Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Unfortunately, unless you paid for H&R Block's Peace of Mind guarantee (which covers penalties and interest
and up to $5,000 in taxes), H&R Block will not be responsible or accountable for a mistake that one of their tax preparers
made. Ultimately, any tax liability
that results from a mistake made by an H&R Block tax preparer is your responsibility.
My best advice would be to speak to the district manager of H&R Block regarding the situation and let them review your tax return
with the IRS letter. The IRS has been known to make mistakes so I would not just assume that they are correct.
I wish I had a better answer for you that would relieve you of any responsibility, but I do not.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank you and best regards,
