Turbo Tax 2012 will not run on a mac with the Intel Core Duo . Turbo Tax 2012 only runs on 64 bit macs. You can find out what chip you have by clicking the apple icon on your computer (upper left corner) and selecting "About this Mac". For further instructions read this -> . Why in the world Turbo Tax would do this to 32 bit owners is beyond me.  It's bad enough they make you pay for a brand new copy of Turbo Tax every year. They at least should have had the courtesy to put the 64 bit system requirements for macs on front of the box. Perhaps, it's time to try H&R tax software...better than paying for a whole new 64 bit mac to run TT. Has anyone used H&R tax software before?

    I agree-  The fact that TuroTax now requires a 64 bit system should be on the box under system requirements! I did not find this out until after I upgraded my mini-mac with Intel Core Duo to 10.6.8, which meets the requirements on the box!  I really do not want to prepare my taxes and store my information in the "cloud". Very disappointed in TurboTax!
