2.0 out of 5 stars Good Personal, Bad Business January 9, 2013
By ChuckW
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I have used HR Block software for personal returns for a number of years and am very happy with it. I purchased 2012 Premium+Business this year so I could also do my small corporate return, which is where the problem occurs. HR Block has very deceptively written all copy for this product to make it sound like the business returns work pretty much like the personal, with e-file available at extra charge. After receiving the software, I found a buried microprint footnote on the bottom of the box that made me unsure about e-file availability. A call to Block confirmed that NO business returns prepared with this software can be e-filed. In Virginia (and probably some other states), business returns are REQUIRED to be e-filed, so this software is totally unusable.
H&R Block needs to take action to make very clear in their advertising and packaging that these returns cannot be e-filed, in spite of their description of the software as being a "comprehensive business tax solution."

1.0 out of 5 stars 2012 Business Not Ready 2/5/13 February 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Block is aware of serious problems with the 2012 business software. Form 1120s will not advance past the "partnership and Trust sections". It will abruptly shut down. Another bizarre problem is that if you go to the atx file for 2011 or 2012 and right click, it will tell you that this file opens with the 2008 version.I have spent over 16 hours with Block via phone and chat and trying to find a work around. Last week a supervisor told me it is a known problem but has no idea when it will be fixed. Block also will not let a review be posted on it's website that mentions this problem. They have denied 2 of mine with no reason given. Bill Cobb - CEO apparently does not care about his customers or he would have let all who initially contacted for help know instead of letting us spend hours trying to figure it out. Up until this year I would have given 5 stars rating but this year I have purchased a product that was knowingly faulty and Block apparently does not care about it's customers. To sum it up "H&R Block is not ready for the 2012 tax season" regardless of what it's delusional CEO says in his open letter protesting TurBo tax advertisements. Attached is an open letter I sent Bill Cobb - CEO:

H&R Block
Attn: Mr. Bill Cobb - CEO
Via email

Date: February 1, 2013

Re: Your letter of 2/1/2013 and H&R Business 2012 Software

Dear Mr. Cobb:

I applaud you for addressing the cheap shots in your recent letter regarding TurboTax's advertisements. An individual and businesses must have confidence in their tax preparer and tax software. Because of your concern on the perception of what people may think after seeing these ads, I felt that I should let you know of issues that I have experienced this week with your business software.

First issue. The check boxes don't line up with the multiple choice answers in the interview section so you have to guess which selection goes with which answer.
Very annoying to have to deal with such sloopy coding in this day and age. I went on anyway.

HR Block CS know s about this problem but has no idea if or when there will be a fix.

Second issue.. >>>>>>Runtime error 5 Invalid procedure call or argument<<<

This message will be displayed if you have imported their 2011 1120S into their 2012 1120s return. Once you reach the page Percentage of Voting Stocks (Partnerships and Trusts), a box will appear with the messaging Runtime error 5 Invalid procedure call or argument. The program will then hang and close.

Software completely freezes and Windows shuts it down after a few minute. Tried to run in compatibility mode with the same results.

HR Block CS has no solution at this time and they have no idea when it might be fixed, if at all.

Finally got my taxes done by not uploading last years info.
After I finished my personal forms and tried to use my "free" Efile the key code they provided doesn't work?????????
The chat help line doesn't load any more and the phone help line is backed up to infinity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same old malarkey from H & R Block haters December 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've used this program for business tax returns and trust returns for over 5 years. It is an excellent product for business returns and I say that as a CPA with over 30 years of doing returns. It has every form from W-2s to 1041 trust returns. Incredible selection--beats brand TT.

I have other software for Form 1040 (personal income tax return) that works best for the large volume of returns I do. Yet, the 1040 program works as I have used it once or twice on very complex returns to check out my other tax program's logic!

If you need to prepare a few business tax returns, Form 1120, Form 1120S, Form 1065 etc (or Form 1040) this is priced right and works well. On sale under $60 bucks it's the way to go. If you have 100+ tax returns to prepare, go with a professional program costing in the $100s or $1,000s!

Don't listen to a negative comment on a 2012 tax programs when, due to Congress' failure to renew items such as AMT affecting 2012, nobody has a working 2012 tax program yet! Yet they rate it a 1 star?!!! Pure propaganda or horse manure.

Buy it.
