Tax preparer H&R Block to refund 656 consumers over $33K

The Associated Press

CONCORD - The New Hampshire Attorney General says tax preparer H&R Block has agreed to refund 656 consumers over $33,500 after it was accused of erroneously charging them for preparation of a state business and profits tax return.

Attorney General Joseph Foster said Friday no such return was warranted or filed on behalf of the consumers.

The agreement resolves allegations that H&R block violated the state's Consumer Protection Act. Foster said the tax preparer cooperated fully with the investigation.

As part of the agreement, H&R Block must develop and implement improved protocols to prevent such a charge, as well as training for tax return preparers on the need to verify the appropriate use and billing for New Hampshire business tax returns.

H&R Block provided a toll-free number for questions: 1-855-210-7145.
