"More costly and less useful than previous versions"2.5 starson by bw43
Pros: Imports from TT 2007 and from many financial instutions.
Cons: Too many updates; can't get it right the first time!
Big glitch in Ohio program, included with TT Deluxe.
Summary: Less user friendly than previous versions. Ease of moving around seems more complicated. MAJOR glitch in State (Ohio) program. They keep promising a fix by 4/1/2009, but for now you just cannot calculate the deductions for military retirement pay and federal civil service pay, even if you use the workaround posted by "TurboTax Michael" In the TT Community. It works, but once you click through to Print and File - continue, it goes away, just as if you'd never entered any information for this deduction. Shabby. I've used TT for many years and never had a complaint. I think they are pushing an inferior product this time.
