Pros It s an easy program with good instructions. Very good for the novice.
Cons A little costly but well worth it.
Summary I have been using Turbo Tax , since version 3, for many years and it has never failed to provide an accurate tax return.
Pros 1 Ability to import data from financial institutions e.g. Fidelity
2 Tracks your audit risk
3 Transfers last year?s tax Info
4 Shows your tax refund in real time on top of the screen
Cons None so far.
Summary TurboTax continues to improve, I've been using Turbo tax preparation software for about 5 years, although more expensive, it worth every penny.
Pros really user friendly and just about idiot proof,the import ability for w-2's is nice also
Cons install time can be long while waiting for the inital update depending on your connection speed,but well worth the wait,
Summary i've been a turbo tax user since my 2005 tax filing and i find this to be the easiest tax software to use...using the interview interface is as simple just answering the questions asked and entering the info..and the fact that you get 5 free federal e-files means that i can save my family members a few bucks by doing and filing their taxes for them...the onlt thing that prevents me from giving this a full 5 stars is that not all w-2's can be imported(really that is a function of your employer) and filing your state return can be pricey at 19.95 but you can get around that by going to your state department of revenue and file your state thru them(i know you can in illinois as thats how i do it)...all in all i am very pleased with turbo tax and it makes a yearly chore a breeze
Pros There is nothing redeeming about Turbo-Error
Cons * errors built-in to software--treatment of soc. security income
* user interface not as good as TaxCut
* overpriced with extraneous features
Summary Nope. Will never use again after getting my letter from the IRS. I do not need the problems generated by Turbo-ERRORS.
Pros The program has an logical layout and covers most forms and tax areas that most users will need.
Cons It can take awhile to learn how to access certain functions quickly.
Summary This is good software that enables many people to file their own taxes. It seems to get a little better each year.
