I have never had any issues with TurboTax. I've used the product for at least a dozen years, even to do the taxes for a home based business. There is no issue with using the tool or the effectiveness. (Still puzzles me how Tim Geithner couldn't figure it out.) I have a few serious issues that do not affect the use of the product, just personal gripes. The first, is selecting the "right" version for you to use. Effectively, the most basic one will work for everything you need. The pricier versions provide you more "hand holding" through the process rather than just quoting the IRS language. It is a bit annoying as you enter different areas in the software, how they try to get you to "upgrade" online, with veiled threats of what might happen if you don't take advantage of their support and the IRS finds an error. Another, is the need to buy a "full version" every year. Seems to me, once you buy TurboTax, you could pay a lower fee each year to upgrade to the next year's version. Finally, there are situations such as mine where I live in a state with no income tax, yet to get the version I need, there are only versions with the State Income Tax software included. If I bought a lesser capable version, it can be bought for several dollars less without a State form as an option. These are just annoying things I am reminded of every year when I buy what I need to do my taxes.

I have been using Turbotax prior to Intuit's purchase of Chipsoft, more than twenty years ago. I have all my disks, either floppy or optical for more than twenty years. Living in San Diego, Turbotax's headquarters since its inception, I know personally CPAs or Enrolled Agents (IRS specialists)who review every form or page of instructions provided in the software every year. Prior to Turbotax, I used Howardsoft's Tax Product and for a time MacInTax and one year I attempted to use TaxCut without success. But for me, its been Turbotax's drive to constantly improve and add more value in their products that sets it apart. I admit that I was annoyed a couple of years ago when I was forced to upgrade online to the Premier version from the Deluxe to successfully complete my Schedule D. I waited to the last minute to file. My girlfriend at the time, used Turbotax to discover that her longtime tax preparer had miscalculated her return which resulted in an $1100 error. Showing the preparer the Turbotax return, the tax preparer submitted a 1040X to correct the error but it took more six months to get the money back. I admit that Turbotax is and primarily a Windows based product and that most the problems complained about here were Mac issues. As I stated in my review title, Turbotax is the best Non-Professional Tax software available today without exception.

I bought this program based on Turbo Tax's representation that I could "easily" import last year's tax data from their competitor's programs. (It was on sale at Costco, so I decided to get an early start on taxes.) Not only can't I import data "easily," but it appears I can't at all. But to learn that, I've been on a chat line with Turbo Tax for over an hour as the well-intentioned but incompetent folks on their help line try to figure out why I can't do what their company claims I can do. It's just maddening.

Perhaps this program is just fine if you've been using it for years or if you don't care about importing last year's data, but I hate misrepresentations.

Back to H&R Block. They're not perfect, but at least their product is what they claim it to be.

I have been filing my own taxes since I was 16. I am now 60. I have tried most of the programs out there. Turbo Tax is by far the best. H&R Block, by far the worst. I use the "Turbo Tax Premium" because it has rental properties on it. It keeps track year by year (by importing last years form, from a saved Turbo Tax copy) on depreciation and prompts you for all deductions. You can't beat it. WalMart had the same program for $84. Amazon comes through again.

Horror story (non fiction)---
I owned and occupied a duplex 2005 and 2006. I am retired and peronally did a healthy amount of repairs to the property and kept a complete set of expense records w/Turbo Tax including depreciation; capital improvements,taxes/ and included prorating 50% attributable to my unit. Every item was listed on a spread sheet for the years involved.
Mistake #1 I was notified of an audit in 2007 and assumed it would be just a formality.
Mistake #2 I was gullible,assumed the audit would be fair, equitable and without preconceived intentions.
Mistake #3 I was not prepared for the "shock" of being told all deductions expenses and depreciation were denied.
Mistake #4 I asked to see her supervisor and was told, quote, "You can call next week and setup an appointment".

Try and find a lawyer who can / will truly and adequately represent you? Sure, you sign an aggreement and the lawyer will make money for doing very little and you are still screwed. My arbitration was set (by IRS) to take place in another city in another state over 120 miles away 3 trips (info don't go and they win) and all they did was rubber stamp the decision.

I bought a complete set of the IRC (revenue code) and fought them (PRO-SE). They stalled and stalled did not want to respond but I finally got the notice so I could proceed to Federal Court 2(1/2) years later. Thanx to my excellent Turbo Tax 2005/2006 Premier preparation and the Quicken Spread Sheet......
I WON !!
