After 2 weeks of trying (thru all available channels) to contact HR Block to rectify an issue with a promo to BUY their product, YES I REPEAT>>> BUY $$$$ their product… (download) after being a loyal customer for 10 years, I find chat with the hope that my issue will be resolved. Below is the response that is unedited (except for my phone number being x’ed out). Imagine having a real problem with a return when they are actually unwilling to help you buy their product. Who has any connections to major media ?? This is the response……………….. Turbo Tax, Tax Act or any other software anyone ?? Welcome to H&R Block Technical Support. Please wait while we find a technical support agent to assist you. You have been connected to Kevin B.. Kevin B.: Hello Lou, welcome to H&R Block Tax Product Support!

Lou P: Your Supervisor has to have the ability to contact SOMEONE who can at LEAST call me back……. Kevin B.: Lou, here at tech support. We do not send outbound calls. The only way we can have someone call you, is to escalate your software issue. You do not have a software issue. Like I have previously stated, we handle software issue. You are asking of me for something out of my reach. I really wish there was something I could do. Kevin B.: It has been approximately four minutes since we last received a response from you. Unfortunately, I can only wait for another minute before disconnecting this chat session. I will send a final response before I disconnect this chat session. I apologize for any inconvenience. Lou P: The issue is “I WANT TO BUY YOUR SOFTWARE” !!!! That IS my issue.. That means your company receives $$$$$$$, Money, Dollars, Pounds, Yen, Francs, Marks, Bucks, Legal Tender, etc !!!!
