I am deleting this post that I wrote. It seems pretty clear to me that the comments below are written by competitors - H&R Block actually named in comments - writing negative things about TT. Knock it off. I will continue to use TT as I have for decades. Never a tax form problem, great guidance. Love TT.
My biggest concern is that they aren't even putting the changes on their web page anywhere. They aren't answering our questions within the community pages to tell us what the changes are. I'm considering taking this to the Better Business Bureau because this is not how a software company should be doing business. Or perhaps the IRS would like to know they are reporting critical changes to their federal tax software, but not letting the people know what the changes are to the software so that if they already filed, they can know if something needs to be fixed. Not everyone files electronically. This is so very frustrating.
Makes me nervous too. Also means waiting until the last day or two to recheck the return, again, and then file because with this change in functionality, the user has no way of knowing what has been corrected and if the corrections even apply to their returns (fed and state). I've found a fair number of minor errors already - those are the easy catches (mostly line number references left over from 2018 that still appear in the 2019 forms) and reported them through the feedback popups.
Please contact customer support for further assistance.
Why is it that the only time a Turbo Tax Employee has responded to any comments in this thread is about technical difficulties? Why are we still not getting any information about what the critical updates are to the federal forms? I want to file my taxes, I have waited longer than any other year because I don't know if Turbo Tax is ready to use or not yet. Why can't an employee respond to this?
