Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynnett Personal Asst was a life saver
I am hopeful that next years returns will go more smoothly now that this is set up and can be downloaded into following years.
Your Online call team was so calm and patient with me even though it was the 11th hour and counting. I was really surprised at the short 35 min wait and I really appreciate the call back feature that holds your place in line so you don't waste you battery while on hold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Csatisfied What did I do before TurboTax?
I have been a Turbo Tax user for quite a few years. I gather all needed information ahead of time and find the software very easy to use -- not intimidating at all! Turbo Tax makes the process of completing your tax return go very smoothly, and it "knows" what questions to ask. I let it walk me through everything and feel confident that nothing was missed. Couldn't imagine doing all this by hand again.

Really, looking at last year with Turbo Tax, cost almost exceed my combined refund.
Flew through state versions and not sure that they are correct. Bought the state versions but then they wanted an incremental fee for electronic filing after I pay for the state versions.
Manually printed and mailed in not worth the fees to file electronically.
Got to be better alternatives for the Mac user community.

Turbo Tax is great for most things, however when you want to file electronically for Fed and NOT for State - it drops the ball. You have to go back and look for the way to print the State return for filing. The buttons say "don't file now, I will do it later" It should offer a button for filing by mail right there. I can print the paper return and file by mail for a LOT less than the $25 they charge!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPCrusher Greatly simplifies the process of entering tax information and filing with the government. I appreciated the "correction" of Deluxe to include investment handling. I would suggest Intuit consider carefully omission of this detail in the future from a pricing perspective relative to competitor products. I have really enjoyed using Turbo Tax for many years now and would truly not want to switch products.

by Shirll Just a bit tougher this time
If the Feds can accept a FREE e-filing why can't my state? It makes no sense that I'm charged $19.99 for doing things the most simple, paperless way.
And this year it was a bit confusing/frustrating to have to 'upgrade' my TurboTax just for the one form I needed (K-1). I've used this EVERY year without any extra clicking & picking.
No worries - I STILL recommend your product to everyone I know. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveTek Turbo Tax works again
Picked up Turbo Tax at Costco as usual. Entered all of the income and deductions and let Turbo Tax do most of the work. The only problem I had was finding out that to enter the capital gains from having timber harvested was as a non-stock transaction under the investment income section. I found it via internet search rather than in the Turbo Tax helps. Other than that, Turbo Tax worked great, as usual.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Becent Ackward to Use
After all this time in use you would think that using Turbo Tax would be a comfortable experience but it is not.
The biggest problem is that it only gives limited feedback to the user after entry of data. Therefore no confidence is given that the data input is recorded properly or that it had the desired or expected tax effect. Continual comparison with previous years would also be a great enhancement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chip73 K-1 Report
Error check constantly brought me back to the K-1s to add zeros where I did not need to add zeros, I should have been able to just leave blank if there were no entries to be made. It was a real pain in the neck, not professional at all. And I do not know if Fidelity reported earnings on the K-1 companies, how do I know I have not double reported income. I have doubts about the veracity of the software.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Irishwp Still easy to use
Liked the east guide to enter information. Making changes after completing return could have been made easier, I had to figure out how to do this. For next year I'd like to see either Schedule D and associated schedules put back in Deluxe edition, or, if left in Premier edition, the price lowered. I will have Capital Gains/Losses in 2015 and do not feel this fact warrants the high price of the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YanHW Good and easy to use
It is good and easy to use. Nice feature to download W2 and 1099. The Federal and State Tax due at the top screen is also nice as a guide to encourage entering more deduction or stop entering deductions (ex:if the deduction that we have is much lower than the limit).
the downloaded form from Mutual fund has ordinary dividend and capital gain. The capital gain does not show clearly in the list of income.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ConstantinB Trying to file my 2014 Tax Returns...
I have been using TurboTax Premier for several years and everything worked OK. This year, I got stuck in the process of paying electronically. It is possible that I did not understand the process, so please excuse me if that was the case.
Anyway, please improve the final part of the program so that users spend less time trying to understand what the TurboTax programmer meant...

Rated 2 out of 5 by SeeYaTurboTax Emptied My Wallet
TurboTax took everything I used in the Deluxe version, moved it to the Premier version to charge more. Then they charge $39.99 to do my State taxes... but wait! This is not the efiling fee from last year. Just a completely new fee to empty my wallet. Later, I got charged for the e-filing fee, which also went up. Thank you TurboTax. You made a decade long loyal customer decide to use H&R Block next year.

I was able to complete my complicated tax situation (Dividends, Stocks, bonds, Proprietorship,...) by just answering the step by step questions. All I had to do was to take the same records and paperwork I would have normally taken to a paid tax preparer and type in the information it asked for. It remembers all my information from last year and imports it into the next year tax year. Quick and easy....

I have been using Turbo Tax for over 6 years and I am extremely pleased with the product. I love that it will transfer your items from the previous year and move over a lot of stuff that you would normally have to re-enter. If you are like me and work at the same job, live in the same house, and donate to the same places every year, you will enjoy this feature! Turbo Tax also makes the preparation easy.

I have used Turbo Tax for the last 20 years and have always been very satisfied with the product. It's user friendly and all the tax headaches, laws, by-laws, required forms were all within this product. I think it does a better job than a tax attorney.
I've used the tax experts online as well and they always answered my questions diligently and professionally.
Love it. Will use it the rest of my life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Haweye Can't imagine not using Turbo Tax every year.
Have used this product for many, many years including the electronic filing feature; no problems, no glitches! Enter current info for tax year with a guided step by step prompt. Or, if you're an expert and prefer to "do it yourself" that option is available also. Used Turbo Tax software while in business and continue to do so in retirement. Highly recommend Turbo Tax software for any user level or need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jean70 Oops!
This is lots better than manual calculations, and some things get better every year, but navigation is a bit cumbersome, when returning to add info -- it used to be easier to return to a specific spot in the return.
Home office deductions worked out fine (since I figured out what to do last year). Since I do most of my work away from an internet connection, it's hard to get detailed help when I need it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CalGrayNomad It was helpful for me to be able to go through the questions one by one and make sure we had entered all the appropriate info. I had some problem with the adult son and whether he was a dependent, but re-reading definitions at the last minute made me know that he didn't qualify, despite the answers to my questions being "yes." Being able to start and stop at various times and go back is really advantageous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KRhein Not as great as previous years
I've used Turbo Tax several years in a row, but this year seemed to have a lot of hang ups. I had a lot of issues removing or changing items once they were added. Also, I only filed ONE state return, which was supposed to be included in the original price. However, before I was able to submit return, it made me pay another $25 to file my one state return... Next year will probably not use Turbo Tax again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Albita Not my favorite job, but it works.
I believe that you need to engage more folks like me to work with user friendliness in all areas and parts and not just leave "improvements" up to the programmers & tax people. Not everything is intuitive. When we can't get something to work or compute correctly, it is most frustrating. However, when I had to call a customer service rep, they were great and stayed with me until we got the issue resolved.

We have out of state income. So, we wind up getting regular TT and 2 state TT in addition to the free included state TT.
The total TT bill is over $100. It makes me wonder if I should just forget TT and pay others to do it. Ours tax is not that complicated.
In addition, those non resident tax return is much simpler than resident tax return. It makes me wonder if I should have done it myself without using TT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Omyit Concerned
Have used program for many years. The minimal information and guidance available for completing state returns has always been a concern. Had a state return rejected twice due to missing data that should have transferred from the Federal return. At a minimum the state review should have caught the missing data.
Safety is becoming a real concern. Seriously considering reverting back to mailing my returns.

Turbo Tax has some good features but I had trouble finding certain items when going back to check on some entries.
Cost of second state return excessive. Couldn't get logged in to Turbo tax account, forgot password, but I know I answered the challenge question correctly. It kept rejecting login and there is no way to get around this. Couldn't get any help to resolve this, just runs you around in circles.

I've been using turbotax for years and love how simple it is to guide through all the return categories. The reviews and suggestions are very helpful to maximize deductions and refund potentials. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality product to ensure a correct filing without the burden of a much higher preparer fee. Kudos TurboTax for delivering a quality product at an affordable price

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woodman55 Always good....small changes could make it great!!
I've used TurboTax for several years now and always find it to be a relatively easy, step-by-step procedure. Each year, however, I find some of the wording confusing and small things like the "continue" button being too low/off the page, so that you have to scroll down every time you answer the current question. Overall, a good tool, but you have to understand the whole picture to make it work correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NAUMom Years of taxes done right
You need to have at least a basic understanding of your taxes to use any software program, since even with the error scanning, it's still garbage in, garbage out. Know which version you need so you purchase the correct program. Go through every walk through option. Have your paperwork ready. Realize that there will be updates almost up to filing day. Don't rush and this will make filing your return easy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LarrBeard TurboTax 2014 - Almost Bait and Switch
I initially bought the Deluxe version of TurboTax 2014. As I took a closer look at its features, I noticed that unlike the 2013 version - the 2014 Deluxe version would not import investment data from my financial institutions. I had to buy the more expensive Premier version to get the import feature.
I do not appreciate the stripping of features from the Deluxe version that had always been incorporated.

I have been using TurboTax for over 12 years and have never had a problem completing my tax efficiently. This is the first time I experienced a problem when I attempted to purchase my State e-file, and I guess their server was overwhelmed since I decided to wait and file on the 15th. I called their support number and they called me back within 2 minutes and completed the transaction. Overall great experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cantreview read the small print
husband thought he got a deal and turned out to be the most expensive purchase yet on turbo tax. make sure you read the small print. We bought premium and then paid an add'l $50 for an extra state plus $25 to file each state. The 2nd state I had a $0 balance but with the costs it meant a $75 charge. I made purchase last year and paid more upfront but all the rest was included. a bit disgruntled this year.
