  • Nope. We tried to online, but there site seemed to be down. So we just went some where else.

    The rapid refund hasn't exactly been done away with, but it has been revamped. And djsmommy is right H&R block has been taking a lot of heat for giving out RALs. It's basically a scam for poor people.

    Anyway the reason RALs aren't as popular anymore is because the Government will no longer say whether someone has garnished your tax refund or if you owe back taxes. Without that information it makes it risky to give RALs to people who possibly won't be getting a refund.
