Walmart is always trying to put out a good image and I used to think positive about them. Not any more.
My 18 year old son who grossed $ 9,000 last year in 2011. I had already done his taxes for him on the E-Z form and he was getting a few hundred dollars refund. For some reason my wife told him to go down to Walmart and have a tax guy check my work. I've only been doing our taxes for the last 25 years.
Well when I get home today I see this glossy folder on the kitchen table and ask what it is. With her head bowed and begins with " I'm sorry, it is my fault, I screwed up and I'll pay him back." Walmart did his taxes and charged him $179. For what I ask knowing that I already did it on the one page E-Z form. They did a long form which took a couple dozen pages to come up with the same results.
How can they justify seeing a young kid that made less than $10 K and of course he would have no deductions rip him off like they did. I am one upset Dad who will be stopping by the local Walmart in Derry, NH tomorrow to offer a piece of my mind.
Then I go to the 3 newspapers. They used up almost his whole return.
