TurboTax is a Necessity

Posted Tuesday, March 31st, 2009 at 12:30 PM

Just a well-deserved endorsement for TurboTax again this year. I have always regarded TT as a great product, and even came back to it after trying out a competitor one year, but I have to say, this year’s TurboTax (online) is the slickest experience I’ve had doing taxes so far.

Thankfully, I only did taxes the old-fashioned way a couple of times back in college, before there was e-file. That was back when it only took me a half hour, filling out the 1040EZ! Now with a business, spouse and kids, mortgage, and more, TurboTax is a necessity. There is no way I would even attempt to do all the worksheets and piles of paperwork–I would just pay someone else to do it!

After a few hours of work–most of which was digging through files for the paperwork I lost–I submitted my returns, with the assurance that my Audit Risk was low:

Audit Risk is Low. Yesss....
Woo hoo!

The next day I got word from TT that both my Federal and State returns had been accepted and that I would be receiving my refund in my bank account within 2 weeks.

So thanks again, TT, for making an otherwise daunting, time-consuming task, a piece of cake.
