This year, you have two extra days to prepare and file your tax return–the federal tax filing deadline is April 17, 2012. Get started on yours with a FREE 1040-EZ Prep at H&R Block. Through February 29, 2012, you can file your federal 1040-EZ free at participating H&R Block locations. The state tax return isn’t free–it’s $39 per state return with a Federal 1040-EZ.
Generally, a 1040-EZ filer is a single or married filing jointly taxpayer who does not pay mortgage interest, has no dependents and earned less than $100,000 last year.
For the first time ever, taxpayers can complete and file a federal 1040-EZ and state return free completely from their mobile device. The H&R Block 1040-EZ app can be downloaded free for iPhone, Android and the iPad tablet. In addition, taxpayers can file a free 1040-EZ federal tax return at participating retail tax offices or online with H&R Block At Home.
