H&R Block also partners with the IRS Free File Alliance. The Free File Alliance provides free online tax prep for e-filing taxpayers through H&R Block. However, you must meet certain age and income criteria to qualify for this free tax program.

To create an account with IRS Free File Alliance, visit the IRS online (www.irs.gov) and create an account. You’ll need to complete your taxes with the H&R Block program through a unique IRS Free File Alliance link. The available forms will depend on whether or not you meet the qualifications set by the IRS.
