H&R Block’s TaxCut is a scam
Did you know that when you pay money for H&R Block’s TaxCut software you’re only able to use it for one filing season, despite its built-in ability to download the latest forms and recognize the latest regulations for federal and state filing laws? I sure didn’t — and H&R Block doesn’t make that clear anywhere on their site (like, say, the FAQ, where one CSR told me that was supposedly clearly outlined). Apparently they expect you to re-pay for the same software every year — not including their ridiculously overpriced e-filing fees. Absolutely not cool. (I’ll try to fight back the urge to do my annual post in favor of flat taxes.) Maybe it’s time to go back to the local CPA!
