Scrambling With Taxes? It’s Handled.

This post is sponsored by H&R Block but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Tax season is here and time’s a ticking! Whether you hate it or love it, those taxes absolutely have got to get done! Many of us put taxes off for several reasons: business, missing documents, feeling overwhelmed. I can attest feeling all three during the last leg of tax season. Last year was rough for my family and we’ve been spending the first three months of the new year getting our life back. We moved back into our own place last month. Getting settled, unpacking, and organizing have been constant. That, paired with everyday stress has been a recipe for putting our taxes on the backburner. Not to mention that being a self-employed blogger adds a layer of complexity to things. There’s going over earnings, expense reports, and sometimes waiting on that one brand to mail you your 1099. Whatever your reason may be for not filing yet, H&R Block has your back.

I decided to file online this year because it seemed easier than going into an office. With four different online products, H&R Block understands that one size DOES NOT fit all. On their website, you can choose the online filing product that best fits your tax situation, upload your docs, and follow along with the guided step-by-step process.  With blogging income, I went ahead and chose the Self-employed option. If you have questions while completing your taxes online, you can instantly connect with a tax expert who will screen share and give you a hand. This service is an additional fee which is presented upfront before you try it. There are no hidden fees or surprises with H&R Block. You’ll always know your price upfront and if the price changes for any reason, they’ll explain why.

What Do I Need to File My Taxes?

Getting starting with H&R Block online is as easy as a quick drag and drop of last year’s tax return. It doesn’t matter the service or method that you used in the previous year, the information is compatible with H&R Block. If you need a refresher on everything that you’ll need to file your taxes with H&R Block, check out their comprehensive tax checklist – that was so helpful to organize before I started!

April 15th is the deadline to file your taxes. The hubs and I dedicated the weekend to getting it done. We got a sitter for the kids and spent some time together working through the process. Having each other as support, made the process so much easier. Teamwork makes the dream work. The guided process with H&R Block was so simple, we finished in just a few hours, giving us time to get in some much-needed Saturday self-care.  

If you’re still stalling on completing your taxes, consider H&R Block online. It’s easy to use, plus you have additional assistance from the experts at your fingertips if you need it. Introverts, rejoice – being in the comfort of your own home beats sitting in the tax office. And, when you file from home, you can even listen to some music, or pull out the foot bath to soak your feet while you work.
