1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!!! April 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This product doesn't include the STATE portion. TurboTax wants to charge me an addition 45 dollars to submit for ONE state.

DO NOT PURCHASE if you live in a state where you pay income tax. USELESS for one-stop taxing. Be sure to get one that does include the state. For a whopping 5 bucks more .... NOT 45.

PAY ATTENTION.

I know its my fault, but I didn't realize this didn't include my state taxes also. I am really upset that my state is going to cost as much as what I paid for this version. They do have TurboTax Deluxe Federal+ State for a few dollars more. Just know that the state is not included in this download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Turbo Tax - Again February 25, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have been using Turbo Tax Deluxe for several years. It loads and operates just fine for me and since I live in Texas I don't require a state tax return and Turbo Tax has a version with no state tax. Fair price, consistent quality, familiar operation. I don't care for the constant upsell (thus one star removed), but that is Intuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop & Resume Anytime January 13, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
I switched to TurboTax Deluxe for 2010 return. It was a huge improvement over previously used software. Purchased same software for 2011; now ordering for 2012. Very satisfied. I do however also consult the J. K. Lasser pub, "Your Income Tax 20XX" for unusual situations.

If you have relatively simple taxes, and if you pay an accountant to do them, you will save a bundle with turbo tax. If you are not good with a computer and/or your taxes are complex, better stick with your accountant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fine Print March 18, 2013
By BC
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Did not read fine print and did not note the state was not included until got to it online.I did call Amazon and they said they would credit my account for this and I could place new order for the other version that included state in it. Just wish Turbo tax had not changed Deluxe version as in past always included state.
