5.0 out of 5 stars Great program that works great with Lion January 27, 2012
By Ockham
Platform for Display:Mac Download
TurboTax 2011 Home & Office for the Mac once again delivers for those of us who have a side businesses. All-in-all, this is a great piece of software. It won't take the sting out of paying your taxes but it will make preparation a whole lot easier.

First, the tax calculations: I personally have full time employment and a side consulting business with a home office that has typical expenses and write-offs. TurboTax handles this situation perfectly. All the steps to enter write-offs and deductions are clear and the TurboTax Live Community is, as usual, a very helpful feature if you have a question. Added this year is the ability to call a tax professional to assist with anything you may have a question on. I'm guessing that this is offered for free because the vast, vast, majority of users will never need it. The step-by-step entry and TurboTax Live Community feature is probably all you will need.

Be aware that this download version of TurboTax enables you to create an unlimited number of federal returns. This is great if your doing the taxes for the family. You can also e-file up to five of those Federal returns for free but in all cases you must pay an additional fee (about $20) to e-file state returns. TurboTax can also print your return instead of e-filing so there will be no additional state e-file cost.

Next, the computer-software function: I use this on a MacBook Pro running the latest version of Mac OS X Lion. TurboTax behaves just like you would expect any mature piece of software to behave. No crashes, no corrupted saves, no problems. It just works.

If you have used TurboTax before you will have the added benefit of having most of your basic information already filled out for you after you import last years return.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for bugs March 4, 2012
By T man
Platform for Display:Mac Download
This software is full of bugs - entered data in one section only to find that information in another section was simultaneously deleted and had to be re-entered. In another section, I got to a point where the program repeatedly crashed every time I reached a certain page which prevented me from finishing at all. Several times I encountered calculation errors that required me to delete information and re-enter to get the program to calculate it correctly. Overall, the programming is of low quality and has been very frustrating. I've used TurboTax for years and never had issues like this - seems like the quality has taken a serious hit this year.

3.0 out of 5 stars FIles online but will not print January 31, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Use caution .... the downloadable version of TurboTax Home and Business will not print (but it will file online). TurboTax is working on a fix but may be days. I've spent hours on the phone with them trying to resolve. Though their representative was diligent in trying to resolve the problem, nothing worked.

3.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Tax Average February 11, 2012
By Doug
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
this year's version was not as impressive as past years. It moved smoothly through the filing process ok, but getting back to information to fine tune it or review was much more clumsy. It became frustrated because it was difficult to do what I wanted to do, instead of process the program wnated me to follow. For a novice, this would be ok, but I've been using tax software for years and did not care to be led around by the nose. It's virtue was that it is the only program I am aware of that is written for mac, it just dumbs the user down a lot. I may try something different next year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning to Older Mac Owners April 10, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
Although the system requirements for this software state that it will run on PowerPC Macs G3 and newer, as long as they have at least OS 10.5.8, you can't download the software here at Amazon because Amazon's downloader only works with Intel-based Macs. In other words, although the underlying software is compatible with PowerPC Macs, Amazon itself is not. If you have a PowerPC Mac, don't waste your money trying to get this software here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Downloads as the 2010 version April 13, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Amazon has seriously messed up here. I have now downloaded this software 3 times, and each time it says it is downloading the 2011 version, but on my computer it installs as the 2010 version. I will have to reorder from TurboTax directly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shipped before its time... February 9, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download
I've used TurboTax Home & Business for several years now and the last couple years filing my return was delayed by missing necessary forms. I've been waiting nearly a month now for a form so I can efile (Schedule K-1). I can't even print and add the form I downloaded from the IRS web site and then file by mail. At first thew program advised the form would be available Jan. 26, then Feb. 2, followed by Feb. 9 and Feb. 16. All in all, the program is relatively easy to use and makes accurate calculations. I just can't believe Intuit would ship an incomplete product. Not very sound business practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy To Use and Works Well! February 11, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Some of the reviews made me feel a little skeptical of ordering this product however, I ended up purchasing this product and I am glad that I did. This version of TurboTax for Mac was easy to use and guiding me and my wife through the easy process of filing our taxes. My wife started a new business this last year and we needed the extra help from this software and we are very pleased with the results. I did read some complaints that there was issues with 1099 forms we did not need them so I cannot give my opinion on it. This product worked well for our fairly simple taxes and would recommend it to people who need help filing a 1040 form with your own business.
