Tax time... Burn in hell, Intuit and H&R Block...
Though apparently W2 import is free now, that's new.

Edit: The whole point of being able to import it is so it takes LESS TIME :evil:

It depends on how complicated your taxes are. Our returns, with schedules, usually run in excess of 40 pages. I view the payment to H&R Block online to be well worth it, especially since it’s tax deductible :mrgreen:

74 is not high enough, you gotta cook meatloaf at 350 degrees at least.

Oh, Meat Loaf, the singer. Too young.

Having used H&R Block software, besides the fact that I can tell you it is a PITA to use, there is often many unnecessary pages it will spit out.

Why is the speed in (distance)/seconds?! No one knows those! mi/h or even km/h would be more useful for a general audience.
What's more informative? .1357 mi/s or 488.52 mi/h? Case rested.
