  • I don't think they are worth the money. Many of the people that work there went though a quick training program, and then rely on their computer program to do the return. Most people can do the same by using TurboTax or something.

  • Kinda mad right now. I went to them to do my taxes using a power of attorney over my husband who can't be here. Made me wait forever and when I finally was called they said that I was missing one small clause in there and couldn't let me use it to do my taxes. Went elsewhere and they had no problem with my power of attorney.

  • The one year I used them (and paid out the you-know-what) I loved them. For me it was like paying for the convenience because they got my returns back to me so quickly and put them on a debit card. The debit card also cost me money but I didn't have a bank at that time, and couldn't get one. It was nice because they take all of the charges out of your refund, which at the time seemed like free money anyways because I had no idea I'd be getting that much back.

  • I won't use them. When our taxes were simple enough for them to handle, they were simple enough for me to do on the computer. Now that they are very complicated, we take them to a real accountant. I have no idea what they charge, but we pay $850 to have an accountant do ours.

  • My husband and I went there last year to find out if they could file an amendment on our taxes since we just bought a house. When we asked there were 3 people that stood there and argued who was going to help us then one lady looked at us and said "fine, I'll do it". My husband said "sorry we inconvenienced you by asking for your services" and then we left and went to jackson hewitt where the guy was very helpful and nice. So I guess I hate them. I would never pay to get my normal taxes done, but if I was going to I would not go there ever again.

  • They seem to be fantastic or horrible. The first year we filed with them- it was horrible. The 2nd year, fantastic. I'm not sure if we're going back again this year.
