  • From Free to “Free”

    By Just done..
    Done taxes through TurboTax for the last several years, no fees or minimal. Not to forcing a “Premium” service I didn’t sign up for and doesn’t do anything for me. Which ends up costing 120 dollars, then to go back through the filing to see where I fixed up the premium service to say now it cost 209 dollars to file (both Federal and State). I’d absolutely advise against this service at this point. There are other alternatives, both mobile and it’s sad that it cost less to meet someone in person at this point.

    You only get help if you pay extra.
  • Don’t use this app!!!

    By stich888
    This is the WORST thing you can do to file taxes. They advertised everywhere that it was free. I filled out all my information myself for me to find out until the very end that I needed to upgrade. Then a $49 fee was added at the end for basically copying & pasting everything from federal to state. At the very end, another $49 fee was added, which wasn’t very clear what is was for. It costed an additional $49 if I wanted to talk to someone for help. This is insane!! Just go to your local tax person! I’m more bad about the fact that I wasted time to fill out everything only to find out in the end it was going to cost me $200 to file when I have a simple W2 form!
  • I don’t recommend this app to anyone

    By bmania72
    My first go around with turbo tax what a shame .... they clearly make it so that everything is automatic which is great until u wanna talk to an actual representative about why it only gave a deluxe version and did not in any way shape or form show me I could pay only 40 bucks for the cheaper version y’all just lost a customer and when I was asking the customer service person he tried just blaming it on me u guys are full of it
  • Works

    By cfanaic
    It works, but it’s important to remember that Intuit spends millions of dollars in lobbying to fight any effort to make filing taxes easier. In fact, they do everything in their power to make the tax code more complicated, thus requiring average citizens to buy Turbo Tax in order to do their taxes, which makes Turbo Tax a scam. Crony capitalism and corruption at its finest.
  • Bad business

    By Doc 10ghk
    Bad business . Fraud
  • Customer service calls take forever

    By BPSK600
    They like to take your money but when you want a product refund they don’t like to give it back and try everything to convince you to keep the service and won’t give you a refund unless you beg for it, the customer service line puts you on hold forever too
  • Shady. Last resort

    By dontgetattachedtotheporpoise
    I was super late filing my taxes this year and very stressed about it which is the only reason I used this. The app itself is fine but the marketing and ethics of this company are Shady as Hekk. Obviously the app is not free, it’s not designed to be free, and they will never let you file your taxes for free. I was prompted to purchase the Deluxe Package ($50+) to access a deduction and after I upgraded, I no longer qualified. And then I had to “upgrade” again for a deduction I actually expected to have. Altogether it cost me, a single, dependent-free, non-home-owning individual $144 to file. Plan ahead and do your taxes for FREE by hand. Or find a local company and pay a little extra for an accountant that might have an incentive to care about you. Or offer you real advice. Or move to a country where you don’t HAVE to file returns because the government tracks the data your employer sends them and you can just review their numbers at the end of the year and request corrections as needed.
  • Great for filing free documents

    Wasted an hour of my life just to find out I have to upgrade because I contributed to a HSA. I’ll find another app, thanks
