I've used turbo tax for years and it's so annoying to constantly be prompted for up charges. The replies to the reviews say it's only pormpted if they feel like you would get more out of it. I file simple forms every year. Never had this before. Not only that but there's no option or an easy way to choose to update personal information. Someone is getting my tax updates on an old phone number and I can't change it on the app. But when you go to the website it prompts me to go to the app.

They automatically upgraded my account because I had to file with 2 states. Never received a notification until I realized my return was $163 short what turbo tax quoted me. I had to spend $59/per state plus the "service fee." At first, it is advertised as free. But once all of your W-2's and personal information are in the system, it reveals the $39 service fee. Not worth it when there's a dozen other similar services with less surprise fee's.

Been using this for about 7 years. Its always free. This year I was prompted to upgrade to a $100+ version in order to file my taxes. It would not allow me to file them without upgrading. Called customer service and it magically became free again. This is clearly bait and switch marketing that probably works on alot of people. Do yourself a favor and use a different program that doesn't use deceptive marketing strategies. I'll be switching programs for next tax season.
