TurboTax double-checks your return, looks for errors and missed deductions, and flags audit risks.


File your return electronically via E-file, or by mail.
No More Lost Opportunities
Deluxe Deduction Maximizer shows you how to qualify for over 350 deductions, from mortgage interest, to child-care expenses and more, so you don't miss important deductions that could have a significant impact on your return. As you move through the deduction process, this program looks for deduction opportunities, shows you which deductions you've already taken, which you haven't, and which you're not yet eligible to take. The end result is a comprehensive tally showing how much you've saved in deductions as well as the impact on your refund or bottom line.

Life Events Planner
This program now features software that guides you through common life events-- like buying a new home, taking on new dependents, marriage or divorce-- and shows how future life changes will affect next year's taxes. By giving you a glimpse of what's to come, you can optimize your present and future tax situation.

Time-Saving Options
Deluxe Deduction Maximizer is loaded with time-saving features that help you to quickly and easily file your taxes without making mistakes or cheating yourself out of key deductions. First, this program lets you transfer and edit information from your last year's TurboTax return so you don't have to enter it again. Then, when it comes time to make changes, you can take advantage of the summary pages at the end of each section-- they make it a snap to find and edit data you've previously entered. Save even more time by quickly jumping to sections of your return using a clickable tax topic list.

Nothing wastes time more than an exhaustive audit, and that's why Deluxe Deduction Maximizer flags items the IRS might question so you can take care of potential problems before you file. At the same time, this program compares your deductions to national averages for your income bracket so you can quickly see if your deductions fall outside the norm. This prevents future headaches while also potentially saving you money.

Fast, Guaranteed Results
Because it's so thorough and easy to use, Deluxe Deduction Maximizer can help deliver the fastest refund possible. For even speedier results, e-file your return and get your money back in as little as 10 days (fees apply). This program also comes with TurboTax's guarantee that you'll get the maximum refund you're entitled to with TurboTax than with any other tax preparation method or they'll refund you every penny of your purchase price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Say NO To Audit Defense Option!! July 9, 2007
The Turbo Tax software was really useful. HOWEVER they offer you "Audit Defense", a service that is supposed to represent you if you are ever Audited by the IRS. Well guess what, I was audited by the IRS. The accountant that they assigned to my case was in Pennsylvania (I live in DC, my case was being reviewed in DC). The guy NEVER called to ask what my situation was. After I initiated the call, he tried to tell me not to "fight the 2005 audit and maybe they will let the 2004 audit slide". I wasn't trying to "fight" anything, I wanted someone to Present My Case! After my date was up, I didnt hear from the guy, 3 weeks later I get a letter in the mail from the IRS saying I owe money because I didnt show XYZ information. DO NOT GET THE AUDIT DEFENSE! It is like going to court with a Public Defender, you are asking to lose...

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Import from It's Deductible Online January 15, 2007
By Alex
Verified Purchase
I'm very happy with the software, with one exception... You can't import your Deduction information from It's Deductible Online. Last year the software suggested that we use the online version of It's Deductible giving the impression that we'd be able to import our information into the Desktop edition of TT. Unfortunately that is not the case. In a nutshell, if you have a lot of Deductions in It's Deductible Online, then you'll need to start your return using the online edition of TT (it's free till you're ready to file so you don't have to pay twice), import the deductions, then export your tax file to the desktop edition of TT. It's a real pain, and if you've already filled out your Taxes up to the point where you enter in your deductions, you'll have to start all over again.

If it weren't for this major hassle, I would have rated this a 4 or a 5, but finding out about this problem more than half way through my taxes, and having to start all over again is a big zinger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best In Class, But... December 3, 2006
I just finished a pro-forma tax return last night and, as has been the case for many years, using TurboTax was relatively easy and "bulletproof."

My criticisms below are therefore meant to be constructive...

1. While the deduction finder feature was great, it was tedious.
2. File saves could be more frequent or automatic.
3. Calculation fields attached to most, if not all, numeric entry panels would be a big plus.
4. File transfers from Quicken were spotty. Some items were missed due to field defintion conflicts between TT and Quicken 2003.

It's the gold standard for home tax prep, though, and I would not hesitate to recommend using it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Before you buy, read this! December 9, 2006
Before you buy this, you should be aware that Intuit charges $15 for each e-file, Federal or state. There's no free e-filing with Turbo Tax, period. Seriously, I think $15 is a lot to pay for e-filing. There are websites that give you completely free e-filing; my favorite is TaxAct (at taxactonline dot com). With TaxAct, you get the complete Federal plus state package for $7.95, which includes e-filing. Or you can use their standard package to prepare Federal and e-file for free, with *NO* income restriction!

I don't work for any of these companies, nor any tax-related company, nor any such entity. I just don't think it's right for Intuit to charge customers such a ridiculously high fee for e-filing, whereas people can e-file for free elsewhere. BTW, if you use Turbo Tax to prepare your return, you'll have to use Intuit's e-filing service if you want to e-file; you can't just take your file to another website and expect that website to do it for you. I used TaxAct in the past and they are very dependable. You can find reviews of TaxAct products in major magazines and on major websites.

Good luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sneaky price increase January 2, 2007
This year they stopped paying for the federal online "e-file" - worth $15. So have the other guys, but... now that they know you're hooked on efiling, they've quietly removed that benefit.

I think the federal government should pay us for doing all the data entry for them!

2.0 out of 5 stars TT fan but 2006 eFile Has Issues January 25, 2007
Verified Purchase
Been a Turbo Tax user for many years now. This year's interview process seems clearer to me than last year's, although once in a while I find some of the instructions ambiguous and occassionally have to resort to the Help files. I'm also glad the pricing is straight forward now as the rebates in the past have been a pain ... but I do think they should include eFiling at no charge or at least state the fees ($14.95 each for Federal & State) right up front. By time you add up the costs you might want to consider having your taxes prepared instead of doing it yourself.

That said what I enjoy most about the product is the gratification I get from doing it myself, really undertanding my taxes and filing very early to collect my refund. So this is what frustrated me most this year, I went to file only to find out that I can't submit my return electronically because of a simple Turbo Tax error for a Box 14 item.

If you're in NJ then pay attention... here is what Intuit has to say...

"Hello,

You are receiving this e-mail message because you signed up to be notified when a solution to the following issue became available:

Error: "Box 14 Amount: New Jersey UI/HD/WD cannot be greater than $105.83"

Error: "Box 14 Amount: New Jersey SDI cannot be greater than $124.05"

An update that will fix this problem is expected for release in early February. If you would rather not wait until then to e-file your New Jersey return, you can print and mail a conventional paper return.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for using TurboTax!

The TurboTax Support Team"

So now I can't get my refund for a few weeks longer than expected, which means more money not in my pocket.
