It can't get much simpler than this.

  • Jan 23, 2007

This will be my 6th year of preparing my taxes with Turbo Tax, and from my initial experience with this version it won't be my last.

The software installs cleanly and quickly, with a minimum of fuss. And the user interface with it's easy to understand interview format couldn't be better. It's quite the hoot to watch your refund status change as you enter each new piece of information (even if it goes from refund to "you owe"). If you need help, there are definitions and help aplenty. If you're more proficient than me, you can even skip the interview and go directly to the forms.

For me though, the biggest advantage of all comes from the time I save doing my state taxes (please, let's not get into a debate on state income taxes, okay?). Within 5 minutes of completing my Federal return, the state return is done and I'm ready to get on with life again.
