Summary: I have used this program for the last four years and am extremely satisfied with it. With the interview style, it will automatically do calculations and put the results where they are required. Will also allow the user to insert their figures directly in the forms.
Pros: Ease of use and interview type setup.
Cons: The need to check back online for the final updates
Summary: When I think of taxes, I tense up. I usually procrastinate, so the problem is concentrated. TurboTax allowed me to file my taxes with ease, and have the privacy I could never have with a preparer. I will use this product this year also.
Summary: If you own rental real estate, you know that over the years, you have dozens of depreciable improvements. If you enter these into your Turbotax for 2000, your copy of Turbotax for 2001 will retrieve all of these for 2000 and process them accordingly for 2001.
Pros: It keeps track of depreciation from year to year.
Pros: Walks you through each step and does all of the calculations and determinations for you. Since I am a 1099 Contractor, my taxes are more complicated. The Home and Business version helped me find every deduction possible for business expenses. I would never choose any other software.
Cons: Updates nearly every time you start the program, but it's worth it to stay up to date on tax codes.
