It’s almost that time of year again. The benefit of “old-school” desktop tax software is that it doesn’t require your Social Security Number and financial details to be stored in the “cloud”, a fancy word for a third-party server where it can be copied or hacked. Amazon has H&R Block Deluxe Federal + State for $22.49 (50% off the list price $45). This is the lowest price of the year so far per CamelCamelCamel. Last year, the lowest price was $18 during a 24-hour”Deal of of the Day” flash sale.

H&R Block Deluxe includes guidance for stock gains and losses, home mortgage interest deduction, and other itemized deductions. Compare that against TurboTax Desktop Deluxe which makes you upgrade to TurboTax Premier to get “extra guidance” for stock sales and dividends (but does include rental properties). The other versions are all 50% off as well. H&R Block Premium is $32.49 and includes rental properties and self-employment. All flavors include “Refund Bonus” where you can a 4% bonus if you take your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card.

If you prefer TurboTax, right now TurboTax Desktop Deluxe + State 2019 is $39.88, which is also a discounted price ($10 off) but you might find it cheaper later during a 24-hour flash sale. I’ve always liked the ability of TurboTax to automatically import 1099-B forms from stock brokers, which saves time.

Keep in mind that for both H&R Block and TurboTax desktop Fed+State products, Federal e-Files are included but State e-File is extra ($19.95/19.99 each). You can print the (usually shorter) state return for free and snail mail it in if you don’t have a free State e-File option.
