Itemized Deductions Itemized deductions also reduce your taxable income. Ex: If you're in the 15% tax bracket, every $1,000 in itemized deductions knocks $150 off of your tax bill. You might benefit from itemizing your deductions on Form 1040, Schedule A if you:

The ease of using the product is great. I like that each year I can import the previous years data. What a time saving feature that is.
I like that I can easily enter my info and H& R block will alert me with any potential problems. I have set up an account and my previous years are already there so I can compare between years. H& R Block usually sends me a discount each year as well for being a repeat customer. I haven't had to contact them for problems so I can't assess any customer service interaction. I can also easily have them prepare the state forms with just a few more questions. It has been an additional $37, but I like the ease it provides.
H&R Block makes paying your taxes so easy. They do all the hard work for you and make it super simple.
Always easy to use and fast to get taxes done. I have used for 6 years now and have no complaints.
My husband and I use H&R Block every year for our taxes. We are in College and it is very simple to follow. We love it and will continue to use them every year!
We’ve done our taxes since 2000 with H&R Block. E we completely trust and appreciate them and their attention to detail and quality
I liked the convenience of H&R Block when I needed help preparing my taxes. I feel that the customer service was good and they helped me in a timely manner. I would recommend them for simple tax solutions.
Don't do it. Thankfully there was a mistake on my return that needed further investigation, that's when the IRS realized I was owed OVER A GRAND MORE than the tax preparer claimed!!!! This was in the Lady's Island SC office. I met someone else that had the same experience so please. Don't waste your money. They act like they have no idea what's going on in there.
They have a mobile app that is very easy to use. Taxes don’t take a ton of time. And they have always seemed to get me the best tax return.
All the staff was super friendly. I was very pleased with the tax preparer. Asked a lot of questions. I am confident My return was prepared accurately. Very easy.
I have used H&R Block for years and will continue to use them. They are professional and the best in their line of business.
H&R Block was timely and had excellent customer service during our transitions through the years!
Really great place for taxes. Everytime my family goes it's a quick in and out process.
Easy to schedule with my favorite tax professional. Been using them for 5 years now. Originally went to them after another accountant messed some things up and H&R Block got it all fixed up with minimal effort from me.
Professionalism, Courteous, good communication and recommendations, I like the care that they take to the clients
I go every year not one problem always a good experience. Appointments kept on time
I love the ease that this service has provided me when doing my own taxes. As a young adult, I found that this website provided me with much direction to accomplish the goal of what I needed. The only thing I do not like is the frequency of emails that come to me from using this service, It can be very repetitive and overbearing.
Had a lot to claim on my taxes and was afraid I'd miss something so I went to H&R Block and they helped me get the maximum return and answered all my questions
For a complex tax returns nothing can be working with an H&R Block agent. They are very well-versed in the new tax law and I am very professional.
I’ve been going to H&R Block for Long time. I only like service from one particular place. I believe not everyone is Experience as others. Overall I love H&R Block.
There software is really good, super easy to understand and they almost always offer some sort of discount during tax season!
Very good experience! They were knowledgable and answered my questions. Also have card services to get money back fast.
H&R Block is a great company to do your taxes with. Doing your taxes online is easy. H&R Block walks you through it.

Easy to use and excellent tax advisor experts when needed. H&R Block is highly recommendable.
I have always gone to H&R Block because of their reliability and track record. The many different people that I have had as preparers have always been knowledgeable and considerate.. There has never been a problem with any of my returns and the preparers have always answered any questions I have ever had.
They use to be a good company to file taxes through until 2010! They made several mistakes and refused to fix them!
I come from an accounting background and H&R Block made it really easy to file my own taxes. They keep it simple while maximizing your return.
Excellent and fast service. The office staff is amazingly helpful. Dropped my taxes off and they were ready 3 hrs later
I am happy with the software as it had accurate calculations of my taxes and is easy to use. I used this software several years in the past and only switched to a different one since my employer subsidized the other product. I was happy with the product and my father has been using it for the past 15 years after switching from the other product as he prefers H&R Block.

I have been dealing with Ed A for four years now. He Always goes the extra mile for me whenever he does my taxes
Low cost, but not very helpful. You get what you pay for. In order to get help, you have to pay extra.
H&R Block has done our taxes for almost 10 years now. They are quick, friendly and thorough.
I've used them almost all my working life all the way up until 2 years ago they missed my taxes up so bad I had to travel from Michigan to Georgia two or three different times all because of an error on their part something that shouldn't have even happened almost cause me to miss the tax deadline along with penalty fees and everything so I decided not to use them anymore
It’s nice not having to complete tax things myself, but I think they are way overpriced. However, I’ve always had good experiences.
We’ve been using HR Block for over 6 years and our tax professional Jim H is patient, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. He gives great advice to help ensure that we never run into unexpected tax problems every year.
We filed our taxes through these guys one year and their fees were so high and the associate's there were highly rude.
I use their online filing. They catch everything, even their downloaded version. It catches things i wouldn't have.
This company is okay to use if you do not have any specialized needs. I would not recommend this company if you have a business that requires itemized expenses or if you own a business.
I can't say nothing else but excellent job. This people made my taxes easy going.
Wonderful service, easy to use app and fast service. I love that they keep track of my records
Its been a few years but when we did use them theyvwere very professional and knew what they were doing
Bad. The man doing my taxes for 2019 had an attitude. And assumed I couldn't pay to have my taxes done (I could and did).
Program is very easy to download and it is easy to fill out and they do a great job of explaining things
A lot of tax advisors are new people or washed up. It seems as theyre not familiar with all tax breaks

I used their online tax services and have gone into the office for assistance and they are always helpful. The online system is easy to use for even the most tax challenged individuals. And the email and app notifications kept me posted on the status of my returns so I didn’t have to contact them for updates.

After 15 years they are horrible and customer service sucks. Manager was too lazy to look into there mistakes
We have been doing business with H & R for the better part of 15 years-8 years in the Bellevue WA location where we reside now. I guess the biggest reason for the 4 star rating instead of 5 is because of inconsistency. Our tax person is super nice and very intelligent but I think that perhaps a bit overwhelmed!? That office stays quite busy!
always done well, found me deductions I did not know I had,
The office I went to was very helpful. My agent was super nice and helpful. She explain it all with detail, she answered all my questions. Overall service was great but the price for simple form ouch! Its free online? Its good if you're new and have questions or have a large form.
Switched to from TurboTax and found H&R block to be more user friendly. I loved how quick and easy filing was and the live chat agents were very helpful.
