Pros
TurboTax Business is perfect for small business owners like myself and I highly recommend them. The process is easy and they have reps and the tools needed to guide you along the way if needed.
My overall experience with TurboTax has been good. I have successfully been able to file on my behalf multiple times and very easily.
I love that TurboTax helps me easily categorize all my business expenses so that I can itemize them and maximize my deductions.
Cons
The customer service is terrible, the price is terrible, and the ease of use it terrible.
My overall experience with TurboTax Business sucks.
Nothing about this software left a bad taste in my mouth.

Cheaper than an Accountant!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We've only used it this year, and so far, I love it. It was super easy to link up Quickbooks and all our employee info. Very intuitive filling out the tax forms as well.

Pros

I love that it syncs with our Payroll, that is why we switched from TaxAct is because TurboTax syncs directly with our Intuit Quickbooks.

Cons

It's more expensive than TaxAct, and the customer service takes forever to get an actual agent on the phone.

A bit expensive, but great for deductions.

Reviewed 9 months ago

Overall, my experience has been pleasant and it gets my taxes over and done with, even if I think they charge a bit too much for small businesses.

Pros

One thing I liked about TurboTax vs another tax system I also have used over the years, is that it does deductions a bit differently. It really helps you break it down to know what you can and cannot add. This is helpful for businesses that have to buy larger equipment or equipment more constantly to keep up with their demand.

Cons

Like the other company I use, they can be a bit expensive for small companies.

Gets worse every year that goes by

Reviewed 2 years ago

TurboTax is a one-stop-shop for the two certainties in life, Death and Taxes, because by the time you're halfway through using their product, you'll be sure to want to blow your brains out.

Pros

The only thing I used to like is that it would sync with other free Intuit products like Mint, but the new version is so buggy that even syncing doesn't work

Cons

1. Suprise charges. Anything you do will sneak attack you with an upcharge for a necessary feature when you're halfway through. For example, the business version will charge you about $175 just for the software, then another $60 or so for your state, and if you're in NYC, it'll try to charge you even more for the city. Even their phone support team didn't know if NYC and NY State were necessary concurrently....

Very Intuitive Software

Reviewed 3 months ago

Easy to use software with great tools.

Pros

The software is well built. All the formulas and calculations are accurate. Gives you great suggestions for a bigger refund check.

Cons

Customer Service is not what you expect. During the call, I was provided a service code for 20% off which never worked.

File your business taxes in an hour

Reviewed 3 years ago

I did not need a CPA; I paid a fraction of what I would have paid a CPA firm

Pros

I couldn't believe how comprehensive yet easy it was to be walked through the process for answering questions and providing data that would calculate my Federal and state taxes.

Cons

It was so thorough that there were a lot of questions that were not relevant to my business so I felt like I was spending too much time on moot things.
