Yes, we know that some people don’t like TurboTax. That may be because they looked at it years ago, before it reached its current level of sophistication. It could also be because they don’t like the attitude the software displays – a bit too friendly, if you ask IFO.
Nevertheless, we just love it. It took just one day yesterday from start to finish to get our taxes done. And we don’t have a simple financial situation. But TT just sailed through, asking questions, downloading info from some of my financial institutions, and just generally getting the job done.
The software filled out all of the required forms and schedules, then printed it all out – including the state taxes. After IFO had prepared the mailing – of course she doesn’t e-file, don’t you know her well enough by now to know that she wouldn’t do that – she sat down at her desk with a little libation, leaned back and called a friend to celebrate.
What a relief to have that done.
