After reading the one star reviewer griping about installing the Amazon proprietary software, I was reluctant to download given that I am, by no means, a techy person....I'm glad I ignored the review. This was an easy, straight forward install and works perfectly. Yes, I had to click an Amazon logo for their install but it was not an issue and immediately began downloading Turbotax for me.

Outside of firing it up and importing my 2010 data, I haven't exercised the 2011 version much. But...

I've been using TurboTax for years, back to when it was called MacInTax. My one attempt to use a competing product was disappointing at best. If I ever have a really bad TurboTax experience, I'll probably look elsewhere, but so far that hasn't happened.

I won't say it's perfect, but it's sufficiently close for my purposes. My only real hassle some years ago (a 1099-MISC) turned out to be because the organization that sent it had filled it out wrong, and TurboTax didn't like what I tried to enter.

This was the second (third?) time to get the download version. But understand that these days, even if you get the CD version really all you're getting is the bootstrap that downloads the real software. You end up with the same thing one way or another.

Yes, I have one of the newer Intel machines. I shut down my last PowerPC about a month ago. One reviewer reported problems with PowerPC, but that's the Amazon downloader, not TurboTax. Note that, at least today, there's a warning on the Amazon purchase window: "The Amazon Mac downloader only supports Intel based Macs with OS 10.5 and above." If you're on an older Mac you'll probably need the CD version, or find someplace to download. But direct your ire at Amazon, not Intuit, for that.

Another reviewer reported problems importing last year's data, though s/he was able to circumvent that problem by importing from a pdf. Import worked flawlessly for me. It would be interesting to know if there was something unusual about their setup.

Same as last year, TT Premier for the Mac downloaded and installed on my MacBook Pro (OS 10.6.8) without any issues. Best way to get the software and for a reasonable price. The program itself runs well and keeps itself up to date with the latest info. Recommended.

I have used Turbo Tax to prepare and file my tax returns for the past 5 years; however, I was nervous this year because I changed from a PC to a Mac. I was happy to find that my fears were unwarranted. The download process was very easy, with no glitches or hassles. The tax preparation process was just as simple on my Mac as it has always been on my PC. I had made a number of investment transactions last year, and Turbo Tax Premier took me through them very easily. The price on Amazon was $30 less than that published on the Intuit site. Overall, I was very pleased with this product and would recommend it to others.

Installed the Turbotax Premier on my Mac running Snow Leopard. Will not transfer my 2010 HR Block returns. Wants me to enter the information manually. Yeah right, all 76 pages of my 2010 returns.
Turbotax Premier a NO GO on my Mac.

Turbotax advertises that Premier is compatible with last year's HR Block returns. You find out that you must use the PDF when you open Turbotax.
I was not satisfied with HR Block because I had to enter my oil trust depletion deductions by hand last year. Not good. However, I am now looking at a worthless piece of Turbotax software on my computer and STILL having to return to HR Block. What a bummer.

This is the second year that I have purchased the Downloadable Turbo Tax and it has worked great both times. I was able to download the program easily, and I am VERY technologically challenged. I was able to pull last year's information through with no problems. The program did kick me out very quickly at first when I clicked off the software and tried to go to my bank's site to pull some tax information, but once I went back to Turbo Tax and saved the return I was working on I did not have that problem again. It worked great and I will definitely be purchasing this again next year.

I have an older PowerBook G4 Mac on OS 10.5.8 and having been using Turbotax forever. Up until now, I have always purchased the physical disc and had no issues. But I decided to get the digital copy this time and got up to the download part just fine. The disc image that opens up initially, is for the Amazon Download Manager, which keeps quitting (unexpectedly) in the middle. Now I am left with the SHAFT and Amazon's no refund policy on digital downloads even though it is their app that is causing the problem. I have contacted customer support and requested a refund and we'll see how they handle this issue. Newer Mac owners of Pentium based processors may not have this issue, but other owners of older Macs - buyer beware!

I just spent half-an-hour on the phone with their support. When I tried to transfer in my 2010 information from an H&R Block TaxCut PDF file, which the software website and the software entry screen itself says is supported, it would not work. In the help file on the INtuit support site, it says this feature only is supported on the Windows version, not on Mac desktop software. So, buyer beware: if this situation applies to you, this feature may not work. It sounds like Intuit is trying to resolve the discrepancy. Since I bought from Amazon instead of directly from TurboTax, it makes the recourse harder.
