KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 1, 2023 – H&R Block (NYSE: HRB) is celebrating the 2023 Tax Season with a first-of-its-kind Tax Prep Tailgate event on Feb. 12, 2023. With Sunday being one of the most popular days to file taxes, H&R Block is adding fun and celebration to taxes before the Big Game by hosting Tax Prep Tailgate Do-It-Yourself (DIY) tax filing events in Baltimore, Phoenix, and Birmingham, Ala., plus sponsoring games and prizes at Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Tailgate in Glendale, Ariz.

“We told you this year we would be bringing the spirit of celebration to tax season, and now we’re inspiring people to file their taxes from anywhere – even a tailgate,” said Jill Cress, H&R Block’s Chief Marketing and Experience Officer. “H&R Block has always taken pride in giving our customers the confidence to do their taxes, whatever way they do them, with simplicity, transparent pricing, and decades of expertise.  And now it’s time to infuse a lot more fun into filing taxes, too!”

H&R Block Tax Prep Tailgate Events
Not attending the Big Game in Arizona? No problem. On Feb. 12, H&R Block is also hosting three Tax Prep Tailgate pre-game events at restaurants in Phoenix, Baltimore, and Birmingham, Ala., where people can file their taxes using H&R Block’s Online DIY product and enjoy complimentary food and drinks.

“All across the country, the day of the Big Game is filled with so many festive pre-game activities. It makes sense that as people prepare to cheer on their favorite team, they also choose H&R Block as their winning tax provider,” said Cress. “Whether people are in Arizona for the Big Game, live in one of the cities where we’re partnering with a local restaurant to create a Tax Prep Tailgate, or will be home watching the game, we hope the pre-game becomes a fun and rewarding time to file taxes.”
