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.

✔ INSTALLATION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
♦ If you encounter issues with display, such as not seeing selection boxes, check your screen resolution. Both Windows and Mac minimum requirement for the screen resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels or higher. At a lower resolution H&R Block software will have problem with display such as not properly displaying selection boxes. Screen resolution can be changed on your control panel by change PC's display settings.

♦ If you are using a digital download you will need a key-code to install the software after you download it. The key-code can be located two ways.
Option 1: After my download finished the install started automatically offering me a choice of two links "View Keys" and "Install". When I selected view key-code after a fairly long pause it displayed my key-code in a browser window.
Option 2: You can locate it in your Amazon account:
1) Log into Amazon
2) Select Your Account at the top right of the page
3) Select Games and Software downloads which is towards the bottom of the long page you see when you log in
4) Then under H&R software entry you will see the key-code that you need to enter to unlock the software

♦ Does H&R allow to install the software on two PCs?
I found the answer on H&R Block web site FAQ under the topic "Installing Software on Another Computer"

I quote the FAQ answer below:
"There are just a few steps necessary to re-install the H&R Block At Home program from the CD you received in the mail.

This is the third year I've H&R Block instead of TurboTax. The past two years, the program worked like a dream - easy to install and use. No so much this year.
If you have a lot of W2 or 1099 to import then this product is not for you. If you don't mind manually entering in everything then it's a great product - so long as you don't have any problems or you have a lot of time to wait in line for tech support.
From my tech support session ( which took over 50 minutes of waiting to find out what an "error 2000" was)
"The import just being unsucsessfull. This is a common system error. If you would like to uninstall, and reinstall, this could fix the issue. If not, you would need to skip import and enter your information manually." (note the "could fix" - I did a reinstall and it did not fix the problem - even tried running on a different OS same thing). So I ended up typing in everything by hand.
Sorry - but if failing to import data is a common issue then the program is faulty - especially if that is one of the main features.
When the problem happens and all you get is a statement that the import failed error 2000, it's not listed in help and you can't find a reference to it on your website, you have a poorly designed product.
And when you end up waiting in a queue for tech support for almost an hour because it tax season (when else would I buy a tax preparation program?) and you do not have enough staff, you have a poorly run division.

So, I'm a long time H&R Block Tax software customer. I've always been happy with the product, and the price - way less than TurboTax or a human. That said, I just battled a frustrating install process and finally figured out the problem. After installing 2013, the first order of business was to download a software update (Federal). The update downloaded, and then failed during update. The software went into this cycle of prompting for an update, failing to install it (would get to about 80% and then roll back), then prompting for an update again. After cycling through this a few times and failing, I uninstalled 2013, re-installed, and proceeded to battle the same issue.

After an hour of frustration I thought to myself, I wonder if having H&R Block 2012 on my machine is causing a problem? So, I uninstalled 2012, uninstalled 2013, then re-installed 2013 and voila, problem solved. So, if any of you out there have 2012 installed (or potentially any other version), and you are having install/update problems - I would remove previous versions first!

Software conflicts happen, I get it. The reason for the two-star review is because the conflict isn't addressed AT ALL by the 2013 software. The 2013 software should have checked for previous versions during install and prompted for removal. At minimum, a warning or disclaimer should have been provided with the product detailing this as part of the install instructions. At BARE MINIMUM, they would have posted something about this on their online support page. Considering they left me to battle this for an hour before eventually solving the problem on my own, I'm not real thrilled with them to start this year's tax season.

I like H&R Block better than TurboTax. I used TurboTax for a few years, but tried H&R Block software and liked it so much better that I have continued to use H&R Block for the last several years. For example, out of the myriad of options, H&R Block made figuring out which educational tax credits to use for my college kids much simpler. Overall, it is simple to use and walks you through the whole insane tax filing process quite as painlessly as I can imagine possible.
