Turbo Tax generates nice looking returns with no math errors. The interview process gives a false sense of security. The interview process does help with temporary tax changes that unexpected apply. It is still necessary to understand and verify every line on the generated tax return. Every year, I answer the questions its asks as I believe they should be and the farm rental income ends up on the wrong form. It takes several trys (and some grumpy comments which the software ignores) before it is handled correctly.
