Tax return e-filing is now open (as of today)!
If you haven’t already purchased your tax prep software this year – hold off for a few more days – because I am giving you an opportunity to score free tax prep!
I am giving away five $95 key codes for H&R Block online tax prep programs, courtesy of the kind folks at H&R Block.
If you end up with one, you can choose the H&R Block version you’d like and apply the code towards the program online. Why $95? It’s enough to cover the top-level “Premium” online version ($54.99), including the full cost of 1 federal and 1 state e-file (normally, an additional $36.99).
H&R Block Premium online covers all of the basics, plus an optional additional focus on self-employment income, business deductions, investments/dividends, valuation on charitable contributions, and guidance on rental property income.
I reached out to H&R Block for this promotion, as I have in the past, because their product and support is excellent. They offer access to free, unlimited tax advice from H&R Block tax professionals via real-time chat (24 hours a day/7 days a week until April 21st) and extensive phone support as well (7am – midnight, M-F, and 7am – 8pm, Sa/Su).
I have used H&R Block’s online products the past couple of years and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I particularly like their Refund Reveal tool, which explains the changes in your refund amount when you make changes while prepping your return. Education is an important component to filing your taxes DIY.
So… how do you win a key code?
How to Win the H&R Block Giveaway
Simple stuff, but make sure both steps are completed (it should take you 2 minutes tops!):
1. ‘Like’ the embedded Facebook post below and the 20somethingfinance page on Facebook (if you have not already).
2. Add a comment to this post with a clever/favorite tax tip or interesting tax story. Include your Facebook name as your commenter name and your real email in the email form when you comment (emails are kept private so others cannot see, I just need to be able to contact you if you win).
I’ll cross-reference comments with Facebook and randomly select 5 winners from those who have completed each step.
Deadline to Enter: 12 PM EST this Sunday, Jan. 29 (at which point no further entries will be eligible). I’ll reach out to the winners that day and email the confirmation codes so that you can get started on your taxes online and I will update the post with a comment once I have done so (so you’ll know if you didn’t win as well). And whether you win or not, take a look at H&R Block for your tax prep this year!
