My family and business dropped _thousands_ of dollars on accountants for years. Then we finally got sick of their do-nothing attitude and bought this. Been using it for five years and love it. Consistently outperformed the accountants in terms of saving us money and not making mistakes. Even if there are deductions somewhere the so-called pros could find that we don't find with this product (and I doubt that there are), the cost of those pros is too high to make it worth worrying about.

One complaint/suggestion for Intuit: It's not clear from the descriptions here that this product will, ultimately, let you do state filings as well, but that you have to download them after you have bought and installed this federal product. You might want to make that more immediately apparent, as all of the home versions emphasize they do both, so one has to wonder why this one might not (I assume it's because businesses might well have multiple state filing requirements, and you don't want to people think this one purchase covers any number of states at no additional cost, but somewhere there's got to be a person who can make that clear in your advertising copy for you).

I am a 9 year user of TurboTax for Business. The last few years corrected a number of older problems with multi owner LLC K-1 preparation and got rid of the need to do several manual overrides.

Thank you for posting the release early again this year so I can purchase, install it, and get a preliminary year-end run in as the IRS releases forms for 2013. This saves me time as we make some year end decisions.
I will update this review if I see any functionality issues once the final tax forms for 2013 are released.

I've used turbotax software on my Mac since around 1998. It's always gotten the job done, so I continue to be a customer. As a freelancer and small business owner, I'm resolved to the fact that I have to purchase two different pieces of software every year (both of Intuit's most expensive offerings, "Home and Business" and "Business" for my S corp since 2008).

I have two major issues with this software.

#1- No Mac version or online version. Seriously? in 2014? I already know Intuit's "we don't care" stance on OSX. Their slow response to a workable version of Quickbooks in the past is a testament to that. -1 star for that, because I already expect it from them.

#2- NYC users have to purchase 2 state products. NYState and NYC. This is absolutely RIDICULOUS! Intuit, NYC should be included in the NY State download. For the paltry amount of data and forms that the NYC product produces, this is pure greed on your part. No question, no excuses. And your customer service reps are completely clueless every year when I call to question them on this. Don't you understand that NYC is not a state? - 2 stars for that crime.

+2 stars that it exists, because "I don't like it, but I have to use it". Intuit should just be aware that as soon as there is an OSX or online alternative from a competitor, they've lost my business on 2 software purchases a year. Maybe they should include a survey with this product to see how many users are on OSX, and get that online version released immediately.

I have used this software for tax prep for LLCs and partnerships for 5 years. It is reasonably easy to use, however the user must be familiar with tax rules, or frankly they could make mistakes with this software. For example, if a participating investor passes their shares to another party (due to death, etc.) TurboTax does not always handle the transfer correctly; TurboTax does not ask if there will be a "step-up"; TurboTax does not always handle the "step-up" depreciation correctly. So, I recommend this product with reservation - you MUST know about LLC/Partnership taxes before using this product!

Form 1120S - entered depreciation of assets; however, form 4562 is not showing as a form that will be filed or can be printed. When in form view, it does not show as a form in my return; however, if I select form 1120S p1-2, the depreciation smart worksheet shows that a form 4562 has been created - yet is not showing for filing or printing? Seems to be a TT business programming error. Contacted support via chat, and I wasted almost 2 hours with two different representatives that stated that they could not relay this information to technical support and could not assist me with their limited knowledge. I was told that I would have to call the TT Business Department to get this reviewed and maybe (just maybe) get this code issue fixed....

Sam... Form 4562 is not yet available from the IRS. When it does become available, it will be incorporated in the TurboTax products.

Last year, after spending several hours I managed to get a proper return done for my 2-person LLC. This year Quickbooks and Turbotax simply don't speak the same language.

Throughout the year, I make regular distributions to my partner and to myself. I have tried booking those alternatively to our equity accounts or directly to retained earnings but nothing works. Whatever I do, when I am ready to import the Quickbooks file into Turbotax the result is nonsensical. Additionally the program does a horrible job of explaining the implications of the questions that it asks during the interview process. For example, if you make special allocations to one or more partners it is nearly impossible to reflect that properly on the tax return and on the K-1s. It is absolutely stunning that two programs which have been around for so long and which are sold by the same company could inter-operate so poorly.

The program flags discrepancies which are not really there. For example some entertainment expenses are only 50% deductible. Not surprisingly, once the adjustment to the book income is made, there is a difference between book income and tax income. However, I have found no way to simply accept that difference and move on. If the difference can be explained by the different treatment of expenses for tax and book purposes, why do I have to tear my hair out trying to trick the program into accepting the differences?

I specifically waited until late January to download the program, figuring that will give Intuit time to fix any issues. As things stand now, I think I will simply download the forms from the IRS and fill them out by hand. Unbelievable.
