TurboTax does not work with Google Chrome?
It’s tax time in the USA, which means everyone is either going to be happy with a refund or sad when they owe.
Many people use online tax filing software to make the job a bit easier since they can do it themselves from home.
If you want to file your taxes online and you use Google Chrome, you might need to skip TurboTax though, which does not support older versions of the Chrome browser. Or, you might need to use a different Web Browser.
Adding insult to injury is the supported browser list: TurboTax supports IE6 (Internet Explorer 6), but doesn’t support Chrome? That’s… curious.
Now Admittedly, Google Chrome is in beta, but it is very popular. Personally Google Chrome is my favorite web browser by far, so I was pretty annoyed to find this out. I imagine this is just a simple user agent detection, since other WebKit browsers are supported (Safari), but this seems like a curious misstep by TurboTax.
FYI: this effects all OS’s using the Chrome browser, and has been tested to not work in Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. Grr.
Now this is likely to change in the future as Chrome gets out of beta and Turbotax support increases, so keep this in mind: if TurboTax does not seem to work on your Chrome browser, perhaps try updating it to the latest version of Chrome, and that might fix it. Otherwise, you might need to use a different web browser if that is not possible.
