Why Use H&R Block to File Your Tax Return
You can always shop around in your local area to see how much the various companies in your area charge for tax preparation services.
But don’t confuse price with quality. You want to ensure the company you use to file your tax return not only has a stellar reputation, but that they offer a guarantee for the services they provide.
H&R Block certainly meets both of those qualifications.
And saving $25 on a personal return is a great deal.
In addition to providing quality tax preparation services, H&R Block will go the extra mile to ensure you have a smooth and transparent process.
You will know how much your tax return will cost before you start your return. Prices begin at $69 per tax return, not counting state tax returns or any discounts, such as the $25 coupon code listed above.
You will need to visit an H&R Block store to have a firm understanding of what your tax return will cost, since each situation is unique. The more forms and complexity you add to your return, the more your tax return may cost. One of the H&R Block tax professionals can provide more information.
H&R Block also stands behind their work. For example, you can elect to purchase the Peace of Mind® Extended Service Plan, which provides tax audit protection and representation.
H&R Block Online – For the DIY Taxpayer
There are dozens of companies that offer tax preparation software. However, the same thing applies to software as it does to in-person tax preparation – price does not equal quality. So it pays to shop around to find the best value for your needs.
If you are looking for a good place to start, you can always check out H&R Block Online, which will allow you do do your own tax return.
Keep in mind that many tax software companies offer the best discounts earlier in the tax season. Prices often increase the closer you get to the tax filing deadline.
Here are some of their current offers:
- H&R Block Free Online – If you have a W-2, have kids & education costs
- H&R Block Deluxe Online – For homeowners, donations & HSAs
- H&R Block Premium Online – For freelancers, contractors & investors
- H&R Block Self-Employed Online – For self-employed & small business
H&R Block makes it easy to import your W-2 by snapping a picture with your phone and importing it to your tax return. You will also get real-time tax refund results – as you fill out your return, the H&R Block software will show you the status of your progress as well as an estimated amount of your tax refund.
Finally, H&R Block guarantees your tax return with a 100% accuracy and maximum tax refund guarantee.
A Note About Who is Eligible for Free Tax Preparation
If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible to file your tax return for free.
Some taxpayers may also be eligible to file their tax returns for free if they meet certain income limits and do not have a complicated tax return.
You can view the H&R Block Free Online version to see if you qualify to file your taxes for free.
That said, you will most likely need to purchase specialized software if you exceed certain income limits or you have additional forms such as home interest deductions, donations, Health Savings Account contributions, small business or 1099 income, investment income, or similar complexities.
