CNET Editors' review
H&R Block's Web-based Deluxe tax preparation service lets you easily include your home mortgage, investment income, charitable giving, and other credits and deductions. The Deluxe option includes everything in Block's Free and Basic services, such as the ability to import data and documents from other tax software and online storage and access of your tax forms. But the Deluxe service adds expert guidance for your mortgage and other deductions, live and real-time technical support, and other extras. You can try H&R Block Deluxe for free without filing or paying until you're satisfied. We tried it with our 2013 income tax returns.
H&R Block's main site has the look and feel of a shopping portal, which is appropriate since we were shopping for an eFiling option with the specificity and support of an office visit. We clicked "Deluxe" and advanced to the log-on page, where we could sign in to our existing H&R Block account, create a new one (It's free!) or start using the service without an account (You'll need one to file, though). The Deluxe tool supports a huge list of tax forms, and the step-by-step procedure affords plenty of opportunities to get answers to common questions or ask the experts if you need more advice. You can run through the steps as often as you need to and only file when you're ready.
Homeowners and investors used to have to schedule office visits for their taxes, but H&R Block Deluxe's easy-to-navigate Webware and wide range of compatible forms mean now you can handle the whole thing at home.Tax app showdown:
From HRB Digital:
H&R Block At Home 2013 Deluxe is great for homeowners and investors with tax advice and audit support. It guarantees accurate calculations or we'll reimburse resulting IRS penalties and interest charges (limits apply). It's unlikely you'll receive an IRS tax audit. But if you do, free audit support and audit representation is part of our guarantee. Our audit support helps you understand why you're being audited and what kind of response to prepare. If you need representation, we can communicate on your behalf through an audit proceeding. You can import your W-2,1099 and last year's return, maximize mortgage and real estate taxes, and assistance on investment income and stock options.
