  • Doesn’t work on IPad

    By rotortee
    The App used to work great on IPad but now does not. When trying to input information in, the operable window disappears up the page. So disappointing, I really used to like this app.
  • Doesn't display correctly on iPhone SE

    By Guitargeek6298
    I loved this app in years past, but the recent update doesn't display properly on my SE, to a point that renders it nonfunctional. Very disappointing.
  • Good app - but HSA contribution missing

    By Frequent Traveler USA
    I don’t see a place to enter an HSA contribution so it shows up as a deduction. My workaround is to just subtract it from my W-2 income. I could swear that last years app had this
  • 2018 rates seem wrong

    By baltimore-brett
    I put in all my estimated taxes and I’m pretty sure the program is just plain wrong. I seems to handle basic income, has old rates for the 2018 estimation and does not recognize lower rates for capital gains
  • Tax Caster Review

    By siddingo
    Great app. Would be better if it included the HSA contribution credit and the deduction for casualty/theft/losses. Should be easy to add these options.
  • Can’t Import Data from Last Year

    By Wymanator
    I was hoping TurboTax could help me predict my tax obligation for 2018 based upon my (already filed with TurboTax) 2017 return. Not only does this app require me to re-enter all my info, it is oriented towards very simple returns.
  • Traditional IRA phaseout needs updated for 2017

    By fuzzzymath
    Traditional IRA phaseout for married filing jointly with employer coverage needs to be updated from $98-118K (2016) to $99-119K (2017). Would also be helpful if max deduction was displayed when entering IRA contribution.
  • Fabulous app

    By mvanarsd
    This is an excellent app. I wanted to find out my taxes would be for 2018 vs. 2017. Especially with the new tax reform. It is hard to believe, but it took me less than a few minutes to make the calculations . I highly recommend this app from intuit!
  • Excellent App

    By willshrly
    I’ve used this app for years and I find it very useful in planning my taxes. The numbers are always very good estimates. In one occasion, regarding 2018 changes, they immediately responded to my email and provided an excellent explanation. I am a satisfied customer.
