Expecting your tax return soon? Well don’t hold your breathe, the IRS is experiencing massive delays this year processing returns and your expected refund date may have changed. Eventually you will get your return and have it deposited on your H&R Block Emerald Prepaid MasterCard if you made the request. You can login to check your balance by providing your user ID. If this is your first time using the H&R Block card you will be required to enroll. Once your tax return has been processed by the IRS it will be deposited on your H&R Block Emerald card and then can be used anywhere Debit MasterCard cards are accepted. Please note that once your refund payment is spent you will not be able to use the card for a purchase unless you reload it. This card is NOT a credit card. The main advantage of this card is it allows a user to avoid check cashing fees that can sometimes be charged when you cash your IRS refund check. The card is issued by H&R Block Bank and in association with a license from MasterCard International Incorporate. The H&R Block Bank is member FDIC.
A customer can also have their employee paycheck or Unemployment or other Government Benefits such as Veterans Affairs, Medicare, Disability, Welfare, and Military payments deposited on the card. The H&R Block Emerald MasterCard can be reloaded at thousands of approved reload locations nationwide such as Greendot, MoneyGram and Western Union. The card can also be used at any ATM’s that have the MasterCard Acceptance Mark to obtain cash instantly. Please note that ATM withdrawal may apply depending on the ATM you are using. If you would like to avoid those dumb fees please use an Allpoint ATM location displaying the Allpoint logo and never pay another ATM fee. Please remember that the IRS (not H&R Block) is responsible for processing your tax refund. Once the refund has been processed it will be loaded onto your H&R Block Emerald MasterCard Consumer Card.
