The benefit of “old-school” desktop tax software is that it doesn’t require your Social Security Number and income details to be stored in the “cloud”, a fancy word for a third-party server where it can be copied or hacked.

As a Cyber Monday deal, Amazon has TurboTax Deluxe 2023, Federal & State + $10 Amazon Gift Card for $45.99 in either Download or Disc versions. That’s a pretty solid net price for TurboTax these days. You also get 5 Federal e-Files so you can share the software with family and friends. (Click here to view the Amazon links if you can’t see them.)

H&R Block Deluxe includes guidance for stock gains and losses, home mortgage interest deduction, and other itemized deductions. All flavors include “Refund Bonus” where you can a 2% bonus if you take your refund in the form of an Amazon gift card.

State e-File is extra ($20 per state). I would personally just print the (usually shorter) state return out and snail mail it in if you don’t have a free State e-File option.

Note that TurboTax Deluxe lets you input stocks sale inforation, but does not include “guidance”. For that, you’ll need TurboTax Premier 2023 Fed/State + $10 Amazon Gift Card for $73. This is what makes H&R Block a more affordable alternative, if you are willing to make the switch. However, I also understand the urge to stick with what works.
