My accountant totally screwed me over last year—filing extensions, then filing late, not responding to my emails, and resulted in me accruing late fee penalties. He did write a letter requesting IRS forgiveness for the late fee etc about 3-4 months ago and we’re waiting for a response.

He just called asking if I filed my 2022 taxes. I already did myself rather than go through last year’s debacle. When I asked if there was an IRA update about any refunds from last year he got upset and (contd)

Haha cliffhanger

Jk, just debating what to reveal

He messed up but you paid fees. Politeness would dictate that he pay the fees. Kind of impolite of him.

like

I completely agree

He should reimburse you for the fees. He dropped the ball here. You could potentially sue him for malpractice, but maybe not worth it for a couple thousand.

Yes, I considered suing because I was upset but didn’t want to pay for legal fees

Said ‘I told you, just wait!’ He’s presumably upset I’ll no longer work with him.

I already got this year’s refund.

This CPA’s been unprofessional, sometimes rude, and unresponsive multiple times throughout my entire experience last year and I only worked with him because a family member did too. He also cost me a couple thousand in penalties.

What would you do in this situation?

@SA1, how would you send him a bill? I considered taking him to a small claims court too but figured I’d spend more in my time and lawyer fees than the money I lost :(

@A1, given his track record, I wonder if he would realize that’s a criminal offense. I’m assuming my situation is pretty unique—I doubt this happens with all of his clients—so he’ll probably know I posted the review

Leave bad reviews & if it’s really bad, file a complaint with your state authorities

Google is your best friend. Type “file a complaint about a CPA + your state name”. Also consider Yelp, BBB, etc.

Also he just called you today to get your business!? Is he trying to make another late filing?

Haha I was speechless at how shameless he was. And when I said I’d already filed my taxes and asked about last year’s taxes, he had the gall to sound impatient that I asked
