I just went to the TurboTax site and they advise that they have dropped the $9.95 addition charge for each additional return. They claim an update to the program will come out on Dec. 20 to remove the screen that advised of the charge.

You may not need this expensive version of TurboTax if you're buying it primarily because you also have self-employment income (1099-MISC). I realize TT has recommended this but they've recanted and told me that the 2008 Deluxe version will be every bit as capable as the 2007 Deluxe version was in guiding us through the Schedule C, SE and other self employment forms.

Here's the dialogue:

TurboTax has just apologized to me.

TurboTax support has been extremely responsive in calling me back regarding my complaint to them about how badly they're confusing people on which TT product to buy.

I'd like you to read my question to them and then their answer. The bottom line is that TTDeluxe 2008 is every bit as comprehensive (and more) as the TTDeluxe 2007 product. There are no takeaways and no real reason for a Schedule D user to have to buy the Premiere version and no significant reason why a self-employed person MUST buy the Home/Business version. He knew their company screwed up and caused a public relations nightmare. Apparently the "recommended" upgrade products have expanded guidance and help for the uninitiated TT user.

If this 2nd review of mine is not accepted by Amazon, I will try to post it to the Premiere version and the Home/Business version and also as a comment to my 1st review here.

My question:

Considerable confusion exists as to whether a person with self employed income absolutely needs to buy the considerably more expensive Home/Business version. Your website indicates that the Deluxe version "includes" forms Sched. C, SE etc. and yet you say we should buy the more expensive program. This doesn't make sense.

TurboTax Home & Business Federal + State 2007 [OLD VERSION]TurboTax Deluxe Federal + State + eFile 2008TurboTax Home & Business Federal + State + eFile 2008
I have just cancelled my automatic subscription to Turbo Tax Home and Business because of the HUGE, unreasonable and undisclosed increases to use the 2008 product. I have used TT for many, many years and in the last several, used it to do my two daughters' returns as well. In 2008, however, without ANY PRIOR DISCLOSURE to consumers, Intuit has ripped us all off by charging us $9.95 for any additional family member returns, whether we use E-file or not. This is ON TOP of the roughly 30% increase from last years product, when you could prepare and print out up to FIVE family members' returns at no additional charge. This was the last straw. I will NEVER use Turbo Tax or any Intuit product again, EVER. I highly recommend everyone to search for a tax software program that can import last years TT returns (such as Tax Cut, etc.) or look for a free on-line program. I've had it with Intuit's outrageous increases and rip-offs. They have just lost this long-time customer. Forever.

It is nice to see that Intuit is listening to their customers. They have revised their pricing structure to include 5 federal returns and e-files with each TurboTax product. Turbo Tax is still the best way to go if you are filing yourself, but I wasn't going to buy it until they revised their pricing structure. Thanks for listening Intuit.

I've been buying Turbotax products for years, based on Turbotax's promise to pay any interest or penalty charges caused by any errors that its software makes when it calculates your return. Boy, was I shocked to learn that -- in practice -- Turbotax makes you jump through so many hoops (including providing them with an upload of the original, many years-old, computer data file or ENTIRELY redoing that year's tax return using new software that they provide) -- that it may be virtually impossible to get Turbotax to make good on its promise.

This year I was assessed an interest charge by my state because of a mistake that Turbotax made in my 2005 state tax return. The printed copies of my tax return clearly showed that an error had been made by Turbotax. But -- so far -- after I spent hours providing Turbotax with everything they required but was unable to re-create the exact same error on the (corrected?) software that Turbotax re-sent to me (I no longer had a copy of the original software), Turbotax hasn't reimbursed me a cent.

So much for their advertised promise of guaranteed accuracy. This seems to be just another case of consumer fraud.

If anyone else has had difficulty in collecting on Turbotax's promise to pay interest and penalties in case of errors on their part, please let me know. Maybe we can file a class action under deceptive/unfair consumer practive law.

Turbo Thief"
I have been a TT user for 15 years and a beta tester several times. The product itself is pretty good but the greed at Intuit is unbearable. In 2005, TT eliminated the free e-file coupon and raised the price. Now in 2008, TT again raises the price, charges for 1 e-file (weather you use it or not) and limits the number of returns to only 1. At half the current price, the product would be expensive. Now the cost is outright obscene. I couldn't possibly recommend TurboTax anymore.

I have read all the negative recommendations and blog posts here on Amazon and think "Larry" sums them all up.. "A name change is in order for this product now. It should be called 'Turbo-Thievery'."
