I know it can be done but HOW do you add it to your refund on H&R block?? I have finished everything just waiting to add this form electronically to my refund before submitting!
DO I need to upgrade?

According to the tax rules, the Form 8379 can be filed by itself after you filed your original joint return electronically.
However, if you wish to file it with the return electronically, the Form 8379 Injured Spouse Allocation is not currently handled in any version of the online tax program.
However, the Form 8379 can be handled in the H&R Block desktop/downloadable software. To get to the Form 8379 in the H&R Block desktop/downloadable tax software, click on "Take Me To." Click search, type in 8379, and then double click in the Search Results box, the "Injured Spouse Allocation (Interview)" or "Form 8379 (Form)" option.

They really need to improve this. Turbo Tax Online Software does it with no problem and had no issues over the past two years. I had to switch to Turbo Tax after being with HR Block for years, simply because of their inability to process the 8379 Form through the online software. I was hoping after two years HR Block added this feature but seems it's not the case. Do anyone know the reason why they won't offer it as a feature to their online software?
