H&R Block FAQ

If I'm Filing Two State Returns, Which Should I Complete First?

H&R Block recommends you complete your part-year resident or nonresident return before you begin your resident return.

Your completed part-year resident or nonresident return might come in handy when you're completing your resident return.

Can I Pay My Tax Balance Due With a Credit Card?

Yes. You can use these credit cards to pay your tax bill:

  • Mastercard
  • Discover
  • Visa
  • American Express

After you complete your return and know how much you owe, the product will direct you to PayUSATax, an external website where you can make a payment to the IRS using a credit card.

How Do I Purchase a Prior Year Version Of the Software?

Each year there are tax changes that require new software. If you need to prepare a return for a year before 2016, you can buy prior year H&R Block Tax Software programs from the H&R Block web site store.
Just choose the tax year you need to prepare, choose Windows or Mac, and then click Download Now to buy the software.

The IRS only accepts e-files for current year returns. Any prior year returns need to be printed and mailed to the IRS and/ or Department of Revenue.

Why is It Asking Me to Pay to E-file My Return?

H&R Block Tax Software includes 5 free federal e-files. To take advantage of your free federal e-files, you need to activate and register your copy of our software program using the Activation Code you got when you purchased your program.

State e-file fees are a separate charge. They aren't included in the cost of your federal or state programs and don't count as one of your five free federal e-files.

Sometimes H&R Block will ask you to enter your payment information again if you're refiling a rejected return. H&R Block won't process your e-file fee until the IRS or state accepts your return.

What are My Options for Receiving My Tax Refund?

Getting a tax refund is exciting! When you file with H&R Block, we offer several different ways you can receive your refund:

Direct deposit — The IRS will send your refund to your bank account within 21 days. However, more than nine out of 10 refunds are issued in less than 21 days from the day they're accepted. No one can get you your money faster than H&R Block!

Check — You'll receive a check sent to the address on your return within 5-7 weeks.

Keep in mind that all of these time estimates assume the IRS accepts your e-filed return.
