Quickbooks would be overkill if all you need a finance program for is to do personal finances, budget and expense tracking. Go with the latest version of Quicken for the Mac if that's what you're used to. There are several other finance programs for the Mac which you may like. Best suggestion is to go to the Mac App Store and search for finance programs and then read the reviews. As far as being compatible with TurboTax, most finance programs can export data in QIF format which TurboTax can import.

I also use the Splasm Checkbook program for simple finances - mostly to keep my checkbook organized and in sync with my bank. Splasm software also has a Pro version of Checkbook which does much more. You might also want to take a look at that too.

Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

In addition to the suggestions already given, take a look at this recent LINK from about 6 months ago for more discussion. Dave
