H&R Block Tax software running on a Mac?

Postby 2quik6 » Tue Jan 29, 2013 2:50 pm

I have used this software for years on a Windows machine, but this year switched to a Mac. The software is avail for Mac, but wondering if it will be able to use my data file that was created last year on Windows to import at the beginning of the process? Anyone know or has done this already? I don't find anything related to this on the H&R Block site.

Hi 2quik6,

What is the file format of the data on your windows machine?

Kind regards,

Easily imports your W-2, 1099 and last year's information from TurboTax® and H&R Block At Home™ software

They make no distinction between Mac and Windows. The opening screen for has this:
Start a New Return
You'll be able to import last year's data from TaxCut or TurboTax.


I guess they forgot to update the opening screen in the last two years, TaxCut now being H&R Block At Home. :)

It's just a .T11 file for last year. Its not a csv or xcel type file, its not readable when opened with an editor.
I still have a spare Windows machine but would rather get the mac version if I know it will import last years info from that .t11 file.

This thread is now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (software).

I never found an answer and the help line would never answer, so I ordered and downloaded it for Mac, and it imported the previous years info entered on a Windows XP based program just fine!
