Free Tax Advice for the Santa Barbara Community

Tax Experts H&R Block Partner with SB Hispanic Chamber to Offer Tax Workshop Aimed at Entrepreneurs and Small Business

H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB), the world’s largest consumer tax services provider, announced today it has partnered with the Santa Barbara Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to offer a free tax workshop on Thursday, January 23, from 5:30 -7 pm to be held at its office at 3890 La Cumbre Pl (next to Hamburger Habit at La Cumbre Mall).

H&R Block will present a 45-minute presentation that will highlight recent tax changes and share information on how small businesses can best prepare their tax documents for maximum effectiveness.

“Anyone self-employed, including freelancers, needs to track what they earn because even if they don’t get a 1099 or W-2, reporting this income is required by law – even when the payment is made in cash,” said Bill Norris, district manager for H&R Block.

Tax talks are free and open to the public. A tax professional, or a team of tax professionals will present the latest information and then answer questions.

For more information about the H&R Block Tax Talks or the company’s products and services, call (805) 258-1175, or email:
