So last year I owed federal, and H&R block charged me $80 dollars for 1 hour of work. This year, I got $967 back from state and federal on my taxes. What does H&R block do? They fucking charge me 142 dollars to do my tax prep... for a HALF HOUR. $90 for fed, $52 for state. What a fucking rip off. Had I known I was going to pay out my ass for them to do .5 hours of work, I would have bought turbo tax for 60 bucks and done it myself this year. Fortunately next year my sister in law will be a tax preparer and I can get them done for $20 bucks through her. H&R block can be such a fucking rip off, and the sad part is we do their damn phone work every year, what a giant goddamn hassle it was... They decided to put one person in charge of getting their phone lines straightened out... across the country. This one person never returned calls, either. Got really snobby with us and treated us like we're garbage. No discounts for saving the company 7000 a year in the NE Indiana area, I take it? So now basically when I get my $967 back, I have already spent $142 of it on these clowns. I guess this wasn't so much as a tax rant as a tax preparation rant. Unless you can get discounts, don't use H&R block. /rant But at least I'm almost done with the paperwork and shit to get my house. Pretty much all that is left is the appraisal/inspections, final paperwork and the exchanging of my keys.
