H&R Block-problems attaching QBI statement when e-filing

Just wanted to save others the hassle I ran into trying to attach the signed Qualified Business Income statement when e-fling with H&R Block (downloaded software-not online version).

Attached is copy of the instructions provided during the interview that led me to believe that the statement needed to be attached prior to hitting the final submit button for e-filing. Actually, you have to hit the final submit and then you are finally prompted to attach the statement.

This may be intuitive to most of you, but I wasted a lot of time talking to the H&R Block help desk (not helpful) to find out how to get the statement attached before submitting. Finally just decided to submit anyway (and wait for IRS to request the signed form) and discovered that only after submitting are you prompted to attach.

Not to thread dump, but I had issues w/H&R Block tax program trying to use my Federal refund to purchase Savings Bonds. There is no apparent way of doing this via Interview, and finally had to go to Forms and use Form 8888, then tell it I wanted an electronic refund. All of this was for naught as my electronic submission was rejected twice by the IRS.

At first I thought it was some other issue (as the rejection code was pretty useless even after trying to find information via google). I finally took out Form 8888 and instead applied my refund to my 2019 estimated and the electronic submission then worked. I did try to call the support center, but was just on an endless hold.

In the end I wasn't willing to go the paper route on my submission and just gave up on the savings bond purchase.

Hi dahser. IIRC the prompt to attach the QBI came up immediately after hitting the submit button, before IRS accepted the return. I used the premium version of the software.
