5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: I have used Turbo Tax with confidence since 1997. It has never let me down.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was an early adopter to the software program installed on my PC. It took me many years to get comfortable filing online but I have done that in years past as well and the program functions exactly the same and I have come to trust secure connections more so I use whichever I can get the best price on each year.
