I logged into my H&R Block account and was prompted this.

Let Capital One pick up the tab.

In exchange for free premium tax prep, we'd like to share some of your tax return info between H&R Block and Capital One.

Free is certainly slick. This sounds creepy though!

Also, I didn't get this offer when I logged in. Bummer.

Do you really think your info on the tax return just worth $25? I don't. If I really want to sell it, it should way more than just $25. Just my 2 cents.

I have the same offer. I took part last year as well. As far as the info worth $25, they already have most of it anyway as I have a credit card with them.

I got this exact same screen; I've not signed up yet, though; but I will for sure. I'd done it last year too. Any idea if there's a last date to enroll? Seems like there isn't!

Thx OP! I was really hoping to take advantage of the CapOne offer I got last year and glad that was not one time thing.
I have to file stock returns, charity, mortgage interset + 2 states. This would cost me at least $100 in tax preparation fees.
Cap One you can have my up to date income data (which is probably the only new data they get considering my credit card application from a few years back)
Since I used the offer last year I did notice about 4 Capital One credit card Pre-aproval letters that I received in 2018 and was not geting in previous 2-3 years. I will gladly shred a few letters for a free HR Block tax software.
I would rather share my tax data with CapOne then with Credit karma Wink

I got this offer last year too, but don't see anything this year. Is there a specific screen you see this on, or just when you log in?

Edit - sorry - I didn't read the post. I see it now when I log on to H&R Block!

Thanks!!

This would pretty good last year. I had used TaxAct until they raised their prices and was considering Credit Karma until I saw this.

Nothing for me. Maybe because we already have capital one accounts.

I got it last year, have a cap one cc, and got it this year too. I'm not too worried about them knowing how much I pay in taxes.

Yup... Used it last year and this year too... Premium is $80+ according to their site. I have capital one checking, saving and credit card. So they already have all the info required about me :-)

I got this offer and declined it initially thinking I'd be able to accept it later, but now it is gone. Has anyone figured out a way to find the offer again? THANKS!

Thanks I was surprised because I did not read this post before checking so when I logged in I was confused if this for 2018 or they are asking for 2017. I did this promo on 2017 with them so came here to verify if anyone else got this promo as well... will be doing this promo as capital one already have all my info and did not make any trouble with my last year's data that they may collected.

Anyone see this again for 2019 taxes? I'm hoping for a third year free, but don't see anything when I log in.
