File Your Taxes With Ease ~ GIVEAWAY (2 WINNERS!)

Ah...taxes. This time of year always seems to sneak up on us, and before we know it, we're sorting through receipts, forms and paperwork as we file our taxes from the previous year. Things have been changing in the "tax world" as well and one of these chances is that many families are choosing to file their taxes electronically instead of on paper. Simply put - we're using using a tax program that can either be loaded onto your computer, or we're filing our taxes with a tax program online. This method is a LOT simpler than the previous paper-method.

This year we've tried out a new tax program from H&R Block. They have been serving Canada for over 40 years and are currently Canada's leading tax service company. H&R Block is offers both fast and accurate tax preparation services as well as bookkeeping and accounting support. The experts at H&R Block are ready to provide assistance, help and solutions.

H&R Block has two different software options for you and your family to explore and use this tax season. The first is the H&R Block At Home Tax downloadable software. This can be downloaded directly onto your computer (PC Users only) and comes with some very helpful benefits, such as Free Audit Assistance, Free “Canadian Tax Tips for Dummies” and Free SOS online backup! It makes the transition to electronic filing simple! This version also allows you to keep your tax files on your computer for future reference! And at $29.99 the price is right was well!

**Effective until Feb 25th, 2013 - there's a discount code on the website, SAVE4, allowing you to purchase the downloadable software for $19.99!!

A second option (which is great for both PC and MAC users!) is H&R Block At Home online. This is just like the downloadable version, except it is an online product that is certified for NETFILE by CRA. It is accurate, easy to use and guess what? You may even receive your tax refunds in as little as eight days! This version comes at an even better price of $15.95 for the first return, $10 for the second one and all returns after the first two are FREE!

Andrea's Thoughts:
We have filed our taxes electronically now for several years...although this is the first year that we have used H&R Block At Home. In comparison to the other program we used, it has more detail in some areas and less detail in others. Overall, it was quite similar and we found it was easy to follow and learn how to use the program. The tutorial was easy to follow, though slightly less detailed than the program we've used in the past. There were a few specific benefits of H&R Home. The ability to easily click on and view any of your forms within your return was very helpful. As well, the ease of being able to view your entire tax return once you have finished entering your information was very nice. It gives a nice overview of your past year and of the return that you will be filing. Overall, we were pleased with H&R Block At Home...and we're also happy to report that we've got another years taxes finished and filed!

Julie's Thoughts:
Like Andrea's family, we've also been filing electronically a few years now. We've always used the same program and were curious to see how the H&R Block At Home compared. "Purchasing" the program went smoothly, and the download information and activation code was sent within about 10 minutes. Once the tax bug bites - you can get going with your return almost immediately! :) Installing the program was also easy, and, once you've activated and registered, you can access the tutorial, which walks you through the basic parts of the program and the process. What we liked:
there are little tips and explanataions for most sections that help you decide if they're applicable, or what that tax-speak really means!
it's easy to add information about family members, and flip among them to add appropriate information from receipts, tax papers etc.
One thing we liked about the other program, is that it always has the total refund/payment on the screen. In H&R Block At Home, you have to click through to another tab to find that out. Easy enough, but not right there.

WIN IT! H&R Block is giving away TWO free copies of H&R Block At Home Online (available to either PC or MAC users). In order to enter, please follow the instructions on the form below. Open to Canada only. Contest ends March 9, 2013.
