This is the second year in a row that I have had to file a General Business Credit form 3800 with my federal 1040. This is a very common form and Turbo Tax allows it to be efiled. I have confirmed with the IRS that they accept efile returns with form 3800. I have used H&R Block from before it even had the H&R block brand name. My taxes pass the error and audit checks with flying colors. This will be the absolute last year that I use this software since I can't e-file - there is no point in using it if I have to print everything, mail it and wait for my refund. Has anyone else had this situation? The customer service rep for H&R Block confirmed that it is allowed to be efiled but their software doesn't support it........ It would sure be nice if one of the programmers could come up with a fix before the filing deadline. Ironically enough - I use the H&R block Premium + Business and the business version allows e filing with a form 3800.

I am having a similar problem but not with form 3800 but form 8283. I am blocked from e-filing. I tried to remove the form and e-file but it is not allowing that to happen. I will not purchase H&R Block software again if I cannot e-file. I don't mind sending forms in later after I e-file but I should not pay for the ability to e-file then be blocked from using e-file.

I have been blocked from e-filing my father's tax return for years because I need a second page for Form 1116. I have to use more than four columns. I have been blocked from e-filing my returns due to Form 8959.

So the Premier + Business edition worked for you for last year's taxes?
I just spoke to the rep, he said they support efile of 3800, I told him I couldn't do it last year with Deluxe version, he didn't have much to say......I don;t know whether Deluxe now supports it, or if I would have to buy the Premier + Business, or if he just didn't know what he was talking about.....
