CIRCLEVILLE - Melissa Sherfey, office manager, and eight tax preparers opened the new H&R Block location at 156 Summit Ave. in Circleville on Nov. 23.
“We’re pleased to open our new locations,” said Mitch Hilderbrand, district manager for H&R Block. “The increased visibility and amenities of this site make access and parking much easier for our customers.”
The office will employ 10 people and be open officially on Jan. 3, 2012, but tax preparers will be available to make appointment for tax season.
The H&R Block office offers tax preparation services for all state and federal tax returns for individuals, families, and businesses.
For those who like to get an early start on taxes, H&R Block offers W-2 Early Access. Getting one’s refund quickly is always important - even more so in these tough economic times. H&R Block recognizes this and has worked to help clients get their refund faster. The free W-2 Early Access service helps taxpayers file sooner and get their refunds up to three weeks earlier than waiting for the mail.
“Taxpayers don’t want to wait for their refunds,” said Sherfey. “This service helps them plan ahead for e-filing this year. And if they are owed a tax refund, it means they may get it up to three weeks sooner.”
This free, online service allows taxpayers to search for their company and send secure copies of their W-2s directly to their local H&R Block tax office at no additional cost. Jan. 31 is the deadline for employers to mail all W-2s.
The W-2 Early Access also includes these services:
• Replacement copies of lost W-2s that were mailed
• Easy access to W-2s for taxpayers who no longer work with a specific employer
