3.0 out of 5 stars Not Ready Yet - Wait December 2, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
After downloading and installing on my Mac, TurboTax attempts to update itself (as it should), saying there are 3 updates. The update process fails, and after 3 tries tells you to go to TurboTax's web site and do the update manually. There is even a place to register there and they will notify you when it is fixed. I suggest waiting until this update process is fixed, it is very annoying at present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great -- easy to download and use January 16, 2012
By kentsum
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend 1) TurboTax - 2) Bought from Amazon - 3) Using the download version.

This is my second year to use TurboTax. It's so easy. They walk you through the process, asking simple, clear questions. All you must do is have your W2's and other documentation ready to answer the questions. You can stop whenever you wish, and come back later. You can go back and redo each section as often as you wish. You can see how much your return will be from Fed and State - at any time, based upon the info you've entered thus far. And e-filing is quick and easy (or at least, it was last year; haven't yet taken that step.)

The download-installation-update process worked flawlessly. I use Mac OS 10.6.8. I chose to download from Amazon, because I know I can always return to Amazon and re-download TurboTax if something happens to my computer. Also, I didn't have to wait for a CD to arrive. And I'm still not eager to use the cloud/web version which keeps everything on the TurboTax server instead of on my own computer. (Yeah, I know that Big Brother -- "they" -- already know about and see everything we do. I just feel better making it a fraction more difficult for them.)

There may be other good products out there, but I'm sticking with what I know works well: TurboTax.

3.0 out of 5 stars Installed and Updated Successfully December 20, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I'd been watching the price of this for a while - sometimes $49, sometimes $44, then suddenly as I'm cooking dinner it's $42, so I think I'll get that later, and an hour later it's $49. But 2 hours after that it's $42 again - what's up with this random pricing Amazon?????

In any case I got it for $41.94, downloaded and installed it no problems.

Started it up, filled in Registration details and it said there were 3 updates. They applied - somewhat slowly as the text on the dialog windows indicates, but you'd think in 2011 that we wouldn't have to deal with application windows that pop up and can't be moved to the back even when the application is hidden. The two windows stay on top of whatever app you switch to. What's up with that Intuit?????

Restarted after updates were applied and had to register again??????

Did that and it said I was up to date. Stepping through I get to State download, but that's not going to be ready until at least 3 Jan 2012.

3.0 out of 5 stars Updates worked for me December 17, 2011
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased and downloaded TurboTax Deluxe 2011 for Mac today, and the 3 updates were successfully applied. I'm running OS 10.7.2 (Lion). So maybe this bug has been fixed, or maybe it only affects some customers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crashes after importing last year's file January 26, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
This is not ready for prime time. It crashes when it transfers the last year's return. It's not a corrupt file, since TT2010 reads it fine. If I need to start over, why should I be loyal to TT? Please fix this.

5.0 out of 5 stars rough start .. but gotta love the convenience! January 22, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
... I used this on my iMac Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) system ... imports of my prior year's (2010) returns didn't work at all until I (a) installed Turbotax 2010 again from my backup CD to my HDD, (2) applied the 4 updates from the time I submitted my return in April, 2010, and (3) did a save of the 2010 tax file. After I did this, the 2010 data transfer completed successfully, and I picked up where I left off. ... haven't yet got to see if it got to propagating my capital losses from previous years yet, but at least I don't need to key in my SSNs, donation destinations, etc over again. Seems to work as well as the 2010 version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible customer support January 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Have used TurboTax for years, this year i get to the end and the program locks up when it gets to complete purchase by phone. After getting back to the screen there is a help with purchase link which has a number to call. After being put on hold for 20 minutes. I get the dumbest person i have ever talked to who puts me on hold so she can ask for help; after 15 more minutes of hold they hang up. I call back and the next person wants my logon and account information from 2008! You have to be kidding me! I finally convince the sales person to give me her supervisor, he at least understands the issue and transfers me to the E-Filing department. That is where I wait now in another line until it auto hung up on me! Pretty sure English was a second language for most help. I will not be using this again, will be asking Amazon for a refund and going elsewhere....

3.0 out of 5 stars Mac owners be prepared for a bit of a hassle. February 17, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I bought the full download version of Turbotax Deluxe for Mac, including state, did one return and now it won't let me do another, in spite of advertising unlimited returns. No one from Intuit to chat with, the "Help" button is anything but as it takes you through a never-ending loop and I cannot contact a live person. I even tried deleting the program and re-downloading a fresh copy, but although Amazon will allow you to download again, the program picks up on the existing return and goes right back to preventing any new ones.

Update: I eventually got in touch with a live person at Turbotax who stayed with me for almost two (yes, two!) hours clearing the old program and downloading a fresh one direct from Intuit. She was a marvel. The trick with a Mac, apparently, is to save any returns to a CD/DVD. If you save it to your hard drive, every time you reopen the program it will link to the existing return and not allow you to start a new one. Save to a disc, and when you are done close and then reopen the program. You should then see the start page and you can begin a new return. Kind of a hassle, but I think it has more to do with the Mac than with the program itself. I'm hoping Intuit will address this issue in future releases.

It is still a good tax preparation program.
