Turbo tax did my return only for the irs to 0 it out. They still charged me the 220 that just came out of my account today. I use them for my business as well and will no longer use them for my personal taxes or business. I cannot recommend them either. Very disappointed and now I am broker than I was before with my bank account over drawn!
I helped my nephew with his tax return on the turbo tax that I purchased. (Not the free version.) There was no questions on whether he qualified for an exemption on the California failure to have health insurance penalty. If my nephew didn't have a clever aunt, he would have been charged this $750. I searched for a way to claim an exemption on the entry view. I had to research the rules, and go into the actual tax form and mark that per his income he qualified for the exemption. The other ridiculous thing about that is that the tax software knew his income; should have known that he qualified for the exemption without even asking.
The free version cost me $220. Would have been cheaper to go to a real accountant. I would have spent 30 minutes and $150 instead of spending 6 yours figuring out the information needed by my self and $220.
