Unfortunately, H&R Block’s 2016 tax software can only be used to complete your 2016 tax return. The reason being is that there are many tax-related changes that occur from one year to the next; things like changes to tax brackets, threshold levels, as well as refundable and non-refundable amounts. This means that if you were to use tax software that was developed for a previous tax year, your return would be inaccurate and you might not get everything you’re entitled to.
If you need to file a return for the 2015 (or earlier) tax year, we recommend that you visit one of our 1,200 locations across the country. One of our tax experts will be happy to help!
