1.0 out of 5 stars Possible issue in Win* but it beats H&R Block by a mile! November 28, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
Based on 30+ years of computer skills & 20+ years of using Intuit softwares, I was VERY disappointed when TurboTax 2012 refused to install on my new (3 week old) Windows 8 desktop that has been running fast & smooth. I communicated with an Intuit VP who advised me of a problem with .NET 3.5 & 4.0/4.5 that he blamed on Microsoft. Upon further investigation, I found out that Intuit has been aware of .Net issues for some time, which is why they include a folder full of special tools to try and help end users fix the .Net problems if/when they arise on your computer.

The Intuit VP advised me to uninstall .NET 3.5 and when I did, it caused a long list of problems for my computer, which then forced me to wipe my entire hard drive, reinstall Windows 8 and everything else. I also learned that many popular softwares, including Intuit's own Quicken use and insist on installing .Net 3.5 software.


UPDATE MARCH 31, 2013: The day has come to prepare my tax return. despite all the aforementioned problems with TurboTax 2012 (TT12), I decided to let it download the updates, go step-by-step and then compare the results to H&R Block 2012. TT12 had no problem importing my 2011 return data from the .tax2011 file. Using the Guide, it took me through all the possible forms of income, deductions, depreciation and carryovers. I found TT12 to be as fast & smooth as prior years and did not detect anything that seemed out of order or incorrect.

Then I ran H&R Block 2012. It had no problem importing my Intuit TurboTax 2011 data using the same .tax2011 file. However, I immediately felt like the H&R interface was kind of 'cheesy' when compared to TT12.

I finally got it working without help. I had to do a dumb thing - turnoff my firewall while it downloaded the updates and after turning the firewall back on things continued to work.
I installed this on a computer using a 64 bit, AMD cpu and running W7.
On the first installation I let it use the default settings. The when the install finished it had a box to start the program and I clicked on it. Nothing happened. I close the install and click on the icon. The starting box showed up, said yea it's taking longer then we said and then nothing. I let it go for an hour. Then I tried to close it would not close so I tried the Task Manager and it also could not close the program. So I restarted the computer, deleted the program and reinstalled. This time I chose to 'Ask me for updates. The program started and asked me to register it. After filling out the request data click the box to register and it ran and ran. After about 10 minutes I clicked to close the program and it did. I restarted the program and this time I chose not to register, so it asked if I wanted to retrive the data from last years program and I did and it didn't, just ran and ran with no results.
Up to that point I thought that maybe Intuit was having problems with their servers, but it couldn't even find things on my computer.
So I tried Intuit help and they had all kinds of answers for users mistakes but not for problems with their product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Product performs its function well January 3, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
Turbotax is easy to use and so far, it hasn't missed anything necessary to file by return. I have not submitted my return yet and if I encounter any problems I will change this review. I have used turbotax for several years and it has always met or exceeded my expectations. I have no reason to believe this year's product will be any different.

I buy this every year, but not again. I just purchased this for my MAC which is running OSX 10.6.8, which is advertised as the minimal requirement. What is NOT advertised is you need a 64 bit processor. This is what TurboTax tells you after you have purchased and find it does not run:

"With TurboTax 2012 for Mac, we made the decision to build it from the ground up as a cutting-edge 64-bit program. While this is great for speed and reliability, it means that the program will not run on computers using 32-bit processors."

Great, thanks for wasting my time.

1.0 out of 5 stars 2012 TurboTax has unexpected problems March 7, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
TurboTax Home & Business Federal + E-File + State 2012 for Mac

I have been using TurboTax for more than 12 years. Until this year I was happy to use Turbotax. However, This year's Turbotax has unexpected problems. As previously, I expected 2012-Turbotax to transfer my previous year's (2011) information. However, except for personal information, it did not transfer any other information. It did not transfer my capital loss carryover. It did not transfer my charities information. Now I am at loss as what is not being transferred. On contacting the customer chat-service, I had to wait for almost 30 minutes. And after initial trouble finding, I was suggested to start the process all over! I have not started a new one as yet, as I am not sure of the reliability of TurboTax now. This is frustrating and time consuming. I could have lost a substantial sum of money, if I were to completely rely on Turbotax. With all this problem, now how could I trust Turbotax return. I am looking for a good competitor software so Turbotax does not bask in its glory of past years.
