What is virtual tax preparation?


Virtual tax preparation options let you file your taxes with a remote tax professional all from the comfort of your home. At H&R Block, we have two ways you can prepare your taxes virtually letting you leave your entire tax prep to the experts – H&R Block Virtual and H&R Block Expat Tax Services.

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 our H&R Block Virtual option.

Virtual tax preparation services offer more ways to do your taxes

These days, everyone is finding innovative ways get things done—from how to shop to how to connect with others. We believe tax preparation is no different. That’s why we created a virtual tax preparation service that lets you tap into H&R Block tax expertise from the comfort of your home.

You can tap into full-service tax prep with our tax experts online

H&R Block Virtual is different than filing with our do-it-yourself options. Instead of preparing your taxes with an online program, you connect to a tax pro who will prepare and file your return for you.

Here’s how H&R Block Virtual works

  • Get matched with a local tax pro who can help you with your unique situation.
  • Take a pic to send them your tax documents.
  • Sit back and relax while they get to work and prepare your return. Then, you can review and approve your taxes, pay; then you’re done!

Have questions along the way? You can connect with your tax pro over video, chat or phone. If you want to stop by the office that works too.
