Extra Charges - Refusal to make it right

TurboTax is an awful company to try and communicate with. Their customer service is not able to help you resolve issues. You get passed around from person to person without getting their mistakes resolved. You cannot find a phone number to give a person a call. You have to sit around and wait for them to call you back and sometimes they do not call back.

I called to ask a question about the deluxe. Package and the state returns. The person who answered in a video chat gave false information about being able to file federal using Deluxe and then file using the traditional free filing for the state returns. That is not a true statement, so I filed using the Deluxe only to find out that was a lie. I was not able to undo my purchase and file the free way. I had moved this past year and they wanted to charge me for 2 state returns. They were very difficult to work with.

I have just checked my credit card statement and see that they charged me for both the deluxe and plus filing. The deluxe has all extra bells and whistles of the plus I would not purchase both. They tell me that I ordered both at the same time, which is not true because I have my receipt. They tell me there is nothing they can do and when I ask to talk with someone else they tell me I will have to wait 24-48 hours. They are an awful company in which to do business.

I’ve never felt so robbed by a company. I have been filing my taxes for years with them and helped others do theirs too! I’m very proficient in how to work the app.
I have no children don't own a house so I don’t Itemize or do any fancy forms with my taxes so I have always payed for the $0 dollar taxes.
Somehow when I got to the end of filing my taxes it charged me almost 200 dollars in fees. I did not click anything that would make it do that. So I signed out of that email and used an old email to try to redo the taxes. Went through the whole process and it did the same thing. I really didn’t want to pay the fees but nor did I want to fill out my taxes for a third time. Hoping I could call turbo tax and get them to help me fix the fees I went ahead and filed! So when I called them and after and hour half on the phone mostly on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. They actually charged me for self employed plan when I had never chose that plan ever and would never. So they pretty much stole money from me and refused to give it back. Terrible customer service when it was a glitch in their system. Took 200 dollars for me and refused to help me. A loyal customer that will never go back nor recommend them anymore.
They try to comment about my situation on here and then ask me to email them what happened but never follow up and fix anything . Terrible company !!

TurboTax is going downhill

I originally used TurboTax in 2015. It followed by the IRS saying my information was obtained and steps to follow. From talking with other individuals and research, it sounded like this happened to TurboTax users. I switched to a different company, TaxAct, to complete my 2016 taxes. I returned to TurboTax in 2017 as it sounded like more security was in place and they had the flexibility of mobile filing. For someone who doesn’t have a working computer, this was a great option! Unfortunately, upon filing, the IRS rejected my information since I did not provide information from the previous year. TurboTax did not highlight this from the get go, but they had to problem requiring me to sign up for several other fees - the site required me to sign up and when I pressed the back button to go back to review my options, it kept refreshing the page until I agreed to the fee to continue. For me, TurboTax is not there for its customers and is not seeing the big picture - making filing taxes easier. I guess at the end of the day when I talked to a representative, my understanding is Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I would suggest looking into another company, since TurboTax is not like it used to be.
