How do the poor stay perpetually poor?

http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/20/pf/taxes/walmart-tax-refund/index.html

They cash their tax refund checks at a place they can spend it all on crap!

Just like those casinos that cash paychecks on site.

ETA: Revised for clarity of sarcasm.

It's completely Wal*Mart's fault that people have no clue how to manage their money.

Yeah, allowing the "poor" to save money on goods and services should be against the law.

I used to hate wal mart until they withstood pressure from the prez himself to stop selling guns and ammo.

They also did not gouge on ammo.

The real travesty is the raping that tax preparers give to stupid people.

My mom does taxes for a big name place. She charges people ridiculous money to do simple taxes. Even if people are too dumb to do it themselves, they could do turbotax for way cheaper. But nope, gotta have a pro fill out that 1040EZ.

In related news, Dave Ramsey reports that his "Use Your Tax Refund Check To Purchase The Total Money Makeover" program has been a complete failure...

It is better than them going to a payday loan business and paying 10% to have the damn thing cashed.

Not seeing anything wrong with this OP.

From what I heard on the radio they are charging seven bucks for the service and give cash to the client once the gov releases the funds.

To some, Walmart is always the debil, no matter what they do.

Business gonna business.

It's brilliant actually, pure brilliant poor making poor decisions leading to being poor raping perfection.

It's like Amazon - they keep making it so easy to give them my money that I keep giving it to them.

There are places around here that will do a rapid refund in November or December.
I guess they base it off the previous filing if they have the same job.

I read a few months ago that we wouldn't get refunds until October - has that changed?

yeah, walmart could give each person cashing a check $1 on top of the original check's value and they'd still be "the debil"

That probably only applies to people that actually paid taxes.
