mod*mom giveaway :: 3 tax return online prep, efiling + support $110
tango is a new service by h&r block that makes filing your taxes more fun!
i spent most of sunday + monday doing my taxes with the irs online forms.
luckily, h&r block had contacted me recently about sponsoring a giveaway,
so i asked them if i could review the online service first to see if it was good.
they sent me a link to their new service called tango + i'm so glad they did!
tango includes online preparation of federal + state returns with efiling, live 24/7 tax support by phone, chat or email + year-round audit protection ($70 value, much cheaper than schlepping my files into an h&r block office).
i had already done all the forms, schedules + math the hard way, so i had amounts i thought i'd be refunded, but i wasn't sure why i wasn't getting some of the credits i qualified for, so i really appreciated the ease of doing my taxes again with the tango interface + guess what?! i'm getting $600 more back from the irs. i don't know why, i didn't check that math, but yay!
h&r block wants to know what mod*mom readers think of tango + they want you to try out tango free. you don't pay anything until you "file" + maybe you'll win free tango federal + state efiling or taxcut federal efiling!
to enter to win tango or taxcut online preparation, efiling + support,
tell me in the "comments" what are your favorite tango features+ why?
(include your email address + web url, so i can contact you when you win!)

So that's what you've been doing? I've been dreading doing my taxes, but that sounds fun, so I'll check it out and hope I win, but either way it is a better deal than I paid last year and I like to do it myself too.
Good morning, mod-mom,
By Loving Her Beautiful, at 2/27/2008 7:22 AM
I like that I can do it from home, take my time, and be walked through the steps. All at a great price! Please enter me!
By suzzcq70, at 2/27/2008 10:42 AM
Just starting thinking about this tax thing - can't believe it's that time again!! Anyhow, I love the unlimited tax support because I've always run into questions while I'm trying to file and then I end up trying to look it up in my dummies book, though half the time I'm still not sure, so I hafta call one of my buddies and plead for help. :) This would be great!
By kevnjacks, at 2/27/2008 12:02 PM
My husband decided to do our taxes on his own this year. The unlimited support is definitely the best part for me. It's not that I don't trust my DH with our taxes, but... ok, I kinda don't! ;)
By Lissete, at 2/27/2008 8:21 PM
I think my fav feature is that I can do it at home amidst caring for a toddler and newborn! VEry convenient ;)

how funny that they have downloadable wallpapers! tango's got quite the sense of humor, something you don't find much in the tax world. well, i would love to try it out. i could use all the help i can get. and i love that it looks easy and i can do it from home, online. nice!
By you da mom!, at 3/09/2008 10:47 AM
this is something I really need!
It's great.you can take your time and do it at home at your pace.
By danosor, at 3/16/2008 7:01 AM
you can take your time and do it at home and it looks easy
By Unknown, at 3/16/2008 7:48 AM
The fact you can do both federal and state.
By Unknown, at 3/16/2008 9:25 AM
All the features sound great, but live support 24/7 is the best. I don't always get things done by a "normal schedule" standard so extra help anytime appeals to me. Thank you for the contest!
i can really trust h&rblock so that alone sells me on this product. I also love having my taxes go through step by step in easy to understand language
By Princess Golden Hair, at 3/16/2008 5:13 PM
the fact that h&R is a trusted named and the live support on both fed.and state and that you can do this all at home anytime
By TheresaJenkins, at 3/16/2008 8:30 PM
I like the idea of doing it at home, toddlers don't do well at an office and if I get stuck their is help
By noreen, at 3/16/2008 11:23 PM
As a CPA, I would say people are missing a lot of credits and deductions when they do it themselves.
By idahomom, at 3/17/2008 5:16 AM
I procrastinate shamelessly when it comes to taxes. This would help me get it done.
By Babalu, at 3/17/2008 2:10 PM
I like because its do-it-yourself.
do it at home is easy
By supermax, at 3/17/2008 5:19 PM
...looks like Tango has great support, 24/7, and it works with a wide variety of browsers, both PC & Mac !!!
By Brian E., at 3/17/2008 11:19 PM
ty 4 the great contest!its nice they have 24 hour support!
By masonsgranny59, at 3/18/2008 12:50 AM
This sounds great! We use Turbo Tax but I'm never sure we did it right.
By Taryn, at 3/18/2008 11:10 AM
24-hour support is up my alley, considering it's always the middle of the night when I take care of stuff like this!
By Jenna, at 3/18/2008 1:37 PM
i think th best feature is that you get 24 hour live tax support because having a child makes my days very short!
By Unknown, at 3/18/2008 1:50 PM
i love the fact that its thru h and r block and that you have 24 hr help if needed. great giveaway, thanks!
By Mary512, at 3/18/2008 2:32 PM
The 24/7 support looks best to me. I still haven't finished my tax prep for this year and I think I may have missed out with our busy accountant. Due to our employment situation, I know I'll need the help, but I don't know what day or hour I'll be ready for it!
By Diana (Ladybug Limited), at 3/18/2008 2:37 PM
oops... forgot to add my email and blog address. email is hellomary018 AT yahoo DOT com My blog is mommyland512.blogspot.com Thanks!
By Mary512, at 3/18/2008 2:37 PM
I prefer preparing my tax return myself but usually have some questions - I can do it at home at my own speed.
i'm still working on my tax reurn but more then any thing i love to enter the contest
By jenny, at 3/18/2008 4:40 PM
You can reach customer support 24/7
I would like to do it at home - slow and easy - no pressure
By JOYVEN, at 3/18/2008 10:28 PM
This is something I could use especially step by step help. Great
Wow, a blog site I have not yet visited that I can recall. This is great!
By Giulianna @ Family Blueprint, at 3/19/2008 12:11 AM
I love that they handle most tax scenarios & provide a list of documents-to-gather in preparation for filing. Yeah! Thanks for hosting!
By cltgrace, at 3/19/2008 12:21 AM
I like that I can use it on Windows PC, Mac or Linux platform. Love my Mac!
By J_Mama, at 3/19/2008 2:51 AM
I'm glad I can use it on the Mac. I also need the unlimited tax & technical support!
By Rockin' Mama, at 3/19/2008 6:03 AM
It seems to be very easy to use and I love that you can e-file.
By carissaad, at 3/19/2008 7:05 AM
worry-free audit support is the feature that appeals to me because it would be nice to know that you had someone to support you and provide the information in case you get audited by our friendly beloved IRS.
By Unknown, at 3/19/2008 9:47 AM
One great feature is the year-round audit protection with Worry-free Audit Support. It really puts your mind at ease about doing your own taxes!!! Thank you so much for offering this wonderful and very useful giveaway.
By Unknown, at 3/19/2008 10:39 AM
The 24 hour support would be my favorite.
By Bakersdozen, at 3/19/2008 5:31 PM
The fact that you have online access to real tax pros is my favorite feature. It would come in handy if I have any questions and just a great feature that I could really use.
By KristenH, at 3/19/2008 5:48 PM
Getting it done next week-mine is complicated. But my kids who have easier ones to prepare and are very knowledgeable would love to use this. email@example.com
By Unknown, at 3/19/2008 7:41 PM
I need all the phone 24/7 support I can get...I procrastinate and worry til the wee hours...
By Imaterri, at 3/19/2008 8:22 PM
Tango is (was) a nice idea in theory but competed with H&R Block’s online products… Block officially pulled the plug for Tango, Oct. 2008
