Mac-Friendly Site for Free Filiing Taxes
April 14, 2007 3:27 PM   Subscribe

Last year, I used H&R Block's web site to file my taxes. At the time, I was working on a PC laptop. Now, I'm using Mac, and none of the h&r tax filing apps are rendering properly. I tried using Firefox, Safari, Explorer, and Opera to no avail. Are there any 'free file Companies' on the web for Mac-Users?

Best answer: I've used TaxAct the past few years (on a Mac) with no problems.

TaxACT works fine in Safari. While the federal return is "Totally FREE" the state is $13, but I think that's normal.

state returns from H&R Block are $30 so thats definately an improvement.

I used Turbo Tax with OS X and Firefox. No problems except a slight shifting of the content on the page when I renamed the PDF to print out for my records/to mail. If you don't rename it, it prints out fine. (And I did rename it after printing because it still shows up fine on screen and I doubt I'll be audited. Knock wood.)

Hmm, that's odd, I've used H&R Block on OS X for my taxes for the last 3 years and have never had any trouble. I've always used either Camino or Safari.

What exactly happens when you try to use it?

Ditto for Firefox on Mac w/H&R Block.

Ditto. Try turning off plugins and popup-blocker.

I used H&R Block in Safari this year and had no problems at all. In what way does it not render correctly?

I'm using TaxAct on my mac right now, and it's working great.

I've had no problems with H&R Block on Firefox; have you recently updated to the new version?
