The H & R Block in Newton is locally owned by a franchisee, Paul Brunson and is staffed by your local friends and neighbors, some of whom have worked in the local office since 1995.  We have nearly 100 years of experience by our tax professionals who are available from January until April 15th from 9am to 9pm on Monday through Friday and 9:00am to 6:00pm on Saturday.  We are closed on Sunday.  After April 15th, we continue to be open year round on Monday and Thursday from 12:00pm to 6:00pm or by appointment at your convenience.


The greatest benefit of working across the desk from a trained tax professional who knows the intricacies of the tax laws and does continuing education every year to stay up on the many changes is that the tax professional works one-on-one during the interview to identify your unique situation and ensure that we find every legal deduction and tax credit to minimize your taxes or maximize your refund.  When you do it yourself, you don’t know which questions to answer and how to answer them to get the same result.  When your return is completed at H & R Block, we guarantee our work and put our money where our mouth is.  Unlike other paid preparers, if we make a mistake that results in your owing more tax, including penalties and interest, we will pay the penalties and interest.  If you purchase an optional service called Peace of Mind, we will also pay up to $6,000 of federal and/or state taxes that are due.  In addition, our Peace of Mind service provides you with a free Enrolled Agent from H & R Block who will represent you if you are called in for an audit with the IRS.  You don’t even have to show up unless you want to.


When we prepare your return and you are entitled to a refund, but don’t necessarily have the funds to pay for our tax preparation service, we have an optional service that will have our fees taken out of your refund and then you will receive the balance so you can pay no money down upfront.
