Why has Turbo Tax not figured it out that completing a W-4 and planning for your taxes is an ongoing issue throughout the year

I'm amazed at the manner the way Turbo Tax operates.   Planning for your taxes is something I expect Turbo Tax to perform.  
I pay a subscription so that I can get Turbo tax ASAP but the software isn't worth anything until January or February when fax forms come out.  
There is NO way of estimating anything.  

Some other company is going to get it and eat Turbo Tax's lunch.  
I will leave Turbo Tax gladly to have a company that understands my needs.
