I had HR Block calculate our state tax return, they came up with a return of:
- $37 hr block fee
= $147 Refund
I decided to go to the Ohio website and do the taxes myself. It's been a while since I've done them on my own but they weren't too complicated. The ohio site calculated my refund at $151. But filing taxes on the website are free.
The only reason that I can think of that there is such a difference is that on the Ohio site it asks if I've ordered anything online that I have not paid taxes for. Ummm, yeah. But HR Block never asked this question.
I went ahead and filed through the Ohio site since that gave me $4 more.
