This was the second year that I used H&R Block Deluxe. I learned that you have to start at the beginning of each required section and enter your data step by step from the beginning to the end of each required section. It was a very rewarding moment when the software system congratulated me for correcting all my errors and completing my tax forms. My tax forms were then sent on to be processed by IRS.
About This Item
Second Time's a Charm
Keeping track of the details
Easy to use and includes schedule C. Overall I am very satisfied. they could have pointed out tome earlier in the process that I would not be able to E-file my state taxes causing me to attempt to file both as recommended which caused the federal to not be sent. Fortunately it was an easy fix.
Tax Program-Love It
I've been using the H&R Block tax programs for years. I enjoy the ease of use, the ability to click on a specific help topic, the quiz to see if you qualify for something, finding out things you are qualified for but never knew, the accuracy check at the end, etc.
H&R Block Deluxe 2019 review
Easy to install and register (unlike a certain competitor's product that insisted on registering every time it was started and then claiming all registration attempts had expired making TOTALLY useless). Help screens cleared up the few questions that I had. Highly recommended
Simple and effective tax preparation.
This is an effective tool to prepare your own taxes regardless of whether it's your first time or you've been doing it for 20 years. It guides you through every step and reviews your work when you are done to prevent possible errors or omissions. My only complaint is the cost to e-file the state return.
Good with limitations
I could not do my taxes without this software, but there was one state form that I was notified that I needed and the software did not give me any help with. That form (PA's W-2 Reconciliation Worksheet) ended up being the most confusing and vaguely documented part of my return. Took almost as long to fill it out as it did the entire return.
OK - Adequate -- but perhaps not the best.
It's OK, a cheaper way to do your taxes. The program helps really don't do a good job of explaining many things, and you will have to go to the internet, and IRS website to obtain the lacking information.But it does its job and I would probably use it again.
It's a nice but could be much better
It's a nice program but it makes it difficult to switch between the interview mode and the forms mode. In some cases reports a accuracy problem but doesn't take you to the right place to fix it. One example is the question if you have health insurance.
Multiple state income issues
It isn't worth the trouble if you live/work in different states! It doubles income from your W2 if taxes have been withheld from two states, very strange. There is a question asking if this has happened that allows you to fix the error the software made but when you do that it is considered some sort of problem that prevents you from filing your returns electronically. I've used this software (and it's predecessor) for more than ten years but I'll be getting a different one next year.
Look for a better program
Doesn't import brokerage house account numbers from last year's data. Doesn't process K-1 information. Doesn't have necessary forms available. Inflexible. Hard to navigate worksheets and forms. Lame information - just go straight to IRS web page instead.
