1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the additional cost February 14, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Digital Download|Verified Purchase
I have used various versions of the H&R Block tax cut software in the past (mostly because it's the cheapest way to efile). Because I sold my old house, bought a new one, and had some other complications I bought the "Premium" version thinking that it would help me with some of the complications. Boy was I wrong.

- The "interview" did not fill in some of the forms correctly the first time through, making me go back to adjust them.
- The "interview" did not take in to account the buy and sale date of my homes. If I hadn't have researched the law, I would have claimed more of my property tax costs than is allowed.
- It doesn't tell you until the end that it will charge you extra if you want to eFile your state taxes.
- The Ohio Tax department's own eFile web site is easier to use.

Don't buy this version and if you use any version of the H&R Tax software, make sure you know the tax law. Don't count on it to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would give zero stars if I could February 10, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Digital Download|Verified Purchase
I spent nearly a day putting all my personal and business information into this software. All went well until time to eFile. It gave me an message saying I had an error on my Schedule C. After checking form several times, I could not find any error and called the tech support line.

So after three hours on their chat line and two phone calls, each an hour long - it was determined that I had fallen victim to a KNOWN bug in the software. The only solution at this time is to wait another two weeks for the next scheduled update when they are supposedly fixing the bug. I cannot eFile until that time.

This is unbelievable!! At least they agreed to refund my money so that I can buy TurboTax and start the process all over again. Nothing like having to do your taxes twice!!!

This is the last H&R Product I will every purchase. Lousy.

I have used H&R block for the last 5 years and generally, it's been good. However, with the 2013 Premium version, they are missing key forms for tax credits - namely Form 8936 for EV vehicle tax credits. I chatted with their online help group and they will NOT have this form anytime soon and are considering adding it for "future years". They don't even plan on supporting this form with the next update. How can a tax software NOT support a legitimate form and this is the PREMIUM version at that?

So you can't take the tax credit at all using their software and if you manually download the form from IRS.GOV, you can't adjust the 1040 to include the manual form. So the tax amount generated is totally off and you can't file with it as the manual 8936 form is not included.

Turbo Tax 2013 does have this form from the looks of their support site. Guess I'll be switching to Turbo Tax going forward.

1.0 out of 5 stars Support is terrible! I won't use again. February 2, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Digital Download
I've used this software for many years, and thought it was great. However, I just got a letter from my state of residence saying that I owe them $800 for a miscalculation in my 2011 return.

I contacted H&R Block and spent 35 minutes on hold, listening to a recording assure me that they stand behind their customers. When I finally got a live person, she said all she could help me with was techical support and that I should use their chat service for my question. After a 20 minute wait to get a person in the chat, she informed me that the miscalculation was my fault because I didn't make adjustments to the amounts the software calculated. The error checker included with the program told me that there were no warnings or errors in my returns before I filed them. When I asked about being reimbursed for the nearly $200 in penalties and interest because of the miscalculation, she wrote, "H&R Block is not at fault. We are not paying the IRS an interest or penalties."

So much for standing behind your customers! And now I'm worried that there may be other errors in my past returns that were not flagged by the program. Clearly Block does NOT stand behind its products.

Bought the premium version because of the additional forms I needed due to an estate filing. Read about all the great support I would receive but obviously didn't read the fine print. Got on chat with my "expert tax adviser" who informed me even though the forms were there, they could not help me with any thing past the simple forms. I went to a CPA...

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty Product February 12, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Digital Download|Verified Purchase
In doing my returns I chose to use the simplified deduction (safe harbor deduction) for my home office. I only have one home office and this should have been a simple thing for the program to handle. The return was finished with no errors, but when I went to electronically file the program blocked itself from filing saying that there was an error on line 30 of the schedule C, that the amount could not be more than $1,500 (which is correct with this simplified deduction). But my line 30 was $1,125. Now, most CPA's would agree that $1,125 is less than $1,500, but H&R's Tax Block is struggling with that.

I used chat to talk to support. He said that it is a known issue and SHOULD be fixed sometime in February. He said that I have two options now. 1) Print and file on paper. 2) Wait for the update. I said that it not acceptable. He asked me to send a copy of the receipt to their corporate offices, and wait for weeks to get a refund.

So... This product may not be able to get everything done that you want. Just a buyer beware.
