Anyone familiar with Quicken's Turbo Tax products? I'm trying to figure out which version to use (Basic, Deluxe, or Premier).

Can someone who is familiar with these versions make a recommendation. Just some background:

1) I was married this year so will be filing joint.
2) I bought a house so will be deducting mortgage interest.
3) I have long-term capital gains, long-term losses and short term losses.

In short, I don't want to use the high-end version of Turbo Tax if all I need is the Basic version.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations!!!

Ben

The basic version of TurboTax will nicely handle all those things. For that matter, if your major issues this year are filing joint, deducting mortgage interest (don't forget property taxes), and capital gains and losses, then you ought to try TurboLorenzo™, a free, tried and true product. All you need is pencil and paper and a calculator, and a 1040 instruction booklet. If you want to be super neat, you can use downloaded, "fillin-able" forms from the IRS site. ;)

Don't put Turbo tax on your computer..!
read previous posts.
You should use Tax Act or Taxcut.
Yours seems quite simple without knowing more details..

Goog luck..
