Last weekend of tax season means crunch time for taxpayers


Whether you’re a third-shift worker, a “night owl” or self-proclaimed procrastinator, you may need tax help beyond regular business hours as the April filing deadline approaches. H&R Block in Lakewood is staying open for at least 96 hours straight to ensure taxpayers receive the tax advice they need before this year’s April 18 deadline.

This year, the normal filing deadline of April 15 falls on a Saturday. Because the next business day, Monday, April 17, is Emancipation Day which is observed in Washington D.C., the deadline moves to Tuesday, April 18.

The community may schedule an appointment and walk-ins are welcome. For more information about H&R Block’s extended office hours or to schedule an appointment with a tax professional, taxpayers should call (562) 920-7208 or drop by 5530 Woodruff Ave Lakewood CA.
