I have used Turbo Tax for years. Two or three years ago I began using their transfer function to transfer 1099MISC information from the prior year to the current year, so that all one needed to do was fill in the correct dollar amount and not have to retype all the names and addresses. It worked fine in prior years, just as you could transfer your tax information for the 1040 from the prior year.

BUYER BEWARE!!

This transfer function DOES NOT WORK in the 2011 iteration of Turbo Tax Home & Business 2011. In its infinite wisdom, Intuit moved this transfer scenario from a simple file to file transfer and
put it instead, on line. It does not work. I am unable to transfer the 150 or so 1099MISC forms from 2010 to 2011 AND no one at Intuit/Turbo Tax seemed to know it doesn't work. I lost three
hours on line and then on the phone trying to get this function to work, speaking with tech specialists at Turbo Tax.

All you learn in the program itself, when you try to make the transfer USING THE FILE TYPE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO USE, is the infuriating message "Houston, we have a problem ... but don't worry we are not in outer space."

Well guess what, you folks at Intuit are indeed in outer space if you think it is acceptable to not have this function working as of 1/25/11 just six days before the IRS deadline to send the
1099MISC forms to their recipients.

THIS IS A DISASTER.

Do not buy Turbo Tax Home & Business if you need to transfer your 1099MISC information from 2010 to 2011.

Shame on you Intuit.

1.0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF January 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
If your looking to start your tax return immediately; don't count on it. I received several error messages that would not allow me to download the software I have already paid for! It is very inconvenient that I had to write a lengthly email to the company regarding "the fix" that did not "work". I will never buy turbotax again.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - Won't Install on XP64 Machines February 15, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have used Turbo Tax for probably 15 years now, maybe more. I have never had a problem with it. I always used whatever version had schedule C for my home business in it, which is now the Home & Business version. I was just absolutely disgusted to find (AFTER I purchased this product) that 2011 Turbo Tax Home & Business WILL NOT INSTALL ON WINDOWS XP 64-BIT!!! In order to have the *privilege* of continuing to work with it, I will have to either create a virtual machine on this computer with XP SP3 on it (thank God I kept those discs) or just use someone else's computer. Both are equal inconveniences to me. I own the 2011 Quicken Home & Business product, which is supposed to work with Turbo Tax--and THAT product DOES work on Windows XP 64-Bit. That fact makes the lack of XP64 compatibility with 2011 Turbo Tax just plain idiotic, but the huge FAILURE to clearly warn against this new incompatibility is tantamount to negligent, in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Installs 2010 Version February 4, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased this, obviously, to create & file my 2011 tax return. When I download the software, it says that it is downloading 2011. However, when it begins to install, it installs the 2010 program, which I obviously DON'T need! I have attempted to send 2 e-mails to Amazon about this problem and their screen claimed that I would receive a reply within 12 hours. 36 hours later and no response and no software. This is the biggest waste of time & money I've ever had from Amazon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing has been fixed January 31, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I just wanted to warn everyone that as of 9:41 a.m. CST on January 31, 2012 nothing has been fixed on the 1099 forms including the insipid "Houston we have a problem..." error message despite the assurances of the VP at Intuit on some of the other comments.

As a side comment you may experience more problems using Firefox as your browser going through the 1099 filing that you might using IE or Chrome. At one point it even recommended that I use Chrome for in-browser PDF support although that part worked fine with Firefox. As I was having trouble entering new 1099's I got the impression that the software was having browser issues. I switched to IE and was able to complete my work without any further trouble.

I still will not change my ratings though. This whole thing was poorly thought out by Intuit. The website is extremely slow and the in-browser Java scripts that run on the page have a hard time carrying out their tasks for instance deciding if you have an EIN or SS# and whether you have a company or an individual that you are sending a 1099 for.

2.0 out of 5 stars not a fan of cloud computing February 1, 2012
By Kevin
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
When I buy a piece of software, I expect I'm "leasing" code to run on my computer. The business part of this software only provides a link to their online W2 software, though previous years were not done this way. They try to lead you to believe that filing online is now required, which is not true, but I'm sure it makes their code development eaiser. Some like storing their data in the cloud, but I'm not one of them; I want my files on my computer. Very disappointed with this years business part; I've not yet used the home tax part.

1.0 out of 5 stars Catch-22 Runaround at Its Worst March 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This software for the 2011 version will not download properly if there is a 2010 version already on the computer, so it asks that the 2010 version be uninstalled before proceeding with the 2011 version. Unfortunately, all that does is eventually reinstall the 2010 version.

Contacted Amazon customer service three times and was told each time that it was simply necessary to delete the 2010 version per the accompanying instructions. Following the instructions leads to one of two thoroughly unsatisfying results: either a) the 2010 version is installed again (see first paragraph)or b) the referenced publisher instructions include pathways for deleting named files that cannot be found on the computer. And, by the way, Amazon customer service will emphasize that this really is the publisher's problem and they are just passing the instructions along (paragraph one again).

I've been a Turbo Tax customer for many years. Not anymore.

This is the first time I've ever written an on-line product review. But, to paraphrase the old saying, "an unhappy customer will tell all of their friends about a bad experience".

Tell your friends.
