This is a terrible app. I am not able to login on my phone or IPad, especially after changing my password. Useless app.
To many hold ups

MN state Department of Revenue slows down returns that were filed from TurboTax. I’m on 90+ days & it hasn’t left the processing stage. If you want your return quick just go to H&R Block; the DoR trusts them.
HCDoyle on 5/22/2018
I see some good and bad comments about TurboTax and I am all for the good! TurboTax is by far the only company that offers so much flexibility by providing their services at a reasonable price and they made sure that they make it available through a mobile app, online and installing the software on a desktop, this is so you can work on your return and check your return wherever you are. This company is constantly improving their services with tax payers in mind. Most of us want to get the most refunds we could get but most times most people want to get it for free, then when something goes wrong you blame the vendor?! Now, if you get confused, call the customer service and get help! Some are dumb, why would you use a paid edition when you know you are going to be charged?! When you know you are being charged for the edition you used why would you blame the company, they are not the once clicking and making a choice, it is YOU! We buy products online left and right, and most times we don’t read the fine prints before we agree and submit our orders. Then we have the nerve to complain, LOL! This company offers to have your fees deducted from your refund, where else would you get that good deal?! This company lets you file your federal returns for free, and you just pay the State filing fee, where would you get a deal like that?! Basically, you used their forms, everything laid out so easy, you just answer the questions, you just have to put all your information in and you’re done, easy peasy! Don’t you think it is right to pay them?! People I hope y’all realize that TurboTax is a TAX PREPARATION software, you are responsible for the things you put in your tax return, you are responsible for transmitting your returns and making sure they are sent. Now if you are not happy, go to a tax preparer or an accountant and pay thousands of dollars just to prepare your taxes! TurboTax is not your personal tax preparer, you prepare your own taxes, they supply the software for you to use! Depending on your tax situation, they even offer it for free! And to those people who are complaining that they are charged money for the service, of course you will be charged because you used the service! Now it is your responsibility to pay for it when it is due! If you are getting thousands in refund, isn’t it right to pay the fees for the product that made it possible for you to get your taxes filed and for you to be able to get your refund?!! TURBOTAX, thank you for all that you do! I have always recommended your products to family and friends! More power!
Very unsatisfied never again
tyshity on 5/21/2018
I just don’t understand , I was recommended from several friends to use TurboTax . I filed March 18th and everything says accepted . I checked my information on irs.gov it is now may 21st and everything says still processing I don’t understand what is going on ??? And why is my refund taking so long . I just want my money please
Demanding a refund!
VampireKitties on 5/13/2018
Had so many bugs not fixed on tax day. I had used it months earlier to get an idea of what my refund would be but when I found out I would owe money I decided to wait until I had the money before filling. On tax day it said I owed $0 and refund was $0. I got all the way to the end and it said I was ineligible to digitally file my Federal and would have to print it off and mail it to the IRS instead!?? Every time you clicked the link to print the federal the app cycled you through the last 2 or 3 pages. I was unable to file AFTER I already paid $107 to TurboTax! I didn’t have time so I started over with the H&R app instead, was easy accurate and not glitchy as heck. I called my bank immediately to try and cancel the payment but was told because I couldn’t go to my bank that same day I’d have to work with TurboTax to get my money back. I’ve been trying to research how to get my money back while I wait till Monday when their call hours are. From what I’ve read you can’t get your money back from TurboTax after it’s already been paid. I’ll be demanding TurboTax repay me the $107 I paid to file. Wish me luck and never use TurboTax; it’s honestly easier to do it by hand.

10+ Stars for this HIGHLY SATISFIED TURBOTAX USER!!(1st Time user)
Mommabear25_AO on 5/6/2018
This was my FIRST YEAR doing taxes. I loved using TurboTax!! I am HIGGGHHHLY & COMPLETELY SATISFIED, with my 2017 federal & state taxes!! I have heard so many negative reviews and responses about another tax competitor and company H(and maybe) •ARE•BALL-BUSTER!! SO WHEN I GOT MY TAX RETURN INFORMATION FROM MY TWO EMPLOYERS—I immediately thought and decided that I was going to be filing with TurboTax. I am going to be using TurboTax every year from now on! The customer service that I received from the TurboTax specialists, is hand down legit and they are just...amazing at what they do and they definitely have the A+ quality when it comes to customer service. They were very friendly, courteous, nice and hands-down awesome. There was not one time where I had any doubts and any concerns when it came to what I needed help with. Thank you VERY MUCH TURBOTAX TEAM!! Your customer service is just-the bomb diggity!!!

Downloaded the app but I have to now delete it cuz since I used the “cheap” turbo tax I cannot use the app I have to use the “online” one a little disappointed but whatever thanks for everything.

This is awesome!!
Thought it was free to file, but it’s NOT!!
Madden Metal on 4/25/2018
Turbo tax charged me $110. I was aware of $39.99 fee for state returns. I don’t know why was I charged the rest of the amount. No matter, how hard I tried, I wasn’t able to file my taxes without that $59.99 fee. It was a tax refund for an internship, and turbo tax took almost 10-20% away without even explaining how that deluxe fee was charged when they said filing taxes would be free!
Rating based mostly on customer service

Edit: The Intuit team heard my issues and very quickly resolved them. I guess I just encountered lots of bugs this time around.

Intuit is a scam!
disgruntled app downloader on 4/19/2018
This app is poorly made and waits till you get most way through to tell you that you need the $59 deal, you know, because you actually had a job last year... I’m getting $34 back, no I don’t want the $59 deluxe deal just to file a 1040EZ! Once you select deluxe, there is literally no way to undo it from the app. I had to go to the website to clear and start over. Now half way through it’s locked up and I can continue. TurboTax used to be free, then Intuit bought it and turned it into a bait and switch cash grab. Edit; I used a different service (for free) because evidently if your employer offered any options whatsoever, like a health savings plan in my case, TurboTax waits till you’ve done everything else to notice they just simply can’t process it without a $60-100 plan. Oddly enough every other tax program has found a way. Stay away from intuit products, you’ll get better service, and quality for far cheaper anywhere else.
Pain in the…
r3b3cki on 4/19/2018
Wow I went to file my sons taxes for him and what a royal pain in the butt at the end making me think this whole thing is free to file and how to end up paying money to file them. False advertisement, The commercials made it seem easy live help is included with this you need to pay to talk to a live person and not automatic response with a computer. And it just gets worse from there I don’t think I will ever use TurboTax ever again first and last time!
Does actually give tax returns
Anna_M123 on 4/18/2018
Filed my taxes with them, they said they sent it and everything, never received it. Honestly didn’t even care that much but when I tried to get my transcripts from them, I couldn’t. Live help is not helpful at call. They have no customer service and I had to go through the actual IRS to get the transcripts because they want you to pay 50 bucks for nothing, overall just don’t use them!
Beyond frustrating.
EggMyHouse on 4/18/2018
My return kept getting rejected after correcting and recorrecting it in every way. Waste of time and money.
DanteKalil on 4/18/2018
I see now that a lot of other people have had problems with hidden fees and being forced to pay to file your taxes on a “free” tax filing. I had the same issue with hidden fees that I did not click on and they ended up taking $120 out from my $440 tax return👍 I already get robbed by the government and now that I’m getting a little of that money back turbo tax robs me aswell. I will not be using this app again. It’s cheaper to use a professional and you get more money back on your return aswell.
So far so good
Tretaylor on 4/18/2018
Doing my taxes so far so good everything’s been smooth and the interface is nice.
White screen upon file if fed return.

Good App for College Kids
PoshPeacock on 4/18/2018
This is the first year that I’ve filed my taxes by myself. The Turbo Tax app made the process really fast and simple, and I appreciate that. My only qualm about the service regards the advertising. On television and online, Turbo Tax service is advertised as free, but it isn’t. There’s a $29.99 fee for filing federal and state together and another $39.99 fee if you choose to have them deduct the fee straight from your return. I was a little taken aback by that, but not enough to stop using this service. In my opinion, using the Turbo Tax app is still cheaper than going to a traditional tax preparer and I would recommend it to any one of my friends or anyone whose tax information is minimal. Thank you Turbo Tax!!
Saves my info but costs $30 to access
midnes4 on 4/17/2018
Crap software.
So easy!
Dirrty Craig on 4/17/2018
I couldn’t be happier with my experience. I’ve used Turbotax before on my Macs (years ago) but this is the first time I’ve done it on the iPad. These apps have come a long way. I did my complicated self employed (musician) taxes with 1099s etc, and my wife’s W2 in under an hour including deductions etc... Fantastic from start to finish. If you buy the self employed version you also get quick books self employed for free which is a great value. I couldn’t get the code to redeem that to work but I assume it’s because their servers are busy from the last minute filers. Lastly, they sent emails with updates on the status of my return. It was accepted via efile and I’m good to go!
This worst app I’ve ever downloaded.
ThisIsGettingWeird on 4/17/2018
I don’t know how this has such a high rating. It is the worst, least helpful tax return system I’ve ever seen. I hope nobody seriously pays these guys the money they beg for in the app. Just be gone.
Stupid Popup
OneNaerys on 4/17/2018
I would give five stars if it didn’t repeatedly pop up asking for a star rating WHILE I AM TRYING TO DO MY TAXES!
Easy taxes

Was good...not now
Elric007 on 4/17/2018
I used TurboTax for a long time...was always good and reliable...taxes in 15 minutes. But these updates have given me major login issues that past 2 years and it was even worse this time. Customer service is a joke now too. They don't even care...just told me to try a different tax app....lol...wow. So ya, I did just that...Get the hr block app instead.

No Surprises!!!
Mb black13 on 4/17/2018
I thought the federal tax returns were free to send but SURPRISE! If you’re not paying attention it says free to prepare. So if you’re broke or you know you owe these federal pricks then find a friend or family member to help you do your taxes or go to your local church or somewhere they won’t beat you out of your money. It’s bad enough we have to pay taxes, but then you have to pay to send them too! Absolutely ridiculous! ✌🏽
Advertised as free, not free at all
Creative nicknam on 4/17/2018
TurboTax was popping up in my email, they advertised to me through amazon, mint, many other apps that I use that it would be FREE. I file my taxes and they slap me with over 200$ in fees. I was able to get one of the 50$ fees removed, but they charged me 120$ for a self employed plan and I’m not self employed. I tried getting help on figuring this out but was just rerouted over and over again to useless pages that had nothing to do with my situation. Lost most of what I would’ve gotten returned to me. Felt like a scam, I will not be filing with them again.
angel🌙 on 4/17/2018
So in order to have my info from last year automatically filled out I have to pay $30? Wow lol what a scam I can see why people are so displeased with this app! Do your taxes, for fast and easy for free! (Unless you actually want it to be fast and easy then you need to pay $$$)

1099-G Fail
evonbart on 4/16/2018
My main complaint during the ‘interview’ is the pretty standard prior year state refund form 1099-G amount was not clearly requested. Luckily I caught it, but this was after the return was filed and I had to file a paper 1040X Amended return to pay the difference. On the IRS form it is a very obvious line item so TurboTax needs do a better job with this routinely entered amount.
SOB didn’t let me copy last years data !

srb005 on 4/16/2018
I have complicated taxes. I love turbo tax. I have no problem getting help by phone. Perhaps the whiners are really the NC residents trying to get the child tax credit illegally, which holds us all up. I dunno. Pretty straight forward to me.
Used it for 7 years, this is the last
stuartsu on 4/16/2018
There is no explanation too much of the program. It used to be better. This year in particular, you have this one click that doesn’t explain to you that if you click it you will have to pay an extra $179 (and there are more fees coming. It looks like it was just a click through button. You don’t know the big hit is coming though until you get to file and by then, too late; you can’t take it off. Yuck. For this much money, I will pay someone else to do my taxes for me!
The best
vin cin so on 4/16/2018
I love this app made it easy for me to file my taxes
Absolute worst
92StangGT on 4/16/2018
Tried to file my taxes through this app, federal went fine but when it came to state they wanted to charge me $29.99. When I went through the help process all it did was show me faq’s with the option to talk to a live rep, BUT; in order to talk to a live rep you need to sign up for a$30 service. No thank you. Another app advertised as free but really pay to use. Never using TurboTax again
ThatsSoPeyton on 4/16/2018
TurboTax promised that I could have “live help”. After hours and hours of waiting (all while being promised a 5-minute wait time) I can assure you THERE IS NO “live help”! You’ll have better luck getting live help from the DMV.
NomadicEndeavor on 4/16/2018
Non stop freezing, blank screens, upselling tactics, and generally clunky app. I’ve tried for 3 days to file through the app and have gotten nowhere. So beyond frustrated that they don’t fix these bugs. Blank screen? Halfway through filing? And then retains NONE of the info you entered? Trash, man. Trash.

Turbo tax is so easy and to top it off its free. Thanks Turbo tax.
Your app is really sucking

Pls stop asking for reviews
Itartistpdf on 4/16/2018
Seriously this is annoying while dealing with sensitive info like taxes. I’ve dismissed twice in the process of filling out three pages of info. STAHP.
Very Expensive!
girlfriday414 on 4/16/2018
If you have one single 1040 and one state then it’s worth it but every additional state is $45!!! $45 for one single state is the same price as the deluxe that includes federal and state! Plus an another $24.99 to e-file each additional state. That’s a total of $70 to file for every additional state that you received a wage from!!! You also have to pay before you e-file so if you pay the $45 and your return for the additional state totals less than $45 then you’re really screwed and it wasn’t worth it at all!
‘Free’ cost me $119 😡
Gooolay78 on 4/16/2018
Said federal was free. At the very end it changes to $119 and says at the bottom “turbotax has the right to change or cancel this offer at any time”.
Really happy
Katherineanf 💚💚 on 4/15/2018
I was nervous about using TurboTax. I have always heard good things about this but this year the reviews have been really low so I didn’t want to try it. I downloaded another app to file taxes but it was trying to charge me so I used TurboTax to see if it’d say the same thing. It didn’t and I liked the way it walked me through every step. It made filing taxes so easy and fast. It was my first time filing and I’m glad I did it with TurboTax.
