H&R Block Military Free Tax Filing for 2015 with OneSource (2014 tax year)

hr block military free edition

Updated January 21, 2015 – Unlike TurboTax and TaxACT, which both offer do-it-yourself free tax filing for military personal and families, H&R Block has teamed up with Military OneSource to offer free tax filing. If you’re eligible, you’ll be able to use the H&R Block tool to complete, print and file your 2014 Federal tax return at no cost. And if you need it, you’ll also get up to three free State returns as well. Here as the full offer details with information on how to qualify.

Your Other Options.

Before you go off and start working on your tax return at Military OneSource, we recommend you cheek and see if you qualify for H&R Block’s Federal free edition. Even if you own a home, give to charity, or have an HSA then you may qualify for this version. What we like about this edition is that you’ll also be able to take advantage of the 5% federal extra bonus offer when you can earn an extra 5% on top of your federal refund if you elect to put part or all of it on a gift card (you have over 40 stores to choose from). Plus, free e-file and in-person audit support is included with the free version, and adding a State return is only $9.99 extra. And like all H&R Block at home versions, you’ll be able to automatically import your W-2 data automatically so less time waisted entering data this year.

Supported Tax forms.

The most common IRS forms are included in the H&R Block Free Edition:

  • Form 1040, 1040A, Form 1040EZ for Individual Income Tax Returns.
  • Form 1099-DIV, 1099-G, 1099-MISC, 1099-INT, and 1099-R for dividends, interest income, pensions, annuities, and retirement income.
  • Form 1098, 1098-E and 1098-T for Mortgage and Student Loan Interests.
  • Form 8863 for Education Credits.
  • Form 8917 for Tuition and Fees Deduction.

H&R Block vs. TurboTax

Compare these deals to those now available from TurboTax. We are monitoring the latest offers from Intuit and can help you save up to 35% on your order. Just know that even though the percentage discounts may be larger, their retail prices tend to be much higher so be sure to compare the final costs between the two tax software providers. If you decide to switch from one program to another, both programs let you automatically upload last year’s data so no need to re-input old financial information.

Is there an H&R Block Returning Customer Discount?

When it comes to the tax software from H&R Block, there are no different discounts for existing clients and new clients as everyone can take advantage of the same offers. If you are planning on going to one of your local H&R Block stores to have your taxes done for you this year, we’ve heard that returning clients with the same documents are receiving 'no increase' in prices from last year, although we have yet to confirm this. You can also take to the store associates and see it they are able to provide an extra discount for you at the time of ordering.

Where can I find an H&R Block location near me?

With over 10,000 locations in the United States and Canada, there’s bound to be an office not so far away from where you live.
