H & R Block offers a free Second Look Review for taxpayers

Benjamin Franklin said death and taxes are the only two certain things in life. And only one of the two can land an American citizen in jail for not paying taxes. April 15, 2014, is only weeks away and H & R Block has two things that District of Columbia residents must know before April 15, 2014.

The first is the office on 2020 K Street, NW, has moved. The new location is 900 17th Street, NW, near the Farragut West Metro Station. The new location has the same staff of great tax professionals and the same great service. They just moved to a different location.

The second thing that H&R Block wants taxpayers to know is, “If you have filed your taxes already, bring your return to us. You may have left money on the table,” the company said. The program is called Free Second Look Review ® and H&R Block will review 2012, 2011, and 2010 taxes for accuracy and they will double check to see if all eligible tax credits and deductions were claimed.

The Second Look ® Review service is available at participating H&R Block offices. The Internal Revenue Service allows taxpayers to amend income tax returns from the previous three years to claim additional refunds that they would have been entitled to receive.

Benjamin Franklin was right. Death is certain. H&R Block is making tax preparation less confusing and the company might be able to find taxpayers money that was left on the table in the previous filings. The service applies to individual income tax returns only.

Alfred S. Pinkett, III, wants all Washington taxpayers to know that his team at H&R Block at 900 17th Street, NW, is ready to provide the same great customer service that was available on 2020 K Street, NW, and still has the best tax preparation team in DC.

Pinkett is qualified to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. “My certification is a step above the certification that preparers will be required to have as of 2013. Their certification will not qualify them to represents clients before the Internal Revenue Service,” Pinkett said.

Mr. Pinkett still believes that customer service is the most important aspect of his longevity as a tax preparer. He takes his customer service to the highest level. “I believe that I owe my customers the best possible level of service,” he said. With 35 years of customer service as a tax preparer he can offer his clients an impressive amount of knowledge on the tax codes, exemptions, and tax law. “I received my certification in July of 1998; however, I have been with H&R Block since 1980. I took my tax course in 1979,” Pinkett said.

Anyone who has done a job for 35 years will bring wisdom and knowledge to their job that can be an asset to their clients. Pinkett warns that it is not enough just to have experience; there is also the respect that he brings to his clients. “My background is in education. So I teach tax preparers as well as being a tax preparer," he said. Mr. Pinkett is a living example that he not only teaches tax preparers but he also prepares tax returns for his clients. “I began working as an instructor for H&R Block in 1982. I have been teaching since 1982. I have over 30 years of experience in teaching tax courses,” Pinkett said.
