    Wrong standard deduction, no it was right

    Used this to estimate my taxes and had a huge refund. Went to use Turbo Tax and real refund was 1/3 of estimate. Not updated properly for new tax law!
  • Refund Calculation Can Be Misleading

    I am a tax professional who has been using Turbotax since 1987. Great product. But... a client just came in expecting a $3,000 refund. She expected this amount because she used the Turbotax Refund Estimator. She had tuition expense from a masters degree program. The Turbotax refund calculator does not ask what type of education credit applies. It automatically calculated the American Opportunity credit which is a much higher credit than the Lifetime Learning Credit. My client was extremely disappointed when her refund turned to $1,200 when I prepared her taxes. Intuit, please fix this! MB CPA, CFE, CGFA
  • Not accurate

    My kid turned 17 in November 2018. This app still shows a large refund as if I get the CTC for her, which is incorrect. It seems like the app thinks her being a full-time student aged 17-24 qualifies me for CTC, which is incorrect.
  • No where near accurate

  • Inaccurate projection

    I used my actual information and it projected a bigger refund that the one I finally received. Way off for a couple of thousands of dollars. Not nice at all!
  • Easy but not so accurate

    This is easy to use and has been mostly accurate in the past but was off by almost 50% this year. I would suggest using this more as a guesstimate than an estimate.
  • It’s about over 2,000 dollars off

    My friend told me about this app. It call me allll excited about my tax return. I do my tax return and it’s over 2,000 less than this app predicted.
  • Totally wrong

    Have used for many years and it’s been pretty right on this year it’s $3,000 off. Very upsetting.
  • Different from my actual refund

    I have used this app for a few years and it’s normally only a few 100 off but this year it’s over 3000 off and I don’t understand why! This is not accurate at all this year for 2018 taxes!
