H&R Block is a joke! I do not recommend anyone to use H&R Block. We filed our taxes 2/02/09 and we still have not recieved a dime. We paid over $450.00 for a simple tax return. What? That is so outrageous. To get our money back in 1-2 days no gaurantee it would have cost us over half of our return. We filed to have them back in 8-15 days. It has been three weeks. I have called and called to find out where our money is and they have no answers. They sent us an email today saying our money was direct deposited today, and yet no money there. So I waited over two hours on the phone to see why, and they said that there is turn around time from their bank. How is there turn around from their bank, when the IRS sent them the money? The money is already there. The money should be straight into my account. We shouldn't have to wait a month to get our tax return. Then they don't take any responsibility what so ever for their companies lies. I understand that sometimes things come up, but do not sit there and tell me that they have my money, and not give it to me. Has anyone else had problems with H&R Block? I warn everyone not to use H&R Block.

Hey tlb! My boyfriend went to H & R Block and I warned him that I didn't think that it was a good idea! He told me the same thing that they told you and I said I didn't believe it either! It has been only one week so I can't tell yet what will happen! They did charge alot more than I felt was necessary for a simple straight forward tax return! And said he would have the money direct deposited into his account in two weeks! I don't believe it will happen either and that they will come up with some story too! I will be monitoring what happens next! If something does go wrong I will make sure they are reported to the BBB and I'm sure that it won't be the first time either. I have heard some not so good stories about them before and I did warn him!

I actually did report them to the BBB, and I am continuing to tell people about how awful their services are. I don't want other people to have to go through what we went through. I hope things go better for your boyfriend then the did for us. Thank you for your response.
