IIRC, the HRB software does not know how to fill out form 1116. Right?
It's pretty straightforward to fill it out yourself using the software, IMO, as long as you read the instructions.

Ugh, after buying the software, when I try to select a state they say they don't support Part Year resident forms for Hawaii. So I guess I will have to manually figure out my HI taxes. Why wouldn't they disclose this prior to purchasing the software?

You can contact them directly for a refund (I've done it) if they say they support something but do not, or if it's within the return period, you can contact the seller.

There's no way of knowing if TurboTax supports it though.

For those like me that prefer the disc, Amazon has Deluxe+state for $22.50.

Yes that's true, I didn't say anything about TT

Well yeah, but if I get a HRB refund, I'd need to replace it with something.

FYI, for those who still need it H&R Block Deluxe + State dropped to $19.99 at Amazon today. That's the best price they've had on this year's edition.

Thanks for the heads up. This is the CD version. I don't need the state (PA has their own) but there are 5 free federal e-files ( I do my brother and sister's return too). Can't beleive I can do 3 federal e-files for $19.99. Am I missing something? In the past I've always used online versions of tax software.

And for last year's customers of HRB, today I got the CD in the mailbox with the $19.99 price to activate.
Too bad I already got it for $19.99 from Newegg on Black Friday as download.

Just to clarify, the download versions (for PC and Mac) are also $19.99, not just the disc version. You can select the download versions from that link.
