Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too expensive, adding fees to finish taxes I purchased this from Amazon, It did not include state, so I spent $45 for the state and had to pay an additional $25 to efile my state. Not a good deal. With all the money I put into it, I could have hired a professional

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Glitchy this year Not sure why it was hard, but even though I am supposed to be allowed to install to 5 computers I had issues each time. I just did one to a laptop and the other to my home desktop. The desktop never ran correctly - would not download paid for states - and the laptop seemed to have to reactivate regularly. Driving me to look for a new tax program next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Surprise reqmt for authentication after update Turbotax required authentication after an update. I was using a PC in a different geographic location than the PC where I initially loaded it from CD (5 PCs permitted). Therefore, I did not have my authentication code with me. The Turbotax support help line stated that they would not give me a new authentication code and did not apparently have a way to validate me online. I was almost done with my taxes, so had to purchase a second CD. I find this out of touch with today's mobile environment and totally unsatisfactory. I've been a user of Quicken, Quickbooks, and Turbotax since they came out several decades ago and I am now looking at the competition as a result of this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as using the cd I don't like that throughout the process I am asked to buy/upgrade to additional software or buy subscriptions that I do not want. The program seems like a big commercial for their other products. Question features are almost useless for non-standard questions and you need to go through too much info to find the answers you need. No way to speak with a live person. Don't like that I can only do one set of taxes per email address. I did my son's taxes using my normal email account. I then went to do my own taxes and when I entered my email, it automatically brought up my sons return info. I had to use an old email I do not use to do my own return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TurboTax is excellent. I have used TurboTax for the last several years. I found it be easy to use and very accurate. My one nit is that there is no easy way to chat with an advisor if you run into a problem. Also, it is not clear how to file an amended return for an earlier tax year.
