H&R Block Statement on E-filed State Tax Returns
H&R Block is aware of the situation concerning potentially fraudulent state tax returns e-filed through software programs provided by at least one other company. We have no indication this issue exists with H&R Block online state tax returns. H&R Block continues to file state and federal returns as usual.
H&R Block has sophisticated monitoring and quality assurance methods in place. Importantly, our procedures require an accepted e-filed federal return prior to transmitting a state e-filed return. This is one of our many controls to help prevent fraud.
Again, we are open for business and our customers can continue to file both their federal and state tax returns.
