GAAP Accounting and Tax Services Inc / No response and no copy of tax return

New York, NY, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I am not able to get hold of Mr.Iqbal Haqim of GAAP Accounting and Tax Services Inc, who filed
my tax returns for the yar 2007. I have been trying for last two months, calling, emailing and faxing without any success. I want to get hold of my copy of tax return and do not know how to reach him.
Some of the telephone numbers listed on the web site are de-listed (www.taxonfax.com "Contacts" page)

And postal mails sent to some of the addresses listed on the "Contacts" page are returned.

I have no idea how to reach him. I appreciate if any soul has any suggestions.

GAAP accounting and tax services are the best you get good refunds without any issues. Refund is more important than copy, as you can get copy from IRS also by just giving one call to them.

GAAP Accounting is the most horrible tax consultants, They lie all the time, screw up with your tax returns. Will not provide you any papers whatsover and will be absolutely untraceable after April 15th. Been there, done that with them for past 5 years and speaking based on personal experience. Mr. Iqbal is a sweet talker but lies all the time. His standard answers are ... your papers are ready, will call you up tonight. Working on your case only etc... etc ...

I would personally advice people to avoid them, even if they claim to get higher tax returns dont torcher yourself for few extra dollar, if you get audited ... they wont stand behdind you, you cant even trace them. I had few friends from whom they said they have filed taxes, but turns out they didnt.

I am sure the positive post from Venket above is from Mr. Iqbal himself or his sons :-)

I am a victim of gaap tax services too. I complained to BBB (better business bureau)and IRS(3949a form), and filed a dispute with the my credit card charges. all in all it took me an hour. The next day I got a refund of the amount.

My case, They said they have filed a complete false tax filings and now i cant contact them anymore; And I called IRS and realized they never filed.
Dont feel like you can do nothing; yes you can do something about them.
Just to inform you IRS has a tax fraud/abusive tax preparer complaint form 3949a, a 1 page form which is easy to fill out;

I am filing a complaint 3949 with the irs against GAAP. my ultimate goal is to take them of the streets.

If you have some time ; you can file a complaint too; they are the no.1 tax fraud services inc in usa; they perfectly fit the tax fraud description by IRS.
they deserve it.

Guys, please note that the person raghuveer here who seems to have a soft corner for GAAP might actually be working for them. The text put in his comment is exactly the same as some other girl call Sneha who has given positive reviews about them in another chain on https://www.complaintsboard.com - https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/gaap-c71325.html

This is ridiculous. In fact when I had talked to Hakim and told him about these reviews on the site, in his defense he said - "They are HSBC guys trying to defame me" - HA!!! As if they don't have anything better to do.

Hey Venkata, I am on the same boat as you. I filed around apr 12 and waited for 5 weeks.

I called IRS just to make sure if they have filed or not... the answer from IRS - nothing under that SSN. Not even one reject as well...

Well that great guy charged me $400 and it already went through my credit card. I immediately called my credit card company and said that charge was not authorized by me. So I filed a dispute !!!

Hopefully I get a refund.

You can try doing the same !

Good Luck

I am in the same Boat. I filed for the first time in USA. I did not have ITIN for my spouse and kid. He suggested that he will file as Single initially and then apply for ITIN and tax Amendment together later. I agreed. He filed for single and I got my refund but after that he is untraceable. I call him everyday two times on the all the numbers available on www.taxonfax.com but he never responds. His voice mail is full. My ITIN application and filing of Tax Amendment is still pending.

HE IS A FRAUD. I dont know what people achieve by doing business like this ?

I have disputed the charges with my credit card company. Lets see what happens.

But, I will ask everyone to keep away from him.

Anyone who is planning to approach Mr. Iqbal for Tax returns filing, keep in mind that he will be untraceable after 15th April. After 3 months long wait, I get to know from IRS that my Tax returns got rejected because he filled my last name wrongly. I am trying to trace him since then, and had been unsucessful so far.

I have been filing with Gaap for the last 3 years and totally disagree with comments on them . They are in business for a long time and if they were cheats would have been in trouble long back. Iqbal Hakim is an internationaaly renowned auditor who picked up the core 9/11 financing and terrorist financing at HSBC. He is highly rated by international community ( google search him). He comes from a very rich family and his grandfather owned the Famous Cine Studio in Bombay and was a big film producer. Iqbal himself was in UAE for 20 years in various senior positions. He is a man of principles and could have made millions but choose to write two books against the UAE and HSBC.

We are a group of IT professionals working at TCS who have been filing our tax retuns with Gaap and are satisfied with their services. We strongly recommend them infact majority of TCS staff use their services every year and are their repeat clients

All the adverse comments are simply made to give a bad image of GAAP. Let me analyse them

A guy called Srini comments that he did not receive a copy of his tax retutn - All he had to do is call IRS and request a copy of hie TAX Return. IRS in less than 10 minutes would have faxed him and mailed him an OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT, FREE OF CHARGE.

Even H&R Block which files for 35% of tax returns are closed after tax season. Tax Business is seasonal and one should understand that but GAAP can be reached through emails and appointments after tax season at their NY office.

One person says he is filling for the past 5 years and fed up from GAAP's service - Then why is he filing with them if they are bad. Other says that a fraud complaint has been filed with all authorities, if that was true GAAP would not have been in business.

Applying for tax ID is a not done through E filing but a manual one which takes atleast ONE MONTH. A TAx ID is like an SSN and IRS determines whether a person qualifies for getting an ITIN or not. It is not automatically granted so if you have not received your ITIN or received it late, you cant blame GAAP for it.

Having known them for 5+ years I stongly recommend them and compare them with other accountants.

There is a good old Indian Song - Kutch to log Kahenge, Logo ka kaam hai Kahena. Chodo Bekar ki bato mein beet na jaye rehana. My experince with Gaap since coming to USA in 2005 is very good

The last negative comment was 7 days back and the one before that was some 200 days old (as of today). All of a sudden a surge in good reviews that too at a time when GAAP wants clients. Hmm... Point to ponder
