"
did a nice job in the beginning of working together and as far as I can tell is a decent accountant. Unfortunately, he pulled an absolute" Houdini on me. I had double paid FICA taxes associated with a corporate relocation which we had claimed back on my federal return. Ultimately the IRS did not agree with the adjustment (which I hear is not uncommon) and began sending me letters.
me to believe he was taking care of it, but never was. Shame on me for not demanding copies of the correspondence. The IRS letters got increasingly threatening and my pleasto
got correspondingly more urgent. Ultimately, the IRS but a
on a bank account and took the money plus penalties and interest. In his last correspondence
told me this matter had his full attention and he would be in touch by the end of the week. That was in December 2014 and I still have heard nothing. Needless to say, I have a new accountant that is helping me sort this miserable mess.

"Everyone should avoid this establishment - if you
’t, you could be paying thousands in taxes for which you are not responsible. I" had three issues with
Tax Services: 1)
nearly cost me $12,000 by misinterpreting my eligibility for a tax credit. I have confirmed with a CPA and two other tax preparers that he was wrong. The CPA laughed and said his mistake looks like incompetence. 2) After our initial meeting,
reached out to me to find for him information about another tax credit for which I am eligible, saying he couldn't find it because he "hadn't done one in years." The credit has only been around for two years. Is he incapable of remembering tax related information for a year or two? Or, did he misrepresent himself in trying to appear more knowledgeable than he is by falsely stating he has done such credits in the past? Either way, he is incapable of finding the most blatant tax information himself. It took me about a minute to find the information on the IRS website. I politely sent him the information and allowed him to continue the return. 3) After he completed the return and informed me I would be getting nothing back, I told him I could not accept the tax form he prepared for me for I would be throwing away thousands of dollars. He then again asked me to do his job for him to investigate the credit and send him the information. After I refused, he became rude and unprofessional. I encourage anyone thinking of using this company's services to go elsewhere. I can't imagine how much of his clients' money he wastes every year without their knowledge.

Filing your own taxes? Avoid these 5 mistakes

Before you hit send on your 2013 tax filing, make sure you've considered these common mistakes Angie's List experts routinely see individuals make.

Accountants

When it comes to doing your taxes and finances, one of the biggest questions that often comes up is whether you should hire an accountant or just handle the matter yourself. Although accountants can be pricey, they often provide many benefits and protections that you can't get by doing the books yourself.

There are more and more ways to file your taxes, so speak with your accountant and find out what filing method will be most beneficial to you. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

This is the second year we have had
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
! prepare our state and federal taxes. My wife and I completed a short sale on a home in late 2013.
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
guided us through the process and submitted the proper documentation to the IRS.
My wife and I met
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
in person. It was very laid back but very professional. Again, answered all of our questions and even offered some advice for the future.
Even though my wife and I do not typically have difficult tax returns that need to be prepared, we will be using his services in the future for the peace of mind.

He is great. He is dependable. He is extremely knowledgeable. He has given us advice about investments that have been extremely helpful and right on target. We are in a great financial position because of his advice. He has helped us through our retirement and made sure that we’re invested properly. He is easy to work with.

We had what - for us - was an unusual tax filing need in 2014 and I wanted a professional - an EA, not just an accountant - to ensure our taxes were handled correctly. I'll keep the specifics of the filings private, but I will say that
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
did exactly what she said she'd do, when she said she'd do it. And the timeliness of response from the IRS was exactly as
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
predicted. Clearly experienced, knowledgeable and realistic feedback from her. For my 2014 taxes in 2015, we don't need a professional, so I'm going back to TurboTax this year for cost reasons. But if I run into anything complicated in the future, I'll be looking to
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
for assistance again.

We brought our business and personal tax work to Landmark about three years ago and instantly I could tell this was going to be "our company". We worked with
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
on a long term tax plan as well as looking at the past errors of our previous accountant (many) and
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
was wonderful to work with. He answered all of my questions (many, many, many) and was understanding of where we are and where we want to be in the future. His planning and business acumen is rare and something that keeps me close to him when I am looking at new businesses or acquiring new property.
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
is my financial "right hand" and we will be with him as long as he is in business. I really cannot share details of the past things we have reviewed, but trust me when we go to make a move we also engage Landmark. The best advice I received growing up from my
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
was "contact a professional" but with Landmark and
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
it is so much more than just that. We are truly blessed to have crossed paths and conducted business with Landmark.

Everyone at this location was extremely friendly. My tax preparer,
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
was courteous, professional and knowledgeable. I was very grateful for her help as my return was detailed but she was always patient with my many questions. I thought the tax prep fee was a little high, but it was worth it. I will definitely use their service again.

I thought the online review and complaint process was not extremely clear, did not fit my needs. I thought by putting a negative review online, someone at
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
would care. I got a reference number on two occasions and was not contacted. No one followed up with me. I thought
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
would review the requests and negative feedback I gave. If a person read that they would know to contact me with the proper steps to resolve this particular scenario.
Herkimer Accountants Provider Name Locked
in general is not a bad company. This particular process is what I am not happy with. My grade reflects this process and not the entire company.
