I have the same issue. How do I efile for free for VA? Can you give me the link please. Is there any way to transfer the state return from HRBlock to the VA website?
Just go to the Virginia Department of Taxation website http://www.tax.virginia.gov/site.cfm?alias=efile and start there.

I used the middle option, which is basically a blank form you fill out and e-submit. Since H&R block already created a printable Virginia tax return for me, I just copied all the numbers over.

The deluxe federal + state efiling includes free state efiling for one state. If yours isn't letting you and you have a separate code for state you should've contacted h&r block. I've successfully filed NC state taxes for my bf with this.
I did contact H&R Block and they told me only federal was free. I'm glad it worked for you, and it's entirely possible I missed something (expecially since I bought the program way back in January). I only have one code in my confirmation e-mail, and I can't find anything that claims free state. Can you point to an original post that lays out the deal?

EDIT: Actually, I just saw post #1141. Maybe I'll try that when I get home tonight.

I hate to do this since I know someone will have to kill it but here goes. Its on again...

The free one still works with a little trick. Change the XML file as detailed (post #391) and then before you actually run TCAUTO.EXE disable your network controller or just remove the cable which gives you internet access. Open a web browser and make sure the connection is gone. Now, run TCAUTO.EXE. When the video comes up about the free app, click on the link for the free one and then enter your details. Before you click the Register link, reconnect to the internet and confirm you are connected by opening a web browser. The H&R Block software will offer to upsell you the higher version, skip that and then continue on to get a confirmation of your free "purchase". Just did this at about 8:40PM EST. Got the email a few minutes after confirming the "purchase".
I JUST tried this, this late in the game, and it seems to still work! Thanks!

I also got mine way before it was ready to file. But yea you just gotta read the wiki.. if it doesn't work for your first federal +state combo I'd be extremely suprised. Contacting h&r blocl should only be necessary if your trying to file for a second state and you registered twice successfully but am trying to do it all one one single computer. If you did each state file on separate computers then there shouldn't be any need to get them to give you the state file manually. Of course don't tell them you are doing multiple on the same computer.. just for some reason after clearing registry and all temp/files associated with taxcut and h&r block software it still recognizes the original state that was downloaded to that computer. That's when I needed to contact them. I needed to file my bf's federal and state (diff state) all registered fully in his name and received codes but everytime I finished fillingin his federal and got to the state page it would demand for the moneys.

I tried re-installing and it didn't work... THEN I tried the xml trick in the wiki and re-installed again. Worked perfectly!

What kind of crappy programmers does H&R Block use that this deal hack is still active 4 months later?

Thanks!

Ah sorry I didn't realize you didn't get the one that was fully free to start with (xml file way). So yea without the file that makes it the same as the completely free cds sent out by H&r block you're pretty much just doing the regular deluxe federal efile + state (meaning u get the state just not the efiling part of it). Glad you got it done in timr!

Try updating your Java. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

has anyone tried running the tcauto.exe (from SD3102 zip file) on windows 7- 64 bit ? I am getting error when run as admin.
The splash screen was hanging for me running Win 7 64 bit. After some Research I decided to copy the entire disc to hard drive and the program did not hang. It did however tell me that the offer on the disc had expired and I could purchase the program for $14.95. On the front of the disc cover it says the offer is valid until 2/14/14.

I tried updating Java and still had splash hang.

if you have eset smart security 6 installed and you are getting "SSL Error: bad server certificate or incorrect PC date" when trying to download your state program through H&R Block you will need to either disable the ESET SSL filter or set it to ask about validity. Took me almost an hour trying to figure out what the cause was as I thought H&R block was corrupted on installation.
THANK YOU!!!! I tried disabling the Firewall and Antivirus for an hour on each, and that didn't even fix the problem. I opened ESET Smart Security 6 as you mentioned and simply disabled the SSL filtering and wha-la...it FIXED the problem. I thought I was going to go crazy. It's possible to run msconfig and restart with minimal boot services and settings, but this was all that needed to be performed to fix the issue.

If you have trouble with automatically updating tax software as I did, you may go to the following sites. Follow the instructions to download update, then install manually. You need to replace “ dot “ with “.”.

Anyone have trouble updating the software? I can download both via the program as well as from the update website, but it doesn't seem to be able to install properly. It'll go through the install wizard and extract. When it's done, the program will open on its own, but it is not updated. It won't let me file until it's updated.
