Things Latina Moms Say About Taxes

Latina moms have to be the biggest stress balls on the planet. Every time there’s an upcoming event or holiday, Latina moms go nuts trying to prepare. They stress about cooking enough food to feed the entire neighborhood, they drive themselves crazy making sure the house is clean, basically there’s no end to the chaos. 

The same chaos follows Latina moms when it comes time to do their taxes. They scramble to gather their receipts and income documents and stress about making their tax appointment. To be honest, Latina moms really overreact for no reason because there are plenty of H&R Block pros available to help them file their tax return without added stress. Here are all the ways Latina moms stress over taxes and how their friends at H&R Block can help calm their nerves.

Our moms sometimes get stuck in the past and they probably think that filing your taxes in 2020 is just how it used to be in 1993 when they had to stand in a long line outside of an accountant’s office carrying a heavy folder and spending nearly eight hours to get their taxes done. Well guess what, mama? It’s 2020 and you can make an appointment that fits your schedule. They’re open when you need them – early, late, even on weekends. Just go online to make an appointment. 

Technology is too complicated.

Mom might be a Facebook expert but when it comes to doing anything else online, she suddenly doesn’t know how to work the computer. If mom refuses to file her taxes online because it seems complicated, she can make an appointment to have an H&R Block tax pro do her taxes for her whenever it’s convenient for her. Or, she can drop off her documents and finish her mandados while a tax pro does the rest.

Sometimes our parents feel more comfortable speaking with experts en español and that’s totally okay. H&R Block makes it super easy to find tax experts that are bilingual and happy to help prepare their taxes en español, making them feel more confident about asking questions and filing their tax return.
