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).

I've been using H&R Block Taxcut since 2002 and have never had any issues with the software package. Since we itemize and have various capital gains/losses from investments, using a tax prep software is a must as our Federal Tax Return consists of 40+ pages when all said and done. I have always been pleased with the interface and this year's version is no different. One "upgrade" I really like this year is that H&R Block integrated the Deduction Pro right into the software package. This is very convenient as I no longer need to go to a separate website to take advantage of the software. It comes in handy since we have around 10 different Goodwill donations of clothes this year. Estimating the donate value is pretty easy with Deduction Pro.

This year's version, however, seems to have installation issues when using a Mac. This is the 2nd Mac version I've used (2011 being the first) and the initial software installs with no problems. However, the updates always stall at the following step --

Items remaining to be installed: 3211
Searching: iMac

I contacted H&R Block and they were not very helpful in getting the issue resolved. However, after about a week of self troubleshooting, I found the issue. The updates will stall out when Parallels and Time Machine are running. I have a 2.3 Terabyte Time Machine Archive (3 TB Firewire Hard Drive) and it seems the installer tries to do a search on the archive, which causes it to stall out. I let the installer run for 24 hours once and it still was stuck in the same spot. Once I shut down Time Machine, disconnected the Time Machine Volume and also shut down Parallels, the installer went through smoothly. Unfortunately, I've had to do this now with the 3 updates I've received from H&R Block.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great user experience, some catches February 7, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this software for my Macbook (Mountain Lion). Overall, the experience was very positive. This is the first year that my wife and I have not relied on the accountant that does one or the other of our parents' returns to do our taxes. Our taxes are relatively simple, since our income is all reported on various forms to the IRS, we don't have much personal property, investments, extraneous income, etc. I was curious about preparing our own taxes and figured that if there was ever a year to try the software out, this was it.

THE POSTIVE: The download is pretty straightforward and the program runs great. The interface is clean and simple and asks a series of questions that take you only to data entry forms that are relevant to you. I had no trouble with putting in my wife's multiple W-2s. The software was also informative, and I know have a much better idea of what I need to do this coming year to improve my deductions. At the end of the process, you select a state module and the program carries over relevant info from your federal return to make things simpler. When filing the return you have the option of eFiling the federal and state returns and or a "print forms and mail" option. eFiling the federal return was quick and easy, while I printed the state forms to avoid a fee. Next year I will likely use the software again, and it will be interesting to see how well it deals with the additional complications my finances are likely to gain over the next year.

THE NEGATIVE: There were a few catches to this software that I did no like. The first is that hitting "back" doesn't always take you to the previous screen, but often takes you to the screen that was the beginning of the section you are in. This gets a little confusing and makes things complicating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing Forms February 18, 2013
By Brad

Does not account for Electric Vehicle credits or other items that pertain to a small percentage of filers. TurboTax does account for these items. Keep this in mind if using H&R Block.

2.0 out of 5 stars I found H&R more difficult to use than TurboTax January 29, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
As a multi-time user of TurboTax I thought I'd try the H&R Block software because of the low price. I was disappointed that the software was not nearly as user-friendly as TurboTax. It also did not show a very accurate "Refund so Far" number in that it didn't seem to make simple assumptions about income & deductions that would have led it to increase the amount of refund. (For example, even though I had entered 3 children as dependents it did not adjust for the child tax credit for each in the amount shown - a big deal!)

I actually decided to stop using the H&R Block software and paid for TurboTax instead. I was happy with my decision.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid tax program, consistent with previous versions February 2, 2013

I've been using HR Block for the last several years, mainly because it provides the most thorough walkthrough for 1099 self employed folks like myself versus other programs.
I downloaded it from Amazon to my Mac Mini with no issues. Given the significant CA tax law changes last year, waiting for an update was reasonable and it was delivered on the date promised.
I've tried using Turbo Tax for this in a few previous years but keep coming back to Block as TT is too oversimplified in its walkthroughs of Schedule C and other areas which makes me feel I might be missing out on some deductions.
Also, I appreciate that Block doesn't radically change its UI every other year, which bugs me about TT. If anything I wish they would offer a format more similar to what Tax prep people use for those of us that can (or think we can) handle it.

This year I've had to use the help/support option twice. The first was with the online tax consultant which I used my freebie code.
I got my answer back with 24 hours as promised and it was detailed enough I think to trust.

The second occasion I had an issue with the program itself as it has included a form I don't think should be there this year.
I found that the info and links to actually get to chat or email support are BURIED DEEP with the help section and you can get into a loop with it.
It would be helpful if you could email your questions in, rather than only have a chat or phone option.
I had to wait about 30min to get a rep on the Chat. The answer they gave to my question was satisfactory.

My biggest complaint about Block is that its FAQ section is way to simplified and lacks enough detail on common questions for items in the Form you are looking to be useful.
The Forum is fine, but its a pain to have to dig through that just to get answers to common questions.
Fixing the whole help/support functionality is my only real gripe with the program.
