Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  1. Installation: There was a crash in the end, but application worked normally after launching it.
  2. Interview mode
  3. Forms mode
  4. State installation (from downloaded file).
  5. Printing and previewing forms.
  6. E-file (after installing ie8).

What does not

The following didn't work or did not work as expected:

  1. Crashes happened during installation.
  2. Updates didn't work at all. Essentially to update you need to redownload and reinstall, which will cost a reactivation.
  3. There was visual glitches due to screen not properly redrawing. Perhaps I should have install something else with winetricks.
  4. E-file didn't work at the beginning, but after installing ie8 with winetricks payment process worked properly.

Additional Comments

I had to install dotnet40dotnet48 and ie8 to have basic functionality properly working. The experience was a bit daunting since:

  1. Installation crashed on the first try
  2. There was visual glitches when using application (screen didn't redraw or took awhile for redrawing).
  3. Couldn't update application at all. This cause to reinstall to get latests updates. This will burn a activation from your TurboTax account.
  4. E-file didn't work at the beginning and error messages were not helpful in knowing what was needed to install.
  5.  State download only worked by manually installing from download executable.
  6. The worst thing was when I lauched application after a week and it announced it need to be re-installed because OS has been changed. Re-installation didn't work and required a new activation. Most likely TurboTax tracks OS changes, which can happen when you update your Linux distribution.

To summarize, it is possible to file your federal and state taxes and submit them via e-file, however, for a person that do not want to spend extra time working through some kirks and glitches I wouldn't recommend it. Perhaps, it is a case to properly setup wine and install proper software like ie8 and correct version of dotnet.
