A GAO report noted that many used car dealers will do your taxes (and apply your refund as a down payment to the purchase of a car) and there's a shoe store that will give you a free pair of shoes with every tax return they prepare. Pawn shops are also big on tax preparation.
And this morning, I encountered new heights in the full service/one-stop shopping concept.
Here are excerpts from an exchange on a discussion forum for users of professional tax software:
Tax Pro 1: Where are you sending your customers with large refund checks to have them cashed? ....
Tax Pro 2: We do it ourselves charge 2%. ...
Tax Pro 3: I didn't know that an Income Tax Preparation Firm was allowed to cash client's checks.
Tax Pro 4: We have a check cashing license. We are also a liquor store.
