I have e-filed our taxes using H&R Block for about 6 years now. (Long before agreeing to write this post on behalf of H&R Block as a member of the Shopathome.com Blogger Team.) I have been working through each tax season using their online services. Being a full-time mom means caring for the house, the kids, and often puts moms in the prime position to keep watch over the family budget. Every household is different, but in my house, I am the bill payer, budget balancer and tax preparer.
I do not have a degree or credentials in finance. My dad taught me a lot about money management, but when it comes to filing our household taxes, I need help. H&R Block Tax Preparation Services online has been really helpful for me.
As a stay-at-home-mom, participating in managing the family finances is important. My husband earns a paycheck, but by managing it I make sure that it is viewed as our money.
Taxes do not have to be intimidating. The online filing services provided by H&R Block are simple to follow-the program walks you through a series of simple questions that you answer. It is very easy. Plus, if you get stuck (which I did when my husband was deployed), you have access to real-time help directly from H&R Block (in store or online).They are offering some discounts and cash back deals as you prep for this year’s tax season.
I will be filing our household taxes through H&R Block this year and I encourage you to check it out. You can always start the process to see how you like it first. No payment needs to be submitted until you are ready to file.H&R Block started as a family-run business started by two brothers. Think of your family as a small business-you have a budget, an income, and you need to manage it to benefit all members.
Enjoy your time at home!
