I was referred to 1800 Accountant via LegalZoom. I set up an LLC a few months ago and was getting behind on the paperwork. I was called by Legal Zoom and told that they would schedule a consultation with a tax consultant. When I was called by a guy named Michael I was asked if I had received any EIDL or PPL loans via the government to which I agreed. I was instructed about how the tax classification that I wanted to be filed under needed to be filed. I was then told that I had 75 days after filing the LLC, and that it was day 73 and we had to file this right away, lest the IRS would choose the classification for me. I was told that the annual fee of 1,200 could be broken up into installments. Bullshit.
I told him that I could possibly call someone to get the money (despite the fact he knew I had the money after I had foolishly disclosed my loans)within the hour, yet that wasnt good enough! The representative told me that it would be better if I could call him back within the next 20 minutes because he was about to go into a meeting. I eagerly told him I would, got off the phone and immediately blocked him.
He then emailed me three times afterwards.
Not today 1800 Accountants!
As someone who used to work here.. You will be treated as a statistic. You will sold glitter and sunshine so they can get you past your first 30 days so they don't have to deliver the services. After that, you'll be ignored and they'll flex their no cancellation policy.
After starting a new Business we were talked into using them. Cost us $3,400 and they told us we would be completely covered full package. Turns out we only got software to do our own taxes. The personal Bookkeeper they promised us, turns out Bulls#!t. They named their software "Bookkeeper". The Accountant they told us would walk us through our Tax year, also bulls#!t. They have a program called accountant. All you get is an Adviser to walk you thru doing your own data entry on the software. Then when you try to complain they never get specific on emails about their promised services. The whole time they lie. To top it off all their people sound like they are telecommuters, contracting their services to 1800 Accountant. Most of these contractors are the real-deal but they are just part timing and constantly being switched out. Meaning lost documents, unfinished task, and a headache. I had to hire someone inhouse just to process our taxes and deal with these shyster.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR STAY CLEAR OF THE SCAM. Save your money, if you want to do your own taxes get a tax program. If your want someone to do it for you go fine a CPA near you. Both choices will save you time, Money, and a headache.
They lost all my personal information. spent over $2500 to do my taxes. They lost my w2's atleast 6 times! not even joking! They said send em over again we will have someone else go over them... I was like no I want a refund... They cancelled my account and never received a refund. Please keep your identity safe and don't go through these guys. $2500 is a lot of money but losing your identity could be far worse... Stay safe.
These people screwed up my tax return and it costed me thousands of dollars. When I complained, they canceled my subscription and will not refund me. Find someone else. These people are criminals.
I have found it no more "pricey" than a cpa firm. I always get a call back when told I was going to or a call upon my request.
Accountant was knowledgeable and helpful in set up from beginning to end. Answered tough questions this is a time saver for me and gives me the ability to concentrate on what is important, The Customer.
Do not use this service, I run a Non-profit and because of these people we have lost our 501c3, this is due to the fact of the failure of filing my business taxes. Then they had to nerve to still try to charge my CC (twice) for more fees after the service was cancelled. I have filed a complaint with the BB, but they said they were willing to pay only the refund of not filing my taxes and I had to give access to ach information. I asked for all fees to be refunded on top of all the fee occurred by the IRS for their mistake. They have since refused to acknowledged my existence.
Started a new business, On Legal Zoom recommendation we spent an hour on the phone with “Bobby”. Bobby gave us a good ol boy. Look what we can do. I bit based on what was promised. I gave $1,200 with Bobby’s cry everything is covered. After 2 months my credit card was hit for $39.00 a repetitive monthly charge.
Point blank I was lied to and I never gave permission for this charge, Bobby’s good ol boy attitude is now hidden behind his keyboard
I was scammed shame on me!
Please do not use them!
