H&R Block Tax Software review

H&R Block has helped me a few years when I needed my taxes done right and in the nick of the time. I sometimes waited to the last minute and even so, they were able to help me without me having to spend a lot of time or money. They were also very thorough about what I could claim, where I could find more money to save and were able to get me the best return for my money. I really appreciate that.
