A new H&R Block retail tax office is now open at 1168 Oakland Market Dr. to help residents navigate an increasingly complex tax code and claim all the credits and deductions they are entitled. The office celebrated its Grand Opening on Saturday, January 25, 2014.
“For nearly 60 years, H&R Block has been delivering trusted tax advice in neighborhoods across the country,” said Elaine Domin, the Client Service Leader for the new H&R Block location. “We're excited to open this office and to meet and serve our new neighbors.”
More than 50 open house attendees talked with H&R Block tax professionals about tax law changes, tax planning and other financial resources available through the office. Kids had their faces painted and played with balloon animals. Blackbeard's Cove provided a putting green. The Mount Pleasant Fire Department stopped by and let kids climb on the fire truck. East Bay Deli provided sandwiches and cookies. Pet Helpers had dogs for adoption and adorable Dinero found his forever home.
The official ribbon-cutting was held at 1:00 p.m., officiated by Vice President of Membership for the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Paul Miloni. Other special guests included Chamber Ambassador Mark Edington of Job Doctors International, and a standing cut-out of Richard, H&R Block's “Get Your Billions Back, America” spokesman.
