TurboTax Basic Income Tax Software


Using TurboTax Basic can save you a lot of time, trouble and money when you calculate your taxes.


Contrary to many other tax aids, TurboTax Basic is not a tax book filled with rules, or a general manual for calculating taxes. Instead, you will be guided through the process step-by-step and no time will be wasted on tax issues that aren’t relevant for you and your current financial situation.


With this tax software edition, you do not have to transfer any numbers into complicated tax forms. That's an additional bonus that saves you all the time you would have wasted thanks to not having to hunt down tax form A333b, just to find that it was actually tax form A333f that you were supposed to use.


Easy to follow formatting

The step-by-step preparation process in TurboTax Basic is carried out in plain English, not legal mumble jumble. You will never have to consult professional tax books or dictionaries to understand the questions that are laid out in simple to understand laymen's terms.


If you wish to obtain more information about a specific question, you simply click the appropriate button and TurboTax Basic will fill you in on everything you need to know to answer the question correctly. This way you will receive a lot of help and information when you need it, and can skip rapidly through areas that you are more familiar with.

Custom Interview Process

One of TurboTax Basic's unique features is that every new interview will be customized based on your answers. As soon as the program has received information about you it will customize the following questions based on that data.


This interview process insures you will not have to click through a long row of questions that are clearly irrelevant to your specific situation. This helps avoid  wasting time on questions about filing jointly with a spouse when you have stated that you are single.
