  • Ug, that sucks. I've never had someone else do them, so I didn't know it costs that much!

  • They should tell you the cost before they do your taxes. That's extremely high. I do my own taxes.

  • Wow thats a lot. I did H&R last year and we had out of state to file too and it only cost us 100, though we don't have any kids. This year we have an accountant due to a lot of new things and not wanting to screw it up so it will cost a little bit more but that is because we have WAY more complicated things.
    Did H&R hike their prices up??
