The tax changes that became law late last year won’t affect your 2017 tax return, but many taxpayers already have questions and are looking for answers from trusted professionals. They need look no further than H&R Block in Hellertown, which was founded as a locally-owned franchise in 1980, making this their 38th tax season serving the Saucon Valley.
The experienced staff at H&R Block in Hellertown have been busy training for Tax Season 2018 since September, and busy learning about the changes and how they’ll affect you practically since the moment the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed.
While these changes won’t affect your 2017 return, the new laws could reduce or increase what you owe for 2018.* And as H&R Block’s experienced staff prepare your 2017 taxes this season, they can discuss potential adjustments to help you get your best tax outcome in the future.
The bottom line is that nearly every taxpayer is expected to feel the impact of the recent tax law changes, with families, homeowners and high-tax state residents likely to be among those most impacted.

H&R Block also offers to prepare any return which can go in a 1040EZ Form at no charge ($39 for state and local returns, if desired).
