Less taxing

New benefit offered for online filers

A new tool allows USPS employees to automatically upload their tax information to H&R Block.

The Postal Service now offers a free benefit that makes it easier for employees who use H&R Block to file their taxes.

Employees can now automatically upload information from their W-2 and 1095-C forms to the H&R Block tax preparation company.

The tax information — secured with USPS information systems — is uploaded to H&R Block only if the employee voluntarily opts to do so.

USPS also works with Intuit, the company that operates TurboTax, to offer a similar tax preparation benefit.

The IRS recommends individuals automatically upload information from their employers when possible if they use tax preparation service providers or tax preparation software. This saves employees from having to enter the information manually, which reduces the risk of potential errors.
