Updating Your Software
H&R Block's tax filing software, TaxCut, is one of the two leading brands of tax filing software on the market. (TurboTax is the other.) This program allows you to easily create and file your tax return forms. But, TaxCut, just like TurboTax, comes with its fair share of issues.
One common problem is not being able to update your software when new updates come out. Many different types of issues can cause this, but one of the main problems comes from your firewall not allowing the updates.
To fix the update issues, try one of the following methods.
1. Disable your firewall. You will probably need to follow the instructions on your firewall software to do this.
2. Check the site http://www.taxcut.com/updates to see if your software has an URL exceptions feature. This way, you don't need to turn off your firewall and possibly allow your computer to be infected with viruses. Instead, your firewall software will know to allow TaxCut to access the required updates.
3. Make sure that you are connected to the Internet.
