Customer Question
I recently cancelled a check...
I recently cancelled a check that I wrote to an accountant after he dropped my returns off to me and I discovered some discrepencys. I called him (left a message with his office help and emailed him to notify him that I was canceling the check based on the fact I felt he had made some serious mistakes on my returns. He deposited the check anyhow and is now threatning to bring criminal charges agaist me. I told him if called me to explain how he came up with his numbers and it was correct. I would be happy to pay my balance. He refuses to answer any questions till he get's paid. He took a whole year to analyse my paperwork, which inturn made my returns extra late.   attepted to contact him several times since droppin off my paperwork last March. Always getting one of the girls in the office telling me they would give him the message. e" it appears that you will owe no taxes, although it still needs to be filed. He led me to believe I would owe nothing. Now I owe $4000 dollars to the IRS for the years 2005&2006. I'm not sure how much of that is penalty and interest.

Thank you for using Just Answer. I am sorry about the problems you are having with your accountant, but he is right. He must return all of your paperwork you gave to him but, he does not have to explain anything about how he fill out your tax return until he get paid. The only recourse you have if the IRS request that he explain the work he did on your tax return.

now I HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER ACCOUTANT TO See if it's done correctly. He never asked me a single question about anything
Tax Professional: Marvin,EA, Enrolled Agent replied 9 years ago
You have a good case for your penalies to be abated for reasonable cause due to you inability to obtain the necessary records from your accountant. I think you need another accountant to complete your return. H & R Block have a good reputation with doing tax return. They will explain all of their work and if you are not satisfied you do not have to pay.

can he press crimimal charges against me for cancelling the check?
Tax Professional: Marvin,EA, Enrolled Agent replied 9 years ago
No, you canceled the check for work not perform, but he can take you to small claim court for nonpayment of service.
