Exchange, H&R Block Offer Discount on Tax Preparation

DALLAS – The Internal Revenue Service expects more than 155 million tax returns to be filed this tax season, with more than 70 percent of taxpayers receiving refunds. To take the guesswork out of filing for military members and their families, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is teaming up with H&R Block to provide tax preparation services at a 10 percent discount at Exchange locations worldwide.

“To make it even less taxing, if you file a 1040EZ form, the tax professionals will do it for free until Feb. 28, said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor.

Filers who use H&R Block’s services at the Exchange will receive complimentary access and support during tax season. Military shoppers will also receive H&R Block’s Audit Assistance to help prepare a response in the event of an audit.

H&R Block tax preparation at the Exchange also includes a free second-look review. Tax professionals will examine tax returns from the last three years to see whether filers are entitled to money that was not claimed.
