Update: deadline to enter is this Sunday at noon!
Tax return e-filing is now open!
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! The H&R Block giveaway is back – but this year, the game has been upped.
I am giving away five $200 key codes for H&R Block online tax prep programs, courtesy of the kind folks at H&R Block!
If you win a code, you can choose the H&R Block version you’d like and apply the code towards the online program. This code would be enough to cover the cost of the “Premium” online version ($74.99) or highest-level “Self-Employed” ($94.99), including the full cost of 1 federal and 1 state e-file (normally, an additional $36.99).
H&R Block Self-Employed online covers all of the “Deluxe” and “Premium” features (basics, HSA’s, deductions, investments/dividends, charitable deductions, rental property), plus an additional focus on self-employment income, small business income, business deductions, and more. Everything you could want.
It would also cover the cost of adding on H&R Block “Tax Pro Review” (normally $59.99 – $89.99), a feature this year that allows filers to have their return reviewed by an H&R Block tax professional, without need to step foot in an office, in as little as 3 days for accuracy and to make sure you have an optimal return. A similar offering in the past was referred to as “Best of Both”. I used Best of Both for a number of years – and have always found the interactions with the tax professionals to be EXTREMELY helpful.
I reached out to H&R Block for this giveaway, as I have in the past, because their product and support is excellent. They offer access to free, unlimited “Ask a Tax Advisor” support weekdays from 10 a.m. to 10 pm CT and on weekends from 9 am to 5 pm CT, and 24/7 technical chat support.
In using H&R Block’s online products the past couple of years, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
So… how do you win a key code?
How to Win the H&R Block Giveaway
2 steps. Simple stuff, but make sure both steps are completed (it should take you 2 minutes tops!):
1. ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ the embedded Facebook post below and ‘Like’ 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 field 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 both steps.
Deadline to Enter: 12 PM EST this Sunday, Feb. 4 (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).
Whether you win or not, take a look at H&R Block for your tax prep this year! They have a 100% money back guarantee, if you are unsatisfied for any reason.
