Had my taxes done by Hacker Accounting for a few years. Our accountant claimed I was a military veteran and then I was audited by the state and owed thousands of dollars.
This was claimed for more than one year so either the accountant was not preparing a new return each year and just using the same one with the same errors or was purposely claiming an incorrect deduction to try to get me a better return.
Either way, I find it deplorable that a supposedly respected firm wouldn’t double check tax forms to find this problem and do it for more than one year.
Beware – if you have to look over your accountant’s work as much as I should have here – you’re much better off doing your own taxes.
