A few months ago, I posted on how H&R Block was starting a new program to help immigrants fill out immigration forms. Well,H&R Block decided that they didn’t want a piece of the immigration pie after all. Long story short, AILA threatened legal action for unauthorized practice of law and H&R Block decided it wasn’t worth the fight.
This really isn’t too terribly surprising. On the one hand, I’m happy that I no longer have to compete with H&R Block. On the other hand, there are almost certainly folks that H&R Block would have helped that may instead end up with a notario. And I’m really not sure, but H&R Block is probably better than a notario….probably. At least if something goes wrong, H&R Block has deep pockets!
