It’s that time of year again, and just like every other year, I have April 15th marked on my calendar with a skull and cross bones. (I’m kidding.) Whether you are preparing to write Uncle Sam a hefty check or you are anticipating a fat refund, it is clearly in your best interest to make sure that your tax returns are complete and error free and that they contain all the deductions you might be entitled to.

H&R Block Premium
Overall, H&R Block Premium isn’t all that different from the free apps. Like them, it uses an interview process to build your return. However, the interface is clean and makes it easy to jump around whenever necessary.
One thing that H&R Block Premium offers that the free apps don’t is the ability to file a state return. One state is included in the price, and you can download the state-specific software through the user interface.
