The neighborhood where I grew up has changed a lot in the past two decades. Most visitors to the area would now call it "the ghetto" or "the 'hood".
Going down the main business street of the neighborhood, I noticed that there was an income tax office on every other block. Just like wealthy neighborhoods might have two Starbucks stores located across the street from each other, this area had multiple Jackson Hewitt offices within eyeshot of each other.
So, why are income tax offices so prevalent in the 'hood? The only reasons that come to mind are very low rent, making it viable for a seasonal business to occupy the same storefront all year, and what could be the popularity of tax refund loans among lower income groups. True?
