H&R Block Errors! (from 2014)
Go to this link if you think about using a gloried tax service that markets like they are pro's but just doesn't deliver.
Hamel is quoted as saying the " Every tax return prepared in Canada is covered by a guarantee called the Block Advantage".
However, not so fast, I have two clients that got paid on this and two that didn't. So they publish this, but I would caution that this is really a hit and miss and not a 100% true statement, but really slick marketing.
Two clients of mine John G of Innisfil and Judith H. in Aurora would disagree with this guarantee quote for the missed disability tax credits and transfer and loss in interest after I cleaned up the errors for missing these claims. No interest was recovered for the time value of money, but I did get the taxes back years for them years after the fact on the same errors which happend over and over.
So maybe I am biased, but please use a Chartered Professional Accountant to get the most out of your tax return and yearly tax planning. I work with your financial planner, lawyer, insurance broker, banker, and become part of your professional team. The results are superior to a low end tax/data entry serice that naturally underservices its clients and offers a weak guarantee, in my view, but tries to look the part of a CPA.
If you need further advice on Section 45(2) mentioned in the article, please give me a call or e-mail.
