4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Edition is just fine January 4, 2011
By Mike F
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
I've been using Turbo Tax for 10+ years and once I fell for the old bait-and-switch when I thought the 'Deluxe' version was worth the extra bucks. Wrong. The Basic version does everything most taxpayers need, and does it quite well, even if you have a mortgage and itemize deductions. Don't think you need to upgrade if you have a few complexities to your return or you're not using 1040EZ. That's especially true if you live in a state without state income tax (thank you Texas). Can't speak for rental properties or other complicated examples, but paying extra so someone can tell me what my donated pair of shoes is worth just isn't worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Tax Basic January 14, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Have used Turbo Tax since...forever. Never disappointed. My taxes are rather complex as I have a small corporation, as well as personal taxes. TTax takes care of all of the right forms. (it does not do the corporate tax forms, but it makes sure I have the right ones in hand before I can proceed to filing)

I'm not sure why anyone would want to spend the extra money for Deluxe or Premier. The Basic version does everything I need and more.

Truth be known, many CPA's use Turbo Tax, or a privatized version of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for 90% of Taxpayers March 25, 2011
By EGT
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
I am a certified AARP TaxAide volunteer and do tax returns for senior citizens with the TaxWise program used by the IRS. I also do the taxes for my two brothers-in-law, both of whom have small business income. For them I use TurboTax Basic every year. I know there are more advanced (and expensive) versions of the program, but frankly, Basic is all that 90% of us need. It even will do K-1 forms for those of us who have income from limited partnerships. I should note that Turbotax Basic does not include state tax forms. However, in my state (Illinois) the free on-line E-File return takes only about 15 minutes to complete. Of course, if you would like more bells and whistles, that's fine, too, for the extra price.

4.0 out of 5 stars As Much as I hate taxes December 31, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
As much as I hate taxes, we all, unfortunately have to deal with this pain on an annual basis at a minimum. Turbo Tax makes it easier. I've used it for several years and have found it be a good product, easy to use, etc.

1.0 out of 5 stars TurboTax Free Edition: Unethical Bait & Switch February 20, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Perhaps TurboTax Basic will suit your needs, but be aware that TurboTax/Intuit Software operate using an unethical bait-and-switch technique. I just spent 3 hours filling in online forms using the "TurboTax Free Edition." The free edition claims to allow free federal returns, however the software leads you directly into the state return. When you have finished entering your info, you must pay $27.95. If you do not, you cannot see or print your federal return. There appears to be no way to remove the state return data and thereby avoid the cost.

So... 3 hours wasted. For me, it's back to the pencil and paper method -- the only truly FREE way to do your taxes.

Buyer beware.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Support and Lost files January 14, 2011
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
I downloaded TurboTax 2010 Basic onto my MACBook Pro. I successfully transferred my 2009 data into it. I worked on it for hours and saved the file. When I went back to work on 2010, I clicked "continue return where you left off". Nothing happened so I clicked on "find this file". My file was in documents under tax return 10.tax2010. But it was grayed out and wouldn't open. I spent hours in chat sessions beginning on Dec. 15. During my last session on Jan. 3, I was told that tech support was still working on the problem and would report when they had an answer. In the meantime, I can't work on my tax return without starting over! Hours wasted and I don't know whether the problem will reoccur if I try it again! After several years working with Turbo Tax, I will be looking for a different product!

Having used Turbo-tax for 10 years I am very disappointed at this year's version. They are so busy selling you their IRA's and tax-filing methods while I am constantly stuck at a point and unable to progress through the process. If there only was a way to file using the 08 version.
