think of is that the process is so quick that a given user may start skimming and miss a more uncommon opportunity for a deduction or a credit.

Turbotax is amazing. I filed my taxes in under 2 hours, and it's much cheaper than hiring a CPA to do it for you. All you need is your paperwork, and Turbotax will prompt you for them when you need them. Easy.
I don't like all of the motivational, friendly asides as if I'm about to snap and Turbotax is trying to calm me down and hold my hand. I'm a big boy, and I can carry my juice without spilling it, even if the family dog nudges me.
Other than that, an amazing clerical experience.

Did my joint return in 45 minutes. The whole thing was fast, simple, and non threatening. Most people hate the idea of doing a tax return and I sympathize with them. You're always afraid you're going to mess it up. With Turbo Tax the whole experience is so fast and easy, you're all done before you know it. Don't call it "Turbo" for nothing. Then you're sitting back thinking "That's it? Wow. Why was I paying all that money before. Got my return done and saved $300." See you next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by catgirlllll Good, but beware of hidden fees.
I have been using TurboTax for years so I know where to click "skip" and which offers to decline to avoid paying more filing fees. But this time, I was just one click away from paying an additional $30 to allow turbo tax to deduct ANOTHER $30 from my refund. Luckily I read the fine print and realized I could instead pay the $30 state filing fee by using my credit card to avoid the additional $30 turbo tax fee they charge to deduct it from your return. Anyway, that's my only complaint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jh8839 Pretty Good
The only thing I can think of that would help is to have a button or link at the end that says "Return lower than expected? Click here for more info". It would be helpful if that link showed a comparison of my current tax forms/return to my tax amounts/return from last year to help me see why my return this year was less than last year. For example, I earned less money in 2014 than 2013, but my return this year was way, way less than the proportionately less amount I earned this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diana2162 Easiest return experience ever!!
After my boyfriend insisted that I try filing with TurboTax this year, I decided to give it a shot. It was so much easier to just answer questions in plain English, versus trying to maneuver pages of difficult tax forms. It was like having a friendly and quirky accountant in front of you, walking you through the steps at your own pace.
I found the free Federal return to be such a breeze, that paying $29.99 for the state return was a no-brainer. 10 out of 10, would recommend to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by odie335 I think it rocked?
I loved everything. But I did not love that it kept trying to charge me for things when I was initially trying to file. In other words, I thought I could file for free, and despite denying all the options to add upgrades, it still kept trying to get me to pay turbo tax, but I was pretty positive everything should be free. I eventually figured it out, but it was kind of difficult. I understand that you guys need to make money, but still. Otherwise, great product, great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by devildog442 HELPED A LOT
So I waited a little longer than I usually do to file my taxes, but I'm glad I did. Instead of using most of the programs I would normally use, I used Turbo Tax this time. I used the Military Free edition, but it worked just as well minus the few perks they offer for money. I can't complain at all, if it all goes well i got a decent sized tax return. I never would've gotten that with any other service. So I do take pride in saying I love this program, and I will recoommend it to anyone!

Me and my sister have been using turbo tax for many years. Up untill now (in 2015) I havent had any problems. This year what a major hassel . I signed in on your site numerous times, tried 4 different code numbers, I even called your 800 number. Finally! I got into your site to do my taxes. You seem to still have all my information. But still Ihad problems. It shouldn't take 4 hours to do your taxes! From now on , make your web-site easier to access especially for long time users. -John

I've never filled my taxes before, and was a bit intimidated by the process. I am young adult just learning to manage my finances, and was worried this was going to be a complicated and difficult addition to my new "adult" responsibilities.
I was truly shocked by how straight forward the process was with turbo tax, and impressed by how clearly everything was outlined.
Knowing this kind of service exists is a huge relief to me, and gives me confidence for doing this again in years ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJ92 Easy and Thorough
TurboTax is extremely easy to use and always give detailed explanations on different terms and questions. I was going to stop using the site when the IRS gave me over a thousand dollars less 2 years ago (because I needed a form that Turbo Tax did not instruct me to include).
However, my trust has been regained. It seems as though I am getting my full return.
On the down side, I disliked how I had to pay upfront to print my forms. I was hoping to have it deducted from my federal return.

I was extremely disappointed to learn that there is now a fee to upload my current information that was already entered and saved from using Turbo Tax in the past. I would have switched to using a different method to file, but I was limited in time and decided to continue simply because I'm familiar with Turbo Tax, having used it for many years. I will likely switch next year and allow myself more time since I refuse to pay any amount of money just to have my previous information pop up.

I've filed my taxes online before, and while other websites are generally pretty self explanatory, Turbo Tax took ease of use to ANOTHER LEVEL. I actually ENJOYED doing my taxes this year!!! The website was visually pleasing and very easy to navigate! I didn't run into ANY problems or confusion because they simplified the process SO MUCH! I will ALWAYS use/ recommend Turbo Tax for filing any type of taxes so long as the system stays this user friendly. A+++, Turbo Tax! You guys nailed it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JarrenChester Charged my credit card
I make less than $35,000 a year. By law I should be able to file my taxes for free. Last year I was able to use turbo tax without having to pay any fee. This year turbo tax asked for a credit card so I had to pay $29.99 or I wouldn't be able to file my taxes. I did not have to do this last year and there were no other options that would allow me to file it for free. I HAD TO USE A CREDIT CAD TO HAVE IT DONE. I will not be using turbo tax next year nor will I recommend this site to anyone.

As a fresh out of college, working individual I needed the reassurance that this program provided. I feel confident in my filing and learned a great deal about taxes along the way. Turbo tax made the process simple, and organized it in a way that a beginner like me can easily navigate. I LOVE that it provides the option to save and exit, so that you can do your taxes as the forms roll in. Overall, my experience was great! I highly recommend giving this program a try if you haven't already!

Absolutely fantastic program! I love turbo tax and have been a satisfied customer for years! Turbo Tax is the most user friendly, easy to navigate, tax program on the planet! Again it was an absolute breeze. Its strangely awesome how personal the program feels, it was like you had a tax expert right next to you walking you through step by step. LET TUBRO TAX BE SHOUTED FROM THE ROOF TOPS! Ahh I'm kidding, but seriously thank you so much for all of the hard work put into this great program!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyDaugther4DS so very easy to file using this free software
It was so easy to use free TurboTax intuit software compared to using the federal government forms. It was a free product for me because I only earned dividend income that the IRS should know. I made no state income so my income tax filing was completely free. What a deal. I also like the fact that if I am not finished and need to step away to take care of my dad in the nursing home then I could save my work and come back again later. Thank God for Turbotax that reduced my stress immensely!

As someone who isn't good at math or any sort of legal document, TurboTax really helps make approaching taxes easy. I dread doing my taxes every year, but TurboTax has made that process an easy and enjoyable one with all of the helpful and entertaining prompts that guide you through the entire tax return step-by-step. TurboTax also helps me get credits I wouldn't have known I was eligible for had I filled out the document on my own and sent it in. Extra credits found is always a good thing!

I have always used TurboTax for my own returns. It's always very simple, and easy. Unfortunately, my new husband did not have a normal situation, only because we filed 2 years of returns in a short amount of time. I guess the previous year wasn't accepted yet, so the "AGI was incorrect." Once it was rejected, it stayed rejected. Even when I went to fix it, even though the numbers were correct, it was rejected, rejected, rejected. I'm sending it through the mail, hoping for a better outcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Schroeder86 A good go-to source for simple returns
I've used TurboTax for the 3rd year in a row now and I've found the process of filing for returns to be extremely simple with this system. For those that aren't savvy on returns, there's a nice guided walk-through of most everything you could possibly include in a tax return session.
For those that are using it for business, expect to pay $30 or more for the necessary tax return process (though it's probably worth it if you're trying to be thorough and keep documentation from year to year).

TurboTax provides me with confidence in filing my taxes. The software is user friendly. The downside of TurboTax is the advertisement for other products to purchase. If questions to purchase other products was removed from the process when inputting the tax information, the process would be must faster. Additionally, the cost to file the state tax is not competitive with other tax software. For example FreeTaxUSA does not charge for state filing. I may consider using that software next year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sammccord Made my state refund very difficult
My form k-40 for my state refund kept on dragging me back and forth putting in and deleting my information on my form, if i had no information on it they told me to put it in. When the information was put in, it then told me to delete the information if i wanted to efile. This happened over and over and wouldnt let me proceed with e-filing so i had to end up mailing it. If i couldnt have mailed it this year i may have billed turbotax for the gaping hole i wouldve punched in my computer screen

Can I just say how much I love TurboTax?? I have been using them since I was 16 and could file for taxes and they have never let me down. I love when I start to see my refund rise the more I complete my taxes. Their website is sleek and very user-friendly and they double and triple check that you have everything down. Oh, and I got all my taxes done, both state and federal, in just about an hour. 10/10 - would recommend to anyone, especially those a little uneasy about doing taxes every year.

For my first time use, it's very user friendly! I am quite pleased with it and has made taxes not so scary. It's all about good record keeping and plugging and chugging. I know I should've done this sooner and not the day before it's due, but that's what happened. And hey I made it! Thank you TurboTax! I love how it breaks down everything for you and explains every portion that you're on and asks if there are any possible itemized deductions that you could have overlooked (there are so many!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by JordieBeth Easy as 1 2 3
Turbo Tax should offer the least return possible, it always ask for an upgrade, but not to down grade, when all information is entered and the chosen service is entirely to much. I filed with turbo tax last year, had to file a 1040 with schedule c. This year circumstances changed and I only needed to file a 1040ez. I had to create a new account to do so. This is an inconvenience and not supportive, from turbo tax, as it appears, you are only after my money, not out to support me as a customer.

I think its best to use turbo tax if you are a motivated individual and know how to follow basic instructions. You can file your return faster and more efficient than some tax preparing services. I like the layout of the pages and the animation on each section. The pages were not cluttered and it was easy on the eyes. Every page had a purpose that was visible without over saturation. I had a good experience filing my taxes. Now lets just see how long the process takes for me to get the refund.
