    Easy to use for a 21yo just learning to file taxes

    I've been paying an accountant way too much money to do my tax returns so I figured I would try and do it myself. The program asks questions in layman terms and fills out what you put in the appropriate places. Of course you are able to manually see the forms and the EXACT questions its asking (which is honestly pretty confusing). Its user friendly and before you submit, it does an accuracy check to make sure there are no discrepancies and also warns you of certain things to look over. I finished filing everything within 3 hours and I think that's pretty good considering how much money I saved.

    Bought it thinking I get my taxes done for free after I buy this on sale for 19.99 State and Federal, My mistake only 5 federals but there's more I had to pay for state 40.00 Then I had to pay to file the state and Federal 20.00, Came to about 80.00 to do my taxed. Could have taken it to a tax guy for that much. My friend knows how to do his for free on line from H and R Block so why did I have to pay any more than the price of the program? buyer beware

    This is my third or fourth year using H&R Block Basic for taxes. Always easy, accurate. My return is simple - a retired married couple - and a state that has no income tax. I probably could do it manually but it's reassuring to get the word from the software that everything is OK. Of course the ease of electronic filing is a bonus.

    Easy to use. Reasonably priced. Have used for years and imports last year's information, which is a time saver and helps insure accuracy. Easy to update for latest tax laws. And, saves a lot of money compared to have a tax professional do my taxes.

    To use the free software on line versus the disk install version, all of the tracking and suff is paid for in advance versus trying to pay for it out of the refund and have the funds go through multiple banks in return. Easy to use and understand.

    So-so. Didn't ask RMD questions which IRS requires. Easy to use but somewhat clumsy. Will not use it again. Used another software provider to actually file tax return. The two providers did calculate the same final tax amount

    Simple to use. Steps you through everything you need to do simpler taxes. If you own a business you probably need a higher tier version of this software, but for simple taxes this one works fine.

    H & R Block tax software is accurate and easy to use. If you don't want to pay a quarter of your refund to a tax service this is the way to go. It has e-file so it files quickly.

    It was a waste to buy as the codes said invalid and I had to sign into their site online. Should have just skipped the trip to the store.

    Due to some of the seemingly pointless calculation tables, the program makes it so much simpler and faster,plus all the math is done accurately.
