Question by jenls79_04: I went through jackson hewitt for my tax prep and was charged 0 for 6 forms. Is this the norm?
I was told the standard average fee was $ 99 with additional charges for additional forms. I had 6 forms total, and when she was done (only 35 min later), she handed me a $ 300 bill. I filed short form (not long). Is this the standard for tax prep fees, or should I be questioning this amount?
I had four 1099’s and a 1098. Like I said, it only took her 35-40 minutes from the time I walked in, until I left the office. I never knew that I could possibly dispute the fee, or leave after she was done if I was dissatisfied with the fee. Maybe I can still stop the process, and go elsewhere (or file myself with costs like that). It was only a few hours ago that I had it done.
Answer by just me
What were the forms she had to use? How many W2s and/or 1099s did you have? Hard to say without knowing the details.
At H&R you do not have to accept the return if you don’t like the price.
