I received an email from a representative of H&R Block letting me know about a promotion they will be running from January 15th through the 31st. They normally charge $19.95 for a tax question, but during that period, they will offer free advice for general tax questions. Remember, H&R Block is a business, and they make money by selling tax services, so don’t be surprised if they try to sell you a premium service while you are there. But, if you have a simple question about something tax related, this is a great promotion to get your answer for free from a group of tax professionals. There are over 500 changes to the completely unnecessary, complicated tax code, so I am sure you will have some questions this year. Here is the who, what, why, where, and when:
Who: H&R Block’s leading 110,000 tax professionals will be answering your tax questions
What: In celebration of National Tax Advice Day, H&R Block educates taxpayers on a range of tax topics including the recovery rebate credit, first-time homebuyer credit, foreclosures, stock market losses, the tax implications of losing a job and much more.
When: January 15 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 31, 2009
