$360 per hour is what I was charged. Email for receipts I had Fenster & Fenster do my taxes and book keeping for almost 4 years. When prices escalated to $668 per month for a small one person business from $200 and change I asked for a breakdown of my charges...would you know that I was charged $360 an hour for sending a 1099 form? One 1099 was an $90 charge. One quarterly 5 minute state sales tax return where I provided all the numbers was $180. The year prior it was free as a courtesy. I have filed with the Division of Consumer Protection and the BBB on this...and have let every one I know to be vigilant regarding their charges. I have also discussed the matter with other agencies so this type of poor business practice comes to a halt They are very nice and professional there at Fenster and Fenster but, beware of the hourly rate. I have signed receipts the last few months of 2009 by the office noting charges of $360 per hour. Just making the community aware that gouging in some businesses does exist. Fenster and Fenster did waive my last months charge and offered to reduce prices in the future...but the unethical gouging made me go with another CPA. Just be cautious.
