Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairly Easy I know know more that the average person about taxes as I've worked as a tax preparer but it's been many years so I'd forgotten some things. Tubrotax is written in simple language and that's so helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped me when I needed it most! TurboTax helped me to properly report our younger son's daycare expenses and our older daughter's income. I loved being able to automatically import our investments by just entering the account number and document ID. It was so easy to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like riding a bike I filed with TurboTax a very long time ago (AOL - dial up internet - type long time ago) and it was fairly easy back then. Turn that clock forward a marriage, a few kids, rental property in a different state, college, and several investments. The last 10 - 15 years I've been using a company to file my taxes because it was just too complicated to figure out myself. This year I decided to give Turbo Tax a try again. I was quite surprised at how automated the process is and how easy it was to get my taxes filed. If anything the program is too thorough. There were questions asked that I hadn't even begun to think of which will come in handy when it's time to file next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great program and Great Expert Help! I've been using turbotax for five years consecutively and I love the convenience, the ease and the relatively low cost compared to a tax place or a personal accountant. This year I had a question on one part so I paid the extra fee to have an expert call me back. The person was very knowledgeable and walked me through everything! It was work the peace of mind and still cheaper and easier than having a professional tax service file for me. I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Income Tax Complete!!! Even though it was time consuming, it was well worth the time to get it right! If I had a question, turbotax fielded it and provided detailed explanation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I CAN do this! Filing taxes is unnecessarily complicated and those who have money to pay for accountants have an unfair tax advantage. TurboTax is straightforward software to deal with our messy tax filing system and to successfully file taxes on your own. I have used a few other software programs and have come back to TurboTax because it is the BEST to get the job done RIGHT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty complicated could use some more help with whether special situations apply; and some explanation as to the calculation logic for some forms e.g., Form 6251, 8960 and W/S e.g., Sched D Tax W/S

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have no idea how I'd file my taxes without turbota The year I lived in two countries, two states and worked in a third state. I also ran two partnerships. I think it'd be virtually impossible for me to file my taxes using the IRS forms - I'd be at it for weeks. Turbotax makes the process doable by translating the dense IRS instructions into intelligible, answerable, largely intuitive questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sergio Helped me "Get it done"! I very much appreciated this assist. I have used turbo tax for many years with any need of assistance. But this year was quite different as I experienced some drastic life changes. Thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Devastation & Heartbreak!!! I eFiled my federal return since I'm offshore sent 6/15/2018. TurbTax said it was eFiled. I never heard anything so I went back into my return and it said it was Printed and Ready to MAIL!~! Why when is it when it said on the screen it was eFiled then when I checked it said this is it the customers fault as the rep that I talked to said. His exact quote was "I can assure you it was you". I have used TurboTax for years and this is how a loyal customer is treated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better then H&R I went to H&R to check to see if they could do better. Sadly, the folks working there are not experts. I walked out after a few min there. I like that TurboTax also offers tax coverage just encase you get turbotax IRS audit protection. The only difficulty I had was deleting my state tax. I've been overseas for 10 years, so I didn't need that. I had to go into the form view and delete it there for it to give me the option to delete it in the application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I will use it again and have enjoyed using it. Just wish there was a little help to answer some questions that just have to much legal talk for me to know what I'm doing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Online edition is terrible It's so tiring to have to go back through the interview questions back-and-forth to make changes. I wish there was some sort of an expert mode that would allow me to just update or change my responses in one screen. For example, it's tiring to click into depreciation and then have it asked you do you want to make changes to depreciation? Of course I do why would I click it if I didn't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I've used TurboTax the past few years. I usually do it on my phone, using SnapTax, but this year I did it on my computer. I like that as long as I have my documents from each of the places I've dealt with over the past year, then I can confidently click through the process and know that I have done everything I need to do. If I forget or lose a form, that's on me, so no problems with TurboTax there. If I have an extra document that they didn't ask for, I just search it on the sidebar and they can take me straight to that form. Intuit also has the possibility of pulling records straight from some employers and services, making it even easier to complete my taxes, because they can fill my forms automatically. At the end of the process when I was looking at my return, I can click through a series of regular-language questions that help me understand exactly how everything was calculated. I end the experience feeling very confident about my filing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Turbo tax just keeps getting better. Easy to follow question-answer format with references to more information if needed. Top line Turbo tax paid - Fed e-tax blocked. Could not discern error. Used the help number and a knowledgeable person stayed on the phone with me until we had all correct. Fantastic experience...again for someone who has a "mental" block about tax form filing. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comleted & filed my return It took me longer as I had go overseas just a few days after starting. Not all tax info was available when I left. When I restarted on return, I wasn't sure what info had been imported and what wasn't. TurboTax kept a tab on the info and I was able to complete and file on time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from getting worse even though I am wiling to pay more, I cannot get immediate help or access to support for questions. the guy does not help in handling special situations. I am a US citizen staying abroad and turbotax does not even allow me to pay its own bill.. cover all situations ...refund me the amount that you charged for doing payment through refunds. Your web site does not allow me to use my credit card from outside US . piece of crap

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for simple items Have been using TT for years. My returns were simple: Income and investments. This year I bought a home and had some investment property that resulted in foreign taxes. Using TT was very difficult. The instructions were not easy to follow and online explanations did not help. The software got stuck at some point while checking my returns. I had to put dummy values in a form even though they made no difference just to be able to file. I will most likely not be using TT again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Bad Expat Tools I've been a loyal turbotax user my entire adult life, but this year was my first filing taxes from abroad as an expat. Expat taxes are confusing enough, but unfortunately turbotax made them even harder. The instructions on several pages were less complete than what is in the IRS publications, and the content was generally over simplified into cutesy language that made what to do difficult to determine. There are also several instances of fields that simply can't be properly filled (zip codes, country codes) or forms that aren't available (statement for an automatic 2 month extension.) Lastly, I found at least 1 minor bug in the health coverage, where turbotax filled the form improperly unless you exercise careful trial and error with the input fields. Sadly, there don't seem to be many better options for expat taxes, but turbotax definitely has room for improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Needed for First Timers Next year, it will be smooth sailing, but this year, the learning curve was steeper than it should have been. I just e-filed for two S-Corps and each had a signature sheet. I get to e-filing my 1040 and there was no mention. After searching the "community," I finally figured out that entering my last years' AGI "counted" as my signature. A newby could not possibly know that. Multiply that by a couple of dozen. Bottom line: Provide more "here's why" info for first timers and don't assume they are veterans at it the first time. And, for anyone, there needs to be a way to see summaries of what has been entered at a given point. As it is, I had to go back and start at the beginning of the whole section and click back through it to see what I'd entered. When I did, several yes/no boxes I'd checked would be no longer checked, so I had to check them again. When I entered my asset depreciation items, it came up with a box for state and said it could not be left blank. When I got to the review, it said I had things that needed corrected. Every one of the items for state that I had put a number in now said it should be blank! And there was something also for each one of them that said needed to be checked but didn't tell me when I was entering the data. Maybe have someone at TT in QA/QC start with a 1020S and then move on to a 1040 and see what happens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Non Resident- Foreign taxpayer TurboTax could review their instructions related to taxpayers living overseas for they are not as good as other instructions. An opportunity! Not may taxpayers located overseas, realize they have to file US taxes. It would good to advertise at US Consulates in other countries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally done For the most part, Turbotax is a great service. It walks you through tax forms that can be less than user friendly without it. I've used Turbotax for a number of years because it's a reasonably priced and mostly user friendly solution. This is the first year that I really struggled with it. I have some unusual situations (living abroad, an excess contribution to IRA) that were quite difficult to understand or resolve using the platform. For instance, anyone living overseas should be eligible for a 6 month extension; however, when I went to file my extension, it asked if I was active military overseas. I'm not active military, so I chose no. It said I was living in USA so I can't file the extension. It didn't give me a choice to be a non-military person living overseas. So I couldn't file the extension. So I paid the extra money to get the tax professional guidance...just to find out that they are only available 5am-5pm PST. This can be very difficult when you are living overseas and have a job. They should really have 24-hour support. And chat-based 24-hour support. Having USA-hours based support only made it very challenging and made me feel like I wasted my money on the extra service. Now I'm on the fence for whether I will use Turbotax next year or just go to a legal professional to do it all.
