There are 3 methods to pay for e-filing.
- Key Code: The product comes with a Key Code that you'll enter into HR Block to enable your free e-filings.
- Simple Pay: If you have a federal tax refund, you can choose to pay for e-filing by deducting the e-file fee(s) from your federal refund amount using Simple Pay.
- Credit Card: HR Block accepts most debit, check cards that are associated with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express, as long as it's eligible for Internet commerce transactions.

If you need to resubmit a rejected return, you'll need to provide your credit card information again, but will not be charged a second time.
