We always get a little stressed during tax season. It can be nerve-wracking trying to gather every bit of paperwork from the previous year and I always feel like I’m forgetting something. We’d present everything we thought was relevant to our accountant, and every year she made some sort of mistake. She was a nice enough lady, but we wondered why we were paying a premium for her services.
So last year, we filed using the Turbo Tax Deluxe version and found it to be a thousand times easier. The program literally walks you through each step and helps you find every possible deduction you may qualify for. If we were unsure about a particular section or needed help, we let the Q&A section guide us.
We donate lots of household items and clothing each year, and the software comes with a helpful lookup tool to help us determine the value of our donations. It’s a real time and sanity saver.
All of the features of Turbo Tax Deluxe include:
- Transfers last year’s tax info to help ensure accuracy and save you time
- Imports W-2 and 1099 forms from over 100,000 employers and financial institutions
- Free technical support by phone
- Quickly searches for more than 350 deductions
- Gives you accurate values for your donations
- Alerts you to audit risks and offers tips to reduce your chance of an audit
This year, we were able to import last year’s return which saved us from having to hunt for the paperwork and data. We’re so pleased with this software program and at under $50.00, it’s the right price.
Their Total Assurance Guarantee makes us feel even more confident. It guarantees you’ll get the maximum refund and 100% accuracy. My accountant can’t even do that!
