    Easy to use for most situations

    I have been using Turbo Tax for years and have found it very easy to use. When I am done with my return, I always feel confident that it is done correctly using this program. This year, I have a new situation with a student in college and entering the related forms into Turbo Tax has left me confused and unsure that I have done it correctly. And reading the online help has not helped either. I feel that Intuit could have done a much better job of presenting this section. So if you have this situation, just beware that you might still have to seek out a professional and pay for that in addition to buying this software. But other than that, I would not hesitate to recommend Turbo Tax.

    Good way to do your taxes at home

    For those who are comfortable enough to do their own taxes, I'd recommend this in a second. For those who really don't know what it all means, I'd defer to the professionals unless you're simply doing a 1040-EZ. That is not to say you couldn't figure it out with the help feature, but we're talking about taxes here. Far too important to "think" you are inputting everything that you should. There is a return review process that will let you know if you've missed something or if something doesn't belong where you put it. There is also a tax defense that you can buy which insure you against an audit.

    Tax Preparation made easy

    I've used Turbo Tax for 8 years and will probably continue to use it for many more. I started using it to be able to file online, but there are more benefits than that. I don't have to read the tax codes to find what qualifies as a deduction or as income, or is some of my income not taxable. It's all in the software. Going through all the steps seems tedious but all checks are made but make sure that everything is done right.

    This is the seventh year in a row I have used turbo tax. Was hesitant at first. Used the return from a tax specialist the year before and compared it to Turbo Tax, they must use the same software. Have been using Turbo Tax ever since and saving $300 a year. A benefit to use it year after year is not having to reload information as it is all transferred from last years filing. Now takes me less than 45 minutes to do the taxes.

    Better than going to H&R Block

    I have been using Turbo Tax for four years now. I started using Turbo Tax when my tax return was going to be roughly $600. However, I was doing my taxes at H&R Block and they had the audacity of charging me almost $500 to do my taxes. That same year I went to Best Buy I got my Turbo Tax and did it myself. Turbo Tax walked me through every single step and my return was over $3,000! I am going to use them each year.

    I have been using Turbo tax for years now, after trying many others, and find it to be the best tax software program to use. Very easy to install and it guides you through all tax categories that may apply to your personal situation plus it has a great "Help" area to clarify any questions you may have. Make sure that the version you select will cover your tax situation.

    TurboTax has worked well for me for over 20 years. I have never experienced a problem with the software, and have successfully filed electronically since that feature first became available. I've used different versions based on my tax situations for the current year including rental property, investments, etc. It is easy to use and allows your return to be completed and filed quickly.

    Turbo Tax is the "Standard"

    I have used Turbo Tax for 6 years. Once you use the software, each subsequent year your personal data is carried forward - so you don;t need to re-enter it. This is handy and speeds up tax preparation. This year, I thought I would try the built in e-file option. An error occurred that I could not resolve, forcing me to file by snail mail. No biggee, but a bit annoying.

    i used this to prepare my taxes for 2016. several times while i was using it the program asked me if i wanted to up grade. i declined each time. basically it asks you questions to which you reply, answer the questions. it was kind of mindless. i had to research on my own to correctly answer all of the questions. i found turbo tax to be difficult. along the way

    I have been buying TurboTax to do my taxes for years, and continue to buy it each year. Last year they changed the offering to take the stock sale assistance out of Deluxe and move it to Premier. We usually don't have much stock activity and can enter it ourselves with Deluxe. I still appreciate how TT walks me through each area to make sure I don't miss anything.

    I have used TurboTax for years to do my own taxes, with no training or tax experience. I have never once had a problem or questions from the IRS. This deluxe version is perfect for people who have some deductible donations, very little stocks, and/or a low income, no frills self-employment (like lawn mowing, Uber, etc.). I highly recommend using TurboTax.

    We have lots of charitable donations - work items - medical bills... This was great. Saved us over $400 rather than going to H&R Block like we normally do and the results were the same as the past few years. It does take a little time and you need to be organized with your records. But for a simple tax return this is the way to go.

    Used Turbo tax in the past, tried the H& R Block Tax program last year, found Turbo Tax to be more user friendly. Best Buy assistant in store gave me some good feedback on several questions I asked prior to making the purchase.

    I have been using this product for about 20 years now. I love TurboTax. It makes tax reporting much easier for me year after year. It carries over information from prior years so the basic information doesn't need to be entered each year. All you have to do is verify it and move on to current info.

    This program works as advertized. Living in Texas don't need state filling. Have used this for last two years. Saves me time over doing it myself. Some years I have used the online delivery versus printing and mailing. Had one friend fail to save a printed copy and then his computer went down

    I purchased this software in order to do my taxes for the first time after purchasing a home. It was fantastic in providing my wife and I assistance through ensuring we found all the home purchase deductions that we qualified for. It is a solid program that is easy to use and very efficient.

    This product is excellent, easy to use even if you are not an accountant. I used it to do my taxes and got a refund. I will not use any other product to do my taxes except this one. I trust the calculations and have no fear to be audited for a wrong entry. Excellent price and great product!

    I have tried others in the past but have been using Turbotax for many years now. Very easy to understand and walks you through every possible thing that may apply to you. I don't but the one with the free state because the state is already free through the state website.

    I have used Turbo Tax Deluxe for the past 6 years and find it very user friendly, easy to use, and guides you through all the steps to complete an accurate tax return. The 2016' version is no exception and seems to have a more detailed help section if needed. Would highly recommend.
