Great Product

Pros: very easy and self explanatory
Cons: software advertisements offered in the package
Model Number: Turbo Tax Deluxe with State and E-file
"My wife and I have been using this product for years, and have never had a problem. It walks you right through every step. It automatically downloads any changes in the tax code that have taken place since the software was produced. It also downloads the the necessary software for your particular state.
It is concise and easy to use (as easy as tax preparation can be), it asks you about all available deductions that you may be entitled to. You can stop and take a break anytime you want, and it picks up right where you left off when you decide to get back to work on it.
The e-file option is fast and easy. This software is the only way to go, in my opinion.

Will continue to use this every year!

"We use to have our taxes done by an accountant and it was so expensive! One year we decided to do it ourselves using Turbo Tax. And we haven't gone back to the accountant since!
It is very easy to use and I like that it has the stored information from what you entered the previous year.
Their customer service has been great and very helpful.
Two things I would like to point out. If you have difficult taxes then I would spend the money to see an accountant. If you fear that you need more protection they do offer a service (which costs more) and they will provide more coverage in the event there is an issue.
But if you have simple, straight forward tax information then try this! You will continue to use it for years!

Will not allow editing/updating - no live help

Pros: it's what you use every year
Cons: features moved to premium versions to pad profit
"As a regular TT user, I didn't think twice about signing on again. One of the nice features was the ability to import broker/payer info from previous returns. This feature apparently no longer exists. If I could reach live support at Intuit, perhaps someone could help me figure this out, but alas, the Deluxe version no longer provides live support."

64-BIT Mac Only

Pros: cheap
Cons: 64-bit mac only
"I've been using Turbotax for many years and was very happy with it. So when I went to load it onto my iMac I got an error message that it wasn't compatable.
It took ten minutes of digging on the Turbotax website to figure out that this software will only work on 64-Bit Macs.
Nowhere on the box does it state that it only works with 64-Bit Macs.
Very frustrating. Plus to use the online Turbotax will be $70.
I think I'll try some other tax software.

Worst Tax Filing Experience in over 42 years!!!!

"Buyer Beware: This version of Turbotax Deluxe is defective. The California State
Tax information on the CD will not load. After calling Turbotax and waiting for more than 45 minutes on hold, we were informed that the Costco version of Turbotax Deluxe is defective for filing California tax returns. This defect resulted in an entire hour of my time being wasted. Costco needs to warn their members of this.

The only way to do your taxes

Pros: fast and easy
Cons: you can't go stright to the standard deduction
Model Number: Tarbo Tax Deluxe
"Turbo Tax was so simple to use. All you do is provide a little information and answer the questions. Turbo Tax does all the work for you. Turbo Tax will do all the calculations and fill out all the forms. You can print a copy of your taxes for your records. You have the option of mailing your tax forms or E-filing. E-filing your federal return is free, but there is a $19.99 charge for E-filing your state return."

Great Product - Easy to use.

Pros: always up-to-date with latest tax codes., great review of your return for errors., helps you find deductions.
Cons: state e-file is an additional cost.
Model Number: Deluxe Federal & State
"I have been using TurboTax since the 1990's and I have never had an issue. It has helped me keep better records which expedites the process every year. Import your previous return data and if you use personal finance software it can import that as well. It gets better every year and has handled every situation I have been in from buying/selling property to most recently a short-sale situation. I recommend it to all my friends and co-workers."

Turbo Tax Deluxe

Pros: reasonable price for doing your taxes.
"I found this product very easy to use, and having used it in previous years, it gathers all your previous years info so you don't have to search for it. It also makes easy suggestions for the new year.
Fast and Easy. Just waiting for my return:)

Have used this product for over 20 years

Pros: easy and a lot less expensive than a consultant
Cons: none
"The only time I received correspondence from the IRS when when "I" messed up. Otherwise, this product has been spot on for over 20 years. Never an audit. Always easy. Always up to date on the latest changes to the tax code. I hate paying taxes, but if you have to, this is the way to do it."

Difficult to use

"This was a disaster. I had a difficult time getting to the state tax section. The program kept putting me into continuous loops. It was even more difficult to make corrections later. I hope Costco finds a better product next year."

"1. Whenever you go turn TurboTax on again, you always have to answer the same questions over again.
