Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hidden Fee, Hidden Fee, Hidden Fee!!! Don't you love hidden fees? I know I do. For the first time ever, I could claim a Federal Retirement Tax Credit--and it would give me an extra $260 or so on my tax return! Great, I thought! But one downside...it would cost $39 to file because it would make my tax return "Complicated" instead of "simple"...okay...$39 isn't so big of a deal, so whatever! Ooooh boy, but that wasn't it! Because of the ~Deluxe~ package I was forced to select, it wasn't just $39 for the Federal Return I was getting the credit in--it charged me an ADDITIONAL $39 dollars for my two state returns! $117 in total, with NO transparancy that that would have been the case whatsoever. Well I went in full sunk-cost fallacy and figured I was in this far, just like I'm sure they know people do, and went whatever. I'm still net positive here, I guess I'll live with it this year. But then!! ANOTHER $39 dollars for them to pull the money I 'owe' them from my Tax Return?? ANOTHER?? So you get $156 in total, 75% of which were hidden fees. Great for you, TurboTax. You got me this year for expediency's sake, but I will never be filing with you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great free product. It was pretty quick to file taxes. I didn't care much for the race mode though. It felt like undue pressure on something that should have a substantial amount of reviewing time and not be rushed like the race mode was implying you should participate in like some kind of battle pass format to keep people competing and potentially missing important information and having to re-do the whole process over. Please remove this from your site as it is not conducive to proper tax time thinking.
