As I’ve said countless times, no tax pro who is worth his/her salt has any reason to have the slightest bit of fear about losing clients to any of the do it yourself tax programs. In fact, just as there has long been a very lucrative market for us real tax pros in cleaning up H&R Block returns, there is similar opportunity in unscrambling DIY tax returns for those folks foolish enough to think a computer program can replace the expertise of an experienced human tax pro.

I don’t have time to answer more hate mail. So, for any H&R Block folks whose feelings may be hurt by the above comment, you need to lighten up and face reality. For at least the first two decades of my career, it was a frequent saying among CPAs and EAs that H&R Block was the best thing out there for generating business amending their returns. That’s a fact. Accept it and move on.
