How Do I Format the Date in the H&R Block Online Program?

As you enter your info into the H&R Block Online program, you’ll be asked to provide dates in various locations. To ensure the dates are read correctly, you’ll need to format the date using a two-digit month, two-digit day, and four-digit year (MM/DD/YYYY) pattern. Ex: For February 15, 1980, enter 02/15/1980.

What to Keep in Mind When You Enter Dates

The program will auto-format the date in many places based on what you initially enter. Even so, you should verify the date format each time. By checking your entry, you can save yourself from submitting a form with a typo that could later cause an error or delay.
