    Adequate tax software but a Fee Drain.

    I work as an accountant and although I do not work in individual income tax area I have substantial prior experience in this area. In my experience H&R Block TaxCut is much more user friendly from TurboTax for the less experienced tax person. Both are a convenience as they automatically carry over key items from the prior year's input including employment information, etc. They also allow you to import source documents from select employers and financial institutions, saving input time. The biggest complaint are the fees TurboTax charges you to e-file your returns. Even with the DELUXE program it charges you $29.95 for each State return transmission and extra fees for each additional State return if you need more than one. Most States have free e-file options but this defeats the purpose of e-filing through one singe source to avoid headaches, etc. Lastly, the software generate a number of error message oftentimes for local returns which it claims it can prepare for you. It never seems to calculate the local returns accurately - just go to the local tax agency websites to file those returns - it's free and accurate.

    Turbo Tax Deluxe is very easy to use

    I have been using Turbo Tax Deluxe for several years and find it especially useful reporting capital gains and losses. For example, the software allows me to easily connect to my brokerage account for the required tax data which Turbo Tax downloads and uses to complete the tax forms. This year, however, I decided to get the Federal +State version and found it was not worth the added expense. Maryland offers free filing on its website and almost all the required information comes off the Federal return. Also, Turbo Tax charges extra for online filing of the state return while the state does not.

    THE Best

    I have been using Turbo Tax for over 10 years and it is THE best tax software on the market. Point. Blank. Period. I used to use H.R. Block until they made a serious mistake that lower my refund by almost $1,100 and then they tried to renege on their promise of not charging me a fee because of THEIR mistake. I was easily able to prove they were in the wrong, and not only got my additional refund, but also my $400+ fee back. Kicked them to the curb permamently after that. I switched to Turbo Tax and haven't had any issues with them since.

    I always enjoy purchasing Turbo Tax from Best Buy. The price is right and the product is convenient. I would suggest, though, that the store keeps the product near the computer products or at the front of the store. There were none on the shelf and the sales rep didn't know where the stand was. I ended up finding them over by the small appliances. Turbo Tax & small appliances have nothing in common.

    I like that is walks you through everything w/ basic instructions and definitions. If something is odd or not done, it will let you know. It adjusts to your situations so you don't waste time filling out or reading something that won't apply to you getting a refund. I've used this in the past, and I always end up finishing/submitting in confidence that all was done and done well.

    We have used TurboTax for our tax preparation for close to 20 years. It has always worked extremely well for us, except for the year they changed things around and Deluxe didn't offer all the services in it it normally does. However, they have fixed that very bad mistake and we are back to loving TurboTax.

    I've used Turbo Tax for years now and it is the best as I have tried others. If you are a first time user, the program takes you through step by step even as a first time user and it looks for all additional credits for you. I am a repeat customer as I am comfortable with the product. Thanks Intuit.

    This is the first year that I have a computer that does not have a CD ROM drive, so I had to call TurboTax to get a download. It was a major fiasco. She gave me a download for the state only, which would not load without the federal. Spent hours with their support trying to get this resolved.

    I’ve been using TurboTax for more than 10 years. It makes tax preparation simple. It’s also a real bargain allowing you to electronically file up to 5 returns for only the purchase price. Don’t know how 2018 taxes will be impacted by tax reform but I am confident that TurboTax will be ready.

    Turbo Tax is easy to use for a beginner or an experienced tax preparer. It populates all the necessary forms for you, just by asking you specific questions. It looks for the highest refund possible and give you options along the way. I recommend it for 1040EZ, 1040A, and 1040 users.

    I was able to enter all my information quickly and finish my taxes quicker than I thought possible! Then I saved everything and went back over it the next day and between my double checking and the program double checking everything, I feel certain my taxes were submitted correctly!

    We have purchased this product every year for the last 15 years and have been able to leave the "accountant" behind. We breeze through the install, updates and subsequent tax processing with no problems. The "efiling" results in a quick turn around from the IRS with no problems.

    I’ve tried all the tax prep programs and have found TurboTax to be best! Would have rated 5 stars if customer service was easier to get ahold of. Once I finally got a human on the line she was very knowledgeable and helpful; more importantly, I was able to understand; no accent!!!

    Easy install, saves pdf copy of your taxes once your done. It does an audit of your taxes to check if you missed anything which is a nice feature. Guides you through the whole process of preparing your taxes. One of my biggest gripes is being charged again to efile state taxes.

    This will be my 7th year using Turbo Tax Deluxe edition. Its very intuitive and only takes a couple hours provided you have all your tax documentation handy or in a format easily searchable such as Quicken, etc. Highly recommend this over paying a seasonal tax service.

    I have been filing my taxes on TurboTax for the last 5 years, and this year was no different. The process is simple and they walk you step by step through all of the fields. I wish that they would include more state fillings, though, as those get expensive.

    I have used Turbotax software for 30 years. I would not use anything else. Software asks the right questions throughout the tax preparation process. Teaches you what is required and explains questions you might have in detail. Help is available if needed.

    I have used Turbo Tax to do both my Federal and State - PA - returns for well over a decade. the program is easy to use, accurate, and does not require a lot of time to complete provided one has all of the necessary input data at hand.
