I wanted to describe in detail the horrible experience I had with Data Accounting Services:
I had the awful experience of dealing with Peggy and Data Accounting Services.
Actually, I ended up calling the authorities to get my tax paperwork back.
She told them she shredded my 3 years worth of tax documents.
I used Peggy for several years. She was always late filing my taxes by at least 6 – 8 months. When I would call to get information about the status of my taxes, she would never answer the phone nor return my calls. This went on for months.
When I finally decided to get my paperwork and go to a certified tax preparer, she wouldn’t surface.
I finally went to her office/home to get my tax information. The police had to be called.
When I finally got copies of my years of tax documents via the internet and many calls, I find out she hadn’t filed my taxes in 2 years!!! No wonder she never answered the phone, emails, and letters.
I did some research on Peggy and Data Accounting Services and she is NOT a certified tax preparer with a verified tax preparer ID number.
Then it dawned upon me: that’s why she has you sign your taxes as if you, yourself, prepared them. She never has you sign as if she prepared your taxes.
I’ve met several people who have dealt with her. Who have all had the same experience of her not filing their taxes in a timely manner, not communicating with her clients, and becoming rude and unprofessional – borderlining volatile and irate. I just wanted my documents back so I could move on…..
Once I finally got things straightened out and professionally explained to me, I was audit and had to pay over $30k.
I had her doing my taxes because she always got me back the most I ever had. Then I got audited. Turns out 3/4 of her clients are audited. She’s on the IRS’s scammers’ radar! Ask the men at Classic Car Wash – they ALL where audit because of her deductions and reputation with the IRS. I ran into one of her clients a few months ago; they said the same thing: Peggy held on to their taxes- didn’t communicate- and when they finally get their documents from her- she hasn’t filed taxes for the year.
Beware!!! Beware of any tax preparer who has you sign as if you prepared your own taxes! Beware!! Beware of Peggy!! The majority of her clients are audited because of her false exaggerations and fraudulent additions. Get the largest amount now…pay severely later. She’s unprofessional and unreliable. She’s a fraud!! A mean, angry fraud!
