Absolute Scam!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Jackson Hewitt - Absolute Scam!
Jackson Hewitt - Absolute Scam! - Image 2

Up to $1000 early refund advance between December 11th through sometime January?? I called after scheduling an appointment online to clarify the criteria for an advanced and was confirmed the advanced was solely dependent on the amount of your return.

Double-checked there wasn't a credit check. Confirmed No!. Rules claim that your refund amount must be $2600 minus the services and fees. Service prep cost $450, and I didn't add any additional, yet I was charged $54 for the bank to create an account so the IRS will provide direct refund payment too and the owed money can then be with drawn leaving the remainder all mine.

I noticed as I had already completed the rough draft of my income return that I was accountable for a maximum repayment of $500 to the bank for an early refund advanced. Add this to the service charge and new account, and it's $900 plus a little. I hadn't been informed of the $500 at all. The $450 wasn't a concern if I could get the $1000 today!!

I actually would've been stoked to get $500. After an hour and a half I apparently was done. This accountant showed me out, I stopped and asked about the early refund, she hastily stated yes you'll hear from the bank in an hour to 24 hours, we don't process that decision She said have a good afternoon bye.! Wait, What?

We didn't discuss that at all !! Got to my car to check my messages and have one from Jackson Hewitt. Congratulations you qualify for $100 advance today. I know this sounds rude and greedy, but what the *** am I going to do with a $100 during Christmas with 4 kids, *** that doesn't cover the average cell phone bill.

My return is estimated $4150 and minus there "services and fees" of $900 or whatever it leaves $3250 and the ! Minimum refund required to qualify is $2600...mind you that $900, accounts for the repayment to the bank on the advanced of $500 Come to my attention the $500 I would be charged was the requested amount to borrow against my return THE ACCOUNTANT submitted when she completed the draft of the forms. Are they Out of their damn minds if they think I'm accepting this. $100 advance on a $4000 return costing $450 to submit, additionally 4 hours out of my day??

Ya um F-That! Not cool.

Fraud

There should be upfront pricing. I was charged $700 for a simple return. I only made $10,000 last year and Im a single mom.I would have walked out if I had known the fee upfront. There should be a class action lawsuit.i wouldnt have know the fee unless I checked thIRS website. I only used Jackson Hewit because I had so many medical bills that I thought they could help get deducted but they didnt so it was a waste all the way around.

Keeps Placing Wrong Mailing Address on Tax Returns

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Updated by user Jan 31, 2024

Company does not care that they place wrong mail address. They will not fix it. All they care about is they got their rip off money.

Original review Jan 30, 2024
Last year the Jackson Hewitt Office I use every year placed the wrong mail address on my tax returns as I moved and do not have mail forward. I called them on it and said there is nothing they can do but said he would change mail address.
As I was not going to do business with that office anymore, I went to the Walmart by me and filed this year.

After 3 hours at home, I noticed he too placed the old mail address on the tax forms. So apparently that other screw up office never changed the mail address.

I called the Walmart office and apparently gave me the brush off as he said he was with another client and will call me back. He never called back.

They are so overpriced!!

We had three tax returns done and paid over $1,200 for a two hour return (for all three). One was roughly $300.00, the other was roughly $500.00 and the other was roughly $400.00 for a few forms. They charge $99. but each form is over $200.00 each, that's how they rip you off. You went to another tax preparer and they said at most we should have paid $750.00for all three. BEWARE!!!

Poor customer service and lack of care for customer

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

I filed my taxes with your company for tax year of 2022. My taxes have been audited and this is the second year in a row.

I received the letter stating that the IRS needed until June 1 2023 to process my return due to I needed to send the IRS more documentation. I sent the documents that was needed. I have written to your staff about this issue and the no help. Your company is not holding up to your guarantee to help in this situation at all but I am also expected to pay my filing fees.

So yes I'm extremely angry with your company and I'm not going to us this company again. Now what I need from whomever gets this email is actual work help figure out what the deal is with my taxes. I will not refere anyone for any reason to do business with your company. No respect for clients and lack of work ethic at all.

Your company is a tax preparation business and you guarantee audit protection BUT where is my audit protection? Thank you for you time and again I apologize to whomever gets this email.

Someone screwed up big

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

Hi my name is helena smith. Dob 5-27-1988 i had my taxes done for the year 2020 in 2021.

I did them at rhe booth in boothwyn pa. When i filed i had told the lady head of household an when she asked weather or not i got the rebate money i hadnt recieved any of them . It took nearly 3 months for my taxes to come back . I later found out she filed me under single an said i did receive the rebates .

I had to have my taxes amended i was suppose to receive 1200 more dollars. Another 3 months later i get a letter from the irs saying i owe them 300 an some dollars . So someone along the way really screwd up. How am i the one.

Being held responsible for this when someon3 from your offices messed up.

No I had to pay the irs 400and some dollars my taxes were cut in half due to someon3 screwing up my taxes . This year I paid it.

No one reached out to me . This is ridiculous.

Irresponsible. vulgar "WHAT THE (pause) BUCK?" commercial

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Jackson Hewitt - Irresponsible. vulgar WHAT THE (pause) BUCK? commercial

On 01-24 and 01-25-23, I was shocked and outraged by the 15-second commercial by Jackson Hewitt broadcast over-the-air channels for Dateline, The Big Bang Theory and The People's Court. Utterly vulgar, offensive, and obscene commercial that cannot be ignored.

My only recourse to guarantee NOT hearing the ad is to avoid those 3 over-the-air stations! Damn you Jackson Hewitt!

Some other adjectives that have been used by complainers are indecent, moronic, juvenile, rude, crude, profane, obscene, vulgar, smutty, despicable, childish, appalling and many more. Where are the Censors??

Jackson Hewitt took down their "WHAT THE BUCK?" commercial ad on YouTube.

Now they need to pull ALL commercials from public television----and APOLOGIZE big time! Then close their doors permanently!

There really wasn’t an issue.

Original review Feb 26, 2023
I went to Jackson Hewitt tax office to sit down with a friend that works there. My tax bill came out to almost $400.00 for filing single simple taxes. Federal and two states. I said no, no way. Her boss made an offer of charging $200 instead of almost $400. I said no and left. I later found the Jackson Hewitt app so I tried that and paid $25.00 for federal and two state taxes. Ive already received notice that they were all accepted.

Cons:
  • Filing with tax preparer is like robbery

User's recommendation: I could have paid an extra $29.00 for back up help if I needed it. Go with whichever company you like. Most have federal for free and charge for state.
