  • 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.
  • Super Accurate!

    By Киза
    Great design! Easy to use!
  • Not accepting more than 9999$

    By Killercops
    The app won’t let you input an amount that is more than 9999$. Need to fix this bug.
  • Buggy text entry

    By alterwalter84
    Won’t let me type all numbers. Any field is limited to only 1 character, so just “2” for “200”. First, deleted and reinstalled, but the problem persists. Hope it’s an isolated incident.
  • App is Inaccurate

    By PizzaChef91614
    Pretty disappointed this year, I used this to get an estimate on my refund.. and then used turbo tax to file my taxes and I’m getting over 2k less than what this app estimated.. I don’t expect it to be 100% accurate but over a 2 grand difference from their estimate to them doing my taxes is absurd
  • Not the same?

    By scubadude1105
    I've used this app every year for my taxes. This year I have a lot less options to utilize when it comes to deductions and what not. I have never owed taxes in nearly 20 years and usually get a few grand back every year. This year it said I owe? How is that possible when very little has changed?
