HR Block Premium 2018 - 2019
Now that HRBlock has dropped the AT Home registered trademark and the TaxCut trademark, there will be some confusion over the next few years on product branding.
HR Block Premium Federal offers easy, low-cost tax preparation. H&R Block Premium Software has built-in help to save you more money than ever before.
I have to say that it is no surprise to me that HR Block is the biggest competitor to TurboTax. Simply put, their prices are better and the software continues to improve the simplicity of tax preparation every year.
The H&R Block Premiums user-friendly interface is more sophisticated in a lot of ways when compared to it's closest competitors.
The percent % complete bar that is automatically updated as you progress thru your return helps you stay focused on each task while knowing how much you've got done and how far you have to go.
Premium's help options for your federal return are overall more organized and relevant in their presentation and instructions than those of TurboTax making it easier to navigate.
A help column on the right side of each page lists common questions related to the task you are currently working on, plus you'll find links to a help center with tax tips, a glossary, IRS publication instructions and some troubleshooting support if you need it. So many ways to get help or advice are available that you simply can't get stuck for long.
H&R Block Online versions also provide a "explain amount" link next to the summary totals to explain how these totals are computed. Another great resource is that H&R Block Premium offers one free e-mail or phone session with an H&R Block tax preparer, a great option if you get stuck somewhere along the way and need professional assistance to get you moving again.

I used the H&R Block Premium + State a few years ago for the first time and what I can tell you is that for me it worked far easier than I ever thought. I dabble in all kinds of investment opportunities to try to make a buck, so income tax filing can be complicated.
This software package proved that it doesn't need to be complicated in any way, shape or form to do your taxes. From the moment I started, the easy interview process was organizing what I needed, and eliminating questions I didn't need to bother with because they didn't pertain to my tax situation. Thumbing through irrelevant questions that don't apply to me gets me irritated quickly, so I was glad to see I didn't have to.
For myself H&R Block Premium + State is one great way to prepare your Federal and State returns with ease. Don't be fooled by inferior tax software manufacturers. I have tried many and if there is one clear thing I have learned - it is that the wrong software will cost you dearly in time, effort and frustration.
If your tax filing needs require more advanced software for business as well, try the H&R Block Premium Home and Business Edition for an all in one package..
