I came across a critical review of Vazquez Tax Service on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘My Tax Returns Were Incorrectly Filed By Vasquez Tax’.
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 Vazquez Tax Service with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
My tax returns were incorrectly filed by Vasquez Tax, whom I trusted as a CPA and therefore paid for their professional services.I brought in my forms (W2, etc) and they did not enter the data from the forms correctly into their computer system.Also I was specified to be a student on the 1040 and Vasquez Tax entered a fraudulent student credit on the 1040.In the end, I was rushed out, asked to sign at the bottom with a refund due to me from the IRS. Later, I was contacted by the IRS indicating I was not due a refund, instead I owed for that year. Of course now I owe interests for the late payment.Upon receiving the form I called Vasquez Tax Services at 5:40PM and was told by the tax preparer that they were closed for the day, but their hours of operation are 9AM-6PM.The next day I went in person, they were rude. While I was there I did notice many other IRS forms(forms that the IRS sends to the tax payer when there are issues with the original filing) laying on the secretaries desk.They had a horrible attitude. They just saw the form and said “Yep, this form is from the IRS, I advise you to pay them. DUH YOU JERK!I wanted them to pay the interest & refund me what they charged me to incorrectly prepare my tax return.They would not let me make my case, they just kept talking over me, never letting me make 1 complete sentence.They refused to refund me their service fee or the interest caused by their negligence.their argument for not paying the interest is that I “have the refund in my bank account already collecting interest, just pay it back — but not true, money is not in the bank, even if it was, no bank gives that much interest to match what the IRS wants.in the end read your tax return before you sign it take it home and read it, review it, then sign or dispute, then return it to your tax guy — oh and AVOID THIS PLACE!
