The H&R Block online tax calculator has been a popular way to estimate tax refunds for years, and can really help with financial planning. However, the calculator didn’t have the best user experience. So, H&R Block hired a prestigious tech-focused creative agency called, Code & Theory, to help them improve the tool.
The result was faster load times, a better interface, and more accurate refund estimates that rival the TurboTax calculator. You can check out the new calculator here at hrblock.com. If you are filing with H&R Block we have some sweet coupons here. Read on to learn how the new tax calculator works:

H&R Block + New Calculator = More Accurate Estimate!
Sorry, I had to do a little math joke there. Oh, and I wish that was my federal tax refund!
Anyway, by using the H and R Block calculator, I was able to get a very accurate estimate of tax refund in just a few minutes. I invested a little more time for a more accurate calculation and dug out some info including capital gains on my investments and freelance income.
I hope the H&R Block calculator helps you get a better idea of your refund or what you owe the IRS so you aren’t surprised when you file.
