2019 Federal and South Carolina state Refunds
Lacking the ability to edit and add comments in a form format. The window only driven format is not intuitive. State of South Carolina Return needs to use state line item descriptions and show line item numbers too and or form format not just windows. And be able to enter comments to document entries.
wait until mid February to file
Early filer here (1/31)— program still buggy on smoothly updating (not issue of firewall). Accessing program from root folder enables updates; accessing opening program from other locations (desktop shortcut or start menu does not). Filed fed return but was disappointed that was unable to file the state return on 2/1; told to check back on about 2/7. Wanted to get it all done at once and can't. Not sure if TurboTax has the same issue or not. Otherwise, both programs are similar. Would like a screen button to more easily concurrently view the actual tax form while in interview mode.
Not good enough to use again.
Ive been using this software since 2008. Ive enjoyed the ease of use in the past. This year was different. It was difficult to connect to their server. This problem caused program to stop working in the state mode. It was unable to download the software in order to use this portion. The federal softwore worked OK, but wouldnt update because of the server problem. The program fell far.short of past experience with it. Gotta be honest and say that i dont trust it enough to use it in the future.
Don't trust the "take a picture of your W2" part
"Take a picture" app did not work well. Took forever to connect with phone camera, and it accepted one W2, then it disappeared later on its own, and I filed the return without realizing one W2 was gone. Now I have to file an amended return. The second W2 never did go to the return and had to enter it manually. Won't trust it again.
Not buying this ever again
10 days after I filed and after waiting for 45 minutes a couple of times for their chat line where no one ever showed up I finally find out that the IRS rejected my return because there's a flaw in the hrblock software which won't be updated until the 14th could have probably told me that 10 days ago
KY State Tax Schedule P mini-worksheet entry issue
I have used TaxCut or HR Block home software since 1994. This is the first year I have had problems with the software. The KY State software after the accuracy check is wanting an entry in the miniworksheet that does not belong. This is flagged as an issue during the accuracy check, Then it is wanting my pension payee in the table for the form entry. I tried numerous ways to work around or override it and it just causes more problems to appear. The Issue is an entry is wanted on the KY Schedule P, line 1b-B (Yourself). It should not require an entry since my pension is pre-1998. I retired in 1994. Also it should not require the entry on the form for Married filing Separately on the Combined form return since my pension income is less that the $31110. No entry should be required in that worksheet for me. The program carried the proper entry to the Schedule M in the proper place. Last year it didn't have an issue with this. I was unable to E-File this year due to this error in the software.
And you dare to ask if I would recommend this program to others?
First it was rejected and I had to prove it was me to get it efiled, Now your program is screwed up and I have to wait to start the process all over.
Am I going to have to call in and prove my identity again?
I have a large refund and you are not letting me get it !!!
I switched from turbotax many years ago, maybe it's time to switch back
