It took longer to NOT get my taxes done by Samet & Company than it did to do them myself.
I got a bad feeling from them from the start, enhanced by the fact that they never offered or signed any kind of contract with me (even when I asked about one).
They advised me to do several things that IRS rules explicitly forbid, put numbers on my tax
forms that they could not explain when asked, and failed repeatedly to answer questions I asked.
I finally gave up on them and asked for my original paperwork back in July. I have heard nothing from them since.
At least I haven’t paid them any money, because they certainly didn’t provide me much service.
I finally did my taxes on my own today. It wasn’t fun, but they’re done, and I can actually say that the information provided is, to the best of my knowledge, true and accurate.
