I'm not clear on:
"TurboTax: Summary screens for each category showing year-to-year comparison. HRB lacks this. It really helps to have Y-to-Y numbers of each topic if you are choosing topics. To me, this makes TT worth it."

Is this done at the end of each topic or while doing a topic ?
By topic I'm guessing you mean as an example: Interest. ?
This is best described with a picture. HRB is on the left, TT is on the right. You can see TT presents columns of numbers, the left column is last year, the right is the current year in progress. (Of course I blocked out some numbers here.)

HRB is very spare with just a simple "goto" screen. TT gives summary computations. Oh, and some cute icons. I don't care about the icons, just the numbers.

HRB Business for a partnership tax return (1065) includes at least 3 states at no extra charge, including relatively unpopulated ones like North Dakota. The actual policy may be "unlimited number of states for no extra charge" and may apply to other entities supported by HRB Business, such as a trust tax return (1041).
