Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
If the HRBlock made a mistake than they will pay fees and penalties and you will be responsible for additional tax (that would be due if the return was prepared correctly the first time). If you purchased "peace of mind", an additional service that would pay up to 5K of your tax liability in case of the IRS audit, than the HRBlock will pay the fees and you will get 1099Misc for the amount of tax paid by HRBlock.
However, if the mistake was yours (you forgot to mention additional income, form or cannot prove a deduction you claimed) than the HRBlock will help you but will not pay the balance, penalty or interest.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
