H&R Block Responds to Delay
While H&R Block is well prepared to adjust to the IRS announcement of a delay in the opening of the 2014 tax season, we are frustrated for our clients who are among the estimated 18 million taxpayers who typically file a return in January. With a possible two-week delay beyond the original kick off date of Jan. 21, these taxpayers will be waiting even longer for their refunds.
We appreciate the IRS informing taxpayers of this move now, as it allows us immediately to begin assessing all the impacts to taxpayers and the industry. H&R Block remains flexible in our service to our clients while our tax pros are poised to assist regardless of the delay.
Millions of taxpayers are continuing to procrastinate on doing taxes and filing a late tax return.
Keep in mind that an extension to file is not an extension to pay. Don't forget to pay your tax bills before the deadline to avoid delayed tax return penalties.
H&R Block will be open on Easter to give taxpayers one more weekend to get their taxes won.
