H&R Block launches National Tax Advice Week

    Locations across the country answering questions for free to help the tax

    CALGARY, March 17 /CNW/ - H&R Block Canada, the leading tax preparation
company in Canada, has declared March 24 to 28 National Tax Advice Week and
are offering Canadians the opportunity to have their tax questions answered by
a professional.
    "A recent survey we conducted showed that over two-thirds of Canadians
were unaware of the new tax laws and changes for their 2007 tax return," says
Cleo Hamel, Senior Tax Analyst, H&R Block Inc. "It is important to understand
what credits and deductions you are entitled to because you don't want to pay
the government more money you need to."
    The tax changes could make an impact on most tax returns. For the average
Canadian family with two young children, the new tax laws and changes could
mean between $500-$600 in tax savings - and possibly more.
    "National Tax Advice Week is meant to try and help Canadians understand
their tax return," explains Hamel. "One of the biggest mistakes people make is
thinking they don't qualify for a credit when actually they do. Our tax
associates are available to answer any questions - it is always better to ask
than not claim a credit."
    During National Tax Advice Week, H&R Block tax associates will also be in
the community offering tips and advice in their neighbourhoods. H&R Block tax
associates are trained to ensure their clients receive their maximum tax
