Local resident receives H&R Block Sweepstakes Award
H&R Block of Smithfield, a long-time member of the Greater Smithfield-Selma Area Chamber of Commerce, has recognized Johnny Brockington of Kenly with a $1,000 daily sweepstakes award offered by the company. H&R Block has put the “fun” back in refund season. Winners of the H&R Block 1,000 Win $1,000 Daily Sweepstakes are celebrated at local H&R Block offices at designated times and have their pictures taken with giant, winner checks by office staff and local officials. Thirty-two thousand people will win $1,000 from H&R Block during the first month of tax season. Anyone who files their taxes in a participating H&R Block office by Feb. 15 can be automatically entered into the sweepstakes. By filing early in the season, taxpayers are helping protect themselves from tax refund fraud. As part of its efforts to encourage taxpayers to file their tax returns early, H&R Block is giving away $32 million through its 1,000 Win $1,000 Daily Sweepstakes. H&R Block of Smithfield is located at 721 N. Bright Leaf Boulevard. Chris Wilson is the franchise owner.
