Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sucks Constantly up charging. Very difficult to find how to opt out of the upcharges for the 10th time and submit the tax return. Used to be different a few years ago but Turbotax has gone down hill. I've always used Turbotax but this will be the last time I ever use them. 1/10 Do not recommend

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Changes Make Filing by Mail Difficult. Every year together with my adult son we complete his taxes with Turbo Tax. We often file his state return by mail. This year when we attempted this we were cycled and made to enter a credit card information and paid $25 for the electronic filing when all we wanted was to mail in his return. We were allowed to mail a voucher linking his payment check to the electronically filed return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same Issues, Year Over Year I question if the software developers and accountants actually use TurboTax to file their own taxes, because if they did, I would suspect the reoccurring annoyances and poor functionality would be corrected. 1. Functionality and benefit of the help center and FAQs seems to be less and less each year. Been relying more on Google searches. 2. Most people have multiple monitors at their homes and I move windows around based on what I'm reviewing to complete data entry. Your popups only open on the main display rather than the monitor where I've moved the TurboTax window. 3. After I've completed the interviews and I'm only going back to check certain sections, even though I select "I'll choose what I work on", you still have to page through the interview again and confirm previously answered questions and several that you have to answer again which weren't retained from your initial pass. Example: Vehicle Expenses ... I just want to doublecheck the mileage totals I entered, not page through 7 asked and answered screens. 4. Numerous topics contain questions where TurboTax should know the answer and prepopulate, especially when the customer has used TurboTax the prior 20+ years. Example: NOLs, carryforwards, etc. I have to search prior year tax forms numerous times to complete the current year return. 5. By the time you finish all the interviews and enter all your data, you're ready to be done (I complete 3 returns each year, personal and 2 businesses). It's frustrating having to muddy through all the questions after final review just to get to the point of e-filing. I live and work in Texas, yet had to go through 2 screens to skip state taxes. TurboTax should recognize this and skip it for you. In addition, several of the post-review Q&A could be asked at the beginning to make exiting less painful. 6. I've worked on taxes the last 2 weekends, checking and rechecking to make sure I got everything entered (again doing 3 returns). So, I open TurboTax the evening of the tax deadline to e-file my taxes and TurboTax performs a software update which requires me to re-enter an activation key from an online purchase 5 months ago ... REALLY? I'm traveling, so I had to call my wife and waste 20 minutes having her dig up records of an electronic purchase so I could continue with the process. Icing on the cake!
