H&R Block offers Mac, iPad tax lodgement - at a price

The ATO still isn't providing Mac-compatible tax lodgement software, but H&R Block reckons it can fill the gap.

H&R Block officials say the company's do-it-yourself tax preparation service works with Macs and iPads even though the ATO's E-Tax system is still Windows-only.

“Apple users can access the online software which guides you step by step through the tax return process," said Frank Brass, regional director H&R Block.

"Based on your upfront answers, the adaptive program requires you to complete only the sections that you have indicated are relevant to your tax situation.

"This adaptive, rather than exhaustive (like E-Tax or Tax Pack), approach means that your tax return can be completed in about 20 minutes."

The finished return is checked by the company before being lodged with the ATO.

"Nothing can completely take the place of a trusted tax accountant," added Mr Brass.

The service costs $49.
