    I Use TurboTax Every Year

    I used to do my taxes manually via printed tax forms and booklets that I would get from the post office. Then I would mail my return. It was very tedious and slow. Once I started using TurboTax Basic, the taxes got a lot simpler, I can do it at home at my own pace, and everything is electronic. The questions are organized well and easy enough to understand (for taxes). There are tons of questions, which I mostly answer no or 0 to, but it is taxes, so what do you expect? It takes me about 30 minutes to get through everything since I try to read every question carefully. I like it a lot, and e-file is quick, painless, fast, though I wish the basic version was maybe $10 less.

    This program makes it so easy to file your taxes, just answer some questions, fill in some blanks and voila you're done! For the price and quality of the program, it doesn't get much better. Just don't do what I did a couple years ago, I accidentally installed the program onto a computer that had no capability of printing from. Once you load the program onto a computer, you cannot load it onto another, you get to buy another copy of the program.

    Less expensive and stressful than a tax preparer!

    I have been using turbo tax for years. I love that it imports your previous tax information, which keeps you from having to re-input everything if not much has changed except the dollar amounts. It is pretty easy to follow and allows you to save without having to work on all at one time. Plus you are able to directly e-file if you desire. Information is up-to-date with current tax laws and help is available if you need it.

    I've been using Turbo Tax Basic since 2000 and can't imagine what it would have been if I had to do it manually. I've never had a problem working with it and filing electronically means I get my refund that much earlier. The only problem I ever had was when my broker sent me a corrected 1099 for tax year 2012. I had already filed and received my refund so I had to file a corrected return and pay the additional tax.

    I am employed but with investments and my wife owns a small business. Even the "Basic" program is capable of doing all our tax preparation. Since it automatically downloads last year's data, you do not forget anything that needs to be carried forward. It also uploads any changes, such as new forms, made by the IRS between December and April. It is easy to edit if you suddenly remember some additional deductions.

    The program does everything you'd want a tax program to do. It asks all the right questions to prevent you from forgetting to include items. It is very easy to switch between the tax forms section and your answers to see how the answer affects your return. I filed electronically and also printed a copy for myself. I received my refund 2 1/2 weeks later

    Turbo Tax is easy to use tax preparation package. It leads you through each provision by asking questions that anyone can easily understand and follow. Makes preparing and filing your taxes easier and faster and is a painless way to complete a dreaded chore . And, then you can easily e-file at no additional charge. You can't ask for better than that.

    TurboTax is simply the best tax software available on the market today. I save hundreds each year as compared to what even my CPA could find. Probably because I don't have time to sit with him/her and go over all the options. With Turbotax, I can go at my own speed and the results are very comprable to those of my CPA.

    The best thing about Turbo tax is that it imports

    Once you get everything entered into TurboTax for the first year, you're in good shape for following years. It imports all the info from previous years so that you don't have to remember all that stuff. I have some rental properties and it handles all the depreciation and the carry forward stuff seemlessly.

    Option of going through tax filing step-by-step, or selecting various areas of interest yourself. Saves time by transferring data from previous year. Pop-up boxes with more detailed explanations are typically helpful for your questions. Allows you to file your own taxes even when the going is complicated.

    I just answered the questions and forgot about forms and tedious instructions. Easily downloaded tax information from my employer and financial institutions. Saves so much time if you import your tax return from last year. I just wish it didn't cost so much for software I only use once and never again.

    I have used turbotax for years to do my own taxes! It walks you through everything or gives you the option to go to certain places. You get a free federal filing too! It also transfers data from the previous year so you have less information to enter! Love it and will continue to use it!

    It is a great tax return software. This is my first time buying it. From the start, it will walk you thru step by step to the end. If you make a mistake, you can just press "back" button, make corrections. I recommand this to anyone who doesn't like to file taxes online. Great software.

    I've used Turbo Tax for several years now and can only recall minor issues in the past when the application insisted that a value be input even when it was not applicable to my tax situation. The new versions are more user friendly. and really hard to screw up ... even by me!

    I have been using TurboTax for years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The people that are hired for a month at some tax services use a program like TurboTax, which asks all the right questions. So, why would you pay a third party when you can do your taxes yourself?

    I've always done my own taxes, even when I had investment property and active stocks. I was a paper filer until I used Turbo Tax last year. It's great. Easy to use and it walks you through any situation that applies to taxable situations. I'll continue to use it.

    Like all tax software, it's better if you're familiar with the actual tax form and understand each step the software guides you through. If you have a question don't continue until you find the answer. You want it done correctly because it's your taxes!

    I've been using this product for years. I've never had a problem with it. It looks at your return and advises you if anything in it would warrant a problem with the IRS. I will continue to buy and use this product until it ever lets me down.

    We have used Turbo Tax for at least 10 years. It works well and is compatible with other financial software. It also allows downloading of data from our Fidelity accounts. It also allows us to carry over invariant data from past year.
