    There is no doubt in my mind about B of A.

    And if you read all of the legal disclaimers, they tell you that they have the right to change the terms at any time. So, they're still not outside of their terms at the time you signed up with them. Same type of disclaimer that is on every credit card agreement - they can change the terms anytime and their only obligation is to send a notification to you that the terms have changed.

    While it's a PITA because it interrupts your daily routine and causes some temporary problems, there are a number of alternatives to Intuit credit card processing. Find another company and get on with your business and never buy another product from Intuit.

    I made that decision about Discover and AMEX at least 12 years ago and have never done any business with either of them since. We all seem to be doing just fine - they don't miss my business and I have the satisfaction of not using any of their products.

    Another vote for TaxAct, I have personally used them for many years, and now my mother and mother in law (an accountant who used to work for HR Block preparing tax returns) use it as well. I have used their support and they are courteous, quick, and effective.

    This frustrates me Zak. I used to shoot with the owner of Wellington Enterprises, a national credit card processor and ATM provider, which I would guess is staunch 2A unless the major banks cut it off at the knees. I would like to see a sticky thread of businesses and politicians who've moved to economically sanction gun owners and the gun industries. I will discriminate with my hard earned cash too. I won't give a penny to these guys if I can avoid it. A polite list enabling folks to be aware and choose would by handy.

    Obviously.

    I never claimed otherwise, and we were free to drop them at any time for any reason just as well.

    I agree.
    A sticky with proven anti-gun companies would be nice so we can see who not to give our hard earned money to. Just the business name is all we need to keep it simple. Proven means actual first hand experience or any type of written statements from the company stating their position. Posting rumors only is not ethical.

    Funny you mention this. I just sent a PM to a mod with this same idea!

    Edit: Of course, the NRA-ILA already maintains such a list. LINK HERE.

    The NRA-ILA list is quite long and comprehensive. However, I didn't see Bank of America on it nor Intuit.

    Quickly scanning the list of celebrities who are anti-gun, I was surprised to see Bruce Springstein on it. He's Mr "Born in the USA"! What a hippocrite.

    Also on the list is Wrangler jeans. Wrangler is supposed to signify all that is America. I guess not!

    Send a message to the NRA so they can add Bank of America and Intuit to the list.

    I'm a little late to the thread but I use TAXCUT however I don't know their 2A stance is...

    I gave up Turbo Tax for another reason, those that don't remember TurboTax tried to put a fast one on us and I haven't used it since. see links below

    I actually see this as a good thing. It will make things much more clear. We will know who are enemies are and our voices will be heard.

    I was considering using Intuit Quickbooks Online to take care of accounting, bookkeeping, and invoices for my new start-up company, but thanks for cementing my decision not to use Intuit.

    I had a TurboTax ad pop up on my Facebook feed. I took the opportunity to share their antigun stance in the comments.

    This is a site I use. It is only as good as the information it receives from US, the aware gun owners.

    I suspect they provide services for smut vendors like adult book stores and the like.
    God forbid a company engages in something that is a Constitutional right.:rolleyes:

    Glad Zak started this thread & sorry I missed it until now; been using them since they first released the TurboTax software because, candidly, it is an excellent product.

    Not so anymore/never again - will spread the word as well.

    I don't agree in any way, but I can see these decisions being made as risk mitigation strategies...leaving all politics aside.

    Sure, that's their excuse. But anything can be explained as a risk mitigation strategy. Considering that our business has not changed, other than grown, and the recent events played out in the media, that does not support that explanation.

    Does TurboTax make some promise about not using or selling all the information given them? Your social security #, W2, address, email, financial information and checking account - seems like they should be able to sell the information to marketing companies for a fat profit.
