2.0 out of 5 stars Unreilable product, shady pricing structure. December 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
--NOTE: Make sure to read my latest update at the bottom of the review before purchasing--
I've been using Turbo Tax for at least 10 years now. I used TaxCut one year because it was a little cheaper. I got audited that year (TaxCut didn't check an appropriate box, so I sent a letter to the IRS explaining that, and they dropped the audit, but it was still a major pain). It is also important to note that if you have a complicated tax year, you may be better off doing the taxes yourself or paying someone to do it. Two years ago, there was a bug where you couldn't take both the earned income credit and one of the college education credits- after speaking with customer service, and then getting put in contact with one of their engineers who barley spoke English, I realized that you really can't trust any kind of tax software for unusual or complex tax situations. I sent them screenshots, and detailed explanations of how to recreate the bug, and they still claimed everything was fine (even though entering the exact same information into different tax preparation software resulted in a refund that was thousands of dollars more). The next year, the bug was fixed, so I guess they finally found it. I'm guessing some people didn't notice and lost a lot of money over that bug though. Again, don't trust any software for anything that seems unusual or complex.

If you had a basic year, then TurboTax is great. The interface continues to get better every year- they were ahead of their competitors for a long while, their competitors have caught up some, but TurboTax still has the best interface. There are currently some annoying things where it says "click here to see more details" about a particular tax item, and it brings you to an error message on their website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Don't start your taxes without this. November 17, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
***Note: Several readers have made ** clear, important** comments regarding this review of mine. After I read those comments, I made a few changes in the text of this review and **added some text** at the end. Please read this review again and especially, read the valuable comments that follow. Perstare. ***

This review is intended mainly to benefit those taxpayers who are considering the purchase of Turbo Tax for the first time. However, if you have used Turbo Tax before, your comments and criticisms of this review would benefit the newcomers.

I recommend Turbo Tax. I've been using it for roughly 20 years. I can't imagine how I could "do my taxes" without this excellent **computer assist.**

( Note: I use Turbo Tax only as a **computer assist.** I use other resources if I need exact detail/precision in tax law and in my tax preparation. What other resources? Please see my review of the publication, "Lasser's - Your Income Tax 2013 for Preparing Your 2012 Tax Return" for a description of Lasser's and other resources for tax information.)

I've never had to try out any of Turbo Tax's competitors. (I have read criticisms of Turbo Tax and I've read praise for other tax-assist programs. I haven't read any opinions either way that would make me switch.)

If you're going to use Turbo Tax for the first time (and especially if you are using computer-assisted tax preparation for the first time), start well before the filing deadline - buy it and install it before the end of the calendar year! (For example, Amazon has Turbo Tax 2012 for tax year 2012 available around Thanksgiving 2012.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning to Mac Users! January 7, 2013
By Meriden
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
If and when you purchase tax software for this year's income tax season, please note that Intuit has changed its Macintosh hardware requirements without saying so anywhere on the Turbotax package. As I have done for many years, I purchased a copy of Turbotax for use on my dual core iMac, which is running OS 10.6.8. The package states that it will run on this OS version, and says nothing else about Mac hardware. Only after installing the program and getting an error message that this new version of Turbotax does not run on my not so venerable computer, was I directed to the Turbotax website. It took a bit of drilling down through the support pages before I was told that Intuit has rewritten the Turbotax code to only run on 64-bit processors, and will not run on lowly 32-bit processors such as the dual core on my machine.
What makes this even more annoying is that most retailers will not take the Turbotax back, because the package was opened. Intuit says it will give refunds, but only after the purchaser downloads a special form and ships the box back to the company, presumably at the purchaser's own cost.

I ordered TurboTax 2012 as soon as it was available. Being over 65 I am aware of several limits which can affect taxes and costs. Using TurboTax helps me make the best use of my money. Allowing my income to be just a few dollars above certain limits means my Medicare Part B and Part D premiums will increase dramatically, even more than tripling. Also, I did not want to be subject to the AMT. Therefore, as soon as Turbotax arrived, I plugged in all known income and deductions. I then knew the maximum final withdrawal to make from my IRA without wasting any of it. I also knew within a narrow margin what my taxes would be and could make a final tax payment to ensure I will not be subject to a underwithholding penalty or have to pay estimated taxes next year. Using Turbotax to finish 2012 monetary allocations also gives me a headstart on reporting my taxes. As the real data becomes available, I will make a final check/correction of my entries and then e-file.

I have used TurboTax for about ten years and have never had a problem with a tax return. It makes doing your taxes easy and fairly foolproof. I would recommend it to anyone with a computer. It has the capability to import data from many of your financial institutions, reducting the data entry you must do. Each year it also pulls in static data from your previous year's TurboTax return, eliminating the need to re-enter unchanged data. I also offers a side-by side listing of your previous years numbers with the current year which may indicate missing or incorrect entries. This is a great product.
