HRBlock.com offers information about the W-2 Early Access program in the File in an Office section of the website. The website details which steps to follow to receive a tax refund as soon as possible.
The W-2 Early Access page provides a search feature to determine if a particular employer participates in the program. If the search finds the desired employer, it offers instructions for sending an electronic W-2 form from the employer to H&R Block. Individuals must visit an H&R Block location to access their electronic W-2 forms. As of 2015, the Early Access feature and W-2 copy are free.
