    The corporate responses on Amazon leave me scratching my head. The gist of their explanation seems to be that they are reluctantly removing features in order to make the product compatible across multiple platforms. They "hated" to do it, but they were forced to. Apparently the competition managed to avoid this dilemma.
    When more and more people start their tax prep next month, this thing could turn into a real nightmare for Intuit. Free upgrades might soothe a few ruffled feathers, but it's not going to fix the overall PR problem.

    I'm one of those disgruntled customers. I've used TT every year since the MS-DOS days, and bought their products EVERY YEAR without giving it a second thought. This year, after finding out it would take TT Premier to work my simple return, I bought H&R Block Deluxe for less than 30 bucks. I loaded it and it imported last year's tax data from TurboTax without a problem. I suspect I'll be a Block customer from now on. Did they think they could bamboozle their millions of steady customers without repercussion? Apparently.
