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.
