Company is a ripoff-they had Tax Preparers doing taxes that did not have license TPIN# from IRS which is a requirement. In a training session by the company when asked that question company claimed there was a freeze on TPIN# being issued by IRS. However IRS states this was temporary thing. The company was not suppose to have tax preparers doing taxes without TPIN# and paying them compensation for filling out returns of taxpayers.

Company had signs for Tax Preparers to place in the community and at colleges to get business however that was misleading the public advertising about the refund you can get for filing one child. Or advertsing the college students return will be $1000 when in fact they were getting less back after company overcharged preparation fees.

Company filed tax returns without Clients agreeing to their service and fees. Fees for too high to make money with the company. They overcharged the Taxpayers.  Also it is a mobile service with no office to conduct business or to meet a Client.

Company claimed to be in business for several years when in fact they were changing the company name constantly.There is no history of the company for six years as they claimed to their Contractors. Location of business was at first in hotel located in College Park, GA and remained there throughout most of tax season. Company only become incorporated in March, 2012 and now shows business address on 17th St in Atlanta,GA. However that was only since March. Returns for taxpayers at first showed address on Sylan road that is a residental home that is now vacant. However recent tax returns have a P.O. Box address on Client's copy.

 Anyone working for them can be subject to company taking additional fees out of their checks without any explanation. Email address and street address listed on their application for employment has www.taxchainpro.com. However this had to be a previous name they worked under and street address listed was a foreclosed property.

They claim that if you become a Franchise holder with their company that they will give you leads, provide training, debts cards for Clients-this is a lie! Training was 3 hr. total. Debit cards would not work. And their Trainer Adrienne had an attitude when you asked her questions.  You had to call numerous times to get a call back.

Owners live in another country-so when tax season is over they return to Belize and Puerto Rico.  You cannot get them on the phone they avoid calls.They were unprofessional when speaking with Tax Preparers' clients.

 And Clients had to beg or threaten them to get their  tax return checks mailed to them. Stay away from this company.....

CAN YOU SAY FRAUD

AUTHOR: Kee - ()

 I HAD MY TAXES PREPARED IN FEB 2013.  I LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE SO MY TAXES WERE PROCESS VIA EMAIL AND FAX.  I DECIDED TO HAVE MY RETURN PUT ON A PRE PAID CARD.  I WAS TOLD THE CARD WOULD BE MAILED TO ME BEFORE IRS SENT THE MONEY TO THERE BANKS AND THIER BANK WOULD RELEASE IT TO PRE-PAID CARD.  COUPLE OF DAYS WENT BY AND STILL NO CARD.  I CALLED AND THEY SAID THEY SENT IT TO THE WRONG ADDRESS AND IT WAS RETURNED TO THEM.  SO I THEN TOLD THEM JUST PUT IT IN MY BANK ACCOUNT.  THEN TAXAMIZE SAID THEY WOULD RELEASE A PORTION OF THE MONEY TO MY BANK BUT THE REST HAD TO BE VERIFIED BECAUSE SOME DOCUMENTS WERE MISSING( WHICH TOTALLY DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME).  A PORTION WAS RELEASED TO MY ACCOUNT.  THEN ADDITIONAL FORMS WERE COMPLETED.  I WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT HADN'T RECIEVED THEIR REFUNDS YET.  THE COMPANY DECIDED TO RELEASE THE CHECKS INORDER BY LAST NAME FROM MAY 2013- AUG 2013.  I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE THE REST OF MY RETURN.  I CAN'T GET ANYONE TO RETURN MY CALLS OR EMAILS.  I CONTACTED THE FRANCHISE OWNER VIA EMAILS AND FILED A COMPLAINT. SHE RESPONSED TO MY EMAIL ABOUT A MONTH AGO SAYING SHE WAS FIXING THE PROBLEM AND WILL BE SENDING ME MY REFUND AND A 500 GIFT CARD FOR MY INCONVENIENCE.  I NEVER HEARD ANYTHING BACK AFTER NUMEROUS ATTEMPTS THROUGH EMAILS.  I CALLED STATES ATTORNEY TO FILE A REPORT.  WWW.CONSUMER.GA.GOV . 

I DID A LITTLE MORE RESEARCH AND CALLED THE BANK ADVENT FINANICAL SERVICE.  THEY TOLD ME THEY RELEASED THE FUNDS TO A PRE PAID CARD IN MARCH.  THEY CHECKED THE CARD AND IT HAD A ZERO BALANCE.  IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE TAX PREPARER OR MANAGER OR BOTH NEVER MAILED ME THE CARD.  THEY WAITED UNITL THE BANK RELEASED THE MONEY TO THE CARD AND WITHDREW EVERYTHING AT ONCE.  THEY GOT TIRED OF ME CALLING ABOUT MY MONEY.  THEY PAID ME A PORTION OF MY MONEY TO GET ME TO STOP CALLING BUT THAT DIDN'T WORK.  I AM NOT GIVING UP ON THIS AND IF I WERE YOU READING THIS I WOULDN'T EITHER.  SO CONTACT THE STATE ATTORNEY WHERE THE COMPANY IS AND ALSO CALL THE BANK ADVENT FINANCIAL AND PUT IN A CLAIM.  WE AS CONSUMERS SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF YOU HAVE RIGHTS.

Company has not delivered

AUTHOR: Douglasvillemisery - (U.S.A.)

This company has not delivered on any of their promises. There has been no changes on original complaint filed. Company claimed to give Tax Preparers trip to Bahamas for doing a certain number of returns. they never came through on their advertisement. Beware when doing business with this company. They will rip you off and have Clients and Tax Preparers do business with them and not stadn good on their promises.

It is a shame the company entices people to do business with them and flake out. Andre Amos Crooks does not use his last name and I see why=Crooks indicates exactly what they are. Talk to the many people involved with them and you will have quiet a few of them upset about the way they handle business. but it is fine cause am filing a lawsuit against them demanding my money back for misleading the public and preparers thinking they were doing business with a reputable company. Stay away from them!

IRS Delayed My Return Not Taxamize

AUTHOR: Jennifer - (United States of America)

I want to make a correction about my review about Taxamize. I was extremely upset and disgruntle with this company, because I faulted Taxamize for the delay of my tax refund. I did not know what else to do exept make a Rip-Off Report, but I later found out that the IRS had started to carefully evaluate tax returns midway through the season. 

The IRS delayed the disbursal of returns due to stricter policies. I want to apologize if I have cuased this company any problems because of my momentary anger.

I have received my tax return and was satisfied with the result. I was upset about it coming later than expected, but I now realize after speaking to the IRS, that tax preparation companies cannot control the review time of returns. 

I will make sure to thoroughly check up on the status of delayed returns with the IRS before jumping to conclusions and making faulty claims about tax firms. I hope this clears up any misunderstandings. 

Thanks
