After having our taxes done for a few years now at H&R Block and paying the astronomical fees for years, this year we really needed to save those fees to help towards other troubled areas in our life. My husband went as normal to get them prepared at H&R Block and when it came time to file he told the woman that he has been dealing with for years..
that this year we wanted to send them in the good old fashion way so we could save the money.
She told him it doesn't matter what way he files the costs are the same $355!!!! Next year we will be going else where my stomach is SICK and the unfortunate thing is 2011 tax year we probably would have went back to filing as normal paying $3++ but with the lack of OPTIONS to file on your own once they are prepared and compassion to those that just cannot afford it has been a real turn off.
