About TurboTax Premier:
If you derive income from regular work, investments, and rental property TurboTax Premier is the most appropriate selection to get your tax returns filed.
With respect to investments:
- If you have a brokerage account to handle your investment services, TurboTax Premier will import full year of investing history; you no longer have to manually enter all the details as the software will even retrieve prior years details to calculate cost basis for stock, mutual funds, bonds and employee stock purchase plans.
- Analyze rental property income and go over the list of deductions, set up a new rental and calculate the fair market rent value.
One feature that is a great compliment to Premier is My Analysis & Advice. It’s a personalized report that consolidates your past tax returns and offers advice on how to maximize your next year refund or minimize a tax liability. In a sense it is a planning tool, which shows the impact of different types of income on overall tax return. By studying how your return has changed over the years, you can design it to reap grater benefits in the future.
Those would be the features specific to Premier version of TurboTax, but there’s more. You can save time with transferring your personal information from prior year returns and importing W-2 and 1099 forms. TurboTax then fills all the appropriate fields and your job is to confirm the accuracy of imported information or indicate any changes that happened in the last year.
Although the user interface does not change from one year to another, one constant update is actualization of the tax law. One great benefit of TurboTax is peace of mind that your tax return is accurate. It is something that TurboTax is guaranteeing 100% going as far as paying for the IRS penalties and interest imposed on you if there is a calculation error. Your return will also include the maximum refund or minimum tax liability as Premier analyzes over 350 credits and deductions and helps you arrive at the best possible outcome.
Here are few other features to expect from TurboTax Premier:
- Get help on your tax questions on the screen by connecting with tax experts.
- Estimate and keep track of your charitable donations throughout the year then simply import them to TurboTax.
- Try IRS tool to maximize your individual retirement account.
- Consider education credits – if you had school or student loan related expenditures make sure you account for them.
- Work at your own pace – there are a lot of pieces going in to a tax refund that’s why you can stop anytime as your work it saved at every step of the way; and if you’re away from your computer, pick up where you left off using a tablet or smart phone.
We also want to remind you that TurboTax has a number of partnerships with some of the top financial institutions, clubs and banks in the country.

Some of the most popular partnerships we’ve see are the Turbotax Bank of America discount and some others like the Capital One, Vanguard, AAA Auto Club, Visa, and PenFed.
