American Tax Relief / Withdrawal of 8,000 dollars without authorization
After authorizing this company the initial payment of 3, 900 dollars to resolve my tax problem, a Mr. John Buckner contacted me again to inform me of a second company named as Tax Group would be handling my file and an additional 8, 000 dollars would be required for their services. Despite my verbal insistence that I did not wish to have a second company prepare my taxes and informing Mr. Buckner of my wish to get the taxes prepared locally, I was led to believe American Tax Relief was a separate company by the customer services representative, Edna Silva, and Tax Group receives clients from American Tax Relief. Based on this, Edna said she would need an IRS form 8821, to obtain my tax info. This form has no authorization or account information for withdrawal for payment of any kind. However, after my statement to Mr. Buckner at the close of business on Friday, Sept. 12, 2008, the amount of 8, 000 dollars was withdrawn by Tax Group, on Sunday at 11.32 pm.
