I had a couple of occasions in the past where I had to override turbotax to get the return correct. Hated seeing the red typeface on my entries, which was the sign that they weren't supported answers.
Can't even remember what the issue was, and it has been a few years. Nonetheless, just like any other route, if complex, out-of-the-norm issues pop up, the software may not handle it properly.
While it is true, as Gerntz said,
You're responsible for the return. I find it foolish to not understand the work done...
I don't think the law is reasonable in expecting everyone to have the time/interest/ability to burrow into the Code, Regs, and Cum.Bull.--much less the circuit splits on grey areas of the tax law (which may have been where TurboTax failed me). The system can get really complex really fast if you get far afield from straight W-2 and some investment earnings.
