I run a day care and file a joint tax return we went to H&R last year (stupid) and paid $730. Howard, and Barone CPA's in New Hartford a good they charged me $550 and my return was a lot more than what I got through H&R

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.

Well someone owes or works for H & R ~ You over charge we all know it. There is nothing worse then a greedy company trying to act like they care!

I was checking out what others said about H&R and other tax preparation fees. Interesting about H&R though in defense of Turbo Tax, I have used it for years and my previous return information is always available for me to access not to mention I only pay about a total of $130 a year to file self-employment/home 1040 and state taxes. Just surprised you paid so much and am not really sure how. Your return must've been really complicated is all I can figure.

I used them in the past and they were alright but then switched to a CPA. My CPA is on vacation for 3 weeks and I'm quite impatient so I went to H&R today.$372 but I had a lot of investment income and shit load of forms. They told me they charge by the form. Anyway, I went home and played with the turbo tax and came up with close to the same amount as H&R block. Subtract what the socked me for and I'd be better off doing it myself. No no H&R.

While they may not have paid attention to the billing, you are incorrect. HR Block and other national tax offices charge rates around $400 for W-2 returns, with no self-employment. Most CPAs would do the same return for far less than HR Block!

If that is all inclusive, including the bookeeping, it actually sounds like a great price. I would think that even $2,500-$3,000 would be reasonable with the multiple state returns, and all of the bookeeping and tax forms that were required.

That's price sounds high end. You'd be able to get a CPA or tax professional (that isn't a crook like block or hewitt, etc...) to prepare your return for an average of $500 but that's for the return alone. I can't comment on the accounting fees, don't know what they start at or what yours in particular consisted of.

I think everyone's tax returns will be delayed this year due to the budget problems. Congress hasn't agreed on tax rates yet. Once they do the IRS needs to rewrite the forms. H&R block or any other service can't prepare or file your taxes until the correct rates are available and the forms are finalized. If you are one of those people that get excited and wait all year for tax time prepare to wait a little bit longer.

I paid 525 only after getting a discount for complaining fees were too high. Forms not complicated, dependents, w2, and property taxes. Tax preparer was uninformed and it was not worth my money. Turbo tax is much better option. I only used h&r for peace of mind, but for $30 I could have paid turbo tax it would have been better. I had the same $ return when I estimated the return myself so they did not save me any money

Well H&R block has helped me last year my person there helped me get IRS payments stopped and get 3 yrs of taxes in order if not for her I would still be making them she went above and beyond to help . I had a mess and was about to give up the IRS is able to take every dime you have if there is not the people outside there office that know the law.I am so glad I went there I had used Turbo for years I got lucky and found a H&R angle there prices are well worth what she saved me from and they know the laws and what is supposed to be done so if you had a bad exper try another tax consultant if you also got a w-2 after filing you better do amended because turbo will not advise you that IRS will take the taxes not reported years latter with fines even if it is mistake so wait for all your w-2 then amend ..I like my H&R person she saved me thousands in IRS fines and nerves break down..lol

The best Tax Preparer is Jennifer Gilbert, CPA. She owns J Gilbert & Co. She's knowledgeable in all areas of taxation and has close to 20 years experience. Plus she's very personable and easy to do business with. I wouldn't trust my yearly filing to anyone else!
