By D. Chambers on January 5, 2007
I used to be VERY happy with TurboTax, going back to the DOS days. I'm finally giving it up due to increasingly frequent tech problems over the last few years.

Before you switch from Tax Cut, compare the prices: they want $45 for Fed+State; Tax Cut wants $30. NEITHER product includes free filing for tax year 2006.

Macintosh support from Tax Cut (apparently missing last year) is back, and others have reviewed it under this product.

Current Turbo Tax users (tax year 2006) are reporting that they are unable to import from prior-year Tax Cut, nor do the Turbo Tax specs say they can.

If you are installing Turbo Tax on a Windows 98 machine, your installation will immediately abort & it will print out instructions for mailing the product back to them for a refund in 8 weeks.

Footnote/suggestion for those wanting to save money: Just buy the basic package, then file on paper; if you file paper in February/March, before the rush, your refund comes back in about 10 days--almost as fast as with e-file. Then do your state return by hand: most state returns are a page or two with numbers taken right off the federal form; just use your prior-year return as a guide if you get stuck.

Seeing how Turbotax increased their prices this year I thought I'd save myself a few bucks by trying TaxCut Premium Federal+State for the first time. The box says it is compatible with Mac OS X and will import data from last year's TurboTax returns so I gave it a try.

I installed the program on my Mac and opened it to start my return. I have a fairly complex return so importing last year's data is a helpful timesaver. Unfortunately, after many attempts I was never able to import anything, not even my name. I called their customer service and tried all kinds of solutions to no avail. They said someone from their "escalation team" would contact me within 24-48 hours. Eight days later there was no news from them so I called back. They had no record of my case and I had to go through the whole explanation all over. Once again their rep had no clue how to fix the problem and gave me a phone number to call for further assistance or a refund.

I called the number and once again no case number! A third round of explanations with another service rep and his manager followed with no solution and no money back. Now I must wait for someone in their "escalation team" to contact me a fourth time but they will not provide a timeframe for the call.

The delays in response, their inability to track a case number, their weak product knowledge and their reluctance to provide a refund after this much hassle make this a poor product in my opinion.

UPDATE:

A quick update for fairness' sake on my review. Three weeks after my first attempt to use TaxCut I finally figured out what went wrong.

It turns out TaxCut cannot import TurboTax files with password access. I had to disable the password setting on last year's Turbotax and was then able to import data.

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!

I'd been using Tax-Cut since 1998 on MAC platforms. Tax-Cut abandoned MAC users for 2005 taxes, so I was forced to Turbo-Tax. This was a pain because I had to re-enter information from scratch, as opposed to reading in from the prior year. I found turbo-tax not any better than Tax-cut in 2005. I have a mix of self employment incomes, some rent etc, requiring lots of forms but I am no business owner.

For 2006, I emailed TaxCut to see if the '06 software could read the MAC '04 resturns. Answer=NO. So, I was going to use Turbo-Tax again. However, Turbo-Tax had done the dirty this year, and divided their premium software by forms (schedule C, then rentals), so I'd have to buy the most expensive "small business" Turbo-Tax software, as opposed to just the premium package (even though other reviewers note that its not really for small business). The price differential of the Schedule C Turbo-Tax, with Tax-Cut is really very large. On the other hand, returning to the Tax-Cut web-site is omenous in that the "FAQ" and software demonstration portions are "To be developed". However, I don't like monopolies, so I decided to give Tax-Cut another try, figuring I can go back and buy Turbo-Tax if necessary.

I haven't seriously started '06 taxes yet, but I am pleasantly surprised with '06 Tax-cut Premium Federal + State. It looks to be the same as the MAC '04 version. Better still, it actually read in a bunch of simple '05 Turbo-Tax returns from my minor children. However, it could not read my '05 Turbo Tax return for some reason (will try some more). Having not expected to be able to read in any of last years data however, I feel I am at least ahead to some extent.

There are complaints by other purchasers about new e-filing charges for Tax-Cut.
