Giveaway: 5 Free Downloads of H&R Block Federal Premium Software

by Kay Lynn

H&R Block at HomeIt’s that time of year again and no I didn’t mean Valentines’ Day (although that is important). Americans are faced with the tax deadline of April 18th. The question is how do you get your taxes prepared?

For years, we used an accountant until I convinced my husband that we could do the same thing for a lot less using tax software.  We selected H&R Block’s software (formerly named TaxCut) and have used it for several years now.

I find it easy to use as the interview process asks for all the information needed to prepare our return.  We never had any problems submitting our returns.

Software Description

Free H&R Block Premium Edition tax preparation software, a $49.95 value
Premium Edition includes features for Homeowners & Investors
·       Step-by-step guidance for Federal Tax Filing
·       Mortgage interest and charitable tax deduction maximizers
·       Sale of stocks, bonds and mutual funds
·       Easily imports your W-2, 1099 and last year’s information from TurboTax® and H&R Block At Homeâ„¢ software
·       Includes 5 free federal e-files. State tax filing available for an additional fee.
·       Accurate Calculations Guarantee
·       Free Audit Support
·       100% Satisfaction 60-day Money-back Guarantee
·       Supports most tax forms
NOTE: Entering the key code will “wipe out” $55 from the total owed.  (The total might also include the cost of one or more state filings which would cost additional fees.) Each state filing is $34.95.  The codes are valued at $55 each which should also cover sales tax for the redeemer.

We used an accountant referred to us by a former co-worker of mine for the past 3 years. I wouldn’t claim that he was particularly good, nor bad, just standard. We’ve found it easier to use an accountant because we are legally married in California as a gay couple. However, thanks to the the DOMA law at the federal level we must file separately at the federal level then “mock up” a joint federal return to get the California number and then file jointly with California. When we added last year my husband’s business expenses and stock sales and employee stock options the complications multiplied. However, our accountant has now retired and we are shopping for new accountants and they are EXPENSIVE!!! So, I’m thinking we may go the do-it-yourself route this year.

I always think that it’s great to get it done professionally once, especially when it’s complicated and then do it yourself later. A friend has been paying $350 for years to get her taxes done. Now she pays under $50 for both and she has seen no difference.
