I just paid $142 there to file 1040A. I had 3 w2s and all of my college info. I qualified for a much larger return than I thought I would and they applied tax credits I didn't know about, so, while it was more than I wanted to pay (I thought it would be free, but that's only if you're 1040EZ apparently), I think it was worth it to have someone who knows what they're doing do it. Last year I ended up with no return because of errors I made. Also, I'm about to leave the U.S. for several months and don't want to deal with the IRS while I'm away.

Do it yourself.There are plenty of sites online and free help if you get stuck.The $400.00 H&R charges fits in my pocket just fine now.

paid $85.00 rome tax service. The onlines are fine if your filing short form, but for mortgage and prop & school tax, medical exp,you need to go long form. The NYS tax process is rediculousely cumbersome, and if you make a mistake, it's a pain. I have heard H&R is expensive. Don't know about Jackson Hewwit.[i remember them being investigated]

I compared Turbo Tax and H&R Block's free online services a couple of years ago. Since they keep a running tally of your refund, I went through the whole process with both of them just to see what they each came up with. Turbo Tax got me back a couple hundred more than H&R Block did, using the exact same information. So I submitted the Turbo Tax form and deleted H&R Block. Been using Turbo Tax ever since.

So - you're either a liar, a sucker, or both.
And if your return was REALLY $400, you must have had self-employment or something beyond a simple W-2, which would have cost you far more at a CPA office than the four bills you paid.

yes, based on number of forms entailed...so i'm told. H&R has done my returns for 15 years. no quibble do i have. paid $265 last year.....same lady has compiled the returns for last 12 years. yess, probably would save money with Turbo, but not a whale of a lot, and it's darned nice and less worry to have a competent and experienced pro tackle the job.

Sorry but wouldn't consider anyone working at H & R Block a "pro" but enjoy!

I've been using Tax Cut for years and I have investment income and stocks and a rental home + my regular job. I came here to see why Tax Cut(now H&R Block) charges $20 to efile state knowing it costs them nothing. I never pay more than $50 a year using the software.

Used taxact.com for years its free and simple if you understand deductions.I think they charge 14.95 to e-file.The idiots who work at these tax places are like you and me they are the readers for the automated program they use on their computer and charge 100.00.What a joke!

I am a CPA and people are amazed all the time when they come in and we do a better job and charge less than the person at H&R Block. I am sure there are some seasoned veterans at H&R Blocks that are excellent tax preparers....but, if you don't know who they are you could get the yard guy that went to a 13 week course so he could make extra money off season like my client (who just wanted to try them out) did. Or, you could get the one that told a good friend she could deduct $5,000 for the USED clothes she gave to Goodwill without telling her about the extra forms and documentation she would need. Luckily, she called me and got some free advice. YIKES!

went to H&R block and the old ( i mean 75+) year old lady first spelled my wifes name wrong then entered her social security number where mine was supposed to go and screwed up our regional income tax by saying we were in one city for an entire year when in reality we have been there for only 9 months because we had moved.$330.00 later and i still dont know how to itemize properly ( i was trying to look at her monitor but she seemed protective of her 'secrets'). we bought a house, i had paid lots of interest on student loans, we deducted medical, they did our state and regional which is where the bill really started to add up and the worst part is i owed 500 dollars to the IRS, 150 to the state, 650 to our city, and 330 to H and R BLOCK!!! next year Turbo Tax all the way. FML....
