Military HR Block discount? As a member of the U.S. military, you have a few options for filing your taxes for free or at a discount.

The leading names in tax software, including HR Block, specialize in accommodating the special needs of military members and veterans, ensuring that you get all the deductions and maximum refund you deserve.

If you are a member of the U.S. military and most comfortable using H&R Block software, we’re here to make sure you get the best price possible. If you decide to use another tax software brand or file free with OneSource, we can help you there, too! Here are the best discounts available now:

  • H&R Block Coupons – Homeowners and those with investments can get a discount any edition of their software (all H&R Block coupons here)
  • H&R Block Free: If you have simple taxes, consider using their free version
  • Military Discount(U.S. Canada) Active-duty military members get a 20% discount on any H R Block software or in-office tax preparation. Use code: MILITARY17TAKE20

*Note that the H&R Block military discount is actually not as good as the one we currently have for the general public, reservists, and veterans. (Not sure why?) To get the best price, use the better discount, as the software is the same! Military members will just be taken on a different path after confirming that they are in the military.

H&R Block specializes in tax prep for military members. While there is no specific, separate edition of HR Block software for military members, their regular software is designed to meet the needs of active-duty military members and Veterans.

In fact, you’ll be asked early on in the process whether you are in the military  so that they can focus on military-related questions about expenses, combat pay, and state residency. HR Block covers military-related details that lesser brands of tax prep software may miss, like the Military Spouse Residency Relief Act. (MSRAA)

Other Military Tax Software?

Did you know that about 25% of military members use H&R Block to file their taxes? That means the only tax prep software that’s more popular is TurboTax, who also has a special edition for military & USAA. We’re happy to recommend that software as well, as they have great resources for active-duty military and Veterans.

If you own a business or drive Uber, also consider their Self-Employed edition., and checkout our coupons for Quickbooks and Vistaprint!

Thank You for Your Service!

You’re out there risking your life for our freedom, and what do we give back? A discount on H&R Block tax software. (Eh hem!?) That doesn’t seem like a fair trade, because it’s not. So, we’ll just end by saying thank you!
