Wow, never again will I go through instant tax service. Fraud, scam, robbery, whatever you want to call it...I was charged 700 dollars for tax prep and was told it would only be 250. I don't know how this company stays in business for real. Lesson learned I guess. I think its a shame how the corp offices allow this seeing how their are 100s of complaints and they don't even care. Wow

    This company was recently shut down by a Federal Court for "fraud and deception". Read the Forbes article here: http://onforb.es/1bm9Lyu

    These resources may help taxpayers faced with an unscrupulous "tax relief" company :

    1) Contact the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) and file a complaint. They oversee, and can sanction, Attorneys, CPAs, Enrolled Agents, Registered Tax Return Preparers (RTRP) and others: http://1.usa.gov/18tXSWN

    2) Use IRS Form 14157 to file a written complaint against your tax return preparer: http://1.usa.gov/Qm1rSC

    In all cases, always search the Web in the name of the person AND company you're thinking about hiring. Websites (such as this one) provide invaluable feedback to taxpayers and expose those organizations that don't have their client's best interest in mind. Good luck.
