Software suppliers woo customers with free e-tax filing services

US software suppliers aim to boost business with online tax filing support

US Software suppliers have begun to offer free online tax filing services in
the latest effort to retain customers in an increasingly tough market.

H&R Block is to offer customers the facility to electronically file up to
five federal tax returns in a tax season. Rival Intuit is also allowing
customers to prepare and print multiple returns and e-filing for up to five
returns at no cost, WebCPA reported.

Sabrina Wiewel, H&R Block president of digital tax, said: ‘We understand
that in this tough economy, Americans are watching every dollar and don’t want
to be surprised by additional tax preparation costs or add-on features fees.’

Intuit said the new offer would result in the deferral of approximately $70m
of revenue from its second fiscal quarter to its third fiscal quarter.
