Rated 3 out of 5 by paramountdrive Harder to use than before
Having to pay before seeing old returns that I filed through Turbotax is frustrating. We paid for these in previous years; why are you preventing us from downloading our own returns? It made filing this year's return more difficult.
Furthermore, in the state tax section, there needs to be a way to input multiple out-of-state purchases instead of manually entering in each item one at a time.

It was as good as having a CPA in front of you but without the extreme charge. I find Turbo Tax to be more accurate on helping you get the best refund than your personal CPA and the fact that TT goes over everything to make sure it's all accurate really relieves the stress of doing it yourself. I'll never go back to another CPA and pay their ungodly fees as long as there's Turbo Tax. Thanks!

Been doing my own taxes for years. Several years
ago started using TurboTax(TT). Since I started using TT tax preparation has become much faster, more accurate and much easier.
I let TT walk me through step by step. In my opinion, by far the best way to utilize all of TT's benefits. When finished I feel confident that my taxes are correct and I have paid what I legally owe and nothing more.

Rated 5 out of 5 Easy and Quick
I was at the computer 1 hour and 20 minutes after gathering all my information. This is so much better than doing tax forms with the tax booklet, calculator, pencil and hot coffee! That was my tax season last year when my computer went down. It required 3 days to complete. Thanks TurboTax for all your behind the scenes work. It makes a common taxpayer's job so much easier and understandable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Keefo Love Turbotax - saves my sanity
TurboTax allows me to keep my sanity while working my way through completing and filing taxes. I've been using it for over 10 years now, and it gets better every year.
As my taxes have become more complicated over the years, TurboTax has kept up, becoming more flexible, more guided, providing more information to answer questions, etc. It's such a great tool! I highly recommend to everybody!

I have always paid to have my taxes done by a professional tax preparer. Since I retired I have tried to find ways to save money. Turbo tax knows what questions to ask me, so I don't have to wonder if I'm forgetting something. I feel so confident that I've answered all their questions. Now I don't dread doing my taxes, and I trust Turbo Tax, so I'm stress free both before and after tax time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bdmiller I like to check the entries. It would be helpful if you could drill down on the totals. For example, If total taxes paid is $25,000, then I want to see a list of what income sources and taxes paid make up the $25,000.
I also intended to look at the completed tax form. However, following the program led me to submitting the return and never gave me the option to look at the actual 1080 form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDeClare Excellent Overall Ease of Use and Helpful Features
1. Use of previous year data where appropriate, saved time and money.
2. Logical sectioning and helpful edit capability provided.
3. Excellent capability to save your work and return to your last entry without fail every time.
4. The non-business bad debt section is a little difficult, but it flagged my errors and forced me to go back and figure out a way to correct them.

I have used TurboTax for several years now and have always been pleased with the results. I do have to use their support section on occasion and find it a little fuzzy, but with a little patience and rewording can usually come up with the answers to my questions. The importation of information is quick and easy and makes completing the format that much simpler. Can't recommend it more highly.

I've used TurboTax for years now. I always itemize because of kids, mortgage and charitites, so it costs more money and federal and state both cost separately, meaning TurboTax charges you to do your federal and then charges you to do your state. It doesn't do local. Regardless, it's always under $100 and I don't have to leave the comfort of my home. It's always current with the tax laws too.

I will never use turbo tax again. this year after importing a 1099-b form, it would not file electronic. The error was and adjustment code, which was not on my form. After reading questions about the same error, seems everyone had the same problem. I paid for the premier, and then was told I have to mail my taxes in since it couldn't fixed the adjst. code which is actually blank. Never again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Higgim Turbo Tax Really Really Works
This is my umpteenth year using TurboTax. One might think that should make it so easy to use. But this is an income tax return and its preparation and filing is not to be taken lightly. And TurboTax doesn't!!! It is sooo easy to use. The instructions are clear and if you have an unusual item to enter it is recognized as such, and TT asks questions about the item. User friendly!! Intuitive!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dpcrockett Very Good
When the smart check goes through, it is difficult to adjust the information. The program kept insisting that I had sold my car and I didn't understand that it just wanted a fair market value if I did sell it in the future.
I love that all of last years information is uploaded and that the federal information is loaded onto the state form. The explanations when I had questions were good also.

I've used TurboTax for the past 7 or 8 years. I feel confident that I am getting an accurate tax return that gives me the best refund with less likelihood of being scrutinized by the IRS. I use the online version, which imports my previous year's federal and state returns along with importing W-2 information from my employer. I recommend it to anyone inquiring about using this type of service.

I have used Turbo Tax for many years and have never had any problems. This year we had some new tax issues that I was worried about but with Turbo Tax I didn't have to worry. I was even contemplating going to an accountant, but after reviewing
Turbo Tax Premier, I decided to give it a try. It walked me through what I thought would be a nightmare with no problem at all. I am one happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wynnekdalton Soooo MONEY!
I am a mom of 3 young kids and can easily pickup where I left off to finish our tax return. I lalso ike being able to "learn more" with the definition windows when I come across forms or legal verbage I don't understand. Its so helpful. Then there is the partnership with Amazon where I use a portion of my federal tax return to buy an e-gift card. And 5% is matched! The process is sooooo money!

Been using TurboTax for years (more than I can remember now). Every year it somehow gets easier to use, performance improves, and the QA and available help is easy to understand and very thorough. I need to process some personal home office expenses, stock sales, higher education expenses, etc... and I have lots of confidence that TT is getting the job done right with the best possible refund.

2 of my kids who are married and haven't been on my taxes for at least 3 years showed up this year. Should allow me to deleted before I go through all their information. This was frustrating to me.
Submitting this review was a pain why do you need a nickname!
I had to keep trying to find a nickname that wasn't taken. Next year I will not fill this out. Again Wasting my time!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeeDee2020 Confused by Cost Basis on a casualty loss
Definitions for cost basis of stocks & property are clear but is a loss due to accident only the difference between the cost basis of the value of the car before and after? What about the insurance deductible? I know that is included because I had a car totaled and my tax man included it. There wasn't a place to note that information. It seemed to assume the whole amount of the car was a loss.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Aughoti Going backward
Since my laptop died halfway through, I'm glad I went with the web-based approach, and having last year's tax forms preloaded was VERY helpful.
But the software seems to be trying TOO hard to simplify and is actually less clear/less intuitive than the versions from several years ago.
The value proposition - convenience vs. cost - is tilting toward too expensive. Probably won't use next year.

We own rental property and our child is going off to college. Our taxes had to be done right and on time. Our taxes make the difference on how much finanical aid she receives. I know the return was done correctly and with the step by step instrucions it was a breeze. I saved at least a couple hundred of dollars doing them myself. This little bit of savings means alot to us. Every dollar counts now a days. Thank you so much Turbo Tax!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatGVA Great new interface
The new TurboTax is great. It's got a flexible design, and I felt like this took less than half the time to complete and file. It's streamlined and easy to use, and I imagine the icons will help some people as well.
In particular, I'm pleased some of the small bugs for foreign filers (Americans living overseas) have been fixed.
The instructions and explanations are extremely thorough and clear.
