Product Features


Finds Deductions and Credits to Get You the Biggest Refund

  • Maximizes Your Tax Deductions — Asks simple questions about your income, family situation and changes in your tax situation. Then, based on your answers, searches for more than 350 deductions to get you the biggest tax refund.
  • Looks for Deduction Opportunities as You Go — TurboTax shows you which deductions you’ve taken. Then it goes through the deductions you haven’t taken to make sure you haven’t missed any. Have kids? You can deduct up to $3,500 per child! Pay for tuition? You may be able to deduct up to $4,000! Own a home? We can help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars with deductions for property taxes, mortgage interest, points, and more.
  • Gets You the Maximum Deduction for Donations — Every year millions of taxpayers undervalue the items they donate charity, potentially missing out on hundreds of dollars in additional tax savings. ItsDeductible (included) helps you accurately value items you donate to charity so you get every penny you deserve. Plus, it tracks other donations such as cash, mileage, and stocks, to help you get every charitable deduction you’re entitled to.
  • Finds Every Credit You Deserve — Pay for tuition? You can add as much as $1,800 to $2,000 to your refund with the Hope Credit or Lifetime Learning Credit. Buy a hybrid? The Hybrid Car Credit can add as much as $3,000 to your refund. Each year lots of taxpayers get a smaller refund than they deserve because they fail to take advantage of all the tax credits they’re eligible for. That won’t happen with TurboTax. We’ll make sure you get every credit you’ve got coming for the biggest refund possible.
  • Improved!  Handles Your Life Changes — Changed jobs? Got married? Bought a home? Had a baby? TurboTax guides you through common life changes. Explains how the changes will impact your taxes. And tells you what you can deduct and how, to help you get the biggest refund.
  • Helps with Medical Expenses — TurboTax walks you through all possible medical expenses (including those that many people overlook). Then it does all the math for you and tells you if you qualify to deduct your medical expenses for maximum tax savings.
  • Helps You Get a Bigger Refund Next Year — Gives you an overview of your tax return so you can rest assured that your taxes are accurate. Then it offers you tips on how to improve your tax situation so you can get an even bigger refund next year.


Helps You Reduce Audit Risk

  • Tracks Your Audit Risk — Audit Risk Meter checks your tax return for common audit triggers. Shows whether your risk is high or low. And provides tips to help you reduce your chance of an audit.
  • Includes Downloadable Audit Support Center — Gives you step-by-step guidance on everything you need to know and do if the IRS contacts you.
  • Alerts You to Audit Red Flags — Compares your deductions to national averages for your income bracket so you can quickly see if your deductions fall outside the norm and could possibly trigger an audit.

Does the Hard Work for You

  • Asks Easy Questions, Tailored to You — Guides you step by step through your tax return and puts your answers on the right tax forms for you. Skips interview questions that don’t apply to you, so you can finish your return faster.

I am overall happy with this product. I just assumed it included state, but it didn't. I need to read things better. Ohio has it's on free state e-file anyway, so it wasn't really a loss.

4 star(s) Best Choice is Turbo Tax Deluxe

By Good Son Verified Buyer from Las Cruces, NM on 2/12/2009

Primary Use: Personal
Pros: Great Features, Trusted Tool, Comprehensive, Easy To Navigate
Cons: Extra Charges
Describe Yourself: Value Oriented

T T Deluxe is the 'pick of the litter'. Classic, comprehensive, correct. I've been using T T for over 10 years. I dislike the additional charge for multiple returns. I do taxes for my aged parents and in-laws to save them money (gratis). Intuit: Just charge for the software. Then let the user be. Premier is a waste of money. It doesn't do a single thing more than Deluxe except for a bunch of Jaw-boning.
