H&R Block and Waze Join Forces
At H&R Block, we’re used to innovating. Just like Henry and Richard Bloch innovated over 50 years ago to create the largest franchised and retail tax business, today’s Block continues to find news ways to help, serve and interact with clients.
This week we became the first retail tax preparer to work with Waze – the world’s fastest-growing community-based traffic and navigation app. With over 40,000,000 “Wazers worldwide, we
think of Waze as the truly social-enabled GPS app. Not only do you find your way to your destination, you’re able to better navigate traffic jams by sharing what you see and experience with your friends.
H&R Block locations in seven cities – Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, San Diego, and Portland, Oregon – can now be seen on your Waze map. During tax time, we want to be top of mind and let you know where the closest office to your work or home is. Our qualified, experienced and relentless tax pros are waiting to help you get the biggest refund possible. All of this with a satisfaction guarantee.
In addition, right now you can bring in tax returns for the previous three years and we’ll do our Second Look to see if we can find you more money from previous years.
Imagine 30 million drivers out on the roads, working together towards a common goal: to outsmart traffic and get everyone the best route to work and back, every day. That’s Waze and we’re excited to be partnering with them in these markets the rest of the tax season.
For H&R Block, social interactions with our clients are part of how we listen, inform and entertain. This mobile and social partnership shows how we’re innovating in the social space to add to the overall H&R Block experience.
