How to Keep the Cost of Filing Taxes Low

From ages 18-22, I was so worried about the cost of filing taxes that I tediously did them by hand and mailed them in. I worked through school and had loans to pay off afterwards, so I didn’t want to pay an extra penny doing taxes.

I was so excited about getting my first corporate job because it meant that I could afford a tax program to file my taxes. In addition to being able to afford a super helpful tax filing program, my first job would allow me to get health insurance and stock my refrigerator with healthy fruits and vegetables. It was a dream come true to not have to worry about my basic needs.

Nonetheless, keeping the cost of filing taxes at the ultimate low was still a priority for me. After all, what they say is true – old habits die hard.

Long gone are the poor student and comfortable corporate days, because my budgeting mindset is still strong as ever. That’s why I partnered with H&R Block to share how they can keep your cost of filing taxes low without compromising ease and expertise.

This post is written in collaboration with H&R Block. Insight and opinions are my own.

The best part about using H&R Block Online is that you are guaranteed to get the maximum refund you’re entitled to without having to struggle with your taxes. They find money that others miss.

Cost Difference H&R Block Online vs. TurboTax 

You might have heard of TurboTax and might be wondering what the cost difference is between these two programs. With H&R Block Online, you could save $10 or more than TurboTax. 

Even more important though, H&R Block finds money that other companies tend to miss, so not only will you save money doing your taxes, you may also get more money back.
