Pros:easy and quick tax filing, rapid refund

Cons:cost

The Bottom Line: H&R Block provided me with quick, easy, and convenient way to prepare and file my taxes. I recommend them and will continue to use them.


It's tax time again!  And...I'm happy to say my taxes are done.  

For the past two years I have gone to H&R Block to have my taxes prepared and filed.  Last year was the first time I tried their tax service and I was very pleased with their service all around. I went their again this past week to do my taxes for this year.  

If you are interested in doing your taxes through H&R Block, you should call and make an appointment prior to the day you would like to go in.  They do take walk-ins, but you will have to wait a while.

At the location I went to the fee was $85 to prepare and electronically file both your federal and state taxes. The fee may vary at a different location.

The tax preparer uses a software program on H&R Block's computer and enters the information you provide them. You receive a printout of all pages. H&R Block saves your information on computer, so if you file with them more than once your basic information is all ready in their computer. I received a printout comparing my income/taxes of last year to this year.

Some would say "Why pay $85 when can use Telefile (do your taxes over the phone) for no fee or buy your own tax preparing program?"  My reasons for filing with H&R Block are:

1) The tax preparers know more about tax laws than I do.
Last year I was able to get $600 credit because I was a student.  I was not aware of the new law that had just passed that year and if I had not gone the H&R Block I would not have gotten that $600 credit.  This year I also was able to get a good amount of credit for being a student. The tax preparer also informed me about a couple other write-offs I was unaware of.

2)  They offer rapid refund.  Rapid refund allows you to receive your tax check (if you are receiving money!) within 24-48 hours. Of course there is a fee for this service. If you are receiving money back and would like your money REALLY quick...the $40 fee is worth it, in my opinion. The $40 was to receive my federal tax check by rapid refund. I did not do rapid refund for my state taxes, so those will come in the mail.  

Overall, I am very pleased with the tax preparing and filing service H&B Block has provided to me. The employees I have dealt with were knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I also like the service of their rapid refund...and it will come just in time for my little vacation this weekend.

Of course as with everything, this service may not be great for everyone, however, I WILL be stopping by an H&R Block office again, in January of 2002.



Thank you for taking time to read. :)
