Can I File Back Taxes Online?

No — unfortunately, the H&R Block Online program is only designed to be used for the current year’s returns. To file back taxes, you’ll need to purchase the edition of H&R Block’s software for the year or years that you need to file.

To e-file back taxes with H&R Block, you can purchase H&R Block software through www.hrblock.com or by visiting a local retail software store. Our software is easy to use and will guarantee you receive your maximum refund amount.
