Customer Reviews:

  • Overpriced for download
    Decided to buy TurboTax again this year now that more than one E-file is included. For some strange reason Amazon prices the download version at $11 MORE tnan the CD version (for which they pay for shipping costs as well); makes download version a poor choice financially. Decided to buy the CD version instead and pocket the $11....more info
  • Never come back to TT -
    I don't see any much better on this Premier than normal Tax cut version that I did use on several year, they will charge you with 'premium' price if you need more than one state(the second one you must pay 35 dollars more to down load etc..-not free up to five state as I expect at premium price)
    I will back to Tax cut next year and never look back to Intuit producd. ...more info
  • "They charged me more, Bad Marketing Strategy"
    I am not happy with this purchase. As it says at the top of the page and the way it is a marketed is wrong. They charged me $69.XX and after i am done with my taxes the software allowed me to do free federal efile and changed me an extra $19.95 + tax for filing state efile. The advertisement is very misleading it says "Federal + State + Efile" If it says this way than they should not charge more money for state. I would advice please stay away from this gimmick unless you are prepared to pay more dollars for state tax filing. I would say this is a bad marketing strategy....more info
  • download does cost more, but shouldn't
    the amazon downloader worked for me. downloaded 103MB in under 3 minutes with cable broadband. installed perfectly too as it should.
    sv Memphis,TN...more info
  • Download failed
    While I always use TurboTax, and think that it is an excellent product, when I tried to download it from Amazon the download failed, despite repeated attempts.

    I don't know if it is the Amazon downloader, or the TurboTax file being incorrect, but I had to order it on CD.
    ...more info
  • Most economic option
    Tax software pricing changes almost daily, especially on Amazon. At the time I checked, the download option was slightly cheaper than the CD. That, and the fact that I didn't have to bother with a package, made it a sweet deal for me.

    The download process first makes you install the "amazon downloader"; launching that then gets you the intuit installer; launching that first installed microsoft .net on my fairly current computer (Win XP). It all went well and was over in less than 5 minutes though, despite the fact that I'm using Firefox.

    If you're still on the fence about which version to get, I recommend you check out intuit's web site. They also have an online option there, which actually makes the most sense to me.. alas, it's more expensive than the software download/install....more info
  • Amazon download utility is broken. Don't bother
    Tried to buy it. Couldn't download. The amazon download utility showed the software downloading forever. Stopped it at 400% download....more info
  • Officially hate all things Intuit
    I purchased TT Premier for several reasons; one being the "easy" handling of schedule D transactions. Let me tell you--after importing from the financial institutions it's total BS.

    Additionally, I am going through and discovering it's YET ANOTHER $39 for an additional state download. Unfortunately I file in two states.

    Overall the product seems to be dumbed down to the point it's confusing. I really wish there was a better option than this garbage. I also don't like how it's constantly trying to upsell me--don't even get me started with Quicken. That product has turned into an abomination as well.

    So long Intuit. I won't be back....more info
