Rated 5 out of 5 by Leejack Effortless!
We have a rather complex tax situation with stock sales, investment properties and a small home based business. We had been going to a tax prep service that charged us hundreds of dollars due to our "complexity". We had used TurboTax years ago when our taxes were a breeze to complete but thought our current situation would be to daunting for a online DIY approach.
Well we were pleasantly surprised at just how easy and fast it was with TurboTax Online. It took less than 2 hours start to finish and costs about a tenth of what the local tax preparer was charging us. Will be using TurboTax again next year!

Despite my continued allegiance to turbo take, your cost has most likely done me in. I will look at other software for cost comparison.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kangaroo35 Only one major problem
This was our 3rd time (?) using TT and it was the same easy-to-use program as before, with one troubling exception. In the state portion, the program populated the amt. we paid for our 2013 state taxes incorrectly. Although I was eventually able to override it and put in the correct amount (and I saw from the Q&A that many people couldn't) this calls into question the accuracy of their whole system -how could I be sure any of TT's nos. were correct? I had to manually review all of the calculations, which mostly defeats the point of using tax prep software, doesn't it? Not sure if we will use again next year...

Rated 3 out of 5 by SW50dWl0 More frustrating this year
Have used the online version for many years. This time around, it was a more frustrating experience.
Biggest problem: Program didn't handle educational expenses correctly. We had expenses that were reported on a 1098-T and paid for by a Coverdell ESA withdrawal, reported on a 1099-Q. The program wanted me to claim an American Opportunity Credit for those expenses - that would've been double-counting, and isn't allowed. Ended up deleting the amounts in the 1098-T to get the correct answer.
Also new and frustrating: Paying $20 to upgrade versions so I could report $3 in capital gains (a cash-in-lieu transaction).

I tried another service last year (to save me time), but it ended up costing me more in fees than it would with Turbo Tax. I wish I would have saved the effort. Turbo Tax is simple to use, intuitive and efficient. Plus, it keeps me up to date with evil IRS changes.

Can't beat the convenience ... and the thoroughness of the process. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate.
There is a bit of a leap of faith to trust a faceless piece of software, but I have been using TT for nearly 10 years and have never had a problem.

Liked it better when it was free obviously. The 100+ dollars is worth it just not something I expected. All because I got paid a 1099..

To expand on Cons: I ran into problems I couldn't quickly fix on my state return, and I had to delete it entirely to send in my federal return. It would be nice to "pause" one or the other and come back to it later, while still submitting the other finished return.

by Shannoniginz Best tax prep of all!!
I've been using Turbo Tax for years and I love it but I thought maybe it could take some stress off if I used a tax service, just once, and I got a notice this year that I'm being audited for THAT ONE YEAR I DIDN'T USE TURBO TAX!!
I'll stick with them from now on!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by summertime341 Best I've Tried
I like using TurboTax and have used it for years. The only change I could suggest is an option to choose if your state doesn't have state income, so that references to state income filing could be avoided (don't scare me to death thinking I have to pay more taxes!)

I have used Turbo Tax for the last 12-13 years. It is the best software I have used. It continues to get better each year and I wouldn't use any other software to do my taxes. Thank you so much for being user friendly and having explanations throughout the process.
