Re: It's Tax Season

I'll be first to say thanks for the offer. A question. how does it stack up against Tax Act? I've used Tax Act for several years now and have always wondered if the other programs were any better.

I have used Turbo Tax for years and have been very, very happy with it. My wife was using Tax Act prior to our marriage and says Turbo Tax blows Tax Act away.

Re: It's Tax Season

Unfortunately for me, I bought my software last weekend at Costco and did my taxes this morning.

Great product and easy to use!

Re: It's Tax Season

I started using TurboTax years before I began working for Intuit, and I must say that the software has evolved quite a bit over the years.
Sorry, I cannot compare it to Tax Act as I have never used it, nor have I used the H&R Block software.

Re: It's Tax Season

I started with TurboTax in 1996, but was disturbed with the amount they charged for the State Tax addition at the time, as much or than I had paid for the initial package. When Tax Cut offered free State in 1998 I switched. I have used Tax Cut for 12 years, and it is great. (It has been renamed this year to "H. R. Block At Home"). It is usually less to purchase than TurboTax too, and now comes with 5 free e-files.

I cannot compare it with any other software though, because it has been so long since using TurboTax. I would imagine that they are so close as to make little to no difference which one uses.

Since moving to Tennessee, I no longer need State software, No income tax here. Sales tax is nearly 10% though!

In N.C. income tax can be as high as 8 1/4 % and in the county I live in depending on what you buy the sales tax can be up to 9.5 %. And then we have to pay personal property taxes to the city & county for vehicles,trailers & toys. Mine adds up to about $1,500 each year just to have my cars,bike & boat.

When we decided to move back east from San Diego, our first choice was the Asheville area, but after looking for a few months decided that it was just too expensive because of all the taxes, plus we wanted to be near mountains and lakes. The little lake area in the southwest NC area were way too expensive. That is why we started looking on the other side of the mountains, and the Knoxville area won out. A lot more lakes, and reasonable prices. The personal property taxes were MUCH lower. We still like the Asheville area though.

Re: It's Tax Season

Thanks Gilles - much appreciated. I use Turbo Tax.

(but I own stock in H&R Block - I like 800 lb. gorillas in this economy...)

I think Jackson Hewitt is about to be toast - I understand they just lost a huge amount of financing - just in time for tax refund season.

Re: It's Tax Season

OK, guys, I'll bite: I have used an EA, for many years, that specializes in police/fire, because of the complexity of the return. How do you know when your tax program is "in" over it's head? Do you have to compare it to returns filled by your financial professional to test it?

Jay, I would think that year after year you learned how your tax guy did your return so you now have an idea of what to do. Try Turbo Tax; it is free, or at least until you need to print and/or e-file depending on the version. See if you feel comfortable with your deductions. If not then you can go back to your comfort zone and use the person who is already familiar with your specific situation. It is all about getting the biggest refund after all..! More farkles!!!

And one of the many nice things about Turbo Tax is it will walk you through every step of the way if you like, so you can have a look at each deduction available and see if you qualify. It also offers help guides through out to answer questions you may have. I find Turbo Taxt to be an easy and painless process.

Ok Gilles, just for shits and giggles, I'll try that sometime. Thanks.

Re: It's Tax Season

OK, I'll bite. I've always managed to do my own Federal Taxes. Didn't seem to be that
tough a job, albeit a few hours to pull together all the numbers. Does a product like this
really get you more deductions?

Feel free to use your abacus and the free forms from the post office.
But Turbo Tax is free for simple federal returns, so you have nothing to loose. All calculations are accurate. Even e-filing is free. You only have to pay if you need schedules, or to file a state return. That is when the discount comes in handy.
