Ready to File Tax Returns? H&R Block Blends DIY, Tax Pro Expertise

With H&R Block Best of Both get the convenience of DIY filing with tax pro review for maximum refund - guaranteed

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - March 28, 2017 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - H&R Block (NYSE:HRB) is the only tax prep company giving do-it-yourself clients the opportunity to have their tax return reviewed remotely by a tax pro before submitting it to the IRS - with no office visit required.

“With this year’s April 18 tax deadline around the corner, taxpayers might feel like they are running out of options, but that’s not the case for H&R Block clients,” said Heather Watts, H&R Block vice president and general manager of digital products. “H&R Block Best of Both provides an opportunity for taxpayers who are unsure about their tax situation this year to have a convenient DIY option that includes review by a tax pro.”

H&R Block Best of Both takes worry out of the equation

With H&R Block Best of Both, DIY taxpayers who want the convenience of working on their tax return when they have time, don’t have to miss out on having a tax professional review their return. Even longtime DIYers may experience changes in their personal lives that they might not realize could impact their tax situation.

Life changes - like sending a child to college, selling a home, starting a business and taking care of elderly parents - can change a tax situation. When DIY taxpayers have life changes they could miss tax breaks, which could prevent them from getting the maximum refund they are due. If taxpayers who usually do their own taxes have doubts due to life changes this year, Best of Both can be a good way to make sure they aren’t leaving money on the table.

Best of Both process is simple, convenient and comes with H&R Block’s guarantees

All H&R Block Online Product DIYers can add-on Best of Both when working in any online product, including the Free edition. The cost of adding Best of Both is based on the complexity of the individual tax return and ranges from $39.99 to $89.99.

After “completing” their return, Best of Both clients receive a message letting them know their tax return was received and to whom it was assigned. Clients and tax professionals communicate via a secured email system and they also can talk on the phone if they choose. Like with all other H&R Block tax preparation products, clients receive the brand’s guarantees of maximum refund, 100-percent accuracy and 100-percent satisfaction.

“H&R Block Best of Both is not only simple and convenient, but with it clients also get the same satisfaction and accuracy guarantees all H&R Block clients get, while benefitting from the company’s security features,” Watts said.

H&R Block is trusted with some of the most important financial information its clients have. The company is dedicated to protecting that information at every step in the process and it takes many precautions to prevent unauthorized access.

Taxpayers have multiple ways online to access H&R Block, including the H&R Block apps, H&R Block DIY Online products, H&R Block DIY software, an appointment at a retail tax office, and reading what clients say and learning about product details in the H&R Block Newsroom.
