H&R Block / bunch of crap and total rip off!

1 United States Review updated:

Hello I've been using h&r block, for years. Never had a problem--the new promotion this year, is called the imil, which 1/2 of your return, is placed on credit card (this year i went with end of the year check stub).

Which they advertise, so i did, an amount was placed on the credit card,for me,,issued by them, with mc logo on it-my first visit,,and the rest to follow--when i brought in the actual w-2,,thats when the crap started,well the remainder of monies owed to me never went on the card--they couldn't find my info in the computer(they claimed computer problems--the manager was useless, i payed 89.95& tax, for the credit card initially, the remainder was issued in two checks,,and of course they subtracted "there fees", even tho it's there "error"--what a bunch of crap--and total rip off. No more h&r block, for me.

    I had an appointment with Don at 5:15 P.M. after waiting 45 minutes for my appointment Don came out and told me he was taking a couple who came in off the street with NO appointment instead of me. The same thing happened to me last year at the H&R office in Ellwood City, after I waited an hour there! I don't feel the consumer who extends the courtesy to be early for an appointment should be treated this way.

    Tried to use the free tax filing service on H&R Block's website and instead was directed to their premium pay service. When I tried to cancel my account I set up, I was told it could not be deleted until after tax season. A talk with a supervisor was unsuccessful.
