I've used H&R Block's tax software (formerly called TaxCut) every year since 1995. Several times when I saw a promotional deal I purchased both TaxCut and TurboTax to compare. I found that TurboTax did not do anything better than TaxCut while costing consistently more. In addition, I like the option of being able to file 5 free Federal e-files as I do taxes for other relatives who are less computer savvy.

H&R Block software also wins if compared to the free on-line options. I don't like using the on-line tax programs for two reasons (1) I don't want my financial data to be on someone's web site (2) free offers include the Federal tax only.

This year I used a digital download for the first time rather than a boxed version. I liked the security of having a physical CD in case I need to re-install on another computer several years down the road. But you are supposed to be able to download the software again to a different computer and when the boxed version was not available I went digital.

Downloading the software was easy, however during the install I got an error registering the software. When I started the software it immediately gave me a prompt to enter a key-code which (the prompt said) I should have received in the email after purchasing the software. The email I received from Amazon contained no such key-code.

If you've used tax software in the past you know what you're getting in this package. As stated in the product information the federal e-files are included even though it's not in the software title. The download from Amazon was simple and the installation was smooth. (The key code needed to install the program is easy to obtain. It's located under "Your Account" -> Digital Content "Your Games and Software Library.") I was able to easily upload last year's return (as I used H&R Block At Home 2010 Deluxe Federal + State + eFile) and start inputing my information. There is still some ambiguity in some of the interview questions but for the most part the interview is clear.
Be aware that they try to upsell the "Premium" package in this software very early. It's annoying and easily clicked away from but I can see them snagging an extra $20 fairly swiftly if someone wasn't used to using software like this. I am willing to look over this for the cheaper price tag and that I have had no troubles using it to e-file both my Federal and State taxes in recent years.
I commend H&R Block (and Intuit for that matter) for being much more visible on their pricing this year. The comparison chart clearly states that the state e-file is an additional $19.95. Compared to TurboTax pricing at $57 (11/28/11) + the state e-file $19.95, this is the clear price winner.

I have been a long-time TaxCut / H&R Block user and continue to appreciate the value this software provides when compared to the cost of the alternative (TurboTax). I have used both, and honestly the user interface and usage differences between the two are negligible. The layout, organization and functionality are fairly standard when compared to previous years, so expect consistency.

The fact that H&R Block has the cheaper overall software, cheaper state e-file, and that state returns are actually included WITH the software purchase is a major plus. I am an employee owner at an S-Corp and have to file in multiple states. Doing this with TurboTax would be prohibitively expensive.

If I have to pick one con, it would be Deduction Pro 2011. We work hard to maximize our deductions, so an easier user interface for calculating sales tax and estimating the value of our donations would be nice. This is the one area where TurboTax carries the advantage. With TurboTax the donation valuation functionality is included within the software, whereas with H&R Block you have to go online to use their Deduction Pro and port over the results. It isn't a major negative (as I've rated the product 5 stars), but if there is one thing to fix, this is it.

As far as purchasing goes, I decided this year not to play the waiting game by pouncing on price fluctuations and rebates, and just to buy through Amazon. Purchased for $32 and downloaded straight to my computer. Easy, relaxing, and a price I'm happy paying. I'll buy this way from now on.

Purchased this software and compared it apples-to-apples to TT (long-time user).

After completing both the amounts were not matching up!

After hours of research, I realized H&R Block software did not calculate my HSA properly which likely would have flagged an audit. If you overcontribute to an HSA, MAKE SURE YOU ADD THAT FULL AMOUNT TO 'OTHER INCOME' (yes, manually). Otherwise your going to get into trouble. TT did this automatically.

Is that the only thing they missed? Never again, I'll stick with TT and my instincts.

**EDIT: Dropped to 1-star after finding another error. After deleting itemized medical costs, the State refund didn't change. Ummm....? Went into state and found it DOES NOT automatically change this to $ have to MANUALLY update that number!?! So it automates ADDING info from Federal to state, but DOES NOT automate when you DELETE information.

This is programmatic failure -- more AUDIT material!

**3RD ISSUE!!!!!! Amazon's codes don't work for H&R Block's Tax advisors. H&R Customer support told me my key isn't valid...even after getting a 2nd key code from Amazon! The software lets me register with that key code but H&R does not recognize it in their system (customer service stated that all key codes are valid for Tax Advisor assistance).

This software shouldn't even be sold to consumers. I'm politely asking for a refund from Amazon.
