H&R Block Canada to Help Federal Civil Servants Get Their Taxes Right

Government of Canada employees and their partners get an extra incentive for
filing with Canada's tax leader this season in light of Phoenix payroll system issues

TORONTO, March 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada's tax leader, H&R Block, announced today all federal Government of Canada employees and their partners are eligible for a 20% discount when filing taxes at any H&R Block location across the country.

"H&R Block has been helping Canadians file their taxes for more than 50 years and we intend to continue on that path this tax season," says Richard Brown, President at H&R Block Canada. "In particular, we wanted to help with the issues federal public servants have faced this year due to the concerns caused by the Phoenix payroll system. We believe taxes shouldn't be difficult, stressful or costly and hopefully this discount will help Canadian civil servants get their taxes right."

Having expert support is even more crucial for federal employees this year, as the Phoenix payroll system used to manage the federal payroll has experienced a number of issues. The discount being offered will also apply to any subsequent refiling that may result from inaccurate tax slips issued by the Phoenix payroll system.
