Helps Maximize Deductions and Simplify Your Taxes
Captures all your deductions, including mileage and expenses for specific jobs, or even household expenses that you can partially write off. The business tax deduction summary lets you instantly see your tax deduction status throughout the year to help avoid any April 15th surprises. At tax time, save time by creating Schedule C reports for your accountant. You can also easily export your data directly to TurboTax to prepare your taxes quickly and accurately.

Helps You Make Better Buy/Sell Decisions
We identify your top-performing investments and compare your portfolio to the market, so you can make smart decisions on buying or selling. For example, use Morningstar Ratings to compare mutual funds and see which ones best fit your investment management goals.

- All Transactions register: This could be handy if you use many accounts and want to enter, maintain and view your transactions in one place. However, if you download transactions from your banking and investment institutions, the download window does not show up when you are in this mode, so you will be forced to continue using the individual account registers anyway.
- Register customization: You can decide which columns appear in each individual register. Transaction Notes can now be shown/edited as a column instead of treating them like an attachment.
- Attachment Encryption: I'm fairly certain this wasn't in the prior version. I guess you can now password protect attachments.Read more ›
I have been using Quicken 2008 Deluxe for the past 3 years.
The process of sunsetting older versions is annoying, but ultimately necessary I believe. This allows the product staff to focus on making new versions better vs. endless patching of legacy products. I think staying current with this type of application is particularly important since it holds so much of your personal financial data. You really do want the latest so that encryption standards and security settings are at their maximum. Especially if you use the one step update with Quicken and the password vault.
A note on upgrading from previous versions: Make sure you have the current backup file where you can find it. The disc walks you through uninstalling the old version, converting your old data to the new version standard, and ultimately installing the 2011 version. One way overdue update is consolidating the save/backup file into a single file, vs. 3 with 2008!
The update did take awhile, it immediately downloaded patches for the newer version, which seemed to take longer than I would've thought. It also converted all the old transactions/downloads from the old data, which took awhile as well. I've been using Quicken since 2001, so I had plenty of data for it to convert.
But overall, no weird error messages or restarting, it just worked. One major gripe with 2008 was how bug-ridden the one step update process was. I managed to finally get it to work in terms of doing my IRA accounts, but always had to download transactions manually for other accounts.Read more ›
I wasn't looking forward to it, because I've worked with Intuit products before ... various versions of Quickbooks. Admittedly it was ten years ago, but I can't say I was impressed--it was pretty buggy stuff, with terrible usability--so I wasn't looking forward to the change.
The initial import of my data actually went surprisingly well. Not perfect, though. If you have any long memos on transactions, they will be truncated... you're going to lose part of them. (30 years ago, when I first got involved in software development, one of the best programmers I've ever known gave me a fantastic rule of thumb; you always make any input field you create far larger than you imagine anyone really needs ... then double it. Intuit's programmer's never got that memo.)
This evening, though, I've run into bug, after bug, after bug. This software is horrible. At this moment I've been on Intuit support chat for about two hours trying to get bill pay (through Wells Fargo) working. At this very moment I have a Wells Fargo account that appears to have Bill Pay turned on, even though it does not have online access turned on, and the software will not let me turn on online access. It's a long story, I won't bore you with the details, but it's a Quicken bug that the support people can't figure out.
Here's an example of another bug/usability problem I found earlier. I want to send a payment to someone I've sent 50 payments to already, via Bill Pay (a moot point, considering I can't get Bill Pay turned on, but let's assume for the moment Bill Pay was working).Read more ›
