Refund Advance

This is a no-interest loan that is repaid through the approved client's tax refund.+ It is available in three amounts* ($500, $750, $1250) in the first half of the season for a limited time. There are no finance charges and no interest charged for the Refund Advance. H&R Block's banking partners will be providing funding capacity of $1.45 billion in Refund Advances to its clients.

Here's how it works

After the client has their taxes prepared in a participating H&R Block office, they will complete the application.

If approved, the client will receive a text or email with the loan amount, typically within 24 hours.

Then, the funds will be available on the client's H&R Block Emerald Prepaid Mastercard®1

Starting January 3rd
Free Federal 1040EZ

H&R Block will offer Free Federal 1040 EZ to our in-office clients in the first half of the season for a limited time. We expect this product will be appealing to filers with simple tax situations, and to those who normally choose to use a digital product to do their own taxes. We believe this latter group would appreciate having access to the expertise of a tax professional in preparing their return, but may not have been able to afford it, so this offer is a way to appeal to these clients in the early season.
