rapidtax.com RapidTax online income tax preparation and filing. Absolute Scam to collect fees for a FREE IRS Service. New York, New York
Used this company to get my refund last year - needed some cash in a pinch to pay some moving expenses so I figured I will sacrifice what would be about $150 of the refund in order to get it in 2-3 days vs. 2-3 weeks with IRS as the company promised. Waited 2,3,4..5 days - nothing... no communication, no deposit.. Called..no answer.. emailed and got a response saying that IRS indicated that there might be some problems with owed taxes and that rapid deposit service loan, for which I paid, was not going to happen!
Called IRS directly and they informed me that there appeared to be no problems with my return, as there should not have been by all means, and that there really isnt an indicator available that early to say that there might be. Emailed company again but all they said was that their bank was unable to approve the "loan" prior to deposit and that I'm out of luck. Lo' and behold, 2 and a half week later I get the full refund by IRS but through Rapid Tax intermediary with minus the "fee" rapidtax.com charged me of about $150...
So basically I got my full refund by IRS without any problems in the same amount of time I would have gotten it by efiling 1040EZ for FREE, but minus the bogus "fees" this service charged me for filing. When I emailed to complain (emails are answered through a "noreply" email address and cannot be followed up so every time you have to re-explain everything) I was told that because I did not get the loan they waived some processing fee of like $25 or so... Absolutely ridiculous!! If you did not provide service you promised you should NOT charge someone for it. I would not recommend this service to ANYONE! Absolute Scam - I would love to inquire about the actual amount of people who get approved for this rapid "loan" especially since there was NO reason I did not get approved as have no backtaxes of any kind, or owe the government any funds.
