Law Firm of Kevin D. Judd

I appreciate your advocacy about this issue and could not agree more with calling the demise of these high-interest loans as “an appropriate death.” While there will always be taxpayers who want to receive their refunds as soon as possible, these loans shamelessly take advantage of the desperate situations of struggling or low-income families. It is astonishing to read that more than 12 million people took out these anticipation loans to the tune of more than $1 billion in fees, but it is encouraging to see that this practice is on its way out.
