I have used turbo tax for at least the past five years and it definitely takes the stress out of filing for taxes. It keeps my prior years' returns on file for easy access and even transfers all information over to the current year when I need it. My favorite part is watching my tax refund go up like I've hit the jackpot at a casino. I would give this service five stars if they weren't so darn expensive. It seems that every year the cost to file goes up; and when you add in the hidden fees, such as e-filing fee, separate state and federal filing fees, direct deposit fee, audit protection fee it comes to nearly the same as if I had taken it to a professional and had them do the return for me. This unfortunately will likely be the reason that I will look elsewhere but otherwise it is a very user-friendly, straightforward and trustworthy way of completing your year-end taxes.
TurboTax works- and I haven’t encountered an issue with the IRS, but man is Turbotax frustrating. I have used it for years now, and recently they want to charge you for accessing your prior tears returns and documents. It was not that way before- and as a loyal user for years, leaves a terrible taste in my mouth. I am already looking into what I will use for this year. I am also a student, and FAFSA requires a year before return, so again, I am left trying to pay to access my personal information, I gave them. I use the word “try,” because- good luck. Attempting to upgrade your account leads down rabbit holes and to “help” forums that get you literally nothing. It’s impossible to get help that isnt a keyword search, nothing specific to what you need. My past years experience was nothing short of infuriating.
Imy husband and I have used turbo tax to file oir taxes the for the last 3-5 years. We've had nothing but good experiences with them until this last year. We've had to file out of state taxes just like the same way we've done the last 3 years or so. We always have the return directly deposited into our bank account with no additional fee. This year we had a $40 fee for the form we filed, a $40 fee for filing both in state an out of state taxes together, and a $50 fee for having our refund directly deposited into our account. Turbo Tax claims that it's free to file. We filed the same exact way as we have every year, but we've never had this much taken out of our return previously. Needless to say we feel as though Turbo Tax has bee.n very dexeivinh
I usually go to a professional to go my taxes. But everyone was telling me I don’t need to and to use TurboTax. So, this year I decided to go with TurboTax. You can use TurboTax to see how much you are going to get back from state and federal before actually filing it, which is really nice. When I filed, they had the AbsoluteZero going on, so I didn’t have to pay their fees. Upon filing my taxes, it was simple; everything was straight forward. Also what is nice is that they have a protection plan that cost $40 from the irs. Also when I made a mistake and my taxes got rejected, I immediately got an email and fixed it right away. Super simple, and I wished I knew about TurboTax earlier. Highly recommend.
I have been using turbo tax for years! Literally since I began working in my teens. It has always been great to me and I have never had any issues! It is so high tech that it walks you through literally every step and every aspect of your tax return. If you have any questions or concerns you can call them, email them, or even live chat someone to help you. You can customize our tax package to your preference depending on if your are a regular person or have a business, etc. there are different price packages for that. What I love most is how fast I receive my return within a couple weeks. The only thing that has changed is the fact that the initial price to do your tax return has went up slightly.
Ok I'm not going to lie- when I first saw the commercials I thought turbo tax was a scam. I filed with some side companies for awhile and I was never comfortable doing it. Something about someone nosing so deep in your financial messes and I always felt they were judging me. Stupid I know, but I just wasn't comfortable. When I got married my husbands father used turbo tax and did everyone taxes. Again- I thought it was a scam and we'd end up being audited or something. I've got to say, we've sat and done it with him year after year and it's so quick and easy! It makes it idiot proofs and you get your return so quick. I would defiantly recommend it. It's very user friendly.
I have an easy time with TurboTax if I get the hang of it which I’ve gotten a chance to do.

I like how turbo tax is a helpful way to file your taxes online, it only takes a couple of weeks to receive your money except the state refund takes longer. I don’t like the fact they charge you for everything though.. one time I had to pay almost $100 to file my taxes when they made it seem like I would be able to do it for free, I wasn’t happy about this because they didn’t tell me till the very last minute otherwise I would of had to gone back and added in my old information from the previous year again.. I wouldn’t of minded as much if I was aware from the beginning about this. It’s an ok place to do your taxes, still better than some other companies but I didn’t appreciate the last minute fee..
Although TurboTax is cheap, I ran into several problems while trying to file taxes through their app this year. It had alot of glitches and froze up several times. What should have taken me a day, two at best, took me two weeks altogether. And then after filing taxes, it was automatically not accepted by the IRS. It was a typical, but something that the tax service professionals should have caught because I paid for the extra service, which they failed to provide. I would not recommend it. If you plan to pay for extra service from them, prepare to not receive the service.
If you know how to honestly file your own taxes Turbo Tax is the way to go. Honestly it’s the easiest quickest thing ever especially if you have an hour of free time on your off day, don’t worry it doesn’t actually take an hour especially if you have everything organized before hand. Not to mention if you do it by yourself you don’t have to pay somebody else to do your taxes for you! I never quite understood why other people needed somebody else to file taxes for them, but I guess if that’s your thing this would not be the thing to use. Will forever use this when filing my taxes
