Rated 5 out of 5 by BajaDick Where have You Been All My Life?!?
Every year I have dreaded doing my taxes - and that's even with using our CPA! Granted, my lifestyle is much simpler now so filing my taxes is easier, but, still, the black cloud was there. I put it off and put it off, and then finally took the advice of friends and tried Turbo Tax. I love the way it 'talks' to me in such a calming way - with no condescension. Doing the taxes was almost fun! I felt confident and not for one second stressed. Fantastic! i will recommend Turbo Tax to everyone I know!

Rated 2 out of 5 by z0mb13fied Only good thing is it's free
My state refund was rejected even though I filled it out correctly, and everything else they transferred over from my federal. Then when I went back to fix it the only stuff they told me had to be fixed I know was not wrong in the first place. And then I had to try to find the places to fill the info back in because it doesn't take you straight to it when you click the 'fix it' button or whatever. The only good thing is that it was free and initially filling out my taxes was very easy to understand.

I have used TurboTax my last 2 tines I filed.
The website is VERY easy to understand an user friendly. Turbo tax will also help you when you filing by highlighting and pointing out a.y questionable areas on your return. Also, they SAVE your information as you go so if you have to stop and come back later you can pick up right where you left off. Great! Honestly,I am sitting in a very well known Tax Prep office now... but due to the line I just did my own on TURBI TAX while sitting in the waiting area!!

This is the first year I decided to step up and file taxes. Although I am still in school and my parents claim me as a dependent themselves, I figured it wouldn't hurt to educate myself in tax filing. My friend recommended TurboTax because of how detailed the process is and I couldn't agree more! TurboTax really held my hand through what seemed like a daunting process - explained every feature and boxes on W2 forms that I always just ignored. This was EXTREMELY helpful and I'd recommend this to anyone!

Doing my taxes was a daunting task until I started using TurboTax last year. It's easy to navigate interface, simple instructions, and helpful explanations of anything that I was confused on made doing my taxes and quick and easy process. Entering in the information for my W-2's is a breeze, and it gives specific information about the deductions I can get for paying for my tuition and textbooks. Now I can spend my time looking forward to my refund rather than dreading doing my taxes in the first place.

I am a student and first time filer and I thought that was going to take me hours. I wasn't sure what to expect so I though that the worst was coming for sure. But this was like using an app on my phone. Everything was easy to fill out, the guides worked very simplistically. I had a lot of the files that I needed on hand so that might be why it felt so easy. But from start to finish this was a fantastic and simple way to do my taxes. I would recommend that anyone that is afraid to do this alone, try it!

Turbo tax has saved me tremendous time through the organization of their site. In addition, I have filed my taxes three times with them and have gotten excellent results and feedback on all instances.
Even with the instance of having a foreign job, Turbo Tax still delivers! I am not versed in income taxes nor do I have any background in finances. The detailed explanations provided by this site from being a college student and transitioning into the work world, was easy with the assistance of Turbo Tax.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GuyFriendBuddy This program works great. Its extremely user friendly. However navigation is often difficult. I don't have my own computer but i do have a cell. I think its ridiculous that you cannot file taxes on your phone or access many of the sites features Via phone. they ought to fix that for next year. I paid federal then decided against state. I changed my mind, but navigating to a menu that allowed you to pay state (after already submitting federal) was like finding hay in a needle stack. Painful and annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bern33 Continues to Get Better Every Year
After doing my taxes by hand or spending time with a tax consultant for so many years, it's awesome having TurboTax around today. Although they ask the same questions multiple times and try to add a level of personality to their process, I understand they are just attempting to create an environment where stress is eased and mistakes are minimized. What impresses me most is the fact that TurboTax gets easier each and every year without any significant price increases. See you next year around this time!

I was really impressed with the simplicity of filing, especially appreciated the explanations by each question or category. Made filing for me easier than expected. I felt much more comfortable after reading the first explanation and used these each time they were available. I feel I understood the process so much better.
After reading the agreement for depositing my refund, I was distressed that I could not discover the fees that the bank will charge (the one used as a depository for Turbotax refunds).

Rated 4 out of 5 by trouble8maker mostly easy
most of the prompts were straight forward and simple and easy. it was very helpful that it saves for you as you go. but you have to find where you can elect to donate to the presidential election fund (it is not a simple check marked box in the regular taxes prompt, it is in a separate portion). the only issue I had was the way they worded the prompt for when I was including business purchases and car mileage etc. it was a bit of a head ache and totally confusing even though it was written in easy terms.

Very frustrated, I have a Deluxe 2013 version but it didn't give me option to upgrade. so after son went through whole process including paid extra 48.00 to file a DC return which wasn't able to be electronically filed he abandoned it and went to another site redid the entire process with Turbo tax paid an additional 29.00 to get the tax filed and it didn't even include the required DC tax return Form only instructions how to file so now Im out 77.00 and still no State DC form to file. Absolutely absurd.

It is obvious that a lot of work has been put into this software and that the focus really was great customer service. It's really easy to use. Can't go more intuitive than what I experienced here. The design is pleasant and makes the topic of taxes even seem kind of exciting. Just great - Thanks!
1 Con: When realizing that I probably would like to file the state tax on paper to avoid the fee, I didn't see a quick way to get back to the screen where to choose option to file only the federal tax. return.

This was my first year filing my taxes,so I was super nervous. All the stories I heard about the IRS terrified me. But when I got onto Turbo Tax the site did a good job relieving my anxiety and getting me through the process quickly and efficiently. Which was a must, considering I filed them April 14th!! If I knew it was going to be this easy I would of done it months ago. Plus I know what I would like to personally do better for next years taxes. Thanks Turbo Tax! Can't wait to use your site next year (:

Rated 4 out of 5 by AER74 Satisfactory handling of my taxes
The whole process was satisfactory and simple. It got my accurate tax refund and made my tax return super easy. The problem was that I had a problem connecting to my account at it took longer for my computer to log in to my account than doing the actual process of my tax returns. I don't know whether if it's my internet connection or if it's the turbo tax website. Still I'm finally done with it and I'm glad that turbo tax made it very easy for me and let me know right away when my tax refunds was rejected.

This is my second year using TurboTax. They helped me with two issues that I faced. The first happened when completing and filing a return for my dependent enrolled in college. I prepared his return incorrectly and it was not accepted, I called and received the help I needed with his return. The second issue was I filed my own return and realized I forgot some information. I completed an amended return to submit. TurboTax walked me through the changes I needed to making it a quick and easy process. Thanks.

Turbo Tax is so simple and quick! I love that I can save and come back to it when I don't have enough time to file in one sitting and everything is laid out in front of you. My only Cons with this would be related to finding the biggest refund possible. For individuals who do not know enough about taxes or filing, it can be limiting that way, whereas going to a tax accountant, they can find loopholes in order to get you the biggest refund. If I did that, I probably wouldn't have paid $3 this year on taxes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chubadub How did turbo tax plus get on there?
I loved using this! It was totally worth my time and I will be recommending this to everyone next year! The only thing that got me was when I got to the end and noticed a $60 fee being taken out on my refund when I thought it was supposed to only be $30 for the state. After closer inspection I noticed that an extra $30 charge was added when I chose to have my state processing fee deducted from my refund instead of paying for the state fee upfront... Watch out for that! But otherwise, very well put together.

If you have picked Turbo Tax for the free filing and expect it to include the State return don't bother. After completing the federal return, it continues to lead right into the state and only after you have completed both does Turbo Tax inform that there is a charge of $29 dollars or your state return will be deleted. it repeats this several times before it allows you to file the 'Federal Return' and wastes your time having done the State Return without knowing the charge up front.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 9blah6 Could not efile due to filing status but no option
Unclear instructions: At end of filing, was prompted with the following: "Cannot efile because 'You have claimed your spouse's exemption on a return with a married filing separate status.' " The autofill form must have entered that I was CLAIMING my husband, but I did not claim him. The form must have automatically given the exemption for him. FURTHER, tried to efile State but required a credit card. I used my mother's credit card, THEN was prompted that I could NOT efile State, AFTER CHARGES WENT THROUGH!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jkep Took this lying down!
This was super easy and so wonderful! There were a few more come-ons this year, but for free, it's easy enough to tap them away. I'm very unhappy about the record of my filing time as eastern/standard, when I am in the central time zone, and by my clock, I am in under the wire before midnight on the deadline. Really need that to be changed and fixed. I do not want to be penalized. So there should've been an alert that advised extending if it was unable to record MY time, not wherever the company website is!

Second time filing taxes on my own. The first time I file was with H&R Block, There system was complicated, hard to understand and time consuming. I was hesitant to try out TurboTax. To my surprise it was nothing like the first experience. I was able to navigate the system easily. If i did not understand a question I would click on the help button. It would explain in detail what it was asking for. I felt confident. It let me go back and review and edit information. I would recommend this software to anyone.

I decided to use TurboTax after my sister suggested it to me. I have never done my taxes before, and I hated the idea of waiting in a crowded line to get someone else to do it for free. The site was incredible. I loved the design and how user friendly it was. It is clear they have a very talented front end and back end web design team. I was incredibly impressed and am very happy with my returns! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is uneasy about filing their taxes. TurboTax makes it fun and easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by raikenclw List Standard Deduction First
I liked the provision of all the various options. But some of them seemed a bit repetitive. After one run through the possible deductions, I didn't really see the need to look at them all again. But my main suggestion is that the dollar amount of the Federal Standard Deduction should really be mentioned at the beginning of the deduction calculation process. My itemized deductions came to only about half the Standard Deduction. If I knew that to begin with, I would have simply skipped all the itemized options.

This is a really nice way to file taxes. I have never understood filling out the confusing documentation, but turbo tax stream lines it by making it easy to understand direct questions and then auto fills everything out for you. You never even see confusing documentation.
This is the first time doing my own taxes, and i thought i was going to dread the experience, but in one simple hour, a great weight has been lifted. The Site has a very smooth transition and is very direct on the information that it needs.

I was apprehensive about doing my taxes online, especially since I had no clue where to start or what I was doing. Turbo Tax walked me through every single step, with the nice addition of letting me know WHY certain questions were being asked. I liked how thorough the process was, as well as the amount of options that were available to help me find as many deductions as possible. I am much more confident in my ability to file on my own next year, and will not use another tax service - Turbo Tax has me hooked.

Rated 2 out of 5 by asdfjlkj I was under the impression that TurboTax was completely free to use. It cost me $29.99 to file for state taxes. I was unable to review my state section to make it easier to e-file myself to save the money. In addition, I decided to just have the $29.99 taken out of my federal return because I was running short on time and needed to file soon. It then charged me ANOTHER $29.99. Luckily I was able to remove that and pay with a credit card, but overall, I am very disappointed and will be filing myself next year.

TurboTax asked me really direct questions and made everything super easy. I didn't even know I qualified for one of the refund credits they helped me to find. I'm really grateful that I was able to get that, as I need all I can get as a working student. I look forward to having this to help me along when I get a more complicated job that has more stuff to file for. I don't really understand all this tax stuff, but they made it so easy that I really just had to understand one part at a time. Truly a life saver.
