Ratings and Reviews
At first it was the surprise price but now it’s the help support
Trying to get answers to the prices by using the SmartLook feature they have for the first time. Terrible service. The first time I called the person hung up right away. Second time I got a guy named David, and he only asked for my email and number then hung up at random. I got an email saying that my case number has been closed. TurboTax was acting like my issue was resolved. But it never was. It’s like I only explained the problem to David and he just listened and did nothing. Pretty unprofessional if you ask me. I’ve never experienced this type of Customer Service in a long time. I got hung up on in less than 2 minutes within two calls from the SmartLook feature on TurboTax. A feature that they advertise on TV as a helpful tool. That’s scary if you ask me. Because this thing doesn’t work. TurboTax you should be ashamed of yourself as a company. If this is how your service is I’m doubting you’ll even be bothered to see my honest survey that you had no problem sending me very quickly. But since I see you responding to people on the review app feel free to keep reading because here’s my survey: You didn’t answer my question, the person didn’t have his face shown, he didn’t help me at all or reach out to me after the fact (even though I gave him my number), and no I would not recommend this to my family, friends, employees, heck my worst nightmare.

Annoyed, frustrated, disappointed
The last two years I had to have my taxes prepared elsewhere, but for more than a decade before that, I used TurboTax and was always really happy at the ease, convenience, and minimal cost, so I didn’t think twice about returning this year!
TurboTax used to cost $0 to maybe $40 a couple of years ago. Now the service they advertise in this app as “free” cost me $125 total (although they have not presented me with a receipt or a way to verify this as of yet, so who know what it will be down the line!). The worst part is they weren’t open about the charges along the way or remind you of your costs or what certain tools you have to purchase, so if you work on and return to your return, good luck remembering why you’re being charged for anything! They also don’t openly present alternative cheaper methods, they present the option like you don’t have a choice while still advertising FREE (I did not want, need, or choose PREMIUM SERVICES but somehow ended up paying $40 for it), they don’t let you change your mind or adjust your “order”, and I still don’t have a receipt to verify anything, nor is the information present in the app to verify.
Proceed with extreme caution. EXTREMELY disappointed with the cost of TurboTax this year and will think twice about using them in the future.

It said it was free but I saw it charged me 40$ for federal lol But I don’t care cause it’s free money feel lucky at least the government even give u taxes return. cheap foools and I payed 20$ for a better version so that’s 60$ but i don’t care it seems fine to me rather then just go to a person and be charged 125$ or more plus who knows if they get charged the 40$ from the federal for filling it too from our taxes and apart from that still charge 125$... I filled my taxes with this app and everything seems good they accepted my taxes now I’m just waiting on it to arrive to my checking account 😁 I’ll give it a 5 star when it arrives I’m getting 1300$ who cares if I have to pay 20$ for an upgrade of the app I don’t have to but I did and 40$ for federal I would just consider it as appreciation for making such a easy app to use and so good. I’m a part time worker a student and I feel like I’m getting so much taxes like who cares if they take 40$ out of 1300$ like bruh why y’all so cheap so many people giving bad review just for 40$ that the federal charges.
The rest is up to you if u would like to upgrade to better version and pay more.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
