Can I Use H&R Block to File Old Taxes?
Every year, tax law changes require that we build new editions of our software programs. If you want to use H&R Block to file old taxes from your 2010-2019 returns, we’ve made it easy to purchase back editions of H&R Block Tax Software. Here’s how to do it:
- Find the software for the tax year you need to prepare.
- Then, choose Windows or Mac.
- Click Download Now to purchase your software.
- That software will be for the tax year you need, so you can be sure your prior-year taxes are accurate.
The IRS only accepts e-files for current year returns. When you file old taxes with H&R Block, you’ll need to print and mail any prior-year returns to the IRS and / or your state’s Department of Revenue. The only exception is for certain New York state returns that H&R Block Tax Software supports for prior-year e-filing.
