Second Look®
Tax Review

They say double-checking is never a bad idea, and that especially goes for reviewing an old tax return. In fact, you could be entitled to a bigger refund than you actually received last year - and even up to two years before that. Second Look® is free. Take our quick assessment and find out if a second look is right for you.

Start Assessment


You want your maximum refund - every year.

Are you sure you got your maximum refund last year? What about the last three years? For one reason or another, you might not have claimed all the credits or deductions you deserve on a past-year tax return - and that can mean missing out on money you could put toward bills, building savings, or buying something nice.

And it’s our job to make sure you got it.

The good news is that it’s not too late to check those old returns again. With the Second Look® tax review, our trained professionals will review old tax returns that you or others prepared. The goal? To get you the refund you earned, fair and square.91

What We Look For

You’re wondering - where might those dollars be hiding? Common mistakes we catch during a tax return review include:

Missed education credits:

If you are a student or are a student’s parent, are you sure you are taking full advantage of the American Opportunity Credit, the Lifetime Learning Credit and all available deductions for tuition? The rules are complicated and errors are common.

Inaccurate filing status:

Selecting your optimal filing status has a strong impact on the value of some credits and deductions. For some families, changing your filing status can make you eligible for a larger refund.

Overlooked Earned Income Tax Credit:

The Earned Income Tax Credit can mean thousands of extra dollars for working families. Qualifying depends on rules regarding income, marital status, and family size – so it's a credit that's often missed. In fact, the IRS reports that only 20 percent of those eligible for this credit claim it on their tax return. And that's just not enough!
