  • I just finished reviewing TurboTax 2018-2019, and I'm excited about how easy it is to use. 💵But, if you don't qualify for free file (and it's limited), they are one of the most expensive options for filing your taxes this year.

    You get what you pay for. You can pay or get something for "free". By experience you should know that there is a balance that works here, as with everything else in this world.

      That's not an issue of TurboTax - that's how you setup your LLC and elect to be taxed. Is your LLC an s-corp or c-corp. If not, you're taxed as a sole proprietor or partnership based on your structure.

    How does the car registration deduction page work?? I didn’t understand that at all. It asks you for the deductible amount from what you paid for car registration, but my reg card only shows the total amount I paid. I called the DMV and the rep told me he just tells his CPA that total amount listed on his reg card. Not helpful.

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  2 tháng trước

      I couldn't tell you - it varies by state. In CA, they break down the car registration into about 5 line items, and one of them specifically says "potentially tax deductible".

      If your tax refund on your return doesn't match what the IRS sent you, the IRS will mail you a letter explaining the difference and give you options to appeal it if you believe it's incorrect.

    I don't trust Turbo Tax because I put in my Bank interest and when I went to look at the preview it had it doubled. I went back and deleted it and put the information back in it still doubled it. So I think I will be looking for something else. Thanks so much for this video.

  • CarrMann

    Over played Free Free Free commercials then you find out its not free and not even state taxes are free like previous years, so price is double last years. very deceptive commercials and should not be allowed this false advertising. even while doing taxes they continue to try and trick you into paying more. cheaper to go to an actual human tax rep.
    dont recommend this site.

    I've always wondered if you can do more than one tax return with TurboTax or H&R Block. What I mean is, can I do mine and also do my adult sons? Or, can you only do one complete return??

    • DifferentKindofGlam
      DifferentKindofGlam 4 tháng trước

      Yeah you can make several. My friend filed herself and her boyfriend's too on turbo tax.

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      Yes, you can definitely do more than one return. On the desktop software, it's easy. Online, you have to make different accounts for each return.

    I hope you can address this concern regarding health coverage. In 2018 I was uninsured for 3 months (January-March)then after my employer closed down for business so I became jobless for another 2 months (April-May).On June I found a new job but in order to start getting coverage my employer required me 2 months probation so (June-July). From there i had coverage for 5 months (August-December) Will I get a penalty?

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      Yes, you'll pay a penalty. Since you had coverage for 5 months, you'll pay 7/12 of the annual penalty.
      You're going to pay 7/12 of either $695 per adult or 2.5% of household income. Here's a breakdown: www.healthcare.gov/fees/fee-for-not-being-covered/

    If I sold stocks on stash and acorns do I have to file that in?

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      Yes, you would report any gains or losses you had on the sale. Stash and Acorns will send you a form 1099-B that reports this.
      You also will be paying for this on TurboTax.

    Are you able to input info to see if it worth it before sending or as you input does it go directly to irs? I use h&r block every year but I wanted to see if this would be cheaper, but I want the option to see the outcome before submitting, that way if I don't like it I would go back to h&r block.

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước +2

      Of course you can see everything before you submit. You only pay when you submit at the end.
      Realize that the number (your refund or what you owe) will be the same no matter which tax software you use.
      TurboTax is typically more expensive than H&R Block.

      If you paid student loan interest, you’ll be paying for Deluxe (not free file). TurboTax is very easy to use, but it is one of the more expensive options if it’s not free.

    i owed 750 dollars of state tax , but they are just giving me back 250
    can you tell me what i am doing wrong

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      Right, but how much tax was withheld from your paycheck for those jobs?
      You have a total tax due, but you also paid towards your taxes each paycheck.
      Filing your tax return just "evens up" what you might owe or get a refund on.

    Is turbo tax fine, if u want to deduct mortgage interest? I don’t trust it.. my refund says its the same before and after I entered all my loan and tax info in.. pretty sure I’m about to get scammed..

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      You have to itemize your return to get your mortgage interest deduction. Most people won’t itemize anymore because of the Trump Tax Reform plan raising the standard deduction so high.
      TurboTax calculates the best option for you and you probably are better claiming the standard deduction which is why your mortgage interest didn’t impact your return at all.

    Can you get back state taxes if you haven't got them before ?

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      Remember, filing a tax return is just "settling up". You only get back money if you overpaid/over-withheld from your paycheck all year. You should be filing a state return each year if you're in a state that has a state income tax. When you file your return you'll know if you owe or get a refund.

      If you have student loans, you may have student loan interest. In which case, you'd need the deluxe. If you don't have student loans, it sounds like you'll qualify for free file.

    Helllo, question about filiing our federal taxes married/jointly. Our question is we were married in May with our W-4 both single. Then June 1 we changed our W-4 to married 1 each. When filing our federal taxes is there a way to make 50% of the years tax liabilty as single and the other 50% of the year tax liability to married. If not, we are considered to have a married tax liability for all 12 months of the year.

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  4 tháng trước

      No, you are considered married for the entire year.
      As a side note, you could always adjust your W4 over and over again to get your taxes withheld. You can contribute extra, etc.
      A good accountant or CPA will help you change your W4 for 2019 so you line up well.

    • The College Investor

      It is for both if you qualify - TurboTax has the most limited free file options, so things like student loan interest push you to deluxe.
      The best free choices are Credit Karma Tax and H&R Block Online.

      You can always start for free. So, when you start (and I've done this during my reviews), most of your prior year info is pulled in automatically when you select the option to. You only pay when you file. However, when you file, you'll pay.

    • Jennifer Paredes
      Jennifer Paredes 5 tháng trước

      I really do appreciate your immediate response! Now, would there be a way to purchase the package immediately to have access to that info, file later, and not have to wait until you’ve filed to get charged for it?

    • The College Investor
      The College Investor  5 tháng trước

      I don't believe you can at the free level. This is one of the drawbacks. You would have to manually enter prior years.
