10 years of positive comments
Even if you itemize this program is easy to use and covers all the topics. This program allows you to keep all of your records in one place and not have to have someone ask you questions and possibly keep your sensitive information. I have been using this basic program for close to 10 years with only positive things to report
Very Satisfied With H&R Block Basic Version
I have been using Block tax software for past six years and I am totally satisfied. The Basic version can handle everything including itemized deductions and capital gains/losses. I have found it easy to use and very comprehensive. Some reviewers have complained about difficulty viewing forms while data entry is in process. This can be remedied by printing the forms you want to view to a pdf file. The files will then appear as they will be in the final completed return. Electronic submission is a snap and you can submit up 5 returns at no additional cost. Overall a great deal for the price.Flash66
2019 Basic better than ever
I've been using H&R Block tax prep software since 2014. Before 2014 I'd been using TurboTax for many years, but that was the year that TurboTax tried to swindle its users by restricting the tax forms supported by their basic-level package. So I switched to H&R Block and never had any reason to switch back.
This year's H&R Block Basic is better than ever for my middle-complexity tax situation. Unlike some prior years, there were no errors found in the final check that necessitated erasing an inexplicable entry generated by the program into a tax form field. The level of "upsell" page displays also seemed reduced from previous years. I always use the Basic version because it is the cheapest while still incorporating all the tax forms an individual would ever need. I don't require whatever tax advice the more costly versions might offer.cFortC
