Intuit Update – TurboTax Users Upset
Our business is strictly focused on providing QuickBooks training, resources, and information. However, we know that most of clients (i.e. accountants, bookkeepers and Enrolled Agents) do provide these services. For this reason, we try to watch for information you may find interesting. Based on the discussions we saw related to the articles below, it appears to be a big issue:
There is an article in PC Magazine that compares three popular tax preparation packages: 2nd Story Software”s TaxACT Deluxe, TaxCut Platinum from H&R Block, and Intuit”s TurboTax Premier. In addition to providing an opinion on each, there are also two other links that deal specifically with the activation code required to print or e-file returns to try to eliminate unauthorized copies of the software: TurboTax Customers Upset By DRM (which includes Intuit”s response and a discussion forum link where you can read what others are saying) and Intuit”s TurboTax Activation Scheme Irks Users. There is also a more recent article (1/10/03) that deals with C-Dilla, a program that monitors your CD drive.
