    I’m wondering how old this page is. I was planning on having my taxes filed 2011 and the fees were $387 from Jackson Hewitt and that was the cheapest in my area.

      The partnership between Jackson Hewitt and Walmart started this year. The cheapest tax preparation fee applies to a rather simple tax return.

      If a local Jackson Hewitt office charged you $387 for tax preparation services, then your tax situation may have been more complicated to warrant the higher fees.

    I had my taxes prepared by Jackson Hewitt and I have never been so upset over preparation fees in my whole life. My taxes are very simple, and yet my bill was over $ 200. This is outragous. If Wal-Mart lets Jackson Hewitt remain in there stores, they are hurting anyone who walks thru those doors.

    I HAD MY TAXES FILLED OUT AT A WALMARTS STORE THINKING IT WOULD BE CHEAPER. I HAD 1 – W2, 1 -1099, AND INTEREST FROM BANK ( THATS ALL)…. COULD USE EZ TAX FORMS. WAS NOT THERE 10 MINUTES. COST ME $193.00. WAS RIPPED OFF. I DO NOT BLAME THE WAL-MARTS STORE….I REALLY DON’T THINK THEY KNOW WHAT JACKSON HEWITT IS CHARGING. LETS PUT IT LIKE THIS IF YOU THINK YOU ARE GOING TO BE CHARGED $38.00 TO HAVE YOUR TAXES DONE FORGET IT….

    I have the tax return done by the CPA (Sonny & Company, CPA at http://www.sonnycpa.com) less than $200.00 which including W-2, 1099, itemized deduction, mortage….Jacson Hewitt charged me $325. I feel comfortable when I have the CPA do tax return.
