    Default H & R Block

    I'm thinking about buying a franchise and I was wondering if anyone had any comments about H & R Block.

    I'd look into what the effects computer tax programs are having on brick and mortar operations before I bought one.

    A lot of the people I know are using turbo tax or tax cut ( or are asking the right questions about them), unless they have really compicated taxes, and they go to accountants anyway.

    I'd think business after April would be slow.

    Is this new or an existing franchise?
    Ask to see the business's records. Also, be carefull!
    Sometimes you buy a business, and end up getting
    the bills the previous owner ran up. The laws concerning
    this should be checked. I had a several friends get caught with big
    bills like this. I never understood how the debt could roll over to the new owner's,
    but it seems to happen here in Texas.

    All I can say Paul is that I am sure you will do a better job of taxes than the HRB firm that did mine 16 years ago. Never again and I have always done them myself with a better return. Good luck.

    with baby boomers coming round I would think specializing in the "retired/elderly tax returns" might be of benefit.

    There are still a ton of people who don't think twice about spending $150 for someone else to do their taxes...and most have a house and pay real estate taxes..nothing more..

    a lot of people just don't like or feel comfortable doing taxes..

    It is an existing business. It isn't a big money maker but for the amount of time put in it may be worth it. Thanks for your comments and there were some good points made. Time to get to work and see if this is worth the risk or not. Thanks again.
