About 10 years ago I went to H&R Block and after spending 3 hours and $300 there I realized that the only thing they do is answer questions their application asks. I've been a happy TurboTax user ever since.

The fact that these folks would publish an update the day before our tax returns are due is total BULL****!

Also, those of you that have already filed your taxes (I have!), DO NOT UPDATE THE INSTALLED APPLICATION!!!! Once I file I no longer apply updates. If there's a problem with my return, well IRS, here's the TurboTax I used to file my return. Not sure it would help, but at least it's a start.

I worked for a tax company, they update program's all the time no matter the time of year. The IRS doesn't care what version of software you used, they only care if you followed the law.

An important patch in the final hours before filing deadline is inexcusable.

These people need to go away -- or gain a sense of mission.

there are always patches even after the deadline passes. if you still have TT2012 installed try opening that today. I'm sure you will see there is an update.
i'm guessing that none of the tax law data is changed but rather just crashy bugs in the software have been fixed.
in the case of the update today i believe they updated the ssl keys that are used.

Wow... A patch the day (literally) before Taxes are Dues. Amazing. That's reason enough to never use this client.

TurboTax is even slimier than I thought.

Google "astroturf campaign designed to keep filing your taxes a hassle."

2013 TurboTax for Home & Business is a buggy piece of cr@p. Seriously. I launch the program, it opens my data file and declares no updates. Then it freezes. I can't dismiss the update window, I can't continue on with entering my data. Intuit is the worst software developer on earth. First they keep shoveling buggy versions of Quicken year after year, now they are following up with worse and worse versions of TurboTax each year.

TurboTax is up to version 2013.r11.002 as of today.
I'm not sure if MacUpdate bothers to follow the (sometimes) daily updates to the program during the tax season. Thanks.

R19 fixes the issue Box 5 Amount Doubled When Entering 2 CSA-1099-Rs.

In addition, R19 incorporates all items from the previous releases.

I saw no reason to install this update because like everyone, my 2012 taxes were filed months ago. I did anyway, for whatever reason. Very shortly afterward I get an email from Intuit, supposedly regarding privacy issues. I think the update was only a ploy for information.

Gave up on TurboTax when they tried to ram through payment for every return filed and switched to TaxCut. Decided to try TurboTax 2012 this year due to a more complicated return. First, the company falsely advertises the ability to import H&R Block TaxCut files via pdf. However, it doesn't work and hasn't from day 1 when the 2012 version was released. After 6 weeks of repeatedly contacting them, they basically said to enter things manually as they were not going to fix this known issue. Yet they never stopped advertising that feature. This is just plain negligence by Intuit.

Second, no information is provided on any of the updates. The update just released on 29Mar doesn't even tell you what was fixed, patched, or changed and if it would have any impact on a return already filed.

Finally, they keep pushing via their ads different (and more expensive) versions even though they have no applicability to your current tax filing status or situation.

TurboTax is better at Schedule C forms and the 2106. It continually came up with different results for the AMT than TaxCut, even though the data was the same. Manually doing it leads me to trust TaxCut over TurboTax. TurboTax did not have the embarrassing problem with forms that TaxCut did this year, so I reverted back to TurboTax (after having to manually enter all 2011 information needed for 2012 since IMPORT does not work).

Overall the continued lack of support for Mac users or fixing problems that are known to exist is why I rated the program poorly. It's greatest strength is the ease of use and ability to switch between the interview and the form, something TaxCut is very, very weak in (you often can't manually enter information in a form).

Warning. Intuit is a company you shouldn't trust with your private information. They are an unethical company and should be boycotted. Please read this exposé of this company who has gone out of its way to hurt the American public for its own greed:


Why would you trust this unethical company with some of your most private data?

While I agree that you shouldn't trust Intuit, it's hardly a review of a product. If you're not using it, please use a comment to tell us about it instead.


Bousozoku, I've used it in the past and rated it accordingly. I will not be using it again, however, because I could never trust this kind of corrupt, unethical company with my private information.

That fact alone is enough to give this product the lowest possible rating.
