Last Weekend to Get Taxes Won

April 13, 2017

Taxpayers have just one weekend left to get their taxes won before the April 18 tax filing deadline and it’s a holiday weekend. H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) tax offices across the nation will be open on Easter, giving taxpayers who haven’t filed their returns an “extra” day of assistance.

“Even with a few extra days, more procrastinators and other late filers this year are rushing to get their taxes done. But it’s not too late to get their taxes won. First, procrastinators should make sure they don’t overlook any tax benefits or make mistakes that leave money on the table. And if they don’t have time to do this by April 18, they need to file an extension to avoid adding extra penalties and interest to their bill,” said Kathy Pickering, executive director of The Tax Institute at H&R Block.

H&R Block’s tax professionals will help clients claim all the tax breaks they are entitled to and file their returns or extensions so they can avoid failure-to-file penalties that could quickly add up to 25 percent on top of their tax liability.

For additional help estimating their tax liability, filing an extension or understanding their payment options, taxpayers may contact a local H&R Block tax professional. To find the nearest H&R Block office, visit www.hrblock.com or call 800-HRBLOCK.
