Rated 2 out of 5 by from Losing confidence in TurboTax Online Premier I have used turbo tax for at least 5 years. But for the second year in a row, I struggled to find where to enter my federal estimated tax payments. Early in the program, it asked me to check yes or no whether I made estimated tax payments. I checked yes. Then the program never prompted me to enter any estimated tax payments. I got to the end of the program, and was informed by TurboTax that I was assessed an underpayment penalty of $492. So I used the program's search tool to figure out where to go back to and enter my estimated tax payments. I entered those estimated tax payments, and the program then recalculated my tax owed and my underpayment penalty and told me that I owed a $8 underpayment penalty. I was satisfied with that, but then when I got to the end and reviewed my federal return before filing, I saw that I had a $492 underpayment penalty again. I called TurboTax's helpline and the representative listened to my concern and said that she was transferring me to a TurboTax Expert to help me at no charge. The call transferred, and I got an automatic message asking me if I wanted to purchase TurboTax expert service. I asked for a representative, but the automatic message only wanted a yes or no answer and eventually disconnected me. So I got no help. My only recourse was to go back and start again with deleting my estimated tax information and re-entering it and going through all of the subsequent steps again. This was very frustrating. Even more frustrating is that I identified the difficulty with entering estimated tax payments in my TurboTax review last year after filing my 2020 return and had to endure the same problem this year. Additionally, I did not like being asked to purchase tax expert advice several times during the income tax program. One time is sufficient to ask me about whether I want an upcharge, not several times. As a result of my loss of confidence in TurboTax, I am considering using HRBlock online tax prep service next year.
