H&R Block tax professionals have found more than $30 million* for their clients through the Second Look® review service. Simply bring in a current year or 2005-2007 tax returns prepared by someone else to receive the free Second Look review ($29 value) between March 27-29. The offer includes a professional review of a tax return, advice on what to do if variances are found and the H&R Block Guarantee as well as audit assistance.
In the past, H&R Block found errors in four out of five tax returns prepared by other people as part of the Second Look review service. Nearly half of those who re-filed with H&R Block received a bigger refund.**
Taxpayers who did not use H&R Block, paid someone else to prepare their returns, used tax software or free online tax programs are eligible for the Second Look review. Taxpayers can amend a return for up to three years. If a taxpayer is owed a refund, the deadline to amend their 2005 tax return is April 15, 2009.
