Download and Install Updates Yourself

The State update includes changes we've made to H&R Block At Home including updates to draft versions of forms that were not finalized by the IRS at the time we originally shipped H&R Block At Home.

If you're unable to update within H&R Block At Home, you can download the update from our Web site by completing the following steps:

  1. Select your state from the dropdown list; then click the "Download Update" button.
    If you don't see your state in the drop-down menu, then an update hasn't been released yet. Please check back at a later date.

  2. When prompted to save the update file to disk, save it to your desktop. The file will be named H&R Block At Home_2009_California_UpdaterB.dmg or something similar, depending on which version of H&R Block At Home you are updating.
  3. Close H&R Block At Home, if it is open.
  4. Double-click the update file (example H&R Block At Home_2009_California_UpdaterB.dmg) on your desktop (or in another location you saved it to).
  5. To complete the installation, follow the instructions displayed by the update program.
