"When finalizing my taxes, turbo tax informed me that I had not entered any amounts on line 1 on my W-2 (my company does ot allow importing of W-2 data). I entered the amount and foolishly sent the taxes with our previewing the returns. Turbo Tax then doubled the amount on line 1 of my w-2, so needless to say I had to file amended returns. Not very happy and would seek a refund from Turbo Tax if there were any way you could actually talk to a person at this company. It would have been cheaper and a lot less hassel for me just to have gone to an accountant. If any one at Turbo Tax actually reads this I am wating for my money back or at least some feedabck from them!!!!"
"Have big problem with calculations of depreciations on rental property. Alternative methods and conventions are not available. Really resulted in an overstatement of depreciation which I did not want."
"First time we used Premier, liked the additional info and steps for rental property."
"I really like Turbo Tax. I was a great guide in helping me find deductions and provided lots of additional information about items that I am not savvy about by use of their pop up info dialog boxes.
The one area that I found a problem was at the end when the program did an error check. It did not recognize that I somehow entered and then re-entered the name of a ESPP sale (Company name) twice but the only difference was that I used 2 spaces after the company name then put INC. >>> ( CORINTHIAN COLLEGES, INC. was the first one then CORINTIAN COLLEGES, INC was the second one. See the difference? That was my fault but I because I thought maybe the program somehow erased, or I erased the info originally put in, I inputted all the lot amounts, date of offering, purchase price, etc. 36 entries in all.
No complaints. I have learned alot with this program.
It was a life saver with the IRA recharacterization and IRA conversions I had."
"For the novice tax filer, the program walks you through the entire return; it is a learning experience that helps optimize you chances of filing an accurate return. It is clear and easy to use. It is very unlikely that I would I would successfully complete filing my return in the within the three hours it takes me to do it using this program. I am sure others complete it in even less time. Every aspect of the program has been carefully crafted to minimize you effort and chances of making errors. The option to file on line is an added bounous even though it cost an extra $19.00+ dollars to file the state tax form."
"I've used TT for about 5 years and this year's edition is better than ever.
Except: For the first time I used the state file form for my son who lives in a state that has an income tax. So I was surprised that "one free state" meant that TT would do the state form, but charge $20 to e-file it. $10 seems more reasonable, but even better would be "One free state return - form and e-file." I'll look for that next year from TT or a competitor."
"My favorite feature: automatic downloading of investment information from various investment websites. This feature alone saved me hours of menial work."
"I had to do taxes for a relative who died last year. Her Income, deductions, and expenses were all very different from mine. TurboTax walked me through it and let me stop when I needed to gather more information. thanks for all the help!!"
