Here is what the review says –
I will never recommend Conkling and Foster CPA to anyone. My husband & I had our taxes done here for the past 3 tax years. We were audited for 1 tax year.After returning back to this CPA for review; they were kind enough to inform us that not only had they screwed up the tax year we were audited but that that they had screwed up the other 2 tax years and that we had to pay the IRS approximately $5000.00.Gee how generous they were to do the paper work for our audit & correct our returns and refused to pay the amount that we owed to the IRS because of their mistakes.They paid the interest & penalties and never offered us a refund for screwing up our taxes much less a discount if they prepared our taxes again.After filing our taxes this year we find out that Conking & Foster lied to us about the mistakes to our face.They covered up their 3 years of errors to say it was “a simple mistake on their part.They honestly had the nerve to send us an appointment card. I am so angry over the way they conduct business.They have no compassion for their clients when they screw up your taxes and cant tell you the truth.This matter is not over yet and will be investigated at a much higher level. I wouldnt have given them any stars.
