1. If you find another tax software preparation method that results in a larger refund (or smaller liability) than that calculated by the H&R Block At Home tax software program, H&R Block will refund the fees you paid to use their tax software program to prepare that return. To qualify, the larger refund or smaller tax liability must not be due to differences in data supplied by you or positions taken on your return that are contrary to law.

2. Additional state programs are extra. Most state programs are available in January. Release dates vary by state. DC, DE, HI, LA, ND, VT, and WV do not support part-year / nonresident forms.

3. Audit Support constitutes tax advice only. Consult your attorney for legal advice. Additional fees and conditions apply. Power of Attorney required for Audit Representation.

4. The assessment of your audit risk is not a guarantee that you will not be audited.

5. H&R Block guarantees accurate calculations, or they'll reimburse resulting IRS penalties and interest charges (limits apply).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product for the Price January 2, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
I have almost all my tax information already and wanted to start early. So far so good. I've used this product for at least 5 years now and it has always worked fine. No problem with State or electronic filing in the past, and I'll update about this year's experience. I use a Mac OS 10.5 which is getting old and everything still works fine.

I think this software is pretty much the same as before. Small upgrades and small glitches fixed. Transfer of deductions from Deduction Finder is still lacking, but that is a secondary program (free) that you use online at the HR site. I used to use Turbo Tax many years ago, but they got too pricey. Looking at that program again I see it still has bells and whistles, and still costs more than HR Block. HR Block also has free Federal e-file. In the years I've used it, never a problem.

At Home is still behind looks and some minor functions that Turbo Tax has, but if you are like me, and looking for utility, ease of use, and getting the job done with as little effort as possible, then I think you might consider trying this program.

It also includes their program Deduction Finder, something that can save you $$$ if you use deductions, and also you get some free time with HR Block tax specialists if necessary.

I am not gifted in math or tax law, and I find this program very easy to use. The questions are to the point, and the help feature actually answers most of my questions. It is good to know that I can also have a consultation with and HR Block professional if necessary.

Bottom line is that it gets the job done, is backed by HR Block (they also throw in some audit protection for free), and it costs less than Turbo Tax. So if using a product just a little behind in terms of fancy stuff is not a big deal, then I think this product will fit the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars tax forms not yet updated January 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
As of this review 1/9/2013, the tax forms have not yet been updated. In fact, the IRS hasn't published the final forms and extended the filing date to 1/30/2013, but the deadline stays to April 15th. HR Block has an update scheduled for 1/10/2013, so I will provide update if the download actually includes the new forms. Otherwise, any of the interview forms on this product will need to be revisited when the new forms are available. You can buy the product now (and find any cheap deals), but wait to do your taxes until Feb 1 to avoid doing taxes twice - once now, then once again after the forms are updated to review all of the entries for any changes.

This product installed on Windows 7 with no problems. I've used both HR Block and TurboTax for the last 15 years and always seem to comeback to Taxcut except for once a few years ago when TurboTax was actually easier/better. I have rental properties so need the extras& that Premium version provides beyond the Deluxe release.

--Update 1/10/2013 --

H&R Block released a product update as scheduled today. After installation, the interviews still have notice "This interview isn't final" with update notice that you can complete the return if you don't need to use some of the forms that IRS has still pending for final update.

Also, If you file before 1/30/2013, then H&R will accept your electronic filing, then submit the filings to IRS in the order received.

Next product update is scheduled for 1/24/2013.

-- Update 1/21/2013 --

H&R Block released an update ahead of schedule. The interview screens no longer have the notice so I would assume that the forms are now final. Having said that, the State download is not yet available.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big problem with missed deductions February 1, 2013
By Laurie
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Verified Purchase
When going through the tax credits section there is no prompt to enter child care expenses unless you paid for a non-dependent or paid in a different year. When I did an online chat they were unable to resolve it....I should have known when the service person asked what page I was on and there are no pages displayed. He suggested I check the box for expenses paid in a different year...that did not work. He finally decided he could not help me and would send it up the chain. What a waste of 45 minutes! That is a pretty big deduction to miss.

1.0 out of 5 stars For me, a total and complete fail:-( February 22, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc

This is one botched piece of software. There was an Arizona update tonight. Yay! Sounds like they finally fixed the problem of correctly transposing the numbers from Federal Schedule A to Arizona Schedule A. Nope. Not a chance. This company is fully aware there's a major problem with the Arizona module. They either don't know how to fix it, or they refuse to fix it. How do I know there are numerical errors in H&R Block's software this year? I ran the exact same tax return on 4 other major tax software providers.

Again.......the sad reality is that Arizona is broken. Block either doesn't know how to, or won't fix it.

Block appears to be inept. For that reason, I strongly recommend you save yourself time, $$$, and lots of grief. Don't buy this useless piece of garbage. It's that simple.

Whoever "handled" the Arizona module should be the hapless target in a farting contest starring Rosie O'Donnell and Louie Anderson. H&R Block turned this into a completely useless piece of software for me. Just some of the problems I found. I'm sure there are many, many more!!!:

1. Software incorrectly imports data from Federal "Schedule A" to Arizona "Schedule A". I told them about it, by way of phone and chat. No updates. No one has fixed it. How could all the others get it right and H&R Block get it so very wrong? And why do they not jump on fixing broken software? Why would they want to professionally embarrass themselves? Their lack of attention and overt laziness makes me embarrassed for them.

2. Critical forms for Arizona are missing (form 321, "Credit for Contributions to Charities That Provide Assistance to the Working Poor".) Try getting credit for what you've donated there, without having your return rejected. I dare ya.
