Customer Reviews:

  • Seems different this year
    I've been a Turbo Tax user for a number of years, always raved about it however this years edition does not seem as easy to navigate. Found it more challenging to use. Not sure why....more info
  • A lot of complaints about some Great Software!
    This was the first time doing my own taxes in 10 years. After my CPA charged me $500 last year, I thought it was time to look in to doing my own. Most reviews gave the 2007 version 1 or 2 stars. The complaints were varied, but most had to do with a feature that was included before wasn't available in 2007 and/ or had an additional charge (1 e-file). Intuit heard you and for 2008 the software is awesome. I live in Florida, so no state tax, but it was include in the version I bought. I guess I could complain that I paid for something that I couldn't use, but I won't. I bought the most expensive version because we have had a small capital gain and some self-employment income. Both we covered easily by TurboTax Home & Business. Most of the negative comments from 2007 had to do with the amount of e-files allowed and printings. The 2008 version allows 5 e-files. I went over my taxes with a fine tooth comb and questioned every line against my 2007 return prepared by a CPA and they checked out perfectly. When there was something I didn't understand, I submitted a question and got multiple answers that I would research. Even with what I would consider moderately complicated taxes, I was done in 3 hours and received my refund electronically in my bank account in 8 business days. All for 1/5th the cost. I'm using it again next year....more info

  • State verifies TurboTax reliability
    I got a letter from my state's department of taxation with a card in it that said I had not paid my taxes and was going to be subject to penalty, etc., I checked my bank statement and saw where they had been paid, so I looked further into the papers included to see what it was all about. Although it did not specifically say so, apparently I had been randomly chosen as a candidate for the state to run an automatic simple audit to see if they could catch errors and suck some more money out of me, and the paper enclosed said they had adjusted my tax liability as follows: Then every line showed the exact same figures for my TurboTax return and the state's figures, with no additional tax liability. It was yet another example of how the state wastes money but a good endorsement for TurboTax!...more info

  • Beware When Buying This Product!
    This product will NOT WORK with .NET 3.0 or .NET 3.5 and a person must have .NET 2.0 [ONLY!!!] installed to make TT work. What's up with that Intuit? Apparently, Intuit is only two software versions behind for creating a viable useable product that people can use.

    ALSO, it seems a person cannot install .NET 2.0 on their computer to make the software work if they already have .NET 3.x already installed. What's up with that Microsoft?

    PLUS, try finding anywhere on the Amazon site in the software description where it states that the TT H&B F+S+eFile requires .NET 2.0 before the software will even load. You know, just to warn the user and make life a bit simpler for a regular Amazon customer! What's up with that Amazon?

    Sadly I bought the software expecting no problems installing TT on a new computer. However I discovered I am unlucky enough to have up-to-date .NET 3.5 installed and so I got a failed install with this obscure message that related to a problem with Intuit. Finally, I discover I'm in somekind of obscure software hell where there is no help and no sensible solution.

    What ever happened to pride in one's business you guys? This is not the way to build user trust. Why do you guys think the end-user is going to tolerate such poor products and services? I feel like I am dealing with AIG excutives here.

    As for my solution, I'm going for my money back and let Amazon worry about dealing with the complaints about Intuit products.

    User-Guys, check your computer's .NET 2.0 status before you give Amazon money for this software!!!...more info
  • Don't be fooled -- state forms are NOT included
    I bought this program only to find that you either have to download the software for state returns online or wait a week for them to mail you a disk!!!!!

    Completely deceptive packaging, don't be fooled into thinking you get everything the box says you do. ...more info

    I 've been using TT for 3 years now. No problem. Price is the only obstacle....more info
  • doesn't really do business taxes
    If you want to do anything more than very simple home based business taxes, you need to get the regular Business Tax version. This will let you create a 1099, but is not set up to handles expenses. Basically useless for business purposes. ...more info

  • Turbo Tax-Please Help!
    Hello, I bought a Turbo Tax Home and Business 2008 version in order to make the 2008 tax return on 2009. Now, I have a question because I am confused: Do I have to buy each year a Turbo Tax version???, that means: Do I have to buy on 2010 the turbo tax Home and Business 2009?

    Please Help!

    Thank you ...more info

  • Mixed Thoughts
    H&R Block wanted $300 for a simple personal income tax with 1099s, trying it manually left me with forms all over the table and floor, and erasing holes into the papers. Eventually Turbo-tax Home/Business did the job, but not before considerable aggravation.

    Specifically, I wanted to enter mileage for job searches, and the program wouldn't let me. Tried phoning for help, and was notified there was a 45-minute wait-time; alternative was to appeal to a users' group. (No offense intended, but the idea of asking others who may or may not be knowledgeable seems like Turbo-Tax is pawning off their responsibilities to help users to others.) Finally ended up stuffing the mileage into another area - hope I don't get audited. On the plus side, really appreciated TurboTax's ability to immediately make revisions (including on state tax forms), and the ability to e-file the federal forms.

    Finally, charging extra to e-file state forms just seems like unjustified chiseling....more info
  • Taxes...
    Turbo Tax was easy to install and use. This is our first year to use Turbo Tax so I'm expecting it to be even easier next year with the ability to import information....more info
  • Not for complex tax returns
    Daytraders or active traders beware: this product cannot import more than 3,000 trades for the schedule D detail. The best you can do if you have more than 3,000 trades is to use another software like TradeLog to create the detailed Scedule D and then manually override the Turbotax form to enter the summary numbers from the TradeLog bottom line.

    As a corollary problem, Quicken or Quickbooks are also very poor in handling high volume trading, usually throwing up a large volume of errors in unmatched transactions if you are a momentum day trader who makes a lot of buy/sell short/cover trades in short periods of time. Even if you manage to get Quicken straightened out in these errors, TurboTax will still NOT import more than 3000 trades from Quicken nor from a third party TXF file.

    And by the way - for 2007 tax year I sold a rental house, under $250K that I had lived in for 3 out of the prior 5 years so should have had no capital gains, but TurboTax couldn't handle the situation and showed $12,000 in taxes. Had to go to an accountant to handle the tax return properly.

    Finally, both Turbotax and Quicken don't handle self employed health insurance correctly. Neither one has a category for it, although there is a specific line on the tax return for it. Years of complaining by many different users on the Intuit forums have not generated a change from Intuit.

    All in all, I've used TurboTax successfully in past years where my tax situation was fairly standard, I was not self-employed and I had no real estate transactions, which is probably true for 90% of buyers, but if your situation is complex with self-employment or real estate transactions, TurboTax probably can't handle the whole job.

  • Turbo refund
    Moderately easy to operate. Generated return for combined business personal filing. Electronically filed return and refund arrived in less than 2 weeks. TurboTax might make the navigation capabilities a bit better, otherwise, quite satisfied with product....more info

  • Good
    Good product. The only negative is that it is very hard to find allowed contributions to business retirement plans....more info
  • Don't count on e-filing with this product
    Pretty good product overall, but here's a big problem: It wouldn't accept my checking account number for e-filing, which means I have to wait an extra 3 weeks or so to get my refund mailed to me--that's a real drag. There's absolutely no support for this sort of problem, which other people are experiencing, and in general the support looks pretty terrible. (Believe me, the problem wasn't that I was plugging in the wrong account or routing number, I verified it with the bank and have been using those numbers for direct deposit for years.)...more info
  • If Turbotax says you owe a penalty, don't believe it
    Is Turbotax in bed with the IRS? It does not include a way to accurately figure a tax withholding penalty. It assumes the simplest method applies to everyone. This is certainly a plus for the IRS. If Turbotax says you owe a penalty, manually add form 2210 (which Turbotax fills out, but doesnt include it with your saved forms unless you manually add it). There are many exceptions that you may qualify for, and there are alternative ways to figure a penalty. Turbotax said I owed $86 penalty, but I actually owed no penalty. When I searched Turbotax for additional tax penalty information, it refers you to Form 2210 and only says, "it's complicated." Too complicated for Intuit software engineers to write an algorithm to solve this discrepancy?

    I wonder how many other exceptions that Turbotax glosses over with a generic approach? You'd think with such a cash cow as Turbotax, Intuit would feel they could devote some resources to this.

  • Bloated, increasingly difficult to use. too much advertising. Poor help system.
    I've been using TurboTax and Quicken for many years and with each new version I buy, I edge closer to looking at the competition. This year's TurboTax is probably pushing me over the line.

    First, I truly hate the endless in-your-face advertising for other Intuit products. I am buying a software product and paying a healthy price for the usability of the software - not to have an endless stream of ads for other Intuit products shoved in my face.

    Secondly, TurboTax's help system is just plain awful. This is the first year I received Social Security payments - and I had questions about their taxability. I had to go through three layers of help menus before winding up with an official IRS publication. Why have three layers of superfluous inapplicable information?

    Intuit pushes a lot of the burden online for help, which is not the most efficient - or helpful - facility to use.

    Picking up your last year's tax return as a starting point for the current year is not a wise move. Better to start from scratch.

    The "guided interview" is ridiculous. A one size fits all approach wastes a lot of your time.

    Overall, I think this is my last year of not considering alternatives to TurboTax. Intuit has done a lot of rotten things to its customers. A few years back, they implemented a copy protection scheme that could cripple your computer. This year they implemented an outlandish charge for printing alternate returns. On both occasions, Intuit backed down with an explanation that they "blundered" - but not before trying to rip off their customers.

    Hopefully there is an equivalent or better product out there because I am fed up with TurboTax and its arrogance toward its customers.

  • My Quick Books 2006 doesn't transfer over
    The main problem was that my Quick Books 2006 was too early a version to transfer its balance sheet with all my information to Turbo Tax so everything had to be done manually. The response time for any unique question NOT related to any tax advice came days too late and was boilerplate (which I didn't realize).
    Other than that, I guess it was satisfactory and certainly cheaper than my accountant who wanted to charge me at least $1200 for a simple return. I was thankful that Turbotax was able to tell me that it looked correct, and I felt confident that I would not get rejected by the State or the Federal for a clerical or inadvertent error....more info
  • Good program with a few kinks
    My husband and I have been using Turbotax for home and business for a number of years and noticed a marked improvement in the product -- although some of that might be we have become more familiar with the program! It is helpful to be able to download the previous year's return and update the information rather than starting from scratch each year. The kinks in the program relate to finding certain information -- the "route" is not necessarily intuitive. ...more info

  • Don't gamble on any state e-filing with TurboTax!
    The product itself is not terrible but THE REAL RIP-OFF came when I decided to e-file the state return. Since the free federal filing got rejected (who knows why -- something to do with my husband's social security data that has never caused the slightest issue with paper filing), the state filing automatically also was rejected -- but TurboTax still charged me $19.95 for this completely useless service. They aren't interested in reducing the charge, either. SO WHY GAMBLE? If you pay TurboTax for this you could end up just being out money for NOTHING, when you could have mailed the thing in for much less (and not had to print the whole freaking thing out again either). Next year, I won't bother e-filing at all, but if you do ... WAIT before paying for any state return to make sure the federal return was accepted. This company has lost a tremendous amount of goodwill from me. I will certainly be looking for alternatives next year....more info
  • Audit protection not all that hot?
    This really refers to the 2007 audit review insurance provided by Tax Resources Inc. I purchased it thorough TurboTax for my 2007 taxes and now I'm being audited - a comprehensive, all inclusive, no stone left unturned audit..... The audit is scheduled for April 22, 2008 and I won't get to meet the tax accountant assigned to my case until the day before the audit. I'm feeling that's a little late....how do you "strategize"?? I have two schedule C's and a lot of complicated stuff going on. Anyway, this is my first audit so I don't really know what to expect. Also, I understand the accountant is paid a lump sum, so I have to question his motive for spending time on my case, or giving me good representation. I'm not expecting a lot, I guess. I really wonder if I shouldn't just represent myself! If anyone has any input, please, I'd love to hear it!...more info

  • Fifty doloars cheaper
    Because it was $50 cheaper than everywhere else, I was wary that it would not work. It worked perfectly. As with other times I have purchased things from Amazon, the quality has been the same but the price has been better. The only thing I could fault it for, is that I was led to believe that I could e-file both State and Federal 1040s. They asked for another $20 to e-file State so I printed the forms and sent them off myself. I received verification of the Federal filing and overall, am very pleased....more info
  • Amazingly easy
    This is the third year I've used Turbo Tax for Home and Business and it is amazingly easy to use. I do mine and my daughter's, even though she does not have a business. I listen to my friends talk about paying an accountant to do theirs when I know their taxes are no more complicated than mine. The great thing too, is that it will automatically import your info from last year, saving time with duplication of info as well as giving you instant comparisons. Great product - don't know what I would do without it now....more info
  • Turbo Tax Home and Business
    I can't say much about it yet as we are still in the middle of using the software. It was reccomended by a friend who is a retired CFO. So far it has helped a lot used in conjunction with Quicken. Looks like a big refund! Also saved money by doing our taxes ourselves....more info
  • You need to get used to it
    TurboTax contains now one free state return. It is free to fill out, however they charge you $16 if you want to e-file it. This is ridiculous since some of the States like Maryland offer free e-filing right from their website. The software itself is seems to be complicated to me since I have always filed taxes manually and it seems to me to be more transparent and understandable when you file it manually. With this software you are being asked a million of questions and you do not really know or understand what is going on in the background until you see the final forms. Beware of making an entry error into some parts of it, like the business income section. It does not want to revert your initial entries so you have to delete the entire section and start over. When you want to report the interest income of your children with you tax return, good luck looking for it. It is tough sometimes to find things in this software that are on paper very easy to take care of....more info
