"A breeze to use"4.5 starson by Zbillz1
Pros: Easy to understand, great extra "help" explanations, If you already use their quicken program, data flows from 1 to the other without a hitch,
Cons: No live help
Summary: I'm self employed + An active investor (stocks, options & limited partnerships) + I use a home office = Not a simple tax return to calculate! I've used (& love) Quicken's Home & Business program for years to track all my personal, business & investment transactions, accounts etc. I've used TurboTax for the last three tax years (w Windows XP), w never a problem. Turbotax Brings me through the miserable experience of calculating & reporting taxes quickly & accurately through a very, very easy to understand format, language & guidance (which I need) ! ...Enter the data by answering the questions (multiple choice), hit "yes" to review/correct/summarize & poof! It's done!! I know zip about accounting. This is one very well thought out program making something that's very difficult & confusing both manageable, flexible &, most importantly, Easy To Use. BTW, TurboTax, if you tell it to, reads the transactions from it's Quicken / Quick Books checking account program thus avoiding having to summarize #'s yourself (unless you want to).FYI I've always used Intuiit's more extensive TurboTax for Home & Business program, NOT TurboTax Deluxe ...
