Re: Turbotax

Maybe somebody here knows....when they upgrade software, why don't they have the option to use the "classic" (i.e. previous) edition. Half the battle sometimes is learning what's knew. The "improvements" they put in are sometimes more annoying to adjust to than dealing with the "flawed" previous version. I use TT, but I don't care for how "isolated" the software is from the tax forms.
...with no reasonable expectation for ER, I'm just here auditing the AP class.Retired 8/1/15.

Re: Turbotax

As a software engineer, I'll answer that question... the more versions of software you support the more work it is. The user interface (how the program looks and feels) is at least to some extent integrated with the underlying functionality. Supporting the matrix of "Every UI ever produced" x "Every functionality level ever produced" is a whole lot more work than just reving the UI and functionality in lockstep. The more combinations you have to support, the worse the support ends up being, and the more unreliable the product ends up becoming.
