What type of taxes can TurboTax handle?

If all you need is help with a basic tax return, you can choose from a wide selection of free online products. However, not all tax preparation software products are designed for complex tax issues. For instance, business owners and self-employed taxpayers will typically need more sophisticated tax preparation software that can process additional tax forms and tackle more deductions and credits.

TurboTax can handle the following special tax scenarios:

  • Business owners and self-employed taxpayers
  • Estates, trusts, and retirement accounts

  • Property taxes

As well as offering federal tax filing and preparation servcies, TurboTax also offers the following benefits:

  • Audit support

Note that you will typically pay a premium for these additional benefits and you may not need them all. Consider the services you or your business require before choosing a tax preparation firm.
