Both our Federal and California tax returns are printed out in draft form, ready for Spouser to review and approve. He needs to know what he’s signing.
Checking the returns took quite a bit longer on the H&R Block tax software than it normally does with TurboTax. Most of the return pages printed out o.k. but there was one major problem: Block’s tax software error check was wrong!
I chose Direct Deposit for both Federal and California refunds but forgot to say which bank to put them in. Block’s tax preparation software errors review did not catch this, which could have held up our refunds for months!
The problem was easy to fix, but I’m disappointed in Block’s slip-up. We’re going back to TurboTax for next year’s tax time. The look and feel of their product is familiar and, IMHO, more elegant. It also provides an audit trail that is easier to follow.
