Do NOT Go Here!.
This place was a complete waste of time, lacked professionalism and knowledge.
First, there were two tax preparers who were not doing anything yet I was still told to wait. I waited 20 minutes for one woman to finish "cleaning" up her desk. There is a problem with my taxes that I had to extend so I could figure it out before I paid... however, she told me I did NOT HAVE to file my taxes. She said I have 3 years to claim anything (if any) so it's okay. Who in the world says that?? I knew this was wrong as my dad had gone to H&R Block for me, but they couldn't complete the extension due to not having my full w-2. The woman at the one my dad went to said I DO have to pay taxes once I clear this one issue up.
BUT the woman at this 1220 N Broad H&R said I did not have to file anything, because I would hit "about even" and owe zero. She did not calculate anything. She just assumed. She told me that I did not have to fill out a Schedule C which I do for my 1099 (which I do which is the whole point of the extension because I am incorrectly classified).
She then proceeded to tell me that I did not have to file my earnings on the 1099 in Philadelphia. For someone who works with taxes and in the freaking city, she clearly doesn't know what she's talking about. She said because I wasn't a resident, I didn't have to file. This is ALSO UNTRUE. You can just go on the Philadelphia revenue website. It clearly states if you did work in Philadelphia, regardless of where you live, you must pay the city wages. After this, I just knew she had no idea what she was talking about, ignored her and left.
She was so frustrating and refused to listen to me, and if I had stupidly listened to her, I would be delinquent on my taxes for her idiotic information.
I got everything cleared up by someone else who does NOT work at this place.
