Should I Use TurboTax** or H&R Block?

Editor’s Note: While our More Zero offer has ended, you can still get free online tax filing for your federal 1040A or 1040 EZ and read about the benefits of working with H&R Block to get your taxes won.

 

More people are using DIY tax filing options than ever before. Both H&R Block and TurboTax** offer online filing during tax season, but which option is right for you? The answer may depend on your filing situation, your career, or even where you live.

TurboTax** vs H&R Block – COST

How much will it cost you to file taxes at home? That all depends on what you need. Self-employed filers will need to pay $119.99 for TurboTax’s** Self-Employed filing option, while H&R Block users can enjoy a comparable service for less. Our Self-Employed DIY option lets self-employed individuals file their taxes for only $94.99. In addition, H&R Block’s Deluxe and Premium users can access free online assistance from a tax professional.

TurboTax** vs H&R Block – CONVENIENCE

Filing taxes at home lets you finish your return on your own schedule. However, some extra perks can make it faster and easier to complete your taxes. H&R Block’s mobile option lets you file your taxes via your smartphone and even lets you upload your W-2 with a photo. It’s another way that we do our best to make tax filing as quick, simple and hassle-free as possible.

TurboTax** vs H&R Block – SUPPORT SERVICES

Sometimes it pays to have extra help. While both TurboTax** and H&R Block offer online and phone support to tax filers, H&R Block offers Tax Pro ReviewSM so you can have your entire tax return reviewed and signed by one of our experienced professionals. It’s a great way to make sure that you’ve completed things properly – and can expect your maximum refund.
