  2. Alissa was FANTASTIC!!!!! All of my issues resolved, I would recommend TurboTax to everyone!!! Could not have done this without them…. Alissa, if you see this, WAR EAGLE!!

  3. I LOVE TURBO TAX! They make it so easy to do your taxes. I’ve been using them for several years now and I would never go anywhere else. Thanks Turbo Tax.

  4. I understand that the new lower personal tax brackets are not permanent. When is the last year they are in effect, and to what levels will rates revert the following year?

  5. i was wondering how it works if i have not worked a job and have become a full time student with pell grants and loans. should i file single or as a dependent of this household

  6. Thanks for the info.
    Do you have input regarding those still working and collecting Social Security/
    how much tax from Social Security should be witheld? Percentage please?

  7. always use turbo tax. We need to do amended for 2016 and file for 2017.I worked out of town both years and have $5000 in union fees.Didnt find a place to claim for 2016

  8. I’m on retirement/ SSD I GET $20,256 DOLLARS A YEAR . IM SINGLE AND 52 NO ITIAMIZED DETUCTIONS . IT SAYS IM RESPONSABLE FOR MY TAXES . IS THERE A TAX BREAK FOR ME ? MY HEALTH INS. COMPANY SAYS IM INTILED TO A 525 DOLLAR A MONTH TAX BREAK BUT THEY WANT IT FOR MY HEALTH COST INSURANCE . EVEN WITH THAT I CANT AFFORD MY COPAYS SO I WAS CANCELING MY HEATH INSURANCE AND DO MY OWN PAIN MANAGMENT . IS THAT TAX CREDIT ONLY FOR MY HEALTH INSURANCE ?

  9. One of the worst changes in the tax laws which will hurt anyone who uses part of their home for business is the loss of the home office deduction that no one seems to be talking about, including Turbo Tax. Anyone who uses part of their home for business will no longer be able to deduct the cost of utilities, repair costs, etc, for their home office. This will cost me several thousand dollars in lost deductions. Lovely !
