1.0 out of 5 stars A completely worthless product January 2, 2003
This version is so incomplete, it is a total waste of money.
1) Data entry is tedious. For periodic contributions (such as payroll deductions or church donations) there is no way to automatically enter them into the program.
2) When adding non-cash contributions, you are reminded for every single entry if you go over the limits that require you to retain records.
3) Adding details for non-cash contributions requires you to enter data that the IRS does not, and the date field in that box is badly designed.
4) The only useful part of the program, value tables for common donated items, is woefully small.
Its' competitor, "It's Deductible" is a far better program.
Don't waste your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Program! February 9, 2003
By Kristy
It's only value is the calculation for FMV. I experiences all of the problems the other reviewer had plus more! After entering information for one of my charities, I started getting error messages for each line item. My donations for that entity went from 400.00 to over 8000.00. (It duplicated my information about 20X). The items were not available to delete, but were on the report screen. Tech support had no clue, and told me to uninstall/reinstall (typical.) After doing this, the program reattached to the old file and the problem was still there. I couldn't even delete the organization that was causing the problem (it always reappeared.) Instead, I had to begin a new file and re-enter ALL of the information for each organization.
Yuck!!!! Stay away, even if you have a free coupon. It's just not worth it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price (IF you get it for free) March 27, 2005
By Quaker
This is a clunky program with a design that feels like freeware. If you buy a companion program like TaxCut DeLuxe that let's you get DeductionPro free after rebate, then it's worth the 37 cents postage you pay to process the rebate. The program's terrible, but the pre-programmed fair market values can save you time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over $400 in Deductions! February 6, 2003
This was great, using it I ended up saving over $400 on my taxes. It only took about 2 hours to enter all the recipets I had for this past year and that was it. It kept a running total and it will even import into TaxCut, which I use every year :)
Highly recommend, I don't know why the other reviewer had so many problems.
