H&R Block will be the new, exclusive DIY desktop tax software provider available at Walmart stores nationwide, and sold directly by Walmart on walmart.com.
“At H&R Block, we give our clients the flexibility to prepare their taxes however they want, which includes offering them the products they want where they shop,” says Heather Watts, senior vice president and general manager of digital at H&R Block. “Walmart shoppers expect to get the best value possible, and in this partnership with Walmart, H&R Block desktop software is committed to meeting customers’ tax prep needs.”
Among the key product enhancements for this year’s desktop software products is the addition of “drag and drop,” which imports tax information from any source, including last year’s tax return from other tax prep services.
In addition to the maximum refund, 100% accuracy and 100% satisfaction guarantees that come standard for all H&R Block DIY tax software clients, these are among the other benefits that make H&R Block products the best value in desktop tax software:
- Free in-person audit representation from an H&R Block tax professional
- Unlimited free tax advice via live chat
- Up to five federal returns can be filed for free
“In addition to better prices, the value H&R Block can offer Walmart shoppers with our support features, such as free in-person audit representation and unlimited free tax advice, is among the many reasons we are so pleased to expand our partnership with Walmart this year,” Watts says.
