Using TaxCut was a decent experience. The program itself is easy to use and negotiate. Jumping back and forth in the return was a fairly simple process. There were significant improvements over the previous year's version. Which is always a welcome thing.
I was able to quickly import my tax info from the previous year's TurboTax files without any problem. It is also easy to import last year's TaxCut data (just in case you were wondering). The user interface is easily understandable. Overall, TaxCut seems to be a step or two behind TurboTax. But the end results are the same, a tax refund which more than pays for the program. And those steps behind are small steps.
Keep in mind that the "free" state version (which you have to pay for and get reimbursed), and any rebates, require that you send in receipts within 30 days of the purchase. If you don't then you'll not be getting any rebates or reimbursements.
I'm an accountant and CPA and found that TaxCut covered all of the complex tax situations that I encountered. I had used Turbotax in the prior year and found the import of last years information very quick and easy. However, it did not carry over the depreciable basis or depreciation method for my depreciable assets.
I did my return in pieces, entering info as I recieved it, so I did not go through the interview in a step by step fashion. This created some bumps when trying to go back and make sure I had all data complete. Taxcut did have a nice graphic to show completed data versus unentered data, but there was no programmed check to make sure that all information was in.
The only real area that I encountered a possible tax error was in the state sale tax deduction. First of all, it did not make it clear that I could take sales tax as a deduction. It should make that very clear for states that have sales tax in place of a state income tax. When I finally found the input screen it asked for my local tax rate. When I put in the rate, my deduction was extremely high. I went back to the calculation page and realized it already had the statewide rate, but just wanted the additional locality rate on top of that. That was confusing and could have created an error if I had not investigated. And if I did not deal with tax rates in my day to day job, I may have not input the correct rate.
The only other issue I had was with printing a draft return. They should give you the option of printing a return to review before e-filing. Trying to get the pages I wanted to print was somewhat of a pain.Read more ›
However, I have several issues, starting with the most serious. When I went to electronically sign the form prior to e-filing it, the instructions said that the IRS will not accept the e-filing unless you enter your previous year's adjusted gross income exactly. Last year I didn't round on my tax form, and the TaxCut software does, so there was no way I could enter last year's adjusted gross income exactly. I decided to try to e-file anyway, hoping the rounded version is close enough.
Prior to filing, I printed the form and reviewed it carefully --and it's a good thing I did, because after I filed, I could not view my form again. I can see a report of what I entered, but when I try to view the finished form using the software, I get a message box asking me if I want to save the existing form -- every time. The finished form is nowhere to be seen -- and cannot be accessed by either of the methods the Help says to use to view your finished return.
I clicked Customer Service (which took me to H&R Block's Web site). I tried to create an e-mail using the Customer Service form, but when I chose the TaxCut option button so my question could be directed to the right people, I couldn't enter my name, address, or telephone number -- only my e-mail address. When I tried clicking Next, it took me back to the starting page -- every time.
I won't know until tomorrow about the status of my e-filing. I can't see my return, so I have no idea whether an actual return was filed, even though I was charged $15.95.Read more ›
