If they are screwing your mind screw theirs.
this the exact reason I called them today...I asked for waiver and in the end I asked some discount...and they r like,nope..u no other way...just pay in full else colelction agency....

AICPA stands for American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Search for AICPA in your state online and you will get the information as to where they are located and how to contact them.

Default Call from Tax Guy

Dear Friend

It seems you ask them to preparer the tax return and they did the job and send you a tax return. Once you received the papers you were not ready to pay the fees because you might be not happy with the refund etc.

If they did some mistake then you can say and contact AICPA and other agencies for help.

My friend this is a service sector and you avail services and you need to pay fees. Unless you inform in advance that pl do not process my taxes as it is taking a time. Still they are asking then you can approch to BBB

How do I know whether they are working on my file or not when they crossed thier promised time of 2 weeks from the date I contacted them?

What made them to wait for one year and send me this Intimdating mail asking me to pay otherwise they r gonna go for Collection Agency?

I hope you read all my posts from the begining:

I appreciate your feedback and you being a CPA, I think you can provide answers to the following questions from your end.I just want o understand what made them to send this threating email to me other than hunt for money?

1) Did I sign anywhere that Iím for sure will be preparing my taxes with them if not I have to pay entire payment?

2) Did they informed me in email or in regular mail asking me to send back the package if Iím NOT using it?

3) How would I know that those guys are still working on it when it is moving into mid of March?

4) Why should I wait until last minute for your tax preparation stuff?

5) Did they gave any estimate about my returns before preparing finally? Even in HR Block I have an option that I can walk away without paying a penny to them if I donít like way they prepared my taxes and the amounts I receive/owe from/to IRS.



I even faxed all of those documents they sent me on Friday and I emailed billing department about the same explaining all this but till now I did not find any relpy.

As a CPA, I'm surprised to read about this "shopping around" of the tax refund. You file the return based on the rules enacted by Congress in the Internal Revenue Code and the corresponding Regulations. The IRS helps you out by issuing the instructions. If you want an estimate of your refund, just get Turbo Tax and figure it out yourself. It's clear that you hired the CPA to provide you with a service when you initially contacted him and sent all your documents.

Unless your return is extremely complex or you are making tons of money and you do not have time for these small tax matters, do your own taxes. Initially it is going to be a bit confusing, but as you keep up, it becomes a habit.

If you are really interested in learning all tax rules, participate as a vlounteer to file taxes for low income people. The training is provided free by IRS through AARP or local country Government.

And spend the money you would have spent on the tax return preparation on your spouse and children for a nice party !!
