If you're single and have one W2 and no other income, about $60 for the federal return, state is extra. Is it really that basic though? I have had a lot of customers who say they have a really easy return, but then find out they sold some stock, lived in several states, sold a rental home, or own their own business. Those returns cost more. Call one of the H & R Block year round offices and ask them how much, they will tell you.
