TurboTax Deluxe includes free federal eFiling and helps homeowners, investors, and charitable givers maximize deductions. TurboTax Deluxe offers real-time help and searches for all possible deductions, including medical bills. Its Audit Risk Meter flags potential audit triggers and helps you avoid them.
First-time visitors to the TurboTax storefront can sign in, create a free account, or start any tool for free. TurboTax Deluxe's compatible form list was a welcome surprise; basically, it handles everything but business forms like Schedule C and those for estates and trusts. There's an option for first-time filers, too. We logged on to the secure site and had the option to start with last year's returns or create new forms. A prominent Help Search tool gave access to quick assistance by phone, chat, or online community. The site, itself, is slick and professional, and we found it to be very intuitive.
We had a good experience from log-on to log-off using TurboTax Deluxe. It not only lets homeowners and others with deductions file electronically, but it does so at a lower price than last year.

It is inot intuitive nor very helpful. My return is not basic, but not highly complex either. The Q&A did not address some of my needs, I was unable to find the help I needed. When I realized I was going to have to contact them via phone, I gave up.
It is back to good old Turbo Tax for me. This might work if your filing is very basic and you have no questions. The extra 30 bucks or so for Turbo is well worth it to me,

Oops! I thought i was reviewing Tax Act. I put this in the wrong place. I love Turbo Tax, but wish it was a little cheaper.
