    Works well with a little patience

    This was our first experience with TurboTax. The Deluxe version worked for us. We filed schedules A, B, D, and E along with their supporting forms. We used a different company last year and were self filers exclusively before that. The patience reference was in getting used to navigating through the program. It did not take too long before we felt responsibly so. The key to filing is to have all of your paperwork from income sources organized. It helped to have a working knowledge from being self filers in the past. I would recommend using TurboTax. It certainly was both time and effort efficient for us.

    TurboTax Does It Again!

    Typical TurboTax release. The price hasn't changed since last year. If you are organized with your tax information, the product will take you an hour or two to install and complete your 2018 tax return. The only real issue to be had is the cost to e-file at the end. For the price on the box you should be efiling both your returns for free. But the whole process is easy and you can contact a specialist if you have issues.

    While its not everything I've heard about it, its an acceptable application for those that are not familiar with the tax laws. I've been filing my own returns since the 80's, and this application was more effort than just scanning the new tax code. Its just ok, not an earth shattering application, designed for those that need help and are not familiar with filling out tax forms. Big plus 5 free e-files with fed and state returns, makes up for the cost.

    Purchased for my mother

    I purchased this software for my mother, as she uses it every year. I was told that it came with a download code because her MacBook Air does not have an optical drive, nor does she have an external. I found a post in the other reviews on this page to call TurboTax to push the download through after creating an online account. She was able to get the download and did not need to purchase an external optical drive to get the job done.

    I have been using Turbo Tax for several years to do my taxes. The software is fairly easy to use. You have a choice of having the software walk you through or you, if experienced with tax preparation, you can choose what to work on and get through even faster. At the end there are return checks that assess the audit risk for your return. For additional fees, you can hire them as tax attornies should you get audited.

    TurboTax Deluxe is once again a great product. My only complaint with the product (hence the four stars) is that they lack the ability to save year over year records if they have been e-filed previously. I lost use of a hard drive that had the previous year's return on it, and was unable to repopulate a number of accounts without manually entering them. That's my only complaint. Everything else was top-notch.

    I have used TurboTax for years. It guides you through everything to file your tax returns accurately. The only downside is the cost of the software if you need to purchase anything beyond the basic program and if you have to file in more than one state. Plus, if you want to e-file any state returns, there's an extra cost for that. Federal e-files are free.

    I have used TurboTax for over 10 years. The process is very easy because it transfers from one year to the next, and the program guides you through the entire filing from start to finish. I was disappointed this year. In the past I've always had one free state electronic filing, this year it did not come with that. There was a free state download, but not a free file.

    I have been using Turbo tax for a few years now and I can't believe I used to pay hundreds of dollars to have someone else do this. The only problem I have is that you can't e-file with a locality through this software, so you either have to print and mail or do it directly through the locality web site. Still recommend to anyone

    The software was easy to download. It had several updates after downloading. Easy to use. I must have misunderstood the box because I had to pay an additional fee to do my state. I was under the impression that 1 state return was free. I didn’t file them at the same time so maybe that was why I had to pay. I’ll probably purchase again next year.

    turbo tax is easy to use for the first time tax payer or a veteran. The program walks you thru or lets you go it alone and will alert you for missing info and or info that does not make sense. It will also give you your tax info from previous years turbo tax was used. It makes filling taxes quick, simple and assuring.

    I have been using turbo tax for years now. The software is easy to use and I like that it imports past information forward saving some time. That being said I always have an account look over the return and it seem like every year they are still able to correct the return and reduce the overall tax liability.

    I've been using Turbotax for over 10 years and find in very easy to use. I flip from forms mode to Q+A to cross check my tax forms just to make sure everything is complete. The one thing that bugs me is that I can't pay for online state submission with my original purchase.

    While I think that TurboTax is generally overpriced, I use it because it does a good job if you ask it to walk you thru step by step. I have used tax software made by other companies and didn't find them as easy to use. For simple returns, TurboTax offers free online versions.

    I have used TurboTax to do my taxes for many years. This year's incarnation is as good as ever. My only complaint is that some of the time it is hard to understand some of the tax issues, it can be confusing, but TurboTax usually does a good job explaining things.

    I have used Turbo Tax to do my taxes for many years but something seemed off this year. Perhaps it was the magnitude of the tax law changes but it just didn't seem as useful / insightful as in the past. As always, I resent having to pay to efile.

    Makes tax time a little easier, especially if you used TurboTax the prior year. The import feature is wonderful. Does have ways to get where you need to more quickly if you make time to explore the features. TurboTax should have a demo video in the app.

    Great product! Really shows you any answer to questions, whether it's deductions or dependents. Only negative, and this has happened every year that we've filed with TurboTax, the confirmation and payment for state taxes and just e-filing always has a serious lag.

    My taxes are just barely complicated enough to make most of the free services either unavailable to me or difficult to use. It’s a little disappointing that there are still additional filing charges beyond the upfront cost.

    Nothing super special - it gets the job done and saves you a couple hundred dollars instead of going to H&R Block or one of those places. That is, if you're itemizing. Young, single people can find free options that will do the trick.
