H&R Block Participates in Fast IRS Refund Program

Kansas City-based H&R Block has joined one of several tax services participating in a new IRS pilot program offering faster refunds in exchange for more heavily scrutinizing taxpayer claims.

It's a win-win situation for both parties. Experts figure that Block and other services also will charge lower rates to file taxes should taxpayers want to participate based on a faster return on investment and time differences.

The Service calls the new program "Debt Indicator." Overall, the program is designed to ensure that taxpayers aren't delinquent on back taxes, student loans, child support and other forms of debt prior to issuing a refund.
