Maybe you should grab that cashier job. "Normal smart people" like you who think "which wasn't not a piece of cake" is proper English can't be too choosy. By the way, did Mel Gibson help you with that last sentence? Or did your true bias just slip out?

I'd say the cashier job is a good idea as well.

The first year I worked, I worked the three or four weeks surrounding peak. Done. And I was mainly done because everything that came in the door was too complicated for me to do anyway. The next year I knew more, and was able to do slightly more complicated returns, so I was asked to work all season.

Just because you passed the basic class, it doesn't mean you're qualified to complete complex returns. You're a BEGINNER. You're not going to be making accountant wages,'blockie'.

Each H&R Block office sets up their own pay system. Some are corporate offices, some are franchise. I work at a franchise office and we were paid commission the first two years, after that, the structure was changed and is now hourly, with incentives, and I assure you it's not minimum wage. It's well worth my time and efforts. Our office NEVER uses a temp agency. The owner knows if she wants to keep quality tax preparers, she has to pay them what they are worth, or lose them.

My guess is that the H&R Block office you took your class through isn't really interested in you as an employee and is hoping you'll go away. You've probably spouted comments like the one you made about Jews, and made it clear you aren't H&R Block material. One moron who took the basic class when I did made a comment about how Mexicans don't have to pay taxes, and that it's all a big conspiracy for them to take over the world, funded by the IRS.

Hmm. That wasn't you, was it??

The district manager said that the job will only last a couple of weeks in February, during the rush.
Personally, I think all should be put on the table BEFORE people sign up for the training.
The only reason a person would want to work the few weeks, is so they can get additional classes at $20 for the whole summer, books included.
The H & R Block tax prep books are #1 for learning. No other books are out there that are as good.
Then, I found out that H & R Block hires temp people. Those poor souls that have signed their names to slave contracts to get a job. The temp worker receives $10.25 per hour!!!! That means that H & R Block pays the temp agency anywhere from $15 to $20 per hour for those people.
I don't get it. Why is it normal, smart people can't make a living anymore? ONly Jew joints like the Block and temp agencies have a right to rake in tons.
You're an idiot. A small minded, petty little idiot. That's why you don't rake in tons. Normal, is it? Get a life!

It's unbelievable that in this day and age, with what's going on in the world, that people like Blockie (is that the shape of the head) still talk and think like that. What does it take to learn that thinking like that is what continues the wars and the hate.
Cheeze, what a moron.

From a random 9 year preparer:

who works for the evil empire,
H and R Block
He are my actuals yr 1 to yr 9

Year 1 (1997)$7.08/hr
Year 2 $9.00/hr
Year 3 $10.00/hr
Year 4 $12.00/hr
Year 5 $15.00/hr
Year 6 $17.00/hr
Year 7 $25.00/hr
Year 8 $30.00/hr
Year 9 $30.00/hr

What happens it takes 2-3 years to get clients
to come in to see you. Clients don't just walk in the door and plop down in front of you.

By the way in my previous career I was an
engineer.{1972-1995}.

I had to graduate from UC Berkeley in 1972 before
I got a job that paid [gasp]$900/month in 1972.
Gas was only 29 cents a gallon in 1972

Dear Brain Surgeon, I was just hired to be a basic tax preparer, but none of the Managers who interviewed me would give me a base-wage quote. I realize that there may be a commission structure. Can you give me an idea of what 1st yr preparers make in your office? I will have a BA in accounting in May. I don't know if that figures in or not. Thanks!

I am in my 11th year of working for H&R block and love every minute of it. The pay rate is low to start but once you prove yourself and get more education your pay will sky rocket. I agree with the wages that Brain Surgeon posted mine were almost the exact same. One pointer to everyone don't take a job because you are looking for a high pay take it because you like what you will be doing and you will be successful and happy at the same time

If you want to really make some money doing personal tax returns then do it on your own. What are you thinking.

These people who have responded to you obviously work for Blockie. They should work with one of blockie's employees who could care less about H & R Block or the associates she has employeed under her.

No, next you have to pass the yooyoo they place you with who doesn't care if you work there are not. After 18 years she doesn't want any help, she wants it for herself.

Well, I just finished my first season with H & R Block. In early January, I made the mistake of asking about a weird thing in the Schedule A computer software. The law had just past congress reinstalling the option for either a sales tax deduction or an income tax deduction. The software wanted us to put in "Y" for sales tax for some weird reason, even though you wanted the income tax option.

I was basically training myself on the software. But when I came to this, I guess I just wanted some feedback as to if the "Y" was correct or not.

Oh MY GOD! I asked a question to an 8 year person.
I may have as well killed someone. I was belittled and ranted on. I never did get any feedback.

So I shut up and didn't talk anymore.

I've already decided not to return next year. I am going to take the classes in the summer, though. I'm going to go somewhere else to prepare tax returns.

This past six months has been pure misery. Fortunately, I didn't do my own taxes on their machines.

ON Schedule A the tax payer have a choice of states or genernal sales tax.
When you put yes you will get a popup. That is where you would add your state and 365 and % for your state there. Then another box poppup. If the client kept records of taxes they paid on food, clothes, motor vehicle.
You would enter that amount there. once you are done. You get out of that part. Now you will have a choice between the state and General sales tax amount. You put yes on the one that is higher.

Alot of people who been working for H&R for awhile forgot that at one time they used to be a 1st year tax preparer.
Don't let one preparer discourage you in working for H&R.
