How Do I Print My Taxes Without a Watermark?

We watermark your return for a reason — to prevent you from mailing in a form that hasn’t been approved by the IRS or your state’s Department of Revenue. If you don’t have the final forms, you can’t print your return without the watermark.

To print your taxes without the watermark, you’ll need to update your H&R Block Software to get the final version of the forms.

Finding a Finalized Form to Print Taxes Without a Watermark on H&R Block

To determine if a particular form is final, visit the H&R Block Tax Software Update Center and click on the Forms Available link, found under:

  • Federal Tax Software Updates – for federal form information
  • State Tax Software Updates – for state form information

A finalized form will have a green checkmark next to it.
