You have less than a week until Tax Day, and if you still haven’t filed your taxes yet, it’s time to get a move on. If you’re unsure of where to start, or having trouble booking an appointment, make it easy on yourself this year and file online with H&R Block.

Founded by two brothers in 1955, the company has employed the most-trusted tax professionals in North America for more than six decades, and it’s now making the process even more convenient by offering e-filing. For a limited time, the link below will give you 35% off the e-file package you select, whether you’re filing for yourself, your family or your business. Packages start at just $35 (regular price $54.99).

The fuss-free process is simple: Head to HRBlock.com and upload a photo of your W-2 form to get started. You’ll be asked to answer a few simple questions, go through a couple verification checkpoints (H&R Block takes financial information and identity theft seriously) and the software will then show you what your estimated refund is and why/how it could change (if applicable).

Online tax filing with H&R Block lets you file taxes from any device, and gives you the option of having your return checked by a Tax Pro before filing. It also means you’re getting your absolute maximum refund guaranteed.

H&R Block also has easy-to-understand options for people filing for the first time, or people who need help completing late returns.

Keep in mind: the late filing penalty is 5% of the taxes owed amount for every month your return is late, up to a maximum of 25%. If you file more than 60 days after the due date, the minimum penalty is $135 or 100% of your unpaid tax. The lesson here: it’ll cost you if you don’t file on-time.
