Rated 4 out of 5 by not what it use to be the software is easy to use and fast but for the past 5 years i have used the deluxe edition and it worked great but this year i had to upgrade to premier because of a 1099b that was included in the past software, that was an extra $30 for one little section and when the deluxe edition ask me to upgrade it showed $25 but when it took me to the store it was $30 plus tax the deluxe has worked the last 5 years very sad i had to upgrade this year not sure what i am going to do next year, i like turbo tax but not for an extra cost. thanks January 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by cannot file state Message said to down load state. I have done that for 5 days in a row. Still cannot do my state. After paying 69.98 for the Priemier program a name change should be made from Premier to trash.. February 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed I have been a TurboTax user for about 20 years. This is the first time I had to move to Premiere to complete my taxes. Due to this, I will look at other solutions to do my taxes to see if any match up to turbo tax.. February 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Removal of invest ment income on delux I was surprised and disappointed that the delux excluded investment income and had to return it and buy the premeire version . If this is not added back next year I will have to consider another tax program. I do not want to do it after 10+ years with turbo tax but it nakes no sense to pay $25 more just becasue I sold some mutual funds. January 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by As usual, Turbo Tax walks you through all the usual tax situations / factors quite easily. Entire process was finished in record time this year! When it comes to more esoteric situations, the user pretty much needs to know (already) what they are doing in order to properly submit the information. Only complaint (first ever) is that the software required an upgrade (from Deluxe to Premier for $30) in order to handle investment income. This was not the case in past years ... Deluxe handled the low-complexity investment income situation just fine. January 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Tech Support! Overall very good experience. However, bought Deluxe first, then had to upgrade to Premier. I had forgot both password and backup word, so couldn't get into my account. The technician helped me through that, and stayed on the phone until I upgraded and moved on with Premier. January 19, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 Fine for simple taxes - breaks when complicated I've used Turbo Tax for about 20 years. As my income and net worth grow and my taxes become more complicated, Turbo Tax struggles more and more. If you need to file a special form and not use Step-By-Step the forms are often closed off and can't be edited. Also, if you try to e-file and you can't get a good pin from government, it locks you in e-file limbo and you can't then switch to filing by mail and get complete instructions. October 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by As expected with some surprises on extra charges Just be aware that they only give you one free state ($40 extra) and on top of that each state is $19.90 to efile. Reading the small print I now see it buried on the back of the box. Next year i'll go in with my eyes wide open. Funny thing is that the difference between what I paid a CPA is not as great as I thought. January 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by If you sold your main home - buy Premier version I bought Deluxe version because it said for Homeowners and Deductions - half way through it stopped my at the 'did I sell my house' question. If you answer yes - it stops you and says the forms aren't available in this version and you must upgrade to Premier for an additional $35. That stunk because the box was labelled for HomeOwners (even if you purchased another home after the sale) and you had to spend more money to do your taxes. After doing all that, and de-installing and re-installing all of that, the state download didn't work. I spent 45 minutes on the phone with support to have them finally 'push' me a state version manually - then it worked. For me - it was too many problems for the money I paid (twice). It's enough to look at alternatives next year after using TTax for nearly 20 years. January 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad change Don't like the fact that I had to buy 2 TurboTax programs to do what one did last year. Thanks for 25.00 back offer but had to spend 80.00 to do what Deluxe did last year. February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product A trust worthy software that I have been using for over 26 years. I use QuickBooks as another great product made by Intuit. All my finances are handled with Intuit products. Great company. October 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by I was blind-sided. After starting the return, i learned that Basic, which I had used for many years, would not handle capital gains and that i needed to spend $90 instead of $20. Next year will be different. April 3, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by 2014 Tax Experience Probably will use another form of tax filing next year. Have never in 6 years had trouble printing the required documents, until this year. Still have not printed what I need to send with my check to the IRS. February 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Much confusion this year between the software I used last year and this year. Had more difficulty this year than last year. Software description should offer more help in what to purchase February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Customer Service!!! I have been a customer for almost 10 years and was shocked when I was about to submit my returns to pay over $100.00 which I never have. I called and spoke to a rep who guided me through the process to get 1/2 off the fees!! Thank you so much!!! January 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Downgrade of service The product that i thought would fufill my needs as turbotax deluxe no longer is sufficient. That is because the many things that the original deluxe edition, which i have used for more than half a decade, will no longer meet my needs. It is because Intuit has removed features from the Deluxe version and placed them in higher tier of service that of course costs more. Sad that they exploit their customers by removing services that have been there for more than half a decade. January 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by This year it stinks I did not have a good experience at all filing my taxes with the TurboTax website this year. I could not charge my Virginia income tax filing cost to my credit card and I could not purchase the Audit Defense feature on my credit card either. I was not happy with using TurboTax this year. January 27, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing VERY disappointing this season. "Premier" suddenly needed to report stock sales. Required downloading, uninstalling, re-installing, re-updating and after all of that nonsense (at least 1.5 hours lost), the free state of Ohio package failed to download. I'll make a tech support call later. January 28, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Completed my federal and state returns. Could not file my state return because the forms were not available. When forms became available I paid the fee and tried unsuccessfully to file the state return. It kept going back and trying to get me to furnish additional information for my federal return which had already been successfully e-filed. It was in a loop and I could not do anything. No telephone number and help feature is useless. No idea how to e-file my state return which I have already paid for. January 22, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Refund But.... As always Turbo Tax is user friendly, and gives options for different user levels beginners or those who are more experienced with filing taxes. It does great with finding errors before filing. The e filing is great. This year it seems different. I purchased the Deductions and Homeowners and half way through my taxes it told me I needed another one. No where on the other one did it show that I needed it (I sold my house) . I would have never guessed I needed the Investments & rental properties. Jeers on that. Jeers on the fact paying for the upgrades on line was way more than going and purchasing the Premier. So I now have a Deluxe paid for that is unusable for me. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Been using turbo tax for 11 yrs and love it When I went on your site and had to upgrade to premium I used my capitol one credit card and didn't get the discount. A little bummed about that. January 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy In have used Turbo Tax Delux since at least 2006. This is probably the last year I will use your service. The removal of forms C to F is a problem for me. I really only have one 1099B that com[plicates my tax return and feel like you gouged me for $30 for one form. I will be looking at the other guys next year. I was very happy with the product and cost until this year. I feel like you let me down. 5 Stars previous years -1 Stars now February 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by TurboTax Deluxe Bought Deluxe version. Found out it would not efile my forms without upgrade to premier version. I purchased the upgrade and nothing changed on my return. Did not receive the $25 refund for upgrade even after paying for the upgrade. Last time I will use turbo tax. Will also switch my business to different software. January 28, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Long-Time but Never-Again TurboTax User I am a long-time loyal user of TurboTax who will never use it again because you stripped features (e.g., Schedule D) from the Deluxe version of the product forcing me to use the Premier version....a very bad move on your part. February 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I am unable to print my IL state income tax return due to the water mark. Do not File. There is absolutely no help with the issue. February 1, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by The format was altogether different from years past. I was very disappointed with the program. Not as easy as last. And I had to upgrade to Premier from Deluxe, which I never had to in yearspast. Why???So that cost me an additional $35.00, but I am eligible for a $25.00 refund from Turbo Tax. So , all in all the program cost me $70.00. Very disappointed with Turbo Tax. I will try a different tax program next year. January 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Your fees! The cost of your CD, the state filing fee, and your outrageous filing fee cause me to question whether I will continue using Turbotax in the future. I know that I will categorically look for less-expensive alternatives for filing my state and federal taxes for 2015. Dan Morley February 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 Acceptable but shortcomings & errors I have several (more than desirable) comments which I submitted specific sections in TT. One of the biggest challenges is that when doing a search in Help, multiple words are handled as an 'OR' search. Hence the list of results is nearly unusable since there are so many (try: amortize tax exempt bond). Also, information is not included in a return without an easy way to find out why (e.g. not including a Schedule B event though the various 'messages' say that documenting tax exempt bond amortization is required (that info would be posted on Schedule B) but since taxable interest is less than a threshold ($1,500, I think) then Schedule B is not included. October 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Long time customer Please call me for details. Paid for state and no state came forward....am calling for a refund on state forms. You have a serious loop issue in your program. Who in the world updated your program..... serious problems. I will give you my email, if my prize is my state forms that I paid for! January 31, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by MAD I have used Turbo for 20+ years and this year I had to buy $66 more in extras to file. Schedule D used to be contained in Deluxe version, no longer! E-File used to be included in Deluxe, no longer! April 2, 2015
