  • App for IPAD: much worse.

    By IhateDTV
    I have been using Intuit Turbo Tax ever since it was only available on CDROM for IBM. Huge fan. Up until now, the software did its job almost flawlessly. I file a very simple 1040 from my IPAD with the latest IOS. The worst experience this year was trying to print a hard copy so I can compare with prior years returns. The “three bar” drop down menu does not contain any options for downloading or viewing or printing the Federal return. Again, this is the Apple IPAD app. I worked with customer service and they could not figure out how to see, preview, download, or print the return using the app (she viewed my screen and walked me through all menu selections). We could not find download or print either before I payed the $40, or after I paid. The customer service specialist eventually told me to log in thru my safari browser and go thru the menu there. THAT is the only way to print. What good is the app if it forces you to file your return without actually seeing it? I will not be using the TurboTax app anymore if this is not corrected. Some other things to mention here that should be fixed. When attempting to enter, for example, my “mortgage interest paid”, there is no obvious “entry field to click on” to enter a dollar amount. The software programmers thought a straight straight line across the screen would suffice as a data entry field. I “stumbled” on the data entry field by randomly clicking around the screen. What’s wrong with a rectangle with a “$ xxx.xx” ? Also, there should be a definitive “next” button on every screen to indicate to the user to proceed the the “next” page or section. The software left me guessing if I need to swipe left or swipe up. A couple of times I was lost and had to manually navigate back to where I left off. Very bad user interface. I did finally print a hard copy, review, and file electronically. Total file time not including State (Illinois is free online) was approximately 3 hours. I would have had it done long hand method in less than 2. Your Apple IOS App software needs help.
  • Why are you asking me for a rating before I’ve finished my taxes?

    By ZeKz
    You’re interrupting me while I’m trying to fill out my taxes. Why are you asking for me to rate you before I’m finished. Poor customer experience.
  • Wow.

    As an interaction designer myself, this is an incredibly flawless experience. Though I do have a few pointers...they gotta pay me for that though 😂
  • 5 stars until the last step

    By Hebsjoaha kalkdjdjbsbnana
    ...clearly documented issue with the CAPTCHA plug in not working. Fix it! Update: I was on Wi-Fi, then closed the app and tried again on AT&T LTE in a major urban area. iPhone 8.
  • Recommended!

    The app works great, did mine and my wife’s taxes on the tablet with no issues. The interface is very user friendly and got our refund in about 5 days! 👍🏻
  • Turbo tax max

    By Lol Owl11
    Loved the online service. Fast and easy. I paid extra so I could talk to a CPA as my husband died this year, and I wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly. He said he couldn’t help me as I was on an iPad, and not a computer. Why then does their program operate on this, or why did it not say, do not use on an iPad? Overall happy. Disappointed with CP A help. There was none for me.
  • From a+ 2017 to F 2018

    By Ginger-girl
    I’m not quite sure what happened between last year and this year but. I’m having a horrible time. Last year I used the free version. This year I opted for the more expensive version with help. I’ve requested live help twice without receiving it once. Instead I’ve been directed to pre-written directives that quite frankly just insulting to one’s intelligence....
  • So good So Far?

    By kamisamadesudesu
    I’ve been reading the reviews and I don’t really understand what is all the ruckus about the app not working. My first time doing it ever, I’m originally from Brazil and this was my first time ever doing my taxes. And far as I can see, it went smoothly and easy, obviously there where terms and words that I didn’t understand at first or what what I have the right to claim on my taxes, but seriously, the (?) option alone helped me to go through doing my taxes until the very end at, so far, 0 cost. You can call it, the Millenial luck with technology but seriously, I think I did everything just fine, I got no kids no dependents to claim, my health is perfect, I live with my parents, no dependencies, really, I got nothing to claim and still I got 1100 dollars back and some more for 6 months that I’ve been working in the company until I got my first W2. I just don’t give 5 stars bc I haven’t seen the money being deposited at my bank acct yet, so I can verify that it truly works. But as far as I can see it’s reaaally good. Besides, people go too fast to give a bad review for things that isn’t really that big of a issue, SO WHAT that the camera didn’t recognize a 4 and put it a 9, just input the numbers yourself, will take you less then 7 minutes! The rest of it it’s just answering questions. HOW CAN IT BE that people complain about little stuff like that and give 1-2 stars just bc of that! Geez. I’ll make an update once the money is deposit on my acct. I did my taxes on 02/19/2018 early morning. Just for the record so people know how fast it goes until he money comes to you.

    Reading more than 100 reviews , mostly all bad , perhaps my dad can file my taxes where he goes , he gets charged 20 bucks and still receives them back with his fed tax Lol I was so down to do them here to show him wrong but perhaps he much smarter than me 🤨🖕🏻 thanks people !!
  • Waste of Time

    By Sundlie
    Spent an hour filling in my info turning down all the “optional” offers to upgrade to deluxe. After filling everything in and taking about an hour of my time I was told I had to pay $96 for deluxe state and federal in order to file my taxes. Thanks for wasting my time. I’d rather spend another hour filing my taxes somewhere else then pay anything to TurboTax. At least now I know not to waste my time with this app next year.
