Consumers will have an enhanced source of help from H&R Block this year at tax time. The company is coming out with an expanded website that will allow users not only to get advice, figure out their taxes and file online, but also to get refund advances in as little as a day or to stretch the value of their refunds through a program that offers bargains on travel, cards and other purchases.
The new services will be available January 12, two days before the IRS accepts electronic returns.
