I recieved a letter with a plastic card included with information about the H&R Block Emerald Advance. Which, yes on approved credit, based on what your antisapated tax return will be, will loan you up to $1000.

I brought all the information and papers needed to my H&R Block agent. I was told to antisapate a return of $8,470.00. How ever my loan was denied within 2 seconds of my agent pressing the send button.

My agent said (I quote) "I'm sorry your loan wasn't approved. It's sad 80% of the loans aren't. I've only had one approved that I have done. People get their hopes up and well...you should get your w-2's soon."

80%!!!!

Why even bother to waste the paper and plastic cards with loans % like that!!!

You are done doing business with them because you have bad credit? Guess you do the same at the bank you use to then right?

Yes I have been filling with them since 1988 I have only received one loan and have been getting denied every since. So I have not been back to h&r block since......why pay all of your money to them to get your taxes prepared and you are denied the loan.......sad.

I just went today after being an H&R Block customer for 8 years and doing the line of credit for 7 years and was denied. Should be recieving almost $10,000 for tax refund and nothing has changed. We always paid them back on time and have always got the $1000 line of credit. I don't know what is different this year but thats the only reason we continued to use H&R Block for our tax preperation. They just lost our business and I am sure many more to come. Best of luck to everyone this year o. The line of credit.
