"Fairly smooth up until the time to e-file then downhill"3.5 starson by happy?_etax_filer
Pros: Good integration with many different financial institutions
Cons: E-file servers failing on Apr 14 and e-file cost doubles the cost of the product
Summary: Turbo Tax Premier worked smoothly for the most part. Dealing with employee stock options is intuitive - unless the transactions are imported from one's broker. In this situation the user must delete the imported transactions then re-create them using the step-by-step interface. This is easy enough to do except that there was no guidance.
The biggest issues center yet again around e-filing.
1) The cost ($66) nearly matches the price of Turbo Tax Premier
2) as of 9:00 pm PST on April 14 Intuit's servers are overwhelmed again this year; NPR interview this morning not withstanding! I am being advised to file at 4 am!
