Free Tax Preparation Services Including H&R Block

alt text

(Best Syndication News) The H&R Block (HRB) company is offering free tax filing for customers who need to use the 1040EZ form. The IRS estimates that 16 percent of Americans can use this simple fling form.

Their special promotion ends February 15th. The company, which is ranked 1461 in the Forbes Global 2000 list, hopes to develop new customers by providing this free service. Customers may wander into the office seeking an EZ filing but find out they need a more complex form.

H&R Block discontinued their refund anticipation loans (“RALs”) after running into problems with former California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. These high-interest short-term loans were very profitable for the company and provided customers with an instant cash refund.

The company website also offers free online tax preparation. Customers can use their service to e-file and print their forms. The free online service provides audit support and representation from an enrolled agent. They even guarantee a “maximum refund.”

Not all tax preparation is that easy. The self employed pay the highest cost, but the H&R Block online services are very competitive.

Customers that can’t qualify for the EZ form can file online for $19.95. Tax preparation for investors and homeowners can be a little more complex. Online filing of a 1099 with non-standard deductions will run $29.95.

Finally, if you are self employed, the cost is $49.95. That includes free live tax “advice” and schedule C “guidance”. If the filer needs rental income assistance, that is available under this premium service.

The IRS also provides free tax preparation for low income Americans.
