…you might want to leave comment on this post. Two people who make the effort to do such a thing may find an e-mail in their in-box. The e-mail may include a code for a free copy of the H&R Block’s Premium Online tax software. Even if you did get the software for free, you’d still have to pony up some cash for your state return – at least that’s the way I see it. I would only leave a comment if you are in the United States and if you can really use the software.
I forgot to mention that an e-mail might only go to those who comment in the first 24 hours of this post’s origin.

I like H&R Block’s taxcut.
Here is my comment.

I would like the software if possible.
I like it. And depending on what state you live in it might still be all free. Some states you can file your return directly online.
One of the few good things about the great old state of PA:

I like H&R Tax Cut…
I used it last year for the first time after problems with TurboTax. I liked it enough to use it again this year, so I’ll take a stab at winning it.
I like that software and could definitely use it.
This is a comment.
I liked TaxCut, I don’t need the software, as I have already done my taxes. I did post a quick review:
I got Taxcut for free this year and, I gotta say, it was worth less than that.
Crashed when I installed it, and crashed several times during use. Interface was lousy. I had to drop into the forms interface for several “common” issues.
Being able to use the software online instead of buying/upgrading it each year is a great feature. Thanks for the “contest” Lazy Man, I could use it.

I’m on the market for just this. Thanks for the chance at a good deal!
I used it last year and planned on getting it this year. Obviously, free would be better. Thanks for the chance.
I would love one of these! (But only if it works with Macs).
Death and taxes.
At least one of these can be made easier with free software.

I’m interested … to see whether using software is any faster than doing it by hand. I spend the most time digging through 1099s and trying to calculate whether a dividend is qualified or not and other arcane tax details than I do adding numbers.
I could defintely use this, I’m interested ;)
Count me in for some free software! Thanks for the generosity.
Uhmm….so can I have it? :)
Lazy Man says
I’m waiting to have official codes from the H&R Block representative…

The e-mails for this have been sent out. Congrats to Jess and JDP
I got my email on the 4th and went to the site. Got a list of what I’d need. Conveniently had most of it in a file already. Yesterday it took me all of 20 mins to complete my taxes and submit. Waiting on acceptance by the gov. It probably wouldn’t have even taken me 20 mins but there were 2 points in the forms that I was confused on and kept getting errors for that I didn’t understand and it didn’t explain very well why (one was the savers credit page and I don’t remember the other). Well, they were MY issues lol and I must have been having a duh moment. Once I got past those everything else was extremely easy.
On thing I missed though – when I used TurboTax they had a nice extra page attached to my return saying “If your income increases by X-amount you will be in the next tax bracket X%. You can plan for this by…..”. I use that to adjust my pre-tax options for health, retirement, etc. at work as well as charitable donations (I’d rather give away a little more $ to people locally than the fed gov.).
I’d say this free try has hooked me. I saw several instances where TaxCut was more thorough and easier to understand than TurboTax (of the past at least). And I think this years TaxCut is better than last years. I’d say I’m sold, even if I don’t get it free, it would be worth $20.
Note to Jess – if you haven’t yet started, you don’t need the free code until the end when you are at check out.
