TurboTax Premier 2018 Ease Of Use

TurboTax has also added a Tax Reform Center with a number of helpful and well-written articles covering the most common aspects of the taxes reform bill that is going into effect for the 2018 tax year, such as changes to the standard deduction, home mortgage and state/local tax deductions, tax rates and brackets, family issues, changes for self-employed people, and more.

However, the features that I appreciate most about TurboTax Premier 2018 are the easy import options. You can import W-2 forms using a photo application, and TurboTax connects with a variety of banks and investment institutions to import your 1099-INT and 1099-DIV forms.

Self-employed people or landlords who use QuickBooks to run their business will appreciate the ease with which they can import income and expenses for their business.

However, TurboTax has an impressive community of users who answer some surprisingly complex questions. If you ever Google a tax question, TurboTax’s community likely comes up as a top answer.

Once again, TurboTax is well ahead of the curve when it comes to ease of use. The navigation keeps most users from becoming confused, and they have built in definitions to help clarify murky sections of the tax code. TurboTax makes their software easy to use by keeping the language at an eighth-grade level.

One feature that has historically separated TurboTax from the pack is the unprecedented access to tax and product advice for all paying customers.

To receive this kind of help you need to pay $80 extra (on top of whatever product you are already purchasing) for TurboTaxLive. If you do pay for this service, you’ll be able to speak to a tax specialist onscreen through video interface, which I’ll admit is a pretty cool upgrade over talking to someone on the phone!
Unfortunately, TurboTax no longer offers live guidance to all its clients. TurboTax Premier 2018 allows all users to submit queries to the TurboTax forums, but you have to pay extra to get one-on-one product help from a TurboTax Premier 2018 specialist.

TurboTax Premier 2018 Knowledge Base

TurboTax’s knowledge articles are very focused on how to enter information in the software system. These are important and well-written articles, but they lack some of the depth that other top software companies provide.

    It’s too early to give a good review of TurboTax 2018 Premier, but that’s to be expected. From what forms I’ve been able to start so far, I expect the product will be just as good as it has been over the past several years. To that end, I’m giving it an early 5 stars.

    I did experience a problem, however, when running the installer program. Immediately after launching the installer I was presented with a window which said “We’re unable to install TurboTax 2018 on your computer”. The message went on to say that my computer’s operating system was not supported. Further, it said I would need to upgrade my system to either Windows 7, 8, or 10. Well… I’m running Windows 10 with all of the current updates. So that was puzzling. After several minutes of searching the internet I came across a suggestion to modify the Windows compatibility setting for the TurboTax installer program. So, I modified the compatibility setting to Windows 8. This worked. The installer program then successfully installed TurboTax 2018.

    Install problem solved.

    I used to use TurboTax years ago and got mad at Intuit, so for the last several years I have used TaxCut. But this year, to be candid, TaxCut was terrible. I had a rental home and it walked me up to a cliff and pushed me off. And even though they promise assistance, TaxCut makes you go to a retailer and pay about $59. So what’s the benefit in that? So I decided to try TurboTax again, and not only did it solve my tax issue, but it was far easier to understand (and I am an accountant by education), and answered questions when you needed answers – instead of what TaxCut does: Referring you to the IRS tax website.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase, and am officially back. BTW, Turbo converts data from your TaxCut files so you can import all your details.

    New/Lower pricing makes the 2018 Turbo tax a no brainer. If you have used Turbo Tax before, you’ll find that 2018 installs and sets up quickly, drawing a lot of details from prior-year tax returns. 2018 does seem to reflect what I know of the recent changes to the tax law, including the doubling of the standard deduction.

    I have been using HRBlock for years. I bought it again this year but did not import some data. The data import require a few hours. To make sure my data was correct after 800 entries. I use TurboTax and I was able to do the same in one afternoon with almost no manual entry. The UI is a bit better on TurboTax (I wish some buttons to move to the next screen appear on the top and bottom as to avoid scrolling). TurboTax UI seems more modern than HRBlock. The result of the calculations was the exactly the same. I like to purchase from Amazon because it was way cheaper than TurboTax site itself.

    I was concerned before I downloaded TurboTax Premier for PC (using Windows 7) because of the not insignificant number of 1-star reviews, mainly for issues of crashing. Luckily, I had no such problems, and the software performed perfectly. I was actually using it this year to compare to the return from my tax preparer, since I hope to do it totally on my own with TurboTax next year. At first, there seemed to be a glaring error in what TurboTax produced, but it turned out that it was TurboTax that was correct and the return from my preparer was incorrect, due to a mis-scan of a single number from a 1099. My preparer is fixing my return, and it wouldn’t have been caught except for TurboTax. Once adjusting for the error, the return prepared by TurboTax matches the one from my preparer, so I now have confidence in it (and my ability to enter data into it). I’m sorry for the people who haven’t had good results, but luckily it worked very well for me.

    If you use Robinhood to do stock trading like I do, you will definitely be glad you have TurboTax Premier. The other version of TurboTax doesn’t support importing stock trades from Robinhood so make sure you get the right version! I day trade a lot and sometimes go over 2000 transactions of trades. Imagine sitting there and punching in each trade one by one. No wonder CPA charges a lot for it! I save tons of money from doing my taxes each year and honestly, the fact that TurboTax imports my stock trades is enough to earn it a 5/5. However, the software itself is really easy to use and walks you through every step of the way! Not only that, but the return I get from using it exceeds that of my CPA I’ve used in the past. Thank you for making my life easier TurboTax!

    I have successfully and happily used Turbotax since 2008. This year, I happened to read quite a few ‘scary’ reviews of the 2018 version – and after much thought, decided to try H&R Block’s software instead.
    2 days later I finally gave up and uninstalled it, for a variety of reasons that I won’t go into here.
    I bought Turbotax Premier/download, despite the negative reviews.
    2 days later I am done with my taxes and totally happy! I didn’t have ANY issues.
    So what accounts for all the problems others had? We know the T.T. software is the same, so the only variable is the hardware/software people are using. I’m wondering if some/most of the issues relate to the state of people’s laptops/desktops… their operating system and/or habits?
    I run Windows 10 and am very methodical about taking care of my laptop: keep all software up-to-date, clear caches every night before shutting down, run disk/registry cleaners and full system scans weekly.
    On the one hand, this seems like too easy an explanation – but I can’t come up with any other.
    sign me: ‘still loving Turbotax’!

    Answering the interview questions results in easy to fill the forms format in an error free method. Auto-carry-over to next year minimizes startup time each year. TurboTax “Forum” provides readily understandable interpretation of IRS tax code questions.

    This product is fantastic! You don’t have to be a tax expert – because Intuit’s TurboTax takes all the guess-work, tax-law research, investigating, and CPA-level education out of the equation. They make it very simple to walk through and compete your taxes – and know that you are getting the maximum refund available. I have some complex situations, with Rental Property, self-employment deductions, education costs with kids in college, sizable donations, multiple incomes (including driving for Uber), investments, etc, etc….. And TurboTax just walked me through each scenario – and explained everything, and provided links for more detailed tax-law info – so I just had to plug in the numbers – and voila!! Max refund! Great product.

    I have used Turbo Tax for years and have always been happy with it. This was my first time using it for a complex tax situation. I ran into some problems where I believe my bank did not prepare a tax form correctly. I kept getting an error when entering it into Turbo Tax. I spent almost an hour with a support person who brought on a CPA who finally figured out how to make the appropriate entry. I couldn’t ask for better support; especially considering the fact that the bank screwed up my report.

    I’m a Turbo-Tax fan; have used it for quite a few years now. I like how it walks me through the return (inevitably coming up with something I would have otherwise forgotten), and the clarity of its final forms and double-checking mechanism. VERY happy with Turbo-Tax… and here we are, at another tax-time of year already!!

    I bought the product because I was convinced the arrogant tax preparer I have been using for several years did not consider an aspect of my finances. I wanted to run a comparison and file an amended return if necessary. I was correct about the former point and also found that he mischaracterized an item from my state return as income on the federal return. So the $ spent has been worth it so far. Refund will increase and federal changes will pass down to 2 state returns. It’s certainly time consuming but if you’re patient it’s worth the time spent.

    I’ve been using turbotax tax for years. It’s ok. But all turbotax has issue of accuracy. If I put in same information using a new tax payer return. I almost always get a different calculation. I chose the one that is closest to what I know my taxes would be. All turbotax does that. I’ve been using it for over 12 years. No audits yet. So I would assume its within acceptable accuracy or margin of error.

    I’ve actually enjoyed using this software over the past several years, and it seems better and better each year.

    Possibly it seems excellent because I’m used to it, and really haven’t compared it with other programs. But for this taxpayer, it has served me well as I have simplified my life over the past eight years after my wife of 42 years died.

    I’ve been using TurboTax since it was developed. With just a minimum of financial organization, this program takes the work and worry out of tax preparation. I trust it to compute my taxes fairly and to do the job with the least amount of effort. If you need an accountant or tax lawyer, Good For You! Otherwise, do your own taxes .

    It took no more than two hours, from the purchase and download of Turbo Tax, to the electronic submission of my taxes to Federal and State, all from the comfort of my home. I am watching for my direct deposit refund to appear while people I know are waiting for their tax preparers to finish their job. It helps that I use Turbo Tax every year and Turbo Tax can use some of the data from previous years to help populate the forms.

    Have used Turbotax for years and this is the first I’ve needed the Premier addition. Funny how the download version cost more than if I had them mail me a CD. But, I guess that’s what the market demands when computers rarely have CD drives anymore

    My tax return was on extension until Oct. 15th, so this was a late-season purchase. Because of this, there were many updates included for the changes in our tax code. I used the Q and A to be certain I hadn’t missed any deductions, and it was very easy to use.
