Jackson Hewitt experience better than H&R Block

I helped my friend do his taxes and it was an amazing experience. He had gone to H&R Block last year which was so terrible I don’t want to recount it here. So I did some research for him and found that Jackson Hewitt seemed to have less complaints than other tax prep places. No one is perfect right?

So I went with my friend today and we were in and out in 45 minutes. It was amazing. There was no one else there and because he made an appointment he got $100 off the cost. If you just walk in you only get $50 off the cost. The person was knowledgeable and helpful, and she was the fastest person that has ever helped anyone with taxes I have seen. It took 45 minutes. I have done taxes all my life with H&R Block since they were the only tax prep place where I lived. I have seen CPA’s do taxes, and read reviews of other tax experiences. Getting in independent person is a hit/miss situation. This person was great.

So the bad news is that the tax person said that he owed $3500 in taxes. However she said that she would sent it to some specialists in Hewitt Jackson to double-check that everything was correct. He got a call later that day that they found something that he qualified for and it ended up that he was owed a small amount! I was so happy for him. As an older person with a limited income he really can use every penny he can get.

If H&R didn’t help you, perhaps its time to switch. I wish I had earlier.
