H&R Block's 2013 Premium Webware is an affordable eFiling option for contractors, rental property owners, and self-employed individuals. Its online storage and search features, live and real-time support, and reassuring guarantee of support if audited make it a good choice as a primary tax tool.
H&R Block's main Web site lets you view and compare its online tax tools side by side and start using any of them for free. The first step is to create or log in to an H&R Block account; but it's free, too, so you're out nothing if you decide not to buy. H&R Block Premium can import and store returns, forms, and documents from other tax software like TaxACT and TurboTax. New for the 2013 tax season is a Search tool for help with forms and other tax-specific questions. The site's layout blends elements of an eCommerce storefront with a support site for a familiar look and feel that keeps relevant resources a click away -- only instead of showing what other customers bought, you get FAQs and suggestions for deductions you might not have thought about otherwise.
eFiling tools, standalone or Webware, have come a long way since the days when you could do your taxes online but still had to mail in the forms to get your return or pay your taxes. H&R Block 2013 Premium's Web-based service gives contractors and the self-employed the flexibility and options they want.
