Celebrating because I FINISHED MY TAXES!!! I used H&R Block’s virtual tax prep service Tax Pro Go, the easy way to file your taxes! It was by far the earliest I’ve ever gotten them finished and also the EASIEST it’s ever been!
Now more than ever, our time is valuable. And since we’re all being told to stay home and practice social distancing, going into a tax office isn’t an ideal choice right now. H&R Block gives you the option to have one of their experts file your taxes for you, and you don’t even have to leave your own home!
You can file 4 different ways: Simple, Student/Retired, Family/Investor, or Business Owner. I filed as a business owner since I’m self-employed. Pricing is clear upfront, allowing for a totally transparent process from start to finish.
It’s done in 3 super easy steps:
- Lock in your price
- Upload your documents
- Review & pay once your tax pro has finished your return (takes approx 5 days)
For the past several years, I’ve done my taxes myself online and would always get so frustrated because I didn’t know what I was doing and didn’t want to mess anything up. Especially in the past few years since I started earning more and more money from blogging and photography, it got harder and harder to do my taxes. If I’m being honest, I’ve never been great with budgeting, setting money aside for taxes, keeping track of expenses, etc. So when tax season rolls around, I had to worry about getting all of that done, and then also inputting all that info online and making sure everything was correct so the IRS didn’t come after me ?
But this year, I got to send over all my documents to an H&R Block tax expert and she did all the work for me! I already had all my income tracked and just had to input my expenses into a spreadsheet, so I just sent her those and whatever forms companies had mailed to me! H&R Block makes it super easy because you can either upload files to the website, or just take a photo on your phone of any physical forms you have to H&R Block’s secure online portal, and they’ll upload to your account! This allowed me to get back to doing things I’d rather be doing instead of crunching numbers or scheduling an appointment at a tax office. Actually, H&R Block has shifted to a primarily drop-off system at their tax offices now to provide expert help in a safe and secure manner. But I preferred taking the virtual approach, so I didn’t have to leave my house.
You also have the option to chat with your tax expert either online or on the phone if you have any questions or concerns.
H&R Block was kind enough to give me a code to share with all of you! Use code 76303 to get $20 off getting your taxes done, regardless of complexity!
Thanks for reading & happy filing!
