I have used H&R block (TaxCut) for years. This is the first year I had to deal with at least two bugs. Both are tied into the information that it imports from last years return.
First it had that I filed a standard deduction then it had zero for my AGI line. Both of these effected how the program handled my current return.

If you import last years information you will have to check every line since whatever is getting imported is suspect and no longer makes the filling easier since the information can be wrong.

Previously I had never come across a bug.

I have purchased this H&R Block software for the last 3 tax periods. It is easy to use and walks you through the necessary steps to ensure you get the best benefits for the tax year. Updates are provided, as they become available. H&R Block stands behind the software and makes the same commitments you receive if dealing with one of their tax preparation offices.

I have been using H&R Block tax software since the TurboTax servers went belly up the day before taxes were due a few years ago.

Now in this years gem from H&R Block, they include a deceptive ploy to try to get you to upgrade to Premium edition, as if you hadn't already payed for the tax subjects that led you to the upgrade offer.

OK, so I finally figured out what was going on and went about my tax prep business. The program seems to work. But you just don't treat your customers that way. They must think we're idiots.

It's not us.

I have been a TurboTaxd user for years. I had been reading that H&R Blocks software was as good and would import previous years taxes from Turbotax. Being cheaper, much, than Turbotax I thought I would give it a try.
Not intuitive. Hard time importing. After a couple hours I gave up when it became obvious that this was going to be an ordeal that would ultimately not be worth the effort and ordered Turbotax again. Took less that 30 minutes to do my taxes after receiving TurboTax.
BTW - I am a retired software tester, a skillset that H&R Block might do well to invest in, especially in the useability area.

This is our 4th year with the H&R Block product (formerly Tax Cut). This year took a bit longer despite it being a simpler return. The program kept wanting to check for updates each time we began. Some of the screens didn't update as quickly as before and information didn't seem as obvious. The whole process just seemed a bit more complicated. If this was my first year using it I'm not sure I would return next year. However, with 4 years of good refunds and the H&R Block reputation we will be back to this product next year and hope it returns to some of the easier formats from the past. Compared to other programs or using an in-person tax preparer, the cost can't be beat. And for multiple family member filers, the cost can be shared with up to 4 other people (5 free federal files included) and the cost becomes truly minimal.

I have used this software for years to do my taxes. Even though I own a home I use a fairly simple version, and feel you don't have to spend more to do your taxes. But, if you do, you can upgrade on the fly, so no need to do so ahead of time. The five free e-files are a nice touch as my live at home kids can use it and file also. My state has free online filing so I don't bother paying for a state version.

This is not as user friendly as Turbo Tax. I was so unsure they were done properly, I obtained a copy of TurboTax for that year and did them over. The outcome was the same, but the detailed guidance provided in the TurboTax software was what I have come to expect and made me more confident that they were done properly. Additionally, the state taxes were not included.

My husband needed this H&R Block 2011 edition to do his past taxes. This cd was in perfect condition. The shipping was very fast. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Although i had to do my taxes twice due to a major mechanical breakdown in my laptop (laptop vs. road), I was able to complete the second iteration in about 90 minutes and get my junk mailed on time. Hate the taxes but the product is complete and self explanatory.

I have been using this software for about a decade and a couple years ago I had a complicated year that required I see a CPA to have my taxes done. The CPA asked what I had done years prior and when I said H&R Block, she said "Good Choice". She said many accountants who run low value return help actually use this program and don't clients. Makes sense, no different that people that clean carpets using the grocery store rental machines.

Fast easy simple, my choice to the biggest legal refund.
