H&R Block Premium Tax Software provides a platform for tax filing for individuals, organizations and businesses. You can prepare both your federal and state taxes confidently because the software has audit support and secured data technology. H&R Block Premium enables you to select the correct forms, utilize the correct deductions and calculations, file online, and get a large tax refund.

Employment and income are two factors in tax preparation. Individuals submitting W-2 forms with less than two deductions should use Basic H&R Tax software. The Deluxe version is for persons who own homes, make charitable donations or sell stocks. Premium and the Premium & Business software are for businesses and rental property owners.

The software offers a platform for freelancers, landlords, rental property owners, self-employed and independent contractors. Features include self-income (Schedule C), refund reveal, free import, rental property (Schedule E) and Cost Basis tax calculations.

The benefits include the ability to update the prior year’s return easily, a step-by-step guide, and income verification which reduces the possibility of an audit. Also with H&R Block Premium, tax filers can find more deductions and optimize charitable deductions with the Deduction Pro. The software also makes it easy to file federal and state taxes, and provides guidance on mortgage interests, real estate tax deductions, and rental property expenses and income. The previous year’s W-2 and 1099 are also easily imported.

H&R Block professionals offer free advice to previous and new users, which is accessible after the software is downloaded or via telephone. Audit assistance is also available in the premium and other versions. H&R Block also helps with preparing tax filings, represents the filer if they are audited after using the software and manages any communication.

H&R Tax Premium Discount offers several discounts including free filing for first time users, free advice, free federal e-filing, mobile tax apps, and free gifts and gift cards for signing up.

Most of us don’t enjoy filing our taxes, and like it even less if we have to pay to file them. The good news is that you may be among the 70 percent of US taxpayers eligible to file your taxes for free. Always check the requirements for eligibility and remember that some free filing options are only available through the IRS website.

Get Your Maximum Tax Refund

One of the most popular tax software programs, TurboTax, has several free filing options, and H&R Block also offers free filing to those who satisfy certain criteria. The equally well known tax preparation company of Jackson Hewitt also offers free federal tax return filing, as long as your situation is fairly simple, and some states, including Maryland also offer their residents free help by phone or in person.

There are several reputable websites and reliable tax filing software programs, where you won’t have to pay to file. Some of the most well known software programs include TaxAct, eSmart, FreeTaxUSA, Tax Slayer and 1040.com. Some other recommendations if you want to file your taxes for free are Free1040TaxReturn.com, ezTaxReturn.com, 1040Now.NET and OLT.com. Always check the requirements, which can be based on income, the complexity of your tax situation, the state you live in, and other factors. Keep in mind too that if you don’t want to use software or navigate websites, the good old fashioned IRS paper tax forms won’t cost you anything except the postage.
