Kasperek & Co. Accountants had provided our company’s annual tax preparation, bookkeeping & reconciliation and business/personal tax return filings for 4 years. For 2019, they prepared the business return with six (6) miscategorized transactions with errors totaling $122,225, which created highly overstated LLC net income, resulting in a massive personal tax liability, including penalties and interest.

We contacted John Kasperek, informing him that our business was engaging a tax specialist firm to investigate the reported large personal tax liability. The owner, John Kasperek, became irate, rude, and completely unprofessional in his email response, including offensive language unbecoming of a trusted tax professional.  Quote, "Fri, Apr 2, 1:25 PM <johnjkasperek@kasperek> I AM DISAPPOINTED AND INSULTED THAT YOU HAVE BROUGHT ANOTHER FIRM INVOLVED. WHAT THE F—CK YOU THINK THEY ARE GOING TO FIND? IT WILL BE FOR NOUGHT!!! -JK"

Only it was not for naught.  The specialist tax firm confirmed (6) miscategorized revenue vs. expense errors and the evidence was forwarded to Kasperek & Co. for correction and amended filing. The owner dodged requests for weeks until his recent outright refusal to correct the errors. He went so far as to send an invoice for filing a personal tax return extension, then tried to say that because we hadn't paid him for that yet (literally just filing an extension) that he wouldn't consider any further work (leverage? blackmail?) on the original business taxes that were error-riddled.

Then, if it could not get more insulting, he attempted to manipulate a hold harmless agreement from us so we couldn't legally pursue him or his firm any longer, in exchange for him dropping a tiny invoice for work that couldn't even have been completed since the personal tax return was subject to a final/completed business return!

In summary, we have lost $4300.00 for an incomplete, error-filled business tax return.  Another, more competent and professional firm must be hired to correct and refile at additional expenses and late penalties. Kasperek Co. and the owner have violated AICPA Standards (notably No.2.3b, 2.3c, and 2.6), as well as violated his duty to maintain an appropriate level of professional care, skill, diligence, and public trust, as required by the FASB. In addition to the recommendation to NEVER work with John Kasperek or his firm, they need to be investigated for violations, professionally reprimanded, censured or even potentially stripped of their license.
