H&R Block awards $1,000 sweepstakes prize

Even before the IRS started to accept income tax returns, H&R Block, the world’s largest consumer tax preparation company, was already making dreams come true for taxpayers. With the first three drawings complete, there are already thousands of winners in the company’s 1,000 Win $1,000 Daily Sweepstakes!

“We are excited to kick off the official start of the tax season by announcing our first $1,000 winners,” said H&R Block Office Manager Barry Ammerman. “Every day we see what a tax refund can mean to our clients and the joy it brings to them. Now we get to celebrate again with the lucky winners getting another $1,000 on top of their refund. This contest is about putting the ‘fun’ in Refund Season.”

Anyone who files their taxes in a participating H&R Block office by February 15 can be automatically entered into the sweepstakes. For more information, including official rules and other ways to enter, taxpayers can visit

“This campaign is about real people winning real money,” Ammerman said. “And for the next month there will be hundreds of celebrations in hundreds of cities celebrating Refund Season with our $1,000 winners.”

The H&R Block in Falmouth has produced its first winner! Amanda Case picked up $1,000 and was presented with a check on Thursday, January 21.

To get in on the fun, consumers can visit or join the conversation on social media and share how they would use an extra $1,000. Just use the hashtag #MyGrandPlan.
