What Is Virtual Tax Preparation?

Editor’s Note: Tax Pro Go is currently unavailable, but will return in January. You can still read about the benefits of working with H&R Block to get your taxes won.


Virtual tax preparation options let you file your taxes online from the comfort of your home with help from an online tax expert. At H&R Block, we offer three ways to prepare your taxes virtually. Whether you like to be hands-on or hands-off with your taxes or even if you’re filing from abroad, we’ve got you covered.



If you are a U.S. citizen living or working abroad, H&R Block’s Expat Tax Services can help you confidently file your U.S. return virtually. However, as most Americans file within the United States, we’ll take a closer look at those two options.

What Type of Virtual Tax Preparation Is Right for You?

These days, everyone is finding innovative ways get things done—from how to shop to how to get around town. We believe tax preparation is no different. That’s why we’ve introduced new tax filing options that let you tap into H&R Block tax expertise online from the comfort of your home. While some virtual tax preparation services have a one-size-fits all approach, at H&R Block you can choose the way that best fits your needs.
