Understanding Your Tax Preparation Charges and Payment Options

When it comes to paying for tax prep, you have a few different payment options. Paying your tax preparation charges with your credit or debit card is a convenient option – just like other purchases you make online.

However, if you’d rather not pay with a credit or debit card, you can pay nothing out of pocket if you choose our Refund Transfer option. This option is available on the same screen where you would choose your credit or debit card to pay your tax preparation charges.

If you choose Refund Transfer, your tax prep and related fees are deducted directly from your tax refund after your return is done.

Seeing Tax Filing Charges on Your Card Twice?

You might see two H&R Block tax preparation charges show up on your credit or debit card account. If that happens, don’t panic. One is the actual payment, and the other is simply a hold for that tax filing charge that will drop off your credit or debit card account – you won’t be charged twice.
