Desperate Company Sears Teams with Desperate Company H&R Block to Offer Desperate People Free Tax Prep Services

Okay so maybe Sears isn't "desperate" but they did announce 100+ would be closed this year and maybe H&R Block isn't "desperate" but they no longer offer refund anticipation loans. Couple that with the news that Jackson Hewitt has 2,800 tax prep kiosks in Walmart stores, one might conclude that the brain trusts at Sears and H&R Block are in need of some good ideas:

Retail giant Sears is partnering with H&R Block this tax season, offering free federal 1040EZ tax filing online and in stores through Feb. 29. The two companies have created a Web page, www.Sears.com/hrblock, where consumers can prepare and file federal and state tax returns online. They can also visit H&R Block offices in more than 500 Sears stores nationwide to file their taxes.

I don't know about you all, but the thought of sitting in a H&R Block at your local Sears is not a pleasant one. That is unless Bob Vila, the handy hipster, was assisting you.
