Description of service

I started a new consulting business and incurred a lot of expenses. But at the same time, I was also working a full-time and a part-time job. Much of my income was from employment versus business. Anyway, my parents have a clothing subcontracting business and insisted that I use their accountant. I was hesitant because I doubt that he knew how to do accounting. But I didn't know anyone so I gave them all my receipts and W2s. When the tax returns were ready for me to sign, I was furious. He completely disregarded all my expenses and reported taxes based on my employment income and said that I owed taxes. My parents paid the accountant but the accountant's services was definitely not worth it.

Review of Service

Quick turnaround. Poor communication. The accountant did not listen to my needs. Instead, he said to my parents that I was in the "bullsh**" business because I was younger and I had another job and was going to school. I fired that guy and redid my taxes and owed nothing to the government.


Shop around for a good accountant who knows what you need and understands how to prepare the forms that are pertinent to your business or financial situation. And don't give in and settle for someone who charges less because when you get audited, you are the one on the hook, not the accountant.
