DAVE TAX – Legit or Scam?

I came across a critical review of DAVE TAX on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘I Was Treated’.

DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against DAVE TAX with a pinch of salt.

Here is what the review says –


Customer service is important, even if you are a successful business. I used Dave Tax a few years back.I have always done my own taxes but as I had a number of significant life changes, I wanted an expert to handle them.Dave and I sat down and in less than 60 minutes and $1,000 my taxes were done. It was worth it.The last few years I went back to doing my own taxes – takes me about 30 to 45 minutes.This year my return is going to be more complicated so I called Dave Tax and was treated rudely.Bottom-line, Dave Tax did not want my business. I was interrogated and chastised by him for not using him every year.It would have been nice to hear: “Welcome back”. I understand there is more work involved for Dave Tax but that is why he quoted me $1,250 along with saying “I don’t know if you want to pay that much.” Cost is not the issue.I enjoy doing my taxes – I am a numbers guy. This year I wanted to hire an expert (Dave Tax) to help me out.When a business has such a rude attitude, I wouldn’t use them if their service was free.I guess Dave Tax is making so much money that he doesn’t need my business.I am still in shock with how I was treated.
