Rated 5 out of 5 by from TurboTax Review I've been preparing tax returns for 40+ years and since I started using Turbo Tax 20+ years ago my tax preparation life has become enjoyable, not burdensome like prior to the release of Turbo Tax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CPA firm last year, Turbo Tax this year We have a moderately complex tax return so nothing can make this process a snap but it was precisely the thoroughness of the Turbo Tax questions that made me feel confident that I eventually did get to an acceptable result.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Bad I am trying to file and your program won't let me because it says I need form 8863 which I am not even using. This is the last time I am going to use Turbo Tax unless this is fixed soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issues Encountered Overall my Federal, NJ and NY returns were processed without difficulty. However, the major issue that I encountered repeatedly is that the software crashed when saving (i.e. before closing the program), which resulted in information having to be re-entered. I didn't have this problem when I completed my Federal and NJ returns, but once NY was added the crashing issue began occurring frequently. Also, it would be helpful if more guidance was provided when allocating income on the NY return. I had to research capital gains on the NY taxation website to complete. Finally, it would be helpful if the Federal extension was automatically printed out when printing the NJ return for filing so that it wouldn't be forgotten.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult transfer of info I went through a divorce and changed TT programs I used between 2015/16. I have a rental and investments and the programs did not want to transfer the info. I did not have all my tax info until late in year due to the divorce and when I called the help line they were formatting for new year, systems were down and would send me a new CD. I got charged 3x! No refund on charges and wrong disc twice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turbotax Year 2015 (late filing) Not too much consideration for us procrastinators who end up filing after the deadline for an extension.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second time user After entering data in the step to step section, it was often difficult to get back to the original entry page. The "edit" option would show the data, and if it was a summary of more than one entry, it would show the breakdown. But if there was a single entry, the edit option would allow the number to be changed, but did not seem to take you back to the original entry page. One example was real estate taxes for a primary home and a second home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvement Suggestion Eventhough the program said it was too late to file electronically, it still gave me the option - it should have recognized it was too late. (A really dinky criticism of an overall FANTASTIC product)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my experience I like the program and have used it since 2011. Everything I need to use is well done except the workings of form 1116. For 2016 the problem was it did not transfer the correct amount for foreign earned income. I spent 5 hours on-line with the Turbo Tax support crew to figure out what was wrong. The other issues are that when you request a new password you must use a US mobile phone or US zip code. I have neither. When you sign for federal e-file you must use a US drivers license, mine are expired. When you want Audit defense you must enter US state and zip code exactly like on your return. I do not live in the US so I can not do this. In summary, several places need to be rethought for people who do not live in the USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rental and foreign accounts This year I bought the TurboTax Premier version stating it is including rentals etc... Unfortunately it was not streamlined and a first draft that I did with the help of the program was completely wrong. Similarly, my home taxes ended up be entered twice, once in the home office and once in the deductions. I had to work hard to figure out how to correct those using the help button and sending myself to different places in the program that I would have never known how to get to. Similarly, regarding my foreign accounts, the program asked me a bunch of zip codes only to request me to remove all of them on the final review because they are international...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenges with K1 I do not like the fact that you have to create multiple K1s for unique situations... 1. If you have a combination of boxes 1, 2, and/or 3. 2. If you have Passive and General foreign transactions (box 16) You guys should build a feature that allows for a single K1 entry, along with the unique entry conditions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cost me money When asking for birth dates, and one or both is over 65, why don't you calculate a Schedule R? I must now go back and amend my 2015 and 2016 returns. Also would have been nice in 2014 had you given option of form 928. That could have possibly kept me from owing IRS $9,500.00+. You did not search for all possible deductions!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Program was simple and easy to follow. Checks made were very helpful. I find no faults in the program.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Install Latest Update Every time I brought the turboTax 2016 premier from Amazon on Feb2017. Its a nuisance that it requires to download the same 179.7MB latest update every time I start the turbo tax program. If this update is skipped, it would not open any turbo tax file. Please let me know how to fix this program error. Thanks you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 20+ years with TT TurboTax has really improved over the years. I moved from filing by hand between 1962 and the early 90's. About 1995 I discovered TurboTax and have been using it ever since. My choice is Prime since it has investments and some other features I need. BTW for over 25 years, I've filed an extension. Only one time have I had an audit and that was when I was forced to have a CPA file the return. '95 to present. That's 20+ years! But this next year, I'll either turn it over to a CPA or find a software that takes on the PONZI SCHEME capital loss issue on Form 4864! I've done by hand (the fillable IRS.gov forms 1040, Schedule D, 4864) now for three years because of a loss from a Ponzi Scheme, and it looks like I have another seven years to go. I wish your development dept would try to conquer that issue. Ponzi Schemes are not going away, unfortunately, but once bitten, you're very wary.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem with filing state They make it complicated not to file state return electronically. They want you to file state electronically to make money. Otherwise software is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MRS I have used some type of Turbo Tax ever since its inception, I believe. Love the program to death, but when I get into something I just can't figure out, I would like a voice to be able to help me get straight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Error with software....no correction possible We sold a Rental property that we have reported on tax return for 6 years. In an effort to report it, and following everything guideline and instruction of "how to" with Turbo Tax, we were unable to state the details of the sale....specifically the closing costs and any other costs accredited to the sale. Thus had to report sale stating GROSS SALE PRICE, ignoring closing costs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1040 It has always been difficult to deal with paper personal extensions mailed in before my software arrives. With it could be easy! On the other hand I do manage to locate the place to enter my payment with my 4868 each year.
