Tax season is upon us. With all the craziness of everything, it is very easy to keep putting off the inevitable…TAXES. Even though the deadline to file has been moved to July 15th, don’t wait until the last minute and don’t worry, H&R Block is here to help make filing your taxes as easy as possible. No matter what your occupation is, no matter your age, H&R Block has the tax filing solution for you.
Being a small business , we have had to file our taxes a little differently than most people. I can tell you in the past, filing our taxes was a very stressful situation for us. Trying to figure out everything we could deduct and making sure we do everything correctly was very important to us. This year we have partnered with H&R block to do our small business tax filing with no stress and no fuss.
Today we are here to walk through the process of figuring out what H&R product is right for you.
Picking the right product
H&R Block has several different packages to help you file your taxes no matter what your situation is.
- Free online filing: If you have a W-2, have kids & education costs…
- Deluxe online: For maximizing credits & deductions, plus HSA contributions… $49.99 + $44.99 for state filing
- Premium online: For freelancers, contractors & investors… $69.99 + $44.99 for state filing
- Self-Employed online: For self-employed & small business
You can also get Online Assist with any one of these tax solution products. With Online Assist you can get on-demand help from a tax expert, enrolled agent, or CPA. They will help you with any questions you may have. I know this reduced the stress level for me. Sometimes when you’re gathering all your tax documents it can seem a little overwhelming. Just knowing that that resource is there is extremely comforting! So I was definitely going to select the tax solution package that included Online Assist.
Preparing to file
I know that getting all your tax documents together can be a big task. And if you are not careful it’s easy to forget some things. Don’t worry H&R Block has you covered. They have a printable checklist that you can print off and use. Then all you have to do is go down the list and gather up your documents! This is a great feature that I love
Since we are self-employed, we save all kinds of receipts and other documents that we need to do our taxes. I always feel like I’m forgetting something. It’s nice to have a list that I print out and we can look over. We can then gather everything up and just check it off the list!
Now that we have everything on our list checked off and gathered up, it’s time to start. H&R Block is extremely user friendly. You literally just answer questions. H&R Block will walk you through everything you need to do. It’s really that easy. Plus, if you get Online Assist you can ask a professional any questions you might have! I always seem to have questions because I’m not sure what deductions I can take. That’s why I love H&R Block. They give me peace of mind that I’m doing my taxes correct and getting the biggest refund that I am legally allowed.
H&R Block will even transfer your info from last year to speed up the process. Even if you didn’t use H&R Block to file your taxes last year, you can still import your info from last year from other tax services. You will just need to download your return to your computer. H&R Block will walk you through transferring your info.
Now the waiting…
Now that the easy part is over, the hard part starts… THE WAITING. But again H&R Block has you covered. You can easily check the status of your return. This will give you the assurance that your return was accepted and will even let you know when you should expect your refund (if you got one).
The time is NOW!!!
No more waiting for the right time to do your taxes. With H&R Block the time is always right. So hop on over to HRBlock.com and get started!
Remember the deadline to file has been moved to July 15th, 2020.
