You should get the same return, no matter who you go through. Go with the one that charges the least to file.

Your refund is going to be the same no matter how you file. If it not, then somebody did something wrong. I find this question kind of funny, sorry. It seems you are not understanding what a refund is.

First, a "return" is the forms that you fill out and send in to the IRS.  The money that you get back is called a refund. 

Second, they all use the same formulas, tables and laws, so it shouldn't make a difference which company you go with.  It's simply a matter of plugging the numbers from your information into the correct boxes on the forms and knowing which extra credits and such you might be entitled to.  They "should" all know how to do that.  But, as with anything, quality of service may vary from person to person within the same company.  There is an equal chance that an individual  preparer from either company will think of (or miss/forget) a possible credit or write off.  That has nothing to do with either company and everything to do with humans being humans.  That's why its best to be as informed as you can when you walk in the door so that YOU can suggest/ask about possible credits or write offs that might help you.

You file a tax return. You receive a tax refund. No one gives you any more or any less. No company gives you anything. The amount you are eligible to receive is what it is. Any decent tax preparer will get you the highest refund to which you are legally entitled. Unscrupulous preparers might lie to get you more. SMDH at what Americans don't know about where part of eachoaycheck goes.

Do you mean to ask who charges less to file your taxes for you? Otherwise, your question doesn't make sense because the amount of your refund would be the same no matter what company you used.
