My accountant is retiring, what software do you use that will get me no mistakes and no audits?

Fairly complicated, own home, IRA's, etc...

Home ownership and retirement accounts do not make for a complicated return. The big names are all similar. I’ve used H&R Block, and now TurboTax for several years. They’ll be accurate as long as your inputs are; mistakes will be operator error.

How much was your CPA charging you for a 1040?

I use H&R Block Premium. This past year I changed jobs, bought a house, sold a house, moved, have retirement accounts, bought a car, sold a car and have kids in school and am married. I was done in 75 minutes.

You might be free using the online version. Only my form 1099 kicked me to the $27 one.

Sounds like your return is fairly simple. I use H&R Block Premium for my personal and business return. Get all your 1099s, etc and work through the questions and you will be fine.

H&R Block Premium can be had for $30 to $40 online. It does Federal and a single state of your choice. Easy peasy question and answer format. Even a caveman can do it. I've used tax software for 28 years with few if any problems..

I use TurboTax, have used it for 10+ years without issue. My return is simple though.

I paid 5$ for hr block deluxe software (not online software)
free state filing just had to copy over the details (ohio has free online tax)
local through Central Collection agency e-file.

You can do the state with H&R block for another 20$

Premium version (1 above deluxe) was another 5$

Details here although its now 9.95 for deluxe and 15 for premium

I have been using H&R Block (previously Kiplinger) for probably 15 years.
Easy to navigate, seems to ask all the right questions, and they give you and audit guarantee (they will assist you if you do get audited, not sure how that works though).

I use H&R Premium. My wife and I are retired. We have multiple income sources and I continue to work part-time. I completed Federal and state tax returns in one afternoon. I have used H&R Premium software for many years and have confidence in it.
