Additional Notes

Complaint: I hired ******for the 3rd year to prepare and file my 2012 taxes. She failed to do so or get an extension and never contacted me. ******sent me my prepared taxes via email on April 11, 2013. I was under the impression at that time my taxes would be e-filed before April 15, 2013. I followed her instructions for paying my CA state taxes when I spoke her her 2 days (Saturday, 4/13) before the April 15th tax filing deadline. At this point I have never once received a return phone call or email from****** . I have called since April probably 25+ times leaving voicemails and have sent numerous emails. I went by her office and no one was there. My step-father was able to catch someone at the office in June and he was told that an extension was filed for filing. He was also told that due to computer issues, she was behind in her preparations and that she would be contacting me. When I spoke to the CA Tax Board today (8/6/13) they confirmed that my 2012 taxes were never filed and an extension was never requested. I now must pay penalties and interest fees on top of paying someone else to prepare and file my taxes. I was unable to speak to anyone at the IRS to confirm that my federal was also not yet filed. All I ever wanted was a confirmation via phone or email about status so that I could handle my taxes separately if necessary.

Desired Settlement: If I am to pay fees, penalties or interest because Mrs. Peck failed to file my return in a timely manner, I feel that she should have to cover those costs.
