KANSAS CITY, Mo. and PALO ALTO, Calif. –– H&R Block (www.hrblock.com) and Pageonce (www.pageonce.com) today announced an exclusive partnership that allows do-it-yourself (DIY) filers to instantly know and easily track the status of their tax refund from the convenience of a mobile device. Now more than ever, taxpayers want to know when they can expect to receive their refund. With unemployment hovering at 9 percent and last year’s tax refund averaging $3,000, this could be the largest sum of money many get all year, and this free mobile tool will allow them to track it.
H&R Block’s Tax Center is integrated into the Pageonce mobile app and provides DIY filers with timely updates of the status of their tax return, and more importantly, their federal and state tax refunds. Users simply enter their H&R Block At Home username and password in the Pageonce mobile app, and their information is automatically populated into the Tax Center. Taxpayers can instantly see when their refund will arrive.
"After preparing their taxes as usual, H&R Block At Home clients can seamlessly track their tax refund status through the Pageonce mobile app," said Jason Houseworth, senior vice president of digital solutions for H&R Block. "The IRS offers a similar service on its Web site but the information isn’t available until 72 hours after a taxpayer e-files their return and then the site information is only updated on a weekly basis."
Pageonce is the top mobile personal finance service in the United States, providing users with access to their tax information along with their cash, bills, credit cards and investments.
