Tax refunds for past three years brought refunds with an adviser.

Customer Question

Tax refunds for past three years brought refunds with an adviser. But they could not explain why. Changed to Famous adviser service. Reviews found mistakes with penalties. Should I consider a case against the former service?

Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Good morning. Yes.....if your former service made mistakes which resulted in penalties and/or interest, then you would have a cause of action against the service for negligence. Any statute of limitations would not begin until you discovered these errors. Although you would not be entitled to recover for taxes owed as you would have owed these anyway, you would not have incurred the penalties and interest had they not made a mistake. Thus, your former service is liable for these and if they do not pay you voluntarily, file suit against them to force payment.
