H&R Block Participates in Fast IRS Refund Program
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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
