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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Tax Program December 26, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Switched to H and R last year. I find it extremely simple to use. The very best feature is the ease at which numbers can be overridden so its possible to test numerous tax scenarios to find the which choice results in the lowest tax liability. The one complaint is that when I print the draft forms, there are huge black letters all over the form stating that it IS a draft form and cannot be submitted.Those warnings obscure the numbers on the forms. I KNOW this is a draft and I KNOW the final forms are not yet available and would appreciate a gentler reminder of this fact.

I am posting this review in mid January 2013 to help people who may be trying to decide what tax software and which versions to get. Because of pending tax law interpretations and such, the software recommends that you don't file taxes as of mid-January 2013.

I have been using H&R Block software for at least a decade. Last year I used the boxed software version and the installation was rather frustrating. So this year I got the Windows digital download version. Installation was trouble free with the PC download, but still a bit cumbersome.

If you are not familiar with the Amazon digital download software, here is a rough outline of what happened.

Immediately after you buy, you can begin the download process. First you have to save to your computer an executable that is the downloadable Amazon installer (under 1MB). At this point, it may be a good idea to save open files and close programs.

After you download the downloable Amazon installer, and you run it, it starts downloading the H&R Block installation software (around 50MB). This makes the user interface jumpy, thus the save open files sentence above. This on a quad core Windows 7 desktop. This completed without problems.

After the H&R Block installation software downloaded, it was time to install the actual software. I clicked on Install in the Amazon downloader program. Then clicked on View Keys to see the software key (opens in browser window). You have to accept license. You can view the privacy policy (opens in browser window, readable size but small fonts - maybe the fear of Professor Elizabeth Warren is encouraging financial companies to be more honest and upfront these days?).

Installation takes a few minutes. then you click Finish. Reboot is not needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4th year and so far so good January 13, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This is my 4th year after switching to/trying this product line. It downloads fine, installs fine, updates fine, imports last year fine..and so far (and historically) does just what I need it to with little or no complaint.

The only issue I've always had is the interface feels a bit cumbersome sometimes, but then I consider myself an advanced user and don't want to be so totally handheld. I think the tax side of the software has allowed us to get every benefit we could. I think the user side needs polish but then I also write software for a living and can see features that just should be added, even if only available for an advanced user mode.

I see no reason to switch again unless it started fouling me up getting through a return or was missing desired tax info somewhere.

It was not easy to even find where to contact H&R Block concerning a problem with their software. Waiting right now to Chat with Customer Support over 1/2 hour. My time is obviously not valuable to H&R Block, and neither is customer retention apparently.

If you are an active investment trader, you may want to look elsewhere depending on who your broker is. Although they claim to be able to import from TD Ameritrade, I got an unhelpful error message directing me to contact TD concerning my 2012 stock transaction download. No interface at all to Interactive Brokers. And if you think you can import stock transactions from Quicken 2013, think again. H&R Block only supports .TXF files for import. Quicken 2013 only exports Tax Schedules in Tab Delimited, PDF or to the clipboard. So that is a complete dead-end. I guess I'll be typing in all the transactions, but you can bet I won't be buying H&R Block At Home next year.

I filed 3 tax returns using this software and all 3 were delayed due to to the Form 8863 not being filled out properly. Over 600,000 people were affected by this, which was ENTIRELY the fault of H&R BLOCK, but they refuse to give a refund for the software because I purchased it slightly more than 60 days ago (again, due to THEIR error it has been delayed this long)! I have purchased their software for the past 5 years because Amazon has a great price that allows you to submit up to 5 returns but I will never use this awful software again! I am extremely disappointed with the situation!
