H&R Block Unveils Tax Identity Shield(SM)

H&R Block joined with Equifax Inc. to offer its clients the product specifically directed to helping protect against tax identity theft, the Tax Identity Shield. While there are other identity-monitoring services available, none is specifically directed to helping protect against the growing problem of tax identity theft. Yet, since 2010, approximately 3 million taxpayers have fallen victim to criminals using personal identity information to file a fraudulent tax return and steal refunds from the IRS. Tax Identity ShieldSM will offer tools, resources and assistance designed to help reduce risk, promote awareness, and mitigate fallout, including assistance with restoration of the consumer's tax identity.

For clients who choose to purchase e-gift cards with a portion of their refund, H&R Block will add a bonus of up to 10%, which equates to a USD 280 bonus on the average refund of USD 2,800. Tango Card will build and manage the client's gift card selection and digital delivery process. The H&R Block refund bonus program includes over 40 retailers, including The Home Depot, Target, AMC and Macy's just to name a few.
