If you value your money or your time, steer clear of The Sunderland Group as a CPA for either your personal finances or small business (the two areas I’ve worked with him on). He’s actually a likable guy – but a terrible accountant.
Specifically, it”s April 4th and I’ve been waiting to hear when he’d have my small company’s taxes finished, as well as my joint return with my wife.
He then tells me in an irritated tone that we’ll have to file an extension (i.e. not file our taxes on time).
I told him that was unacceptable because I have investors counting on him to get our taxes done on time.
To make a long story short, he then got upset and REFUSED to even complete the returns he had already started!
On April 4th. Totally unprofessional and unbelievable.
So April 15th is less than 2 weeks away, and my family is basically screwed because of Mark Sunderland (and so is my small business and my investors).
Again – if you value your time or money, stay away from this firm and find a CPA who actually cares about their clients and takes some responsibility for the impact they have on their clients’ lives.
