TurboTax Online Rocks My World Every Year

Last night, I finally sat down to wrap up any last-minute changes and file my taxes. Just as I have for the past 5 or 6 years, I used Intuit’s TurboTax Online to make my tax filing a breeze this year.

I know many of you have your own taxes to get to, so I’m going to keep this short and give you five reasons why I think TurboTax could be a good tax-time fit for you:

  1. Guidance. For the first few years of my adult life, I filled out my tax forms by hand, reading carefully through the instructions and getting a headache in the process. Nothing compares to the ease of TurboTax’s question-answer kind of approach.
  2. Community. An entire community grows up around this software each year, with instantly searchable guidance and discussions happening on every imaginable topic you need help with.
  3. Growth. TurboTax grows with you—there are currently five basic software levels based on your needs. As those needs grow, so can the level of service you choose.
  4. On my own time. I can (and do) log in about 5-10 times over the span of 2 months before I finally file my taxes. TurboTax lets me figure out my taxes on my own time, wherever I want.
  5. History. Intuit stores your year-to-year data on their servers, which means that doing next year’s tax return will be even easier than this year’s. You can pull and compare data with a couple of clicks, or it’s pre-pulled for you in critical spots.

Maybe trying TurboTax could help you, too? Give it a whirl.
