Since doing your taxes in real life is so much fun, it makes sense that H&R Block would setup shop in the online world of Second Life. I mean, presidential candidate John Edwards set up shop in Second Life and that worked out so well ! I should temper my skepticism because Second Life is quite popular (it has to be for a reason) and I’ve never played Second Life so I should scoff that which I’ve never tried before. I just think its commercialism is too transparent and the fact that it’s turning out to be all the rage for companies to build up a virtual presence there in order to market their products.
Now, what do you get if you visit H&R Block in Second Life? You can get free tax advice when you’re filling out your taxes in real life.
