I was shocked to be charged over $800 for H&R to do my taxes- never again will I use this company. I thought $425 was too much from last yr with an accountant, but this is a rip off!!
Totally scammed

They charged 90% of refund! I had to tell the gal how to fill in her forms and they wanted $770! final cost $550 - how can they discount that much??? total ripoff - never again -- oh and forms are wrong - didn't use correct form so didn't get all deductions! have to resubmit corrected copy. Going to send complain to HQ but sure they don't care!

Tax preparers are not responsible for your IRS auditing. All info you give them is from you and they can't make it up - unless they make a mistake. Even if they make a mistake, it's still your responsibility to question and find someone else.

I never let me clients walk away without knowing all the info in their filing, sad to say, most of my clients only care about how much the refund is, but not what is being filed.

Tax filing might be boring, but you only do this once a year, and it's about your money. Ask your tax preparer questions, and one important note, keep all documents such as W2s, 1099s, receipts, and other related info together with your tax filing. If you are unfortunately being audited, you won't need the tax preparer because you have all the info.

In regards to H&R Block or any other tax preparers. If you don't like the way they file your tax return, you can refuse to accept the filing and walk away. Too expensive - you don't have to pay - let them know how you feel and leave.

Do it yourself.There are plenty of sites online and free help if you get stuck.The $400.00 H&R charges fits in my pocket just fine now.
Agreed they charged me more than I got back last year and I owed h&r block like 150$ out of pocket forget them. They are terrible.

If you are getting that big of a refund that is poor planning. Refunds aren't a good thing. It is giving a zero percent interest loan to the government.

As a CPA and tax preparer, I'll just tell you to shop around. H&R block is pricey. If you shop around, there will be CPAs and EAs that charge significantly over or under for the same service.

The advantage of a CPA is that they're there year-round to answer any tax questions.

If you are getting 1099, it could be beneficial to you because you are considered self-employed, and eligible for business deductions. If you are getting W2, then you're an employee.

There are some rules that need to be complied before the company to put you in a contractor position. Perhaps you can get some advice from a CPA.

I worked for H&R Block and am a certified RTRP. You're right; they charge by form, and the e-filing makes no difference: they're still e-forms. I think the rates are extreme, but you have to remember that they're dealing with...far below average intelligence rate. A lot of that money is just "deal with them" funds, and because they end up answering lots of questions and being available for people who don't have the sense to do the research themselves. If you can file your own, then certainly do so. The only thing H&R Block will catch that you might not on your own, is a few exceptions you might not have thought through. If you're worried about that, a CPA/local accountant might be better.

I would recommend going local even if you have to use a preparer. The local tax accountants are not paying to run a big organization, a corporate facility, and all those TV ads, and they will not - unlike H&R Block - call you at dinnertime every year for the rest of your life to remind you, in a nice, cheery voice, that you need to file with them.

They charge to much. I think it is based on how much your return is, I maybe wrong but that's what I think. Still waiting for a return from 2011 that H & R screwed up. Finally had to go to a CPA to get it straightened out. Will not ever go back there again. Live and learn as the saying goes.

While they cost about the same, Turbo Tax is a little bit easier to use than H&R Block. I also used Turbo Tax for the first time this year and got a bigger return than I got during the last two years using H&R Block. I have yet to try Liberty Tax. Maybe next year.
I have been to Liberty and they are the same as H & R Block...Same charges and same manipulative behavior. I would always recommend doing you own. E-file your federal for free with turbo tax and go to a library to get your state paperwork (for free), fill it out, and mail it in. You will either owe a small amount to the state or you will get a small refund, but either way all the money is yours to keep instead of paying someone else.
