Instant Cash Back® Fees
Instant Cash Back® fees are set by the Federal Government of Canada.
The law dictates you receive 85% of the first $300 of your income tax refund and 95% of the rest.
For example, if you have a $600 refund, the amount you'll receive from H&R Block is $540**. For the first $300 of your $600 refund, we’ll give you 85% or $255. On the remaining $300 we'll give you 95% or $285. Take $255 + $285 = $540.
The $60 difference from $600 covers not only your Instant Cash Back® fee, but your tax preparation fee as well!
