  • Free ?

    By aksekkd
    this stupid app says that it is free and when you are finishing they want to charge you 39.99 to be able to continue, I do not see that it is free at all.
  • They Stole $40

    By Kayjayjaykay
    Not once did I click any button requesting the “premium service”, and somehow this wound up on my bill. I would like my $40 back, please. I never offered it to you. That I’ve paid my hard-earned money to a company that takes advantage of its customers makes me feel physically ill.

    Great. Keep going. Be you.
  • Not... Free. Free. Free.

    By Conway.christina
    I used Turbo Tax last year when I filed for my taxes and loved it. It’s was quick, easy and free. But this year they made me upgrade to deluxe in order to file because of some schedule 1 thing that the basic package apparently couldn’t do. So I thought whatever it’s just $40, still cheaper than most places. But then it charged $40 for each return I filed, which I had three. So now I have racked up a turbo tax bill of $150 that is coming out of my return. Just incredibly annoyed with that whole situation and confused as to where all these fees came from.
  • Disappointed with fees

    By N.Maglio
    App makes it out like everything will be cheap. Then ends up be $40 hear another $40 there because you have this form to file. That was sort of expected and they were up front about. I am really disappointed that I have been using this for years now and either haven’t realized or didn’t use this feature but this year I decided to pay for turbo tax out of my refund. This is a mistake! DO NOT DO THIS. It will cost you another $30-$40. So I expected $80 already not happy about that when just a few years ago it only cost about $30 to file. But now I’m charged an extra $40! just because I paid out of my refund and they do almost nothing to warn you of this I say almost because I assume it is in some fine print somewhere that no one reads. Guess we know who we can’t trust. Might have to give H&R Block a chance next year.
  • Rip Off

    By Elementforge6
    So many things wrong with both the App and the company. Would never recommend.
  • Won’t Let me File By Mail

    By BP Silly
    Once I get to the File page, it keeps demanding that I upgrade. It won’t let me print or anything. Nothing changed since last year.
  • Slow

    By mandaloriansith
    This app is very slow when communicating about approval of your taxes. I just got mine and the app still states accepted status. Its been 7 days and it can not tell me i have been approved let alone funds recieved. 2 stars turbo , 2 stars.
  • It was easy to use but definitely isn’t FREE

    By Mrs.Harris2019
    I just filed my taxes using turbo tax. The over al process was extremely easy and stress free. Turbo tax had additional information on each page making it easy to understand and use to file my taxes. However it was not free as it claimed. In the beginning of filing my taxes I added the PLUS which was just $19.99. I added it for to use the extras. So I know it wasn’t going to be free at the end because I had added it. But at the end of my filing I had to pay an additional 40$ to file my taxes. Which in total I ended up paying 60 something bucks to file. Which I wasn’t too bothered by it but I don’t think the advertisement should say FREE when you still end up paying a $40 fee to file. Which in the long run is cheaper than what most places want you to pay to do your taxes but it was disappointing to find out that it wasn’t free as it has claimed. I wonder if it was worth paying the extra 19.99$ for the plus when I still had to pay the $40 to file my taxes?? Other than that I would recommend using Turbo taxes just know that isn’t actually free as it claimed to be. Which is why I gave it the three stars. However, I will still be using them again for my taxes next year because the process was easy to use and they had so many helpful tips & information to help you along the way. 10/10 would recommend to use to file taxes; just know that there is a 40$ fee at the end.

    At first I thought it was a good app, because the price it got back for me, but it over-advertises upgrading upgrading upgrading. See my point here? Then, Live Support never answers. Why make commercials and advertisements you can’t live by? #cheapskates
