"Easy and Informative"

What do you like best?

I love that not only does this let me do more than just the most basic tax forms, but it also teaches me what the different portions of my taxes are along the way. I like, for the most part, how it simplifies everything down to a level that is easy to understand and makes it easy for me to learn to file my taxes all on my own.

What do you dislike?

On one hand, having everything simplified is great, however in some areas I wish there was a way to learn in depth about what the different portions mean. It'd be nice to have something like a question mark you could click on that would lead you to a section that has more in depth information on what this is and why your return is what it is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows me to have a history of my tax returns in the cloud, which is very nice. I don't like to store away papers, so this seems to be a safe, secure place to go review the taxes that I have submitted in past years. I really appreciate knowing where they are, and what my returns were, and having it all online in a safe space.

"Easiest Way for Everyone to File Taxes"

What do you like best?

The way the forms are put is very easy. When I started filling my taxes, I was worried how long it will take me, but when I was using credit Karma Tax, I finished filing without knowing. It took me less than 20 minutes to find all the forms I need and completing everything. What made it the best is the ability to search for forms. It made the process faster. Ad up to that, it saves all the info and keeps reminding me of the taxes and where I left of to finish the filing. The bottom line is, its for users who don't want to learn the tax code to file, for the people who want to do it themselves without asking anyone. I think I will be using it for long term.

What do you dislike?

So far, I cant say there is anything I dislike about it. It made everything easy to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The way the Credit karma is designed is very user friendly, for people who even if they dont know how to file, it will help them finish the filing with ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

having to look for and easy and cheap way to do the taxes without the hassle of having to pay extra for the same results.

What Corporate Tax solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Easy and Free!"

What do you like best?

I have done my own taxes for many years now with tax software. This is the second year in a row that I’ve used Credit Karma Tax software to do my taxes and I love it! Not only is it free to file and use their software, it’s easy. I like the step-by-step process, and ability to add as many forms as you need (especially for scenarios where you have lots of deductions and various forms of income), the assurance that you are covered 100 percent if you are audited, and the ability to download and print previous years taxes since they archive for free as well. Did I mention...this is all FREE? That’s what I like best for sure.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can say, with 100 percent honesty is that I would have nothing to dislike had I not needed to file a multi-state return for 2017. That is THE only thing I dislike about Credit Karma Tax software. If you are in this situation, don’t use the software because it’s gets a bit complicated with regards to state filing and isn’t equipped to handle this. For Federal filing, however, it’s golden!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend. Even for complicated filing scenarios where many forms are needed. Though you do need to feel comfortable and familiar with computers, automated tax software and the latest tax law changes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping expenses down however I can with my taxes and filing. Especially now, since the tax laws have changed and little things like deducting your tax prep and filing is no longer allowed.

"Good, but not the best of the free tax programs"

What do you like best?

The clear benefit is that it is integrated with your credit scores, which credit karma does well. Very bright and clean interface with cute graphics and overall feel throughout. Guides you well through the steps and e-filing.

And it's free!

What do you dislike?

I had income from two different states and it was unable to handle either of my state returns because of this. Otherwise I didn't have any problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your tax situation is very simple and straightforward, this will be sufficient. If it is evenly slightly complex, the free version of turbo tax is just as easy to use and is capable of dealing with more complex situations. Perhaps in a few years Credit Karma Tax will be equivalent, but it's not there yet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just used for my taxes last year -- would have done state and federal, but only federal worked for my return. Was a good process for my first time filing without outside help!

"An amazing app"

What do you like best?

It is simple to use. Everything automatically syncs. There is no need to be constantly imputing or remembering all your accounts. This one account remembers everything for you, tells you when payments are needed and which accounts to focus on. If you're looking for a new card it even tells you what cards are will be the ones that you'll get approved in so you won't hurt your credit with hard inquiries.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much that I dislike. Everything is well organized and accurate. If I had to name one thing, I would probably just wish that the app synced more frequently to your accounts and show weekly accuracy on your account details.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that I am able to help is my customers build their credit. This app helps me give them a very detailed guide as how to fix and improve their credit. I can help them decide the right time to apply for a card based on either their score or the pre-determined cards. This helps them have less unecessary inquires.

"Credit Karma is a Winner!"

What do you like best?

I love the Credit Karma app, so it only makes sense that I use Credit Karma to complete my income taxes!

What do you dislike?

I don't think there's anything I dislike, I just wish that information from previous filing years was more easily transferred to the Credit Karma system. I would also like if there was an option to directly settle outstanding debts owed on your credit report using your tax refund. It would proactively address debt before individuals received their refund-- Double bonus!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that Credit Karma is definitely headed in the right direction! They have such a wonderful presence already and has made everyday individuals more aware of issues affecting their credit and potentially holding them back from advancing personally and professionally. I would recommend their services and app to all of my family members and many of my friends. It's important to life and I want to ensure that my network is completely set up for the best success.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everyone has to pay taxes, and I want to be sure that I process my taxes and receive the best possible refund (if any) in the quickest amount of time! Because of this quick process, I am able to allocate the time spent on other work and personal projects, and I can receive my tax refund expeditiously. It's important to feel empowered and in control when completing this process, and I encourage my network of family and friends to do the same.

"Credit Karma Tax is so useful to learn about your credit score "

What do you like best?

The best I like about Credit Karma is that it helps in filling tax forms, learn about your financial situation and help to raise more awareness about financial stability. The most I like about Credit Karma Tax is the presence of free audit defense guarantee for tax return forms. The free audit defense system helps filers to prevent wrong tax return filing.

What do you dislike?

In my experience, it was a bit difficult to register: they did not accept my international passport and asked for driver's license. However, I did not have it. So I had to wait to get my driver's license to get registered

for Credit Karma Tax. I think Credit Karma Tax should address this problem and make registration easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend Credit Karma Tax because it has guarantee mechanism.Thus, when you file a tax return, Credit Karma Tax provides free audit defense guarantee.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

to file tax return without concern(I am sometimes uncertain whether I need to include some money sources in tax forms, and it is a bit concerning. However, Credit Karma Tax helps in that). It helps to save time, file tax returns in a professional way, and get tax return in time.

"Very Easy to Use - We <3 Credit Karma"

What do you like best?

Credit Karma Tax is honestly one of the easiest online tax programs that I have used to date. I use Credit Karma itself on a weekly basis and I love its features and support.

What do you dislike?

Nothing.............. Why do they make you type 40 characters? :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes it much easier for me to figure out and remember all the things I should be factoring into both my personal and business taxes.

"Credit Karma Tax makes getting taxes done convenient"

What do you like best?

I like how I'm able to access all my credit scores and taxes within the same platform so I can plan my financial future.

What do you dislike?

It's not as intuitive as other tax softwares that I've used but there are still workarounds to fill in your info.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The questions are simple and guide you through the tax filing process. You don't have to be an accountant to understand what to do. Just have your deductions and W-2's ready to go and you'll get it done quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use credit karma tax to track my credit score. I like having the option track my side gigs data.

"Credit Karma Tax - the destination to know your credit and file tax"

What do you like best?

Credit Karma is the best destination to check your credit and monitor the ups and downs without actually affecting your credit score. Their recommendations for credit cards and new loan offers based on your credit is a plus. Now with the tax module it becomes easier to file the taxes.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike anything in the website. They are the best in the industry.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everyone have to give it a try and you will never regret for doing it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When you become a user of credit Karma it will have all finanancial details about you and once you upload your W2, THings get even easier. Filing tax is simpler, easier and free with Credit KArma tax.

"customer service lacks"

What do you like best?

It's a free tax planning service that allows you to use all their features without having to upgrade/pay and the site is very user friendly

What do you dislike?

While it is free and all their features are available, not all states are and if you need help good luck getting in touch with customer service

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i'm not solving any problems with it because i needed help and could never reach anybody efficiently so i gave up and used a different software

"Credit Karma Tax platform is too new"

What do you like best?

The platform seems to be working, and the fact that it offers free tax returns.

What do you dislike?

Taxes are complicated, and the community around CreditKarmaTax is pretty slim. It can be often hard to just trust if they have the ground covered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

CreditKarma is very much thought of as a credit score company. It needs to refresh its brand to be looked upon as a trust-worthy name in Finance. They should associate themselves with something like NerdWallet or may as well acquire them to gain trust.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While attempting to file my taxes with Credit Karma Tax, I was not able to import my W2, I can input by hand but that defeats the purpose of simplifying taxes.

"Credit Karma for Simple Tax Filing"

What do you like best?

Credit Karma Tax is extremely user friendly and FREE! It is ideal for those with simple tax situations.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, Credit Karma Tax can't prepare state taxes for multiple states. I moved last year for graduate school, so I can only file my federal taxes through Credit Karma Tax.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider using a different tax preparation service if you must file taxes for more than one state.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Filing taxes is daunting, and Credit Karma Tax makes is less overwhelming.

"The easiest platform to file taxes "

What do you like best?

I love the fact that it teach me how to do it. It helps me in the whole process and it took me like 15 minutes to find all the forms. That's awesome compare to other companies.

What do you dislike?

The only think I dislike a little bit is the fact that is not that easy to transfer information from previous taxes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We fix the issue of filling taxes without concern. We had use other products that we weren't 100% sure they were good but with you guys we know we are doing it perfect. And of course we save time doing everything and receiving the refund.

"Tax Filing Made Easy "

What do you like best?

I’ve always loved the ease of seeing my credit reports through Credit Karma, but since having to deal with taxes, their tax filing has made me love their company even more! Their tax program is extremely accurate and definitely makes me feel confident in recieving the max refund.

What do you dislike?

I’m used to turbo tax, so getting used to a different program was a learning curve at first. But I was definitely able to adapt quickly!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think the biggest benefit is the transparency and ease of their program. There aren’t any random hidden fees nor confusion throughout the process.

"Simple, free, and easy! "

What do you like best?

I always used Credit Karma to check my credit score and didn't know they had a tax option too! Once I used it, it was simple and free and I got my taxes done really quick. I've been talking about it to my colleagues all week.

What do you dislike?

I know it's fairly new so it doesn't support all tax forms. I had a simple time because I'm a single and didn't need to fill out anything complicated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't have to go to other services to get simple tax filing done! That was a huge benefit.

Its simple and because I have a credit Karma account, it is convenient as well.

What do you dislike?

not as easy as they advertise this to be. It will still take some time out of your day to fill everything out.

Recommendations to others considering the product

weigh out the pros and cons. You may save money filing, but you may get more out of a professional.
