HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Sears announced that it has partnered with H&R Block to launch a new website dedicated to helping consumers prepare for tax season.
Consumers can visit Sears.com/hrblock to purchase online tax preparation software from H&R Block at 15% off. Customers filing online can also import last year's tax data from TurboTax and TaxAct Online. In addition, H&R Block at Sears also offers free federal 1040EZ tax filing online and in stores, through Feb. 29, for customers who qualify for the simple form.
"H&R Block and Sears are continuing to create new initiatives to help customers file their returns with absolute assurance and in a timely manner," said David Schuvie, VP licensed business for Sears Holdings. "Having the ability to provide our customers with the option to prepare and file their taxes online, or to visit an H&R Block office in our Sears stores validates our commitment of being a fully-integrated retailer."
