2020 version ONLY works on macOS 10.14 or higher. I call BS - HRBlock and others still allow one to use earlier versions. I am not saying have it run on OS9, but c'mon.

Something wrong with Menu Bar in latest 2019 version. All of the icons are bitmapped. Anyone else having this problem? Other than that, no problems.

According to Amazon.com, requirements for Turbotax Deluxe Mac include: OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) or later and not OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) as noted here by MacUpdate. I can confirm that it will not install on 10.6.8; I haven't tried it yet on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

These people have changed for the worse. What used to be their basic program is now for only the very simple returns. You get to a point and then they tell you that for $40 more you can download the needed forms. If you buy the CD instead of downloading from them, it asks you for a "conformation number". After finally reaching a person on their line, she could not explain or find how to get a "conformation number" for me. I switched to H&R Block.

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.

An important patch in the final hours before filing deadline is inexcusable. These people need to go away -- or gain a sense of mission.

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.

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: http://www.propublica.org/article/how-the-maker-of-turbotax-fought-free-simple-tax-filing Why would you trust this unethical company with some of your most private data?

Note to MacUpdate: in the MacUpdate Desktop program, the 'current version' updates for TurboTax Deluxe 2012 (Mac) seem to be tied to the old TurboTax Deluxe 2011 (Mac) software. MacUpdate Desktop shows name: "Turbotax Deluxe 2011", installed version "2011r15.011", current version: "2012r11.011, release date: "March 7, 2013". This appears in red as out-of-date. I believe that it should show name: Turbotax Deluxe 2012 (and indicate that the software is up-to-date). Thanks

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.

A few people commented about the long time it takes to update the 2011 version. While that's true, it's really a GOOD thing for people with slow connections. The updates themselves are tiny now -- MUCH smaller than previous downloads. In spite of misleading progress messages most of the time now is spent applying the updates. In other words, these are delta updates which when have to be woven in to the existing code, which takes a while. I agree with many others -- I think the program gets better every year. Yeah, there are annoyances such as occasionally having to answer stuff you've already answered and the early versions (i.e December and January) have some unforgivable bugs but I think these are outweighed by the thoroughness of the program. I just wish they add the full feature set of the windows versions to the mac versions.
