H&R Block Tax Credit Issues

I tried doing my taxes this weekend using H&R Block (I always TurboTax in previous years). I decided to use H&R Block for the 10% Amazon refund bonus. It's not worth the headache. The only EV tax credit that H&R Block seems to support is the $7500 federal tax credit (30%). It does not support the EV charger installation federal credit or the Colorado state EV credit ($6000). It's been such a hassle. I'd recommend to everyone that hasn't done their taxes yet, to avoid H&R Block.
 
they are known as blockheads for a reason.
in all seriousness programs like that are geared towards the masses of people who have fairly simple returns, once you get a bit out of the mainstream most of those programs cannot handle some unique situations that people have. consider finding a professional to help you along.
 
You may have troubles claiming the alternative fuel infrastructure credit and the $7,500 federal credit the same year regardless of which tax prep software/company you use. But the state credit should be completely separate. I've been using TurboTax for over a decade with great results. Last year there was some sort of Amazon refund bonus offer if you bought TurboTax through Amazon. I looked at the terms and some online reviews of the refund bonus and it seemed very shady. I opted to just get my refund direct deposited to my bank account as usual and everything went well.
