H&R Block Guarantees


We guarantee your maximum refund.
And so much more.

At H&R Block, we stand by our word. That's why we offer so many guarantees. Whether you file online, in an office, or with our tax software, you can rest assured that you’ll have the best experience possible.

File Online Guarantees


Maximum Refund Guarantee

If you find another online tax preparation method that results in a larger refund (or smaller liability) than that calculated by the H&R Block online tax program, we will refund the fees you paid us to use our online tax program to prepare that return and you may use our program to amend your return at no additional charge. To qualify, the larger refund or smaller tax liability must not be due to differences in data supplied by you, your choice not to claim a deduction or credit, or positions taken on your return that are contrary to law.

100% Accuracy Guarantee

If the online tax preparation or tax software makes an arithmetic error that results in your payment of penalties and/or interest to the IRS that you would otherwise not have been required to pay, H&R Block will reimburse you up to a maximum of $10,000. Terms and conditions apply; see Accurate Calculations Guarantee for details.

If you receive an IRS or other tax notice related to the return you filed with H&R Block Online, we'll help you understand and respond to that notice at no additional charge. If you’re not satisfied with our guidance, we'll refund the full purchase prices of your H&R Block Online product.*
