Stay Away From Tax Refund Loans

Would you pay a 521-percent annual interest rate, or fees that equal that much, to borrow money that belongs to you? That's what taxpayers may do when they get a loan from their tax preparer, in anticipation of a tax refund. They start out with hopes for quick cash and end up losing more than 10 percent of their refund in fees. These fees went to preparers, such as H&R Block, who aggressively promote refund loans during the tax filing season. They offer a tax filer money based on the anticipated tax refund. A bank makes the payment through the tax preparer. The money is actually a loan, repaid by the refund.
