(Note: This review also shows up in the reviews for the download version. Don't ask me why Amazon doesn't show the reviews in both places for what's really the same product, with just different delivery mechanisms. I bought the box version, if you want to know.)

This part written Dec 9, 2009 (see updated comments below)

This is of course a preliminary review (written Dec 9 based on use in the last few days). At this time one can't do more than a rough cut estimate of the tax return -- the IRS forms aren't finalized, the state forms aren't available, and of course the various income reports (W2, 1099, etc.) aren't out yet.

I don't have a super complicated tax situation this year: it just requires some things that a good tax program should handle easily. So far this program seems to do just fine. I found it easy to use, and found that imports from Quicken and from TXF files worked without any problems. Schedules A, B, and D worked just fine, and the related screens were easy to use and understand. Excess FICA was calculated correctly, as was the child tax credit. The AMT calculation does of course remain weirdly complicated (once a year I mutter to myself about all politicians in DC), but the program does take care of it with no apparent problems.

I used TaxCut last year -- chose it over TurboTax just because of cost, and was quite satisfied. I'm not convinced this year either that you get value for the extra you pay for TT. (Incidentally, note that if you have investment income you probably need to get TT Premium, so the price would be nearly double that of HRB Deluxe.

I'm mostly only writing my review to offset the wave of negative comments. I had absolutely no problems with the Amazon software download tool. If you are concerned that you might have a problem with it, just test it out first by downloading a free game or something. Next, someone complained that the amazon downloader tool remains on your system after the download - this is true unfortunately, but its also not a big deal, it shows an icon in the bottom right corner of your screen, and you can simply right click it, and close it, it will then ask you if you want to load it when windows starts, just uncheck this, and it will no longer be running on your computer. Finally, some people complained that they didn't get their product code. I don't know if this was a bug that was fixed or what, but the downloader software clearly displayed my product code (used for e-filing your return), furthermore, you can get the code at any time via Amazon.com, just click on the "Go to your software library" button.

The H&R Block software loaded fine on Vista with no problems. If you are using user account controls, you should right click the install file and choose "Run as Administrator". After the software installed, the first thing it did was update itself. Now I must admit it did appear to hang during this update process for some reason showing it was 100% on the download, and I had to click "cancel" but then it installed the update with no problems after that.

The tax software is very nice, most detailed reviews I've read comparing various software rank H&R Block (formerly TaxCut) and TurboTax as the two best, and they mostly say they are almost identical but as far as I know, only H&R Block offers audit support.

It pays to wait til late January/early February to start seeing large drops in the prices for products like this. Until the other day the digital download was $37.99... now down to 27. The name change, who knows why or cares. The download and install went seamlessly on my Windows7 machine. I created a folder called Taxcut(like previous years) and put in last year's final file. Started the program and it found the file and imported without a hitch. New files are then saved in a folder called HRBlock in your documents folder. I never really needed to create the Taxcut folder as you can search anywhere you have it stored. Everything works just as it should.

I ordered this H&R Block At Home tax software to be downloaded over the internet. Amazon requires you to install their "Amazon Games & Software Downloader". You then must use that software to download the software you purchased. I followed their directions, but cannot download the purchased software. I continue to receive the message "An error has occurred." I have contacted customer service and provided detailed information, but the problem is not solved. I have requested reimbursement since I have not "successfully downloaded and received" the software. Up to this point, they have refused reimbursement, in spite of the fact that I have not received the software.

FYI. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and it took me about 20 minutes of searching to find the product key of my downloaded version. Here's what I found from someone else's comment:

"Amazon provides the 8 character product key code in your "Games and Software" page
(where the information on software you've downloaded is kept)."
