It is easy to use and easy to enter information. I would recommend this.
It takes too long to load to get to the first page to see information
Its easy to use and to enter data, I feel the price is a little high but all software pricing is going up. I still will stay with it.

It does all the things you need it to. It calculates your payroll, your quarterly reports, etc. Most accounting professionals use it or at least have software that is compatible, so it's easy to use in conjunction with your tax professionals.
They are ALWAYS trying to sell you something more.
It think it's a basic thing that all businesses need if they are handling their own accounting.

This product really took care of me when I had to file my taxes during the normal tax season. It really is like someone double checking your work to make sure you are not only doing things correctly but also taking full advantage of any funds that you are entitled too! I was super intimidated by doing taxes and now its a breeze!
I was sort of taken aback by the price of the product as I didn't think it was worth what they charge for it! Granted, you can certainly use this software as a tool to get back more from your refund, which would offset the cost. But the return on investment is slow making this a LONG term investment.
Be sure to check out other versions of this software to make sure that it is the right fit for you. But if it is, look forward to the lowered amount of stress!

This product saved me time and money. It was cheaper getting it done myself. Which i prefer. Learning it was made easy as well and now it comes simple to me.
This is difficult because it worked out great for me. I would just complain about the act of doing taxes but this software makes it easier.
I would just tell them use another software. During my research it was easier for me to determine which to use till i actually used it. It is more work but it's just one time you do it because the decision you make should help you for years to come.
