If you’re anything like us, you value your time outside of the day-to-day grind and hustle. You relish when you can relax and enjoy time with friends and family. Too often these days, we are continuously trying to chip away at to-do lists and make sure we keep up with all of the busy requirements we put on ourselves just to get through the week!
As much as we all look forward to tax time (okay, as much as some* of us look forward to tax time – those of us who expect returns), it ultimately is just another thing on our major list of things to do that brings on more stress than we need.
Fortunately, we recently discovered H&R Block Tax Pro Go. This is a new program designed for busy people who don’t have the time to complete their own taxes. The best part is that it only requires just a couple of minutes to upload your documents. The rest is taken care of by a tax professional – without leaving the comfort of your own home!
We gave the program an extensive walkthrough and are happy to say that it is a total game changer. You have got to give it a try. Below is some information detailing our experience so far with the program. Furthermore, it’s a great guide on how you can virtually work with a tax professional to get your taxes filed. Please note we have removed all identifying information of our tax professional for privacy purposes.
Tax Pro Matching & Pricing
First, you will be prompted to ask some basic questions about your home, work, and income. After answering those few basic questions, you are matched up with a tax professional. Moreover, you are provided the person’s name, certifications, and the price you will be charged for their services all upfront. H&R Block Tax Pro Go services start at less than $60 for one federal and one state return!
The best part of this initial process is that it leaves no unanswered questions about what you’re in for. There are no hidden fees or surprises: just a quick and easy submission of information. After that, you just leave the rest up to H&R Block Tax Pro Go.
Tax Document Upload
After learning about your tax professional and viewing pricing information, you are brought to the documents upload page. This is where you will upload all W2s, 1099s, 1098s, etc. through a secure server directly to your Tax Professional. If you don’t happen to have all your documents ready at the moment, that’s okay – you can save and come back to where you were later on when you’re ready.
Once you upload your documents, that is literally it! You’ll be brought to a final page letting you know that your documents have been received and your tax professional will begin reviewing the items and begin completing your tax return.
Talking with Your Tax Pro
Within two days of submission of our documents, we received a call directly from our Tax Pro to discuss our documents and confirm the information we had submitted. Our professional was very kind and thorough in her follow up call, and together, we all made sure all necessary documents she needed had been submitted and were ready for use in filing.
In addition to the phone call we received, communicating with our Tax Pro was easy through direct messaging on the secure website. Anytime we had a question, she was responsive to our messages.
Virtual Tax Preparation
For the next several days, we sat back and waited while our Tax Pro worked on our taxes. Again, she was always available to us should we need her, via direct messaging on a secure and private server.
Within five business days of our call with our Tax Pro, our taxes were completed and all of the information was provided to us including an explanation of our credits and deductions. We were able to thoroughly review the information prior to approving and paying for filing.
Pay & File
Once we approved our tax filing information, it was time to pay. Another wonderful part of this program is that if you’re expecting a return, you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket. You can opt to have payment taken directly from your refund. Once you move forward with payment, just sit back and wait while H&R Block Tax Go Pro files your taxes, guaranteeing maximum results.
With H&R Block Tax Pro Go, your taxes are prepared and filed by a certified tax professional who will apply each and every tax deduction and credit to which you are entitled. This guarantees best results and biggest allowable refund and provides minimal effort with maximum results. Visit hrblock.com/taxgopro to start your return today.
