The Tax Club / Fraudulent sales practices

1 NY, United States Review updated:

We were steered to the tax club through Stores Online to set up our on line business as a Corp. They set you up with a series of appointments which we were led to beleive would be tax related. They were all sales calls for various services provided under the company called The Manhattan Professiaonal Group. During the third phone call to sell services we declined because we could not afford anymore services. They used fraudulent statements to convince us how we would be able to pay for the services through our tax return refunds. So we purchsed the other services offered.
The first return they did for us had us owing a large amount the second try was a little better. We finally took it to a local firm and they doubled our refund.
The Tax Clubs representative Naressa Ourderk admitted the false statements were made but when the BBB asked for a copy of it and the policy that supposedly protected the company from having to give refunds they conveniently couldn't locate the call transcripts.
We have received less than half the funds we paid them. Do to fraud nd poor services we feel we should be given a full refund.

    Everyone...think about it!! You are using a business affiliated with others - of course they are going to try and sell you something else. I have had the same calls and just said no!!...you don't need to buy anything else...The club itself is great. Their advice on structuring my company and forming my S Corp as well as my LLC's has been invaluable. You feel like it is a scam because they are trying to sell you something - but if you are using them in the first place than you are probably a business owner and isn't selling what you do everyday. Take it easy and do some research - go pay your CPA $325 an hour so he can tell you nothing...

    Wait for an audit than try and contact your CPA. He'll probably tell you to get your lawyer and than the both of them can collect the big bucks while you sit and wait for answers...keep being skeptical-you can always just sit there and do nothing
