Turbotax User Forum on Internet?

Is there a Turbotax User Forum on the Internet? I do not see a good one on the Turbotax site.
Thanks for any info! charliec

There was a forum at turbotax.intuit.com last year, but it doesn't seem to be there any more.

There is good reason for Intuit wanting to avoid such a forum. I, for one, would be one to bitch and moan about their product even though it may be the best of lousy ones. My chief complaint is that the implementation does not take advantage of searching, copying and pasting, and a whole bunch of other features computers are good at but people are not. I will just mention several items.
1. If I go to a form and wish to navigate to a portion that is about deduction, for example, I cannot enter a search term "deduct" to find where a word containing deduct in the text of the form.
2. If I switch back to a form I recently visited, I do not get to the place on the form I was when I left it. I have to search for that spot again.
3. I do not remember from earlier this year, but I do there were a number of occasions when I had to retype information from one form to another without being able to cut and paste.

Agreed. There are a few features that have come and gone as well.
1) Easy jump from number to source field, i.e. when clicking on a box that shows "calculated number" a single click to get to editable source.
2) Some easy way to forecast next year, or import into current year. This was a feature years ago, a page that let you tinker with numbers to project the next year's return. Now, when I did that projection on '12 software, it doesn't open into '13. A "populate data into current year" would be useful.

That's the QuickZoom feature. It's still there. When you click on a calculated field, click the little magnifying glass that appears to the left of the field and it will take you to the source. Or right-click the field and click QuickZoom on the pop-up menu. There is also a Data Source option on the pop-up menu, which lists all the sources if there are multiple sources, shows how much is from each source, and has a link to each source.

That's the What-If Worksheet. It's still there, too, only in forms mode. In the 2012 software the What-If Worksheet has a box you can check to use 2013 tax rates. The 2013 software has a check box to use 2014 rates.

The forum is still there. It's now called TurboTax AnswerXchange. For some reason they've made it hard to find. Try this link.
