Millions can file for free at H&R Block offices
No other major assisted tax preparer matches H&R Block’s free federal 1040EZ offer
The unmatched free federal 1040EZ from H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) will allow as many as 23 million taxpayers to file a federal 1040EZ for free through Feb. 28 at participating offices. This gives those taxpayers access to expert assistance in completing their returns and guarantees they get their maximum refund.
“Just because EZ is in the name of the form doesn’t mean preparing and filing the tax return will be simple, especially for anyone who is filing for the first time, experienced a life change in 2017, faces IRS refund delays or is concerned about how tax reform legislation will affect them in 2018, including the impact to their paychecks starting as early as February,” said Karen Orosco, senior vice president of U.S. retail for H&R Block. “Having assistance from a qualified tax professional provides taxpayers confidence that they aren’t leaving any money on the table and that they are prepared for the future.”
Generally, a 1040EZ filer is a taxpayer who files single or married filing jointly who does not pay mortgage interest, has no dependents and earned less than $100,000 last year.
