I was referred to Larry from what I thought to be a VERY reliable source. It was the first year my husband & I were married filing for a joint return as well as for the 2008 housing credit. The president had not yet made a determination on the stimulus package, which included the housing credit. Larry advised us that a determination should be made later that week & he would refile our taxes to include the housing credit once a decision had been made. NOT ONCE did he mention that it would be an additional charge to the $225.00 we had already paid him to file our tax return. Larry told my husband to come pick up the return after 4 weeks had passed. When he went in to pick up the amended housing credit Larry's wife(receptionist) told my husband that it was an extra $150.00. I called Larry to see what the extra charge was for & he advised me that he did not work for free & that it was for adding the housing credit to our return. I advised him that he NEVER ONCE told us that it was going to be an additional charge for him to do this. We spoke with Larry on SEVERAL occasions during the 4 week period & he NEVER MENTIONED ANYTHING about it being an additional charge & led us to believe it was included with what we had already paid him. I told him that I felt he was not upfront & honest about the charge & he got VERY RUDE with me & disconnected the call. My husband said he was banging on his desk & acting absurd! I strongly advise to steer clear of this man for any CPA needs.
