Rated 2 out of 5 by from Last year filing with TurboTax I've been filing for 6 years. Last year, I received a letter from the IRS with an error so I had to pay a penalty. This year, I started off with the "live" agent but it was a Bot and provided no assistance at all. In order to go to the cheaper version, I had to completely re-do my taxes. I am not confident that my taxes are correct.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Makes filling in forms fairly easy. Can make mistakes. Have been penalized $27 two years in a row. Weird that it was the same amount both years with this service doing the filing. Overpriced for self employed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turbo Tax Review When using the Turbo Tax link from Fidelity I would like the option to pay up front with the discount so that I can look at my full return earlier in the process to compare to last years return. I found it confusing going through the medical deductions. I'd rather see all the deductions in a menu up front instead of going through them piecemeal by screen. I have found that I prefer using your software based product over the web based product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Turbo Tax is very difficult I couldn't print and review anything until I paid to file them. In the past I could at least view all of the documents prior to paying. Also, while trying to efile it said I didn't file with TurboTax last year which I did. It even filled in my AGI amount. Some of the explanations contradicted themselves making it confusing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fiasco this Year! Had issues in January purchasing additional state returns. After hours on phone, finally resolved. Now when I go to e-file, Turbotax is unable to accept payment for e-file fee. Again, spent hours on the phone with support. Ridiculous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be Streamlined Too much repetition. There should be an early question - will anything on your return concern Foreign information. That would skip about 10 questions. You could also ask if everything is similar or the same as last year so you don't ask 3 or 4 times if I'm filing single or joint. Things like that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Program Overall Overall, my experience with this program over the past 15 years has been good. The questions "fill in" the forms which makes tax preparing fairly easy. I did have to speak to Turbotax agents a few times. In the past, the wait time was hours long. This year I only had to wait a few minutes to speak with someone. That is a huge improvement for this company. On my second call, I needed a tax expert or CPA. Without hesitation, I was transferred to a CPA who was extremely helpful. After finishing my taxes and checking for errors, I had an error I could not resolve. The Turbotax agent was not familiar with the tax situation so I asked to speak to a CPA or tax advisor. I was denied. I was told they would not speak to me because I was not using the online version of Turbotax. I found that odd since I had spoken with someone 3 days earlier and I was not using the online version on that day. There is discrepancy within the company on this policy which needs attention. Every year I have at least one software glitch. This year I had one which was spoken about on the Help Center. When these glitches occur, Turbotax needs to update the program to fix these errors. When many people have the same issue, it's the program, not the person doing the taxes. Lastly, I am happy that I have used Turbotax over these many years. I have friends and relatives who had to file an extension because their CPA's could not finish taxes in time this year. Happy to know that I was able to finish mine with Turbotax without having to do that.
