A free tax return calculator and estimator can be found on the H&R Block website. Taxpayers need to know their filing status, income, age and number of dependents before using the estimator.
Once on the website, there are places to enter the anticipated filing status, age and number of dependents on the first page. Then, on the second page, there are boxes to enter interest income, self-employment income or regular income. Once that information is entered, the third page asks for child care expenses, state taxes and other expenses. The fourth and final page provides an estimated refund or amount owed. It is important to remember that this is only an estimate and may change on the final tax return.
