Turbotax is owned by Intuit, not Microsoft. While there have long been rumors that Microsoft would buy Intuit, that has never actually happened. Intuit Quicken and Microsoft Money remain the two big competitors in the personal finance field, for whatever that's worth.
Also, you don't have to pay for Turbotax online (or any of the tax sites I've tried) until it's time to actually print and file your taxes, after you've already gone through the whole program. Seeing as how they present you with the warning screen before you start, I'm not sure what kind of "refund" you expected from them.
