Any thoughts on $INTU earnings coming up? Initially, I thought it’d be pretty bad what with people missing the tax filing deadline in droves, but with $HRB crushing it, now I’m not so sure.

Ok. Well the HRB comment was sarcasm, I use an actual tax prep guy that my parents have also been using for years. So far it's been worth it. Will probably be even more worth it in 2023 at this rate.

80% chance you know more than the HRB person. I’d prepare them yourself on TurboTax. Just know it is a hassle and I’m thinking 80% you or HRB person fills it out incorrectly anyways.

I was an HRB customer for many years, but I hate their (and TT's) upsell and state efile fees. I switched to OLT.com this year after prepping my taxes with HRB/TT/FTUSA/OLT this year to compare all 4 of them, and I will be using OLT.com going forward. Best of luck

Using tax software is usually the way to go. Something like olt.com is only $9.95 for State efile, or if you like download version HRB deluxe can usually be had for $15 on sale including state

You can definitely paper file your CA return and they are fairly quick to process. Just annoying. I did OLT+FTUSA+HRB+TT this year. Like OLT for the form support, free Amend, 9.95 price, and they actually get the forms ready faster than TT!

I switched to OLT.com this year (HRB for the past 10 years, this year tried HRB+TT+FTUSA+OLT), OLT was the winner in terms of supporting the most forms, showing me the raw form data whenever I wanted, cost (only 9.95! Including state efile), no extra charge for Amending, and being "good enough" of a UI.

Amended returns are a little finicky with HRB download version. I hope you saved it. Here are the exact instructions (that I just tested myself) for how to PDF an amended state return:

Open software

Open amended return

Fed->forms->view 1040x->verify you're in the proper tax return with the changes you want

State->forms->view form you want to print->print-> two radio buttons pop up, "print for filing" and "print as shown" <-- you want to print for filing

If your return says "not for filing" then you are using the wrong button to create your PDF. In HRB you use the "print for filing" button. I've done it, works fine.

The ones you mentioned are good choices, although I’m not a TSLA true believer. But some others are VZ, DOW (Dow Inc., not the index), HRB for stable stocks with nice dividends. SBSW is a little more volatile, but has a massive dividend (5-10%).

Hrb software does. TurboTax probably does as well. It might depend on your broker more than anything for those two. I'm sure I imported robinhood trades several years ago, and this year I imported TDA trades.

You are right that Roth conversions should not be put on line 7. Your list of how Form 8606 should appear is right. I don't know HRB interface so I don't have suggestions. Keep trying, or use another tax prep.

You can run the tax software both ways and compare the results to see which may be more beneficial

Not sure if you can do that with HRB if you've already filed, you should be able to start over with a different software and do the comparison there, if you end up deciding that MFS is better then you'd need to wait til your initial return finishes processing before filing an amendment

Tax accountant here, worked for HRB many years ago. The fee had nothing to do kind of with the size of your refund, it's for the number of forms and the number of transactions (and entries).

Anyone who does charge according to the size of the refund has a vested interest in the refund being the maximum allowed using the most creative interpretations--and then some. Avoid this kind of preparer, period.

I charge my clients more if they have 153 stock transactions than if they have 53 or 35 or 5. It's a question of being paid for my time as well as my expertise.

I think a lot of people that normally went with the base package when filing taxes are going to have to up it to premium due to the meme trade boom last year. Could be a good earning play for both HRB and INTU.

HRB charges by the forms. Some forms cost more than others. More forms mean higher price. You can take out optional forms to reduce price. But that may reduce credits/deductions/refund.

If you're not happy, ask for your documents back. They have a no obligations guarantee. If you get any pushback, ask for a manager, district manager, regional manager, or corporate. They can only charge when you file with them.

Most taxpayers think their situations are simple. But they don't think what it takes to file a "simple" tax return.

Autozone, BWA, DHI, DRI, GPC, HRB, …….etc have all done well through historically weak “risk off” periods. You may be right in saying many discretionary stocks are to be shorted here, but you need to understand how institutional fund managers manage money, many of them only manage one sector, so for every sector there are managers that will look for stocks within their sector that are more recession resistant or growth oriented than others and will buy them and sell or short the others. If you can identify the stocks within each sector that qualify as those these managers will chose in a bad stock environment, you’ll do well. I’ve managed money for over two decades at large institutions, understanding money flow is probably the most important factor of investing, and this concept is the largest.

Huh, that's interesting that HRB got it wrong.

The correct number for a single filer with one job was 2 (A and D on the 2019 W-4 and with joint filers, it was 3 as you add line B. You can see this on this screenshot of Publication 15-T - employers subtract $4,300 ×2 (single) or ×3 (MFJ).

Not 100% positive because I never checked out on HRB but when I went to remove the $37 state fee it asked something to the effect are you sure you want to delete it you'll have to re-enter everything again if you change your mind. Yes I started with the HRB deluxe but once I started entering in misc income it said I had to upgrade to premium

Are you sure you cannot use HRB to print out state return to file? Have done that with several states with HRB. Is this cali thing? In any case, there is a print option for HRB to print out a copy of the state or fed return… Why does HRB fed efile also cost money? Always used the deluxe version and that has 5 free efiles per purchase. Is this because it is a premier?

I used to use TT while my wife when we were dating used HRB.

I ended up letting her move me into hers when we married. HRB routinely handled it better than TT could.

Except this year weirdly it had a lot of issues understanding we did not get the monthly child tax credit. Ended up having to remove then re-add our dependents for it to get that we were owed the extra money

This is too far down.

About ten years ago I used both TurboTax and HR Block after being a TT fan for years. For whatever reason HRB have me a significantly higher return. Maybe some credit or oddity that their software knew about that TT missed I don't know but I switched and never looked back.

Yes, you need to report the HSA contributions. There are other free or lower-cost filing alternatives if you don’t want to use HRB.

Your understanding matches mine about what your refund should be. That reported refund amount from HRB seems to not be applying the listed credit amount: $22314 owed minus $23792 paid = -$1478 (so a $1478 refund).

How far through the filing are you? Is this some sort of "summary" at the end just before submitting or do you have more information to input? Can you view your actual 1040 form (even in "preview" form)?

It's possible that the $2800 credit was already incorporated into the dollar amount reported for the "already paid" line item, but also gets listed as a separate thing. This year's CTC is fully refundable, so on the 1040 it gets included in the "total payments" section for lines 25-33. Maybe that led to some mix-up on how the summary is displayed.

The "real" answer likely shows up on the 1040 itself. If you can view the form, see how the numbers on it correspond to what HRB is showing on this summary. As long as the $2800 shows up on line 28, then whatever refund amount is on line 34 is what the IRS will be paying you.

$2800 sounds suspiciously close to the Recovery Rebate Credit (3rd stimulus payment) amount for 2 people. Are you sure that's the correct CTC amount you're eligible for? Can you post a screenshot or breakdown of the summary HRB is showing you?

I hate to give HRB money as much as the next person, but there is no free option that supports things like capital gains, form 1116, 8801, HSA, which are considered "complex" by the "Free" solutions, UNLESS your income is under $69k or whatever the number is for the IRS freefile program, and even that has limitations on state filing as well. So all in, the HRB download version is the best value if you're not under that number, and even sometimes if you are.

The download version of HRB is well worth the $17-20 sale price, and handles all tax forms with very few exceptions. The online versions always upsell you.

You are not getting around a fee with the online version, they're not stupid, they know what you did, you need to file that form and they're going to charge you for it. Either buy the download version, or use another free option that does not upsell. Online HRB/TT is shady, no two ways around it. They know you don't want to go input all your information again somewhere else, and they're going to try and capitalize on your laziness. Don't let them win.

The online version of tax software always tricks trying to get you to pay (more), it's called an upsell. You can avoid this by paying $17 for HR Block download version on sale (it's completely worth it), and the download version lets you file any tax return with no upsell, and with the added bonus that you can see all the forms and change whatever you want. $17/year is really cheap, for what you get. Never use TT or HRB online.
OR go to creditkarma.com/tax (fed+state free)
OR go to freetaxusa.com (fed free, $15 for state return)

With the choices above, I pay the $17 for the download version every year.

The IRS transcript is what HRB is referring to. It's a line by line record of the return information.

If you need a copy, you should have been provided with one when you filed last year, and you carefully archived a physical and digital record of the return and the supporting documents you used to prepare yhe return.

If you need a copy from IRS, file Form 4506, pay the $43 fee, and wait 75 to 365 days.

HRB says $43. Turbo tax had a different number but I can’t remember. So basically I should file with HRB and I’m golden.

So H&R Block is suggesting this to ensure you get the maximum AOTC amount. The AOTC covers 100% of the first $2,000 and 25% of the next $2,000 for a total benefit of $2,500. And up to 40% is "refundable" which means you get get up to $1,000 in a refund, even if you have no tax liability at all. As such, you choose to include scholarship income as income in order to maximize the credit.

HRB should show you your refund either way so see what happens with each option.

What's on your 1098-T, boxes 1-10?

If your only income is $75,759 in salary, you should be able to subtract a standard deduction of $12,550, and get a taxable income of $63,209. That results in taxes owed of $9,658. So you would owe less than $50. Basically spot on. (Remember, the goal isn't to get a refund, but to essentially end up even).

If it is saying you owe more than that, then you have other income, or something else going on with your taxes. What else is showing up on the draft return that TT or HRB has?

I couldn't tell you. My first bet would be log in and see what you can do. Second would be asking them. In the future I always recommend dropping the $17 on HR Block Deluxe download version when they have their yearly sale, because much as I hate to give HRB any money, it's the best lowest cost option available to actually be able to see and change the things you want. Online software (like CreditKarma) hides things or won't even let you do certain things. Download software you can see and change whatever you want whenever you want.

  1. Buy TT ($50) or HR B Deluxe ($17) download versions. I prefer HRB because it literally handles all situations with no upsell.
  2. Go through the full interview. It should catch everything. If you feel there's a situation it didn't catch, try the "take me to" and "search" buttons to make sure you hit that specific topic thoroughly
  3. That's it. Nobody can answer your questions, not even a CPA or IRS because an audit should not be feared if you are taking legitimate deductions and credits.

On a side note. If you’re single without any complex tax situations (real estate, investments, etc) you could do your taxes yourself fairly quickly and easily and for free. No reason to pay HRB for something that you can do online for free in probably less than an hour.

It is rather annoying that I had to create a cash app account, download the app, and then use the QR scanner on the app to log into the website. I understand multi-layer security but come on...

I just entered info into Free Tax USA - it felt more comprehensive than CA and the number matched H&R Block. I also like the user interface more than HRB (I wouldn't pay for it but I feel like it should be better since it costs money).

I initially couldn't figure out what was causing the error on CA to not match with the other two. I ended up deleting the two imported W2s and manually entering them again and it fixed the issue. I had already edited the import to fix the errors but maybe it didn't save properly. Just something be aware of!

H&R Block (HRB), Winnebaggo (WGO), Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW), Johnson Outdoors (JOUT) and LKQ.

I've been doing some research and I found those companies with good financials. However, I don't know much about them, either their current situation or their potential future growth.

Any advice about them? Would any of them be good stock to buy?

I was told by a CPA friend that the new W4 form was supposed to be designed to make things simpler and avoid the number counting from the previous W4 forms. I told him that someone at the IRS got drunk and then wrote the form because it makes no sense.

When I filled out the form earlier this year I filled in out like eight times.

I used a combinaiton of the IRS calculator and the H&R Block calculator at https://www.hrblock.com/w-4-calculator/

HRB gives better directions IMO.

I've already submitted my comments about the new W4 to https://www.improveirs.org/

This is a list of the top 20 companies that experienced the largest change in insider shares in the last seven (7) days. The SEC defines an insider as any officer, director or 10% shareholder. It is not illegal for these people to buy or sell their own shares. In fact, since most of them get paid in stock options, it is expected. However, it is illegal for them to trade on inside information that has not been made public. So for example if there are drug trial results that are bad and not public, insiders cannot dump shares. That said, many people have observed that insiders - in general - seem to have a good track record at timing their purchases. All trades that are marked as part of a 10b5 plan are excluded from this report.

H&R block's prices are high and they employ many people who don't know what they're doing. I can't tell you how many returns I've seen that were done at H&R block that were done incorrectly or were prepared in a way that gave the client a higher-than-necessary audit profile. We have a couple of tax clients that used to work at H&R block doing taxes, but they pay us to do their taxes now.

An independent tax preparer with a good reputation (preferably an EA or CPA) isn't cheap (though often cheaper than HRB), but we're talking about a complex tax situation here. It's someone who has a business and hasn't filed in 5 years. Seeing as how he's a business owner and hasn't filed in 5 years, he probably hasn't made any estimated payments during that time. He might owe tens or hundreds of thousands. It makes no sense to try to do it yourself or to use someone who might mess it up. That could cost you many thousands more than you'd pay the professional preparer.

I've used a bunch and list options in this comment. Check that whole thread - we have one every year. Basically, there's little difference. TurboTax does have the largest feature set, but if you ever get above the FreeFile limit ($72,000 for 2021) TurboTax may end up being a little more than HRB.

You could hedge your risk with a small salary - since you'll be employed by the gym or offer to work on commission.

If you're going the equity route- Get an attorney to look at the partnership/membership agreement and a tax accountant (not HRB) to look at their fillings to give you an idea of potential liabilities. It'll cost you a bit upfront but it will pay dividends down the road. You'll also want an attorney to look at material agreements and verify that the agreements don't say that you will be personally liable for the business debts.

Well you shouldn't pay until you understand the problem, but you shouldn't just ignore this.

Have you spoken to HRB? Do you understand which W2s got adjusted, and why?

HRB - the 7/16 $25c are only $0.25 ea. It just had great earnings and dipped for no reason. 11M shares shorted and they keep getting shut out at higher levels. Easy rocket emojis here. 🚀🚀🚀

I keep hearing even on CNBC today about HRB just had great earnings but despite it's down about 8% right now just because of overall market conditions today. Soooo I consider this a SALE and it's a BUY for me and as recommended on cnbc. H&R Block

$HRB earnings report in about an hour

Tax season was delayed, and with so much retail investing a ton of people are expected to opt for the premium package instead of the free version.

My bet? They crush expectations. Either way, worth a FD lotto ticket. Options are dirty cheap.

Saw a DD on a different sub, reposting here cuz I think it looks okay

>Alright, we all know that there was a record number of new investors/traders/retards last year, and they all either had to pay capital gains taxes or wanted to claim capital losses. Surprise, they now need to pay more for tax prep services.

>INTU had earnings for tax season already and somewhat missed expectations because tax season was delayed (the deadline was mid-May, not 4/15 as usual). INTU still raised their guidance for the full year, though, because they were seeing so many more people paying for the highest package than usual. When INTU missed their expected earnings, HRB's expected earnings were revised downwards and HRB's share price fell accordingly.

>However, I think HRB dropped too much, and HRB will beat current estimates. HRB reported that they were, for the first time, in years gaining market share among retail tax prep. I think this is because their new CEO has been making some great moves with the company (e.g., good ads, virtual services), but I'm not sure. For whatever reason, though, this news about gaining market share didn't do much to the stock price. It came out around the same time INTU missed earnings, so I think the miss by INTU overshadowed the fact that HRB is gaining market share.

>I'm super autistic and my career is in research, so I downloaded all old EPS estimate data (last revisions pre-earnings) and a bunch of different Google search trends (e.g., "H&R Block", "HR Block", etc.) and ran some regression models. The only Google search term to be a significant predictor of reported EPS above EPS estimates was "H&R Block near me". That search term predicted earnings surprises. Here's the five-year plot for that search term from Google trends:

>So this earnings-beat search term was at an all-time-high in late March of this year. HRB is going to kill it--unless people have changed their reason for googling "H&R Block near me" (but why google that unless you want to go use them for tax prep?).

>HRB IV is pretty low for earnings because the stock is a boomer stock and has relatively slow movement (although it's been great lately) and hardly anyone buys options on it. Call IV is around 45%, and the stock hardly needs to move at all for earnings calls to end above breakeven. For example, HRB only needs to increase about 5% for the $25c to go above breakeven. But historical movements around HRB earnings from big surprises have usually been movements of 15-20%, possibly because of its relatively low market cap ($4.7B); even small surprises usually lead to 4-10% movements. HRB also usually runs up into earnings, so if you buy a call now you would benefit from that run-up. Alternatively, theta sucks, so if you don't think it'll have a run up to earnings (earnings for HRB is 6/15), waiting until market close 6/14 works too.

I might toss some dosh at this 🥸

If you were confident that a lot of people will have suddenly more complicated taxes in 2022, what would you think about H&R Block ($HRB) or Intuit ($INTU)

Intuit looks pretty damn good, from pretty much any time interval. That's probably a good sign, but as a newish investor, I'm also wondering if there's a perspective where they have less room to grow than H&R Block.

Though also, H&R has been around forever, and the history of the price action doesn't look promising. Any insights on valuing these two companies?

Any tax professional will have to meet some minimum standards of security and confidentiality, but some have better security than others. This is different than a general tax preparer, because there's no certification required to be a paid tax preparer and there's usually no oversight.

I can't recommend H&R Block because I've never used them, and I've read some awful things where they've screwed up someone's tax return. The problem is most preparers at HRB aren't credentialed, and they don't seem to have a good system for quality review which could catch mistakes. So you might get someone great, or you might get someone who seems great but isn't.

If you didn't have much business income and qualify for credits then you might be ok for 2020, but it's better to try to get the return done before July 15 just in case. The Failure to File penalties are the ones that really hurt, esp if you are more than 60 days late.
