Highly discourage if you invest

This app is great for standard working income and I have used it for years for that purpose, but very quickly the app falls short if you are trading often in stocks or other forms of frequent trade investment. There is an extra charge for filing with trading income that you then have to painstakingly manually enter, despite the data being very clear and concise on all tax documentation. For me this very extremely takes away from the core purpose of the app; to make filing your taxes quicker and easier. So in this regard it falls very short.

Having to constantly switch back and fourth between this app and a PDF of your tax doc to copy and paste every date and amount takes away also from the security of being sure that your taxes are being done correctly, as you are at that point, for the most part, just doing it yourself. AND being charged an extra 70 dollars to do so. This with the fact that the app constantly closes in the background while you try to copy over your tax info, forcing you to reload the app, and go back through several menus before you can actually begin entering your tax info again. It would seem to take a good hour to enter in roughly 20 trades with having to copy over, amount, cost, proceeds and 2 dates one at a time for every single trade.

For this reason I have to highly discourage this for any new or also experienced traders and investors thinking that this will make filing easier. It will be very time consuming.

Not free, no help when the IRS sends a letter, and still waiting for refund four months later

I used the TurboTax app to file my refund in early February. The app was relatively easy to use, but it did get old going in circles sometimes. Unfortunately, the free option really is not usable. If you have to file state taxes like just about everyone, then you will have to pay $40 per state. If you’re a college student in another state like me, that means two states so $80. Of course, no student discount. Honestly, that was not too bad since I was supposed to get a lot back.
Unfortunately, that was not what happened. I did get some from one the state returns, but that was it. The IRS sent a letter for a health insurance form that didn’t even apply to me. If you want help with that, guess what? It will cost you even more money! At that point, I wasn’t paying TurboTax any more so I went off on my own. Eventually I got it figured out, but not without massive disruption to my school work. None of that help was thanks to TurboTax which sends you to FAQs that don’t really apply.
They have online discussions which appear to have many people with the same problem. This program is made to look easy- and it is at first- but the headache it causes later is not worth it. Never had trouble like this with H&R Block so I think I’ll go back to them next year. Whatever you do, don’t use TurboTax. It is seriously not worth it. Still waiting for that federal tax refund BTW.

This is a joke

I used turbo tax all the time when I was younger, it used to cost very little or nothing at all. Now even what’s advertised isn’t what you pay, you click no to all the premiums and extras and still end up paying $150 to file? That’s happened to me two years in a row, the biggest and last reason I will never use turbo tax again came this year. I was out of work due to Covid-19 like so many others, unemployment is backed up, my personal life feel apart, and I was broke as can be. I was checking the IRS website daily hoping for an update on my stimulus check so I could like keep my lights on. Every time I get the message about information not available and just assumed they hadn’t processed my return yet. A month, an entire month goes by, and I check and still haven’t gotten it, and still getting the same message on the website. I thought I should check my turbo tax again, I had received emails from turbo tax just about they’re standard spam mail. I never once received anything personal, signed into my turbo tax only to see that my tax returns had been rejected. I waited a month for nothing with no notice or anything like that. I will only use an in person CPA from now one, this website is a joke. There’s a reason there’s a viral video of a 13 year old working for them.
