Have you noticed. The car lots, funiture stores, and even a insurance company all are starting there advertisments off with trying to get there hands on your tax returns already. I see many comercials today all saying, "with no money down just your last pay check stub you to can purchase this blah blah blah. Just come in and sign over your tax return. They don't even what you to get your hands on it first. Boy, if thats not greed. I don't know what is!!!

foret that i hope you guys realize theyll be deducting that stimulus package out of ur tax returns this year, and even if you didt get it, youll have to file that you didt cause the irs will just assume you did. i guess if you voted for it you dont mind.

On my way to work there were nothing but car commercials on the radio. Not one single different commercial! That doesnt even make sense. I had memorized the darn commercials by the time I got out of my truck.

This is nothing new. They have been doing it for years. It didn't just dawn on them that people get tax returns. If you try to get someone's money during the summer they spent it on vacation. If you try to get their money in the fall they spent it on Xmas. Retailers have to go for the money before people spend it.

Not only is it greedy (and it certainly is that) it is dangerous! These people are not tax experts they are not trained to know the latest in tax laws shich change all the time. they don't know the in and outs of what you can and cannot claim they just want your money. I am a tax preparer for H and R Block and have been for 3 years. I have to put in education training hours each year just to be hired again. I put in 60+ hours a year in continuing education and training.

I get your point, but then you dont' have to give it to them! They are just trying to get it before you do something else with it - they need the revenue too! But at the same time, I wouldn't do it as I just don't like all my personal information out there who knows where - to many ways people can steal identies. Up until last year, we didn't get a refund anyway - middle income and no write offs, so we always owed

if you are talking about the tax returns then i would say that it is a must. because thats why we are helping ourselves as well as the nation to grow and stabilize in the world. and the insurance companies are always greedy about our money they generate millions of profit from us and just share a few with us. so it is always advisable to purchase the type of insurance that fits your requirement. and the insurance coverage is exactly not meant for you but for your near and dear ones.

hi tonnie...yes well can you blame them? yes you can when you don't like greed. hehe but on the other hand also the people who can't wait to get their refund and try a faster way are just as guilty. but thats the way a lot of people are. it is frustrating to witness it if you're not like that. but just be grateful that you try to keep a good head on your shoulders.
