Jackson Hewitt / scam
This complaint against Jackson Hewitt Tax Service is not new, but ongoing ever since our 2005 and 2006 Federal and State Income Tax was wrongfully prepared. For 2005 I had to pay $1, 273.51 for overpayment of Federal Income Tax. For 2006 I had to pay $1, 609.60 for overpayment of South Carolina State Income Tax. That totals $2883.11 I had to pay out of pocket for ridiculous mistakes made by two incompetent tax preparers employed by Jackson Hewitt.
Ms. Kovolenko has taken some responsibility and reimbursed us for a substantial amount of the tax overpayment, but only several hundred dollars more than I have had to pay. The $1, 609.60 overpayment from the South Carolina State Tax is money I never received. The entire amount ($2, 231.00) was issued to Loris Hospital in South Carolina for billing quite a few years ago for services my wife’s ex-husband failed to pay. I can live with that fact, but to have to pay back money I didn’t receive due to a mistake Jackson Hewitt made is not acceptable. Had the state income tax been prepared correctly I would not have had to pay $1, 609.60 I never had or was supposed to have. Since beginning this letter of complaint I have received another notice from the South Carolina Department of Revenue that I additionally owe $311.00 for the year of 2005.
Obviously Jackson Hewitt Tax Service and/or Ms. Kovolenko has decided that taking 50% responsibility for their mistakes is satisfactory and I should be content with the decision. I am not. If Jackson Hewitt was the reputable company they claim to be this calamity would be totally rectified.
