Why Did My H&R Block Import Fail?

One of the most convenient reasons for using H&R Block’s Online products to prepare your taxes is importing your tax info. However, sometimes your H&R Block import can fail.

If your import failed, it might be due to technical reasons that have nothing to do with whether your tax or financial info was correct.

Potential Reasons Why Your H&R Block Import Failed

The import feature is used to transmit data — Ex: forms from your employer, your bank, or other organization — to H&R Block. Ex: you could import your Form 1099 info from your bank.

Your H&R Block import might have failed because a slow internet connection caused it to time out. Or, it’s possible your financial institution’s site is slow or down at the moment. To help resolve the issue, you should check your internet connection and try again. If your H&R Block import continues to fail, you should enter your tax info manually.
