I have been using Turbo Tax Deluxe for several years. It loads and operates just fine for me and since I live in Texas I don't require a state tax return and Turbo Tax has a version with no state tax. Fair price, consistent quality, familiar operation. I don't care for the constant upsell (thus one star removed), but that is Intuit.

I know its my fault, but I didn't realize this didn't include my state taxes also. I am really upset that my state is going to cost as much as what I paid for this version. They do have TurboTax Deluxe Federal+ State for a few dollars more. Just know that the state is not included in this download.

This product doesn't include the STATE portion. TurboTax wants to charge me an addition 45 dollars to submit for ONE state.

DO NOT PURCHASE if you live in a state where you pay income tax. USELESS for one-stop taxing. Be sure to get one that does include the state. For a whopping 5 bucks more .... NOT 45.

PAY ATTENTION.

I've used TTax for a number of years. As of yet, I've not had any problems or have been audited. (I'm a simple, retired, taxpayer with un-complicated taxes). What I want is easy and cheap. I haven't been a fan of "online" taxes in that they may not be available when I need them. And, then, there's the possibility of someone hacking your personal data. TTax continues to make doing my simple taxes easy and quick. I'm not just looking for a maximum refund, I'm looking at not going to jail! What I don't like is that they continue to try and extract more money from you by offering more services. But, they are a "business" and maybe you should expect this or expect to pay more for their s/w, or, maybe it might be a good service for you. Every year, I look at other tax programs and they just don't seem to measure up for about the same price. TTax at least inputs my basic previous data like name and SSn. I haven't had to use more advanced services.

If you have relatively simple taxes, and if you pay an accountant to do them, you will save a bundle with turbo tax. If you are not good with a computer and/or your taxes are complex, better stick with your accountant.

For the past 15 years I have always used the online version which did a good job. This is my first year using the PC version and I really liked being able to actually see the forms instead of just filling in boxes and Turbotax doing everything behind the scenes and only being able to see the result. I had an issue in one area and being able to see the form help me figure out how to correct the problem. I will probably use the PC version from now on because it is slightly cheaper and allows me to view the actual forms. The only drawback is that I did like having my forms stored in the cloud automatically but I can do that myself from now on. Also In the future I will buy the Federal and state together because it does cost more to do them separately.

've been using Turbo Tax Deluxe for the past 6 years. I did find one fault with this software which almost cost me a lot of problems. I inherited about $6,000 from my mother and reported it using Turbo Tax Deluxe when I did my taxes in January. Turbo Tax Deluxe said I could contribute to an IRA because my AGI was under the limit. This was good so I contributed to an IRA for 2012. So fast forward to April and time to print out the tax forms and mail them in. Start the computer and Turbo Tax and it updates Turbo Tax. Turbo Tax updates my tax return and now my return has changed. The $6,000 that I inherited from my mother is still there but now I can't contribute a single penny to my IRA for 2012. Why, because Turbo Tax didn't add the $6,000 to any of the calculations back in January. Between January and April this bug has been fix in an update. So now I have to rush to the bank and try pull the money out of the IRA before April 15, 2013. But it can not be done that day it take a week or so to do it. If it wasn't pulled by April 15, 2013 it would need to be pulled out in the next tax year which would be fines, penalties and a bunch of paper work. The lesson here is for anybody using Turbo Tax or any tax software. Don't be in a rush to do your taxes and mail it in as soon as you can. If there is a bug in the software you could be in trouble. Advice, do your taxes as soon as you want but update your software and wait till March or April to mail your return in. The bugs should we worked out by them.

I have been a turbo tax user since the early 80's. Last years version and this years version is CRAP!!! I don't know what happened @ turbo tax but they have not kept their eye on the ball. Last years version had me owing $2000.00 more than I really did. this years version doesn't update the amount you get back or owe if you edit the return. This version is not as user friendly as in the past. I do not recommend this version of turbo tax. Who knows, maybe they will get it right next year (NOT). I changed over to H and R blockhead software and they don't have any of the issues turbo tax has. Sorry turbo tax, I used to really like your software.
