I am 27, a single mother filed head of household as well as both my children as dependents. I made $3,404 in wages had one simple w-2 and went to HR Block they took 10 mins of my time then socked me $298 for filing. I paid more this year then I did last year with self employment, and child support. I was informed cs is not income and does not count, yet the same guy from HR Block dis my taxes last year and asked me for cs info. Needless to say my refund is $1431. Of which $298 was taken from. Even with EIC, HOH, and Single filing status.

I don't know what it's based on, but they were saying they PAID a 400 dollar fee to have their taxes done. I was charged 433 dollars, it was not disclosed to me when they were doing my taxes, and they were supposed to reduce their fees by 10 percent because we had such a bad experience at their office. I will take the other person's advice next time and just do my taxes myself. I think my wallet will like that 433 dollars, too.

My sister called me from California yesterday. The following just made my blood boil. My niece who is a college student went to H & R block in the Marysville area. She earned 11K for the year 2012 and they wanted to charge her 1,000.00 for 2 simple EZ forms!!!! In addition, she was told she was not allowed the educational expense deduction unless she spent 5K or more for the year. I told my niece not to worry that I would do her taxes, but that crook is going to get an earful tomorrow and I'm going to blast them all over the Internet.

Rcil and Utica city hall nrrp will do your taxes for free. No charge plus direct deposit into your bank account for free. Crazy to pay someone!
Very true both places will do your taxes,for free as long as you make under $50,000 single or married and you do not have a complicated tax return.

To the contrary, it's not based on your income, it's based on the forms that are used in preparing your return. It's clear either a) you didn't go there, or b) you didn't pay attention to what your bill consisted of.
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.

We paid $134.00 to get ours done. And the only reason we did it through H&R block was the company we usually do taxes with sold out to them. And we found that out after they did out taxes. It took 15 minutes or less for the lady to do our taxes. So that $600 an hour. I need to get in the tax business on the side. And to top it off we waited 3 hours to get them done in the office. That's after we had already been on a waiting list for 3 hours more before they called us because we were supposedly next in line. Will never go to H&R block to get my taxes done never again!

I have forms that aren't the simple returns and I have never been charged over $150. And they found everything I needed without me bringing the proper forms.

I saw my girlfriends from a few years ago. Pretty simple taxes, just two kids and no mortgage interest or property taxes. I think they charged her 275. That's not even the shocker. She elected to get their instant refund which is basically a loan to you until the get reimbursed from the government. I don't remember what the exact number was for the charge but I'm pretty sure it was in the hundreds of dollars. She isn't all that money smart and didn't know that there was even a charge for it. I bet a lot of people do the same.

I like Turbo tax. A lot cheaper, guides you through the questions, and for me my taxes are fairly straightforward. If I had a business or some other complications I'd go to a pro.

We have had several old HR Block clients bring us their returns. Last year, a woman with a single W-2, one child, and claiming EIC, was charged 305. For us, that is a 165 return, and it includes unlimited asssistance during the year on all your questions, and we handle any audits for you. We do not do RAL's. But we do e-file. We have clients from Washington, Astralia, England, Spain, Mexico, New York, Wisconsin, and we are in Texas. We are a small firm. I think HR Block rapes people.

Last year it cost $373 to file with H&R Block. This year we did it ourselves with Turbo Tax and saved $250! We do like our tax professional at H&R; however, we are most delighted saving a large chunk of money.

Beware the UPD trolls posting racist rants!!

The real question they won't talk about is- did Chief Williams handle the drunk utica new york cop that got caught drunk in a city car with another city employee also drunk?

Nope.

Here you see the priorities of the utica new york police under police chief Mark Williams. They spend all day on facebook and topix ranting their copaganda and posting racist taunts to scare people into thinking those utica police that are well overstaffed are "necessary".

Good work illiterate scum! You keep me going on and spreading the word to show the world what you all are, thanks! Best part- You're all so ignorant and simple... THIS is ALL ya got! "Unga bunga" UPD neanderthal jokes! Thanks AGAIN!

Ferrel APES run wild with job handed to APES

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)– A Bronx nurse’s aide was arrested recently after she was allegedly caught on video abusing an elderly Alzheimer’s patient.

Sandra Kerr, 55, was charged with three counts of willful violation of the public health law and three counts of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced Friday.

The victim’s granddaughter, Diana Valentin, became concerned about grandmother Ana Louisa Medina’s care and placed a hidden video camera inside a plant in her room at the Gold Crest Care Center on Bruckner Avenue.

“I put the camera in thinking something was going on. When I actually saw it I was horrified and heartbroken,” Valentin told CBS 2&#8242;s Jessica Schneider.“She grabbed my grandmother’s arm, twisted it back, lifted her up and slammed her into the bed.”

Nursing home administrators told Valentin her grandmother was injuring herself, but she said she didn’t believe it.

On Sept. 12, Kerr was caught on video snapping the victim’s arm back, pushing her into the metal railing of her bed and pushing the padding from the resident’s bed down onto her body, Schneiderman said.
