Instant Tax Service / misleading me in status of return

1 Hillman AveYoungstown, OH, United States Review updated:

Ms. Lisa at instant tax service has been giving me the run around or no information at all concerning my amended return for a little over 2 months. she said she put it through in February only for the I.R.S to have no record of my school return. I am very displeased at the level of contempt for my concerns that Ms. Lisa has shown. I have on several different occasions tried to contact her only to be pushed off and not answered. I will never again use instant tax service and will encourage my colleagues to do the same.

    This company was recently shut down by a Federal Court for "fraud and deception". Read the Forbes article here:

    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:

    2) Use IRS Form 14157 to file a written complaint against your tax return preparer:

    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.
