I like that they offer peace of mind. I feel like they get us the most money back too. The most annoying part is that everyone seems to have trouble with filing for Pennsylvania's state tax return. And I wish they offered a reduced fee for military or something. Otherwise though we still always choose them each year.
I've used H&R block for the past 3 years. The first 2 I went to a local office and worked with a tax professional and this year I did it myself online. Both methods were great. I felt secure with my deductions, directions were clear and easy to follow & I am always left confident that I am getting my maximum refund
Always use them when I was younger because they always got me the most back and my return but their prices are ridiculous... didn't realize how high I was paying till I found my own tax person at a tax firm Who does it fraction of the cost and I still get high returns.. probably will not go back to H&R Block due to the cost
not all h and r blocks are bad. but the experience I had one year made me never want to go to another again. in the city you don't see them open all year around but on long island they were open most of the year. up until 2011 I had never had an issue. the receptionists were usually nice. the wait wasn't ever too long. but not all of the tax experts were great.
Pretty effective website for being able to submit your taxes. I wish it didn't cost as much to be nice if they shave down the price a bit especially now with certain companies offering tax preparation for free. But all in all well organized and you have the opportunity to link your tax information from the year before.
Genuinely mixed experiences with my tax preparers (especially in individual thoroughness and clearly explaining my taxes to me) but overall, the positives have outweighed the negatives. It’s worth the money to have the peace of mind and professional stamp of approval - just make sure you’ve got all your paperwork!
H&R Block is a waste of money and has never gotten me back much money. I filed a W-2 with them and had to pay over $40 and only received about $100 back, and with TurboTax it was free and I received SO MUCH more money! Please save your money, do your taxes online for free with TurboTax. H&R Block
It's really easy to use, and the only problem that I have with it is that if you use the upgraded version of it when you're filing you have to pay extra but if you don't use the forms there's no way to go back at the end and change the way you're filing. You have to call H&R Block and they have to manually go in and change it for you.
Used to go to them in Iowa because we didn't have a close enough Jackson Hewitt. Jackson Hewitt is cheaper, and they're more on top of our options as working college students. I'd probably recommend them with those caveats.
This is an organization that has saved me a lot of time when it comes to doing my taxes. However, this is a much more expensive alternative to doing taxes online and on your own. You do pay a pretty penny to get your taxes done, which is why this is 4 stars instead of 5. But in my opinion, it is definitely worth the extra money!
