If you ever make a mistake in answering a question, even if you go back and correct your answer, TurboTax relentlessly applies your first answer and confusion abounds. My only recourse was to zero out the entire return and start over. Now it works just fine.... If you correct an answer but TurboTax becomes nonsensical, you may have to start over.
That really should not have been necessary. I've never been unable to correct a "mistake", and I do make a few, if only to test the program :)

I've used Turbo Tax to do my own return (we use a higher-level product in the office) and don't always like the questions-interview approach, but sometimes following that gets you to right answer better. I prefer to use the direct input on forms, as it's faster. And once in a while, it doesn't flow the same way.
