WARNING – DISORGANIZED, FORGETFUL AND INCOMPETENT
I made an appointment with Choder Howard to do my Corporate Taxes and was hoping to have a great experience based on the reviews but here’s what happened instead….
I arrived for my appointment – Choder fumbled around (think MR. MCGOO) and had now idea who I was (we talked at length on the phone 2 days ago), or about the appointment this morning.
After he finally found my appointment, we sat down and he looked over my previous year’s return.
He said I only have a carry forward loss of $1800 to offset the profit this year.
I said actually, it’s more like $11,000. He studied the return, flipping back and forth like it’s the first one he’s seen.
After 5 minutes, he finally found it and just said “Oh, there it is”
I wanted to grab my P&L and leave immediately.
Taking so long to find such a simple line item on a return screams incompetence.
Next he refuses to do the return since he must charge $1000 and my return is simple.
The idea of adjusting his rates based on the complexity of the job is lost on him.
Me: Okay, can you at least file the extension?
Choder: Yes and begins to print out the form. Oh, there’s no toner in the printer.
Me: Can you file it electronically?
Choder: It’s $25, then gets half way through the process and ups the charge to $75.
He finally ends up e-mailing the form to me to send myself.
I don’t write a ton of reviews, but I do use a lot, so I felt I owed it to the community to warn you guys of totally misleading rating.
Good luck out there!
