H&R Block provides a separate website for filers of Canada tax returns, providing two options for online filing. Even though they are both referred to as Block At Home, one product option is completed entirely online on Block servers. The other option entails downloading the software first. The return is then prepared on a PC or laptop before transmitting the finished return back for checking and filing.
At tax time, H&R Block provides online coupons for their customers. If you are planning on doing your taxes yourself, check their site and take advantage of the savings.
The website image related to the download product appears to be that of a physical box, closely resembling the actual boxes displayed in retailers during tax season. Perhaps the box image is intended to invoke the notion that like a legacy box CD, that initial download is usually for new customers, as most transition to online filing in subsequent years.
Block At Home allows the filer to prepare the return in English or French. It includes free Netfile of the return to the Canada Revenue Agency. Free audit assistance is provided in case of that occurrence. Rather than offering an array of options differing in complexity, H&R Block Canada provides a single comprehensive product covering simple to complex returns.
H&R Block Canada offers a 100% accuracy guarantee, promising to pay interest and penalties if there is an error stemming from the software itself. The download version offers free telephone support in addition to the free email support provided by both versions.
