Nothing is certain but death and taxes - check that, nothing is certain but death, taxes, and TurboTax is going to cost more than it did the previous year with little positive improvement. Yeah, I'm frustrated! I use Quicken therefore I use its family member TurboTax.

I thought the 2006 tax year product was much more intuitive to use, at least using the tax interview. I guess they were tried a little too hard to improve.

What did I like?

TurboTax remain a solid program to guide the user through the not-so-pleasant process of preparing and filing your taxes.


It was difficult to find the automatic extension request form. You better know what that form number is. Previous years it was extremely easy to find in several different places

The "improved" quicken import was not as seamless as before. In fact, in previous years more detail was transferred in compared to summary level detail this year.

The price keeps creeping up and up. Especially when you add in the filing fees - rebated in early years. At 89 + 15 it is almost at the edge of my tolerance. An accountant may be in my future.
