I dont think i saw it mentioned in the thread but HR Block offers a BONUS on your federal refund: 5%-10% back via gift card.

"Just put some — or all — of your federal refund toward the purchase of e-gift cards from retailers like Target, Amazon.com and other retailers. The e-gift cards you purchase can be used online or in stores, and we'll add up to a 10% bonus, just for choosing H&R Block!"

________________________________________________________________________

CAREFUL ON WHAT VERSION YOU BUY Block is doing some shady marketing to push people to the more expensive versions they may not need. Basically ignore the comparison chart go to the version page and see what forms it supports for the true picture. If it has all the forms listed you need, it will do your taxes. See below for moredetailed explanation.

Lot of misinformation on what version will do what bouncing around and I hope I can clear it up a little.

H&R Black is doing a little semi shady marketing to try to get you to get use a higher level version. The Chart comparing versions is almost worthless. Forget the chart they show. Instaed on the version comparison chart page, click on the different versions and see the supported forms link(right under the price) to get a true picture of what each version will handle. If it supports the forms you need it will work for you. Block adds some features that they stress in the chart that may make it appear you need the next higher version.

Good example that is causing the confusion that Deluxe doesn't do Schedule C.

From the chart For the Premium version this is checked.
Quote :
Maximize deductions for self-employment income (Schedule C)
This feature is unchecked on the chart for Deluxe.

This makes it appear on the chart that Deluxe does't do Schedule C and Premium does. Not true, it is just an added feature that will make it easier for you to find deductions supposedly. May be another interview section, or ask you some questiions along the line of did you spend anything on this type of expense. It's generally not very useful, if you have any idea of what your deductions are, the Deluxe Schedule C walk-through is included and will guide you right through.

From the supported forms page. for the Deluxe version we see it does do Schedule C
Quote :
Common IRS forms and schedules:
Form 1040 Individual Income Tax Return
Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement
Form 1098 Mortgage Interest Statement
Form 1098-E Student Loan Interest
Form 1098-T Tuition Payment
Form 1099-DIV Dividends and Distributions Income
Form 1099-G Certain Government Payments
Form 1099-INT Interest Income
Form 1099-MISC Miscellaneous Income
Form 1099-R Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement, or Profit Sharing
Form 2441 Child and Dependent Care Credit
Form 8863 Education Credits
Form 8917 Tuition and Fees Deduction
Schedule A Itemized Deductions
Schedule B Interest and Dividends
Schedule C Profit or Loss from Business
Schedule C-EZ Net Profit from Business

Schedule D Capital Gains and Losses
Schedule EIC Earned Income Credit
Schedule SE Self-Employment Tax
Schedule 8812 Additional Child Tax Credit
NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE FULL LIST FOR DELUXE SEE THEIR WEBSITE FOR FULL LIST

Schedule C is handled fine by Deluxe


Deluxe works fine for me. I itemize, am self employed and file a Schedule C, wife receives a W2 from her company, have capital gains, IRA, SEP 401K, stocks etc. In other words a fairly complicated return and Deluxe handles my situation.

Premium I do believe is needed if you are incorporated and I'm not sure at all about rental income but check the supported form page for a truer picture of what version does what. The added helpful features that they add seem to me sometimes just a waste and I'd rather just plug my numbers in directly instead of the extra questions and walkthroughs

Just a friendly heads up: if you have a "simple" return and make less than 62k per year (single; more if mfj) you can file for free using h&r block's online system through myfreetaxes.com

Thanks for the find. I wonder if we can get this cheaper? In the past I got lucky paying $5 for the H&R Tax Deluxe for a few years in a row.

Thanks! It's possible this may show up 2-3 dollars cheaper at some point, but I'm ready to start my taxes soon, and this is a good price.

Is someone going to share that downloadable file based on the discs that are sent to houses again? Last year I used it for the first time and it was the cheapest method - $5 to $10 if memory serves.

Hmmmm, might be worth the extra 2 bucks here then.

Edit: Thanks though, just realized I had received the one in the mail this year.
