  • Nope, it's easy. I've used it since 2003 (I think) for my returns. Maybe a few days longer to get the return.

  • All of them are easy as cake . . . H&R Block, TaxAct, and Turbo Tax. They ask you questions step-by-step, and you will find that you spend less time on them than you do at your accountants. You can file directly, and refunds will usually come within a week of acceptance.
    The only reason to keep paying an accountant these days is if you have a business and need help with things like estimated taxes and figuring out specific deductions.

  • I have used it for a few years never had any issues just fill in the blank basically. I e-file then have direct deposit done so it doesn't take long at all.

  • It's really easy, they walk you through and will stop you and help you if something looks fishy. It doesn't take any longer to get the return if you e-file it and direct deposit, it's the same exact process as H/R block. I highly reccomend it!

  • I have used Turbotax for years. My taxes are very involved because of the rental property. Turbotax is very simple. Usually you do the same amount of work except you actually put the numbers in the form rather than telling them to an agent.
    You are not going to get a RAL. But you can get your return in about 10 to 14 days if it is a simple return.

  • its very easy, like that one commercial, its like a gps for taxes, you just fill in the info like its a survey or something and it does all the work for you.

  • I've never had a problem with turbo tax online. I use it every year. I get my refund a week or so later, depending on when I file.
