Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Let me start off this review with a few items that I think will be useful to others
- This is the edition you want if you're filing your tax return in 2014 (because you're filing for the year 2013)
- You want to edition if you have business activity that you report on a schedule C (this activity flows into your personal return)
- You do not want this edition if you're trying to file a return for a corporation (C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC taxed as a corp) because you need to file a business return and then your own personal return. Look for TurboTax Business (or hire a CPA).
- You don't want this edition if you have a partnership where you need to issue K-1s. Look for TurboTax Business (or hire a CPA).

Now, I'm making this review based off of my initial time spent with the software since I just received it and wanted to get started on a few items I knew wouldn't be changing. There are always updates that come later to the software so I can't yet pass judgment on those.

If you've used TurboTax previously then this version isn't anything new to you. The user interface looks almost identical to last year and I'm glad. I think they've done a very good job of working out the kinks to make the interface intuitive and easy to use. There's no reason to change a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had local CPA review 2012 taxes done with Turbo Tax December 28, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
Had a local, well-respected, established CPA firm review my personal and small business 2012 taxes done on Turbo Tax Home and Business , (last year's edition). They could not find a single additional deduction or mistake I had made with TT's help. Top that with the fact that I started a small business in 2012, so I had the start-up costs and the special depreciation schedules, (for equipment like electronics that I already owned, but now have to depreciate) and deductions that go with it.

I have been using TT for over a decade for personal taxes, but was a bit uneasy about filing my schedule c. I was worried I would miss deductions and cost myself money. So last summer, I took copies of everything, paid over a $120 for the review, just to be told, good job. We will charge at least twice as much for the same return. They use Intuit software.

On the other hand, it is reassuring to know it is done well. Also a CPA would go with you or for you to an audit, which with some small business is a serious concern.

I will buy TT again this year. Simply put, CPA cannot do a better job, I still have to get all the paperwork together for them, I can input it into the computer on my time and not have to wait around for CPA to get to it. And if I am worried about audit, I can take spend like $20 and buy TT audit protection plan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't do taxes without it. December 6, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
I've been using TurboTax for many, many years and have never had a problem. It is easy to use, with clear instructions. Don't do taxes without it. Depending on my situation, I have used several versions. The basic or what they call the deluxe will do for most anyone who has fairly straight-forward tax situations. They will still handle simple stock trades and capital gains situations, as well as simple business situations. It just requires you to be more involved and knowledgeable instead of asking you all their questions and then doing the work for you.

In years where I have traded a lot of investments or stocks, and my business situation remains simple, I have upgraded to their Premier product. It walks you through all the purchases and sales, to make sure you are not getting hosed on the taxes. This year, my business got more complicated so I upgraded to the Home and Business product to handle it. If you look at the TurboTax comparison sheet, you will see this is the normal transition decision. Deluxe gives more detail and support about typical personal tax situations. Premier has everything Deluxe has, but it adds detailed support for investments. Home and Business has everything Premier does, but adds specific support for small business situations on Schedule C.

If you are totally confused by taxes and the whole process, but you have fairly straight-forward needs, you can turn to H&R Block or a similar company. If you have investments, complex business situations, or major life events (deaths, inheritance) I would suggest using an accountant. On the other hand, if you have a reasonable understanding of the tax process, business rules, and such, TurboTax can get the job done as well as an accountant at a much lower price. I used an accountant for many years and a couple of years before I decided to drop him, I used TurboTax and compared the results. They came out EXACTLY the same, so I dropped the accountant about 15 years ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Tax Has A Problem for 2013 January 5, 2014
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
I have been using Turbo Tax for 15 years. It has always been a great program, and I'd never use anything else. It had always installed well, and ran perfectly. No Complaints whatsoever. Just bought 2013, and tried to install it. And I do mean TRIED.

OOOOPS.... It wouldn't install. It gave me an error code 1603 Windows Installation Error. The program proceeded to try and fix itself by downloading a new version of Microsoft's NET Framework 4.0 (I guess they assumed that was the problem). But, NO LUCK. The re-install failed following the downlad, and resulted in the same error code failure.

I am currently running Windows XP with Service Pack 3, (which meets TTax requirements), and it wouldn't install. After visiting Microsoft's website, I confirmed that my XP is fully Upgraded, and I downloaded a New Copy of NET Framework 4.0, and again - NO LUCK. I visited Turbo Tax website regarding the problem, and it appears that quite a number of folks are having a problem with the 1603 Error code popping up and a Failed install. Many customers, like myself, have tried to "FIX" the problem following TT suggestions, with NO LUCK. Some folks using Windows 7, have also reported similar problems and results.

Turbo Tax blames the customer, and his computer. So, no help there. Given that I have never had a problem in 15 years with ANY Turbo Tax software, I kind of doubt its all of the sudden my fault. And, its all of the sudden my computer, which I have used for the past many years of TTax in 2012, 2011, 2010, etc.

Writing software is not an easy task, and "backward compatibility" is always an issue. But, why in the world would Turbo Tax play around with perfection, and cause problems for so many folks.

Bob Meighan, VP TurboTax saysJanuary 7, 2014
Raymond... As our agents told you, we are working with Microsoft on Error 1603, which is a Microsoft issue. It is well documented and has been around for many years. For those who are affected by this, it is a challenging issue to fix programmatically. We cannot fix it ourselves and that is why we are working with Microsoft on a fix. As you also note, when our installer (which is a Microsoft installer) detects a corrupt .net framework, we try to fix it. It's hit or miss whether it can be fixed. Nevertheless, we are working diligently across companies to fix this issue without regard to whose problem it is because at the end of the day it affects our customers.

By the way, this is not a common issue. It is very uncommon, but does seem to affect XP users more than others.
