H&R Block exclusive tax software only available at Walmart, includes free extended download

H&R Block has its clients’ backs with value, help and guarantees

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- H&R Block (HRB) announced today it remains the exclusive Walmart tax software provider. In addition to conveniently purchasing their tax software at more than 4,300 Walmart stores nationwide and Walmart.com, consumers buying the Deluxe/Deluxe + State products will receive the Extended Download Service at no additional cost (a $5.99 value). This service allows clients to reinstall their software for up to two years from the date of purchase and is a free bonus exclusively for Walmart shoppers.

“H&R Block’s exclusive arrangement with Walmart gives consumers access to the best value in tax software,” said Heather Watts, senior vice president and general manager of digital at H&R Block. “If Walmart shoppers haven’t taken advantage of the innovation and value of H&R Block’s desktop software products before, switching from TurboTax or another tax prep option is easier than ever with ‘drag and drop,’ which easily imports tax information from any source and decreases much of the required data entry.”

H&R Block and Walmart are entering the second year of this exclusive offer, making H&R Block desktop software products the only tax prep products sold by the world’s largest retailer in its stores or online.

In addition to the maximum refund, 100-percent accuracy and 100-percent satisfaction guarantees, these are among the features H&R Block desktop software products include, making them the best value:

  • Free In-Person Audit Representation from an H&R Block tax pro (some competitors charge $49.99).
  • Unlimited free tax advice via live chat (some competitors charge $19.99).
  • Up to five federal returns can be filed for free.

H&R Block DIY desktop software can be purchased in Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com. Regardless of where they purchase, customers can conveniently choose to install with a CD or download directly to their PC or Mac.
