H&R Block has been in the news the past several years around tax time. As one of the larger tax preparation services, they have hundreds of employees that only work a couple of months each year. To supplement their income, some tax preparers have started using the information they have on hand to file bogus tax claims - identity theft pure and simple.
Life is so busy these days, it's easy to understand why you would use a specialist to handle your taxes. But that trust is easily violated, and can put your finances in a tailspin. I'm not saying learn to do your taxes yourself, but if you're going to H&R Block for the service, keep an eye on your money.
