So what did you all do? I have been audited for 2009 as well so I need some advice on what to do, who to contact?
Beware!!! I'm a CPA and I recently took on a new client, a couple who received a notice from the IRS that they owed $10,000+ due to errors and disallowed deductions and credits on their original return. Of course Heath did not try to help them in the least, would not return their calls. Heath obviously couldn't care less. The couple was angry, scared, disgusted and humiliated, allowing Heath to prepare and efile a return with obvious false information and numbers. There were seven errors and two specific irregularities that had to be corrected. Their returns were amended and we got the balance down to $6,000+ but they feel violated and abused while understanding they are the ones ultimately responsible for their tax return. Beware!!!
Liars and Cheaters – DO NOT USE THIS TAX PLACE!!! They throw in all kinds of fluff that cause red flags with the IRS and get you audited. I'm from Cartersville and know the inside scoop on what really happened to his business when it got raided by the IRS in 2009. Ever since then they have been under a microscope and about 30-40% of their customers get audited. They cheat and lie to your face and then when the IRS comes after you Heath's is no where to be found. Please do yourself a favor and do not use their business.
LIAR LIAR LIAR – I didn't realize how crooked this company is. My husband and I had been referred to see Larry at Heath's Income Tax by some of my husbands co-workers. We were told that he was extremely knowledgeable when it came to union members and what could or could not be claimed. So with little knowledge of the tax world and being one of my first tax filings what did what did we have to lose? A LOT apparently... What little did we know was that while he's flipping screens so fast and moving around quick he's plugging in deductions and numbers. Then it was a rushed sign here and expect your return on this date. Well all that flashing around from screen to screen and mumbo jumbo spiels that he gave was just a distraction and a way to take advantage of us when I didn't understand. I take my taxes to someone else and not file them myself because I don't understand!!!! I put trust in someone because I am paying them to file my taxes and that they will do the right thing and due it by the rules. I should have known he was screwed up in the head within the first five minutes of being there Larry told me that my toes looked very pretty that he'd love to suck on them if I'd let him.......I should have turned and walked away from the nasty old man right then. GUESS WHAT??? LESSON FREAKIN LEARNED ROYALY!!!
RUN FAR FROM HEATH – They have ruined so many people's lives. It doesn't catch up with you until a few years down the road where you are having to pay interest in addition to the audit you will receive and trust me its coming. Larry Heath himself admits to others outside of his work for screwing up people and many people being audited. He isnt the only screwed up one. Alicia and Alan Hames are just as messed up. They are crooks. I think from after hearing all the people who are audited because they are liars we need to get a class action lawsuit going. They need to be stopped. Everyone giving them a good rating because they are getting a whole lot of money with them than anywhere else will be coming back and giving a bad rating. Trust me! In addition the police car is not just patrolling for nothing. They have received many death threats and I see why. They have ruined so many people lives. LAWSUIT!!! Something needs to be done.
desaster waiting to happen – i was urged by several friends to have heath do my taxes.i always went to h&r block because [THEY STAND BEHIND YOUR TAX PREPERATATION NO MATTER WHO IN THEIR OFFICE DONE THEM]!!!!!!!! SO IN 2012 I GET AN ENVELOPE FROM THE IRS WANTING PAPERS TO VERIFY WHAT WAS ON MY TAX RETURNS.YES THEY WAS DONE BY ANDY BUT HE WORKED OUT OF HEATHS TAX SERVICE LOCATION.THERE AGAIN HEATH TAXES DONT STAND BEHIND THEIR WORK.SO IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THEM DO YOUR TAXES HERES SOME ADVICE DONT EFILE BECAUSE YOUR RELEIVING VTHEM OF ANY LIABILITY AND DONT SIGN NOTHING THEN IF YOU GET AUDITED THEIR LIABLE FOR DAMAGES AS FOR ME I OWE $4100.00 DOLLARS AND AFTER DRIVING 45 MINUTES AND YES THEY RUSHED ME RIGHT BACK BECAUSE THEYT DIDNT WANT CUSTOMERS TO SEE SOMEONE SITTING THERE WITH IRS PAPERS.BAD FOR BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!THEN AFTER SITTING THERE FOR 20 MINUTES AND HEARING THE ANDY EXCUSE HE WORKED OUT OF THEIR OFFICE I DONT KNOW WHERE THEY GET THEIR MORALS FROM BUT IF HE WORKED FORE ME I WOULD AT LEAST TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM BUT THEY TOLD ME THERES NOTHING THEY CAN DO ITS BETWEEN ME AND THE IRS. NOT TO MENTION THEY WAS SURE TO SWIPE MY RECEIPT WHERE I PAID THEM.NOW IM UNEMPLOYED AND OWE VTHE IRS AND HAVE NO WAY TO PAY SO PEOPLE BEWARE AND DONT EFILE OR SIGN ANYTHING THEN IF YOU GET AUDITED YOULL BE PROTECTED BY THE IRS
I will never return – I have been useing Heaths for 10yrs and now im being audited for 2009 after looking at my return there is alot of deductions i wasnt aware of and can not prove so now i have to pay 4900.00 I have tried to contact them but no response they know what they done and knew what could happen to tax payer but didnt care cause they are not being audited if i cant get in touch with them by end of the week (2-10-12) ill file complaints and contact a attorney to see if i have any options
never a bad experience – I have not ever had a bad experience at this location.. I have been getting my taxes done by heaths for the last few years and despite all of the bad reviews (most people won't leave a good review, but they will tell their friends about it) I learned of Heath's tax service from a co worker and have not ever had a bad experience, I actually owed money last year but that was no fault of Heath's tax service. I actually was not claiming enough tax money and was advised to change the amount I was claiming. If you would like a fair price for filing your income taxes, plus a family friendly atmosphere...GO HERE. I drive from Gainesville to Cartersville to get my taxes done by Heath's...enough said.
audit is the right answer here – i used this service in 2009 now in 2012 i have to pay back money. I trusted him (andy) and he really lied on my taxes putting down things i didnt tell him so therefore i have no proff of any of this he put down.I never looked at my paperwork cause i dont know anything about taxes if i did i would have did them myself. My husband hasnt worked since Sept 2009 due to a broke back we barely keep our head above water now i have to try and pay back 2400.00 dollars. But...... if i have to go down someone else will to im turning this in as a fradulant tax preparer dont know if it will do any good he may have already been caught not sure.
ALVIN HAMES AS MUCH A CROOK AT HEATH!!! – Just because it says under new management doesn't matter. Mr. Alvin Hames is as much of a crook as the rest. He now co-owns the business because it kept Larry from losing it. He is in Larry's family. duh!!! They do not care who they hurt as long as they put money in their pocket. They are money driven demons. I have been audited every year since 2008 for mistakes that they "slipped" in that neither my husband or myself caught. We thought we could trust them and when we asked them to help they did NOTHING!! This year is the last year I will ever use them because again another AUDIT!! Try calling them and what do I get??? NO HELP FROM HEATH OR HAMES!!! They are only interested in your money nothing more!!!!
