Hey everyone - I had an accountant royally screw up my taxes to the point I would have to pay the Fed $5000 in taxes and $1000 in penalties. I called her up about it and she proceeded to blame me for it, which makes no sense at all. So, I had another accountant fix her work. Honest, nice guy. I got $2200 back from the fed. Why, as a business owner, would I want my taxes done in a way that results in a $8200 loss? So I confronted her with that (including the paperwork from my accountant and the IRS) and told her she could refund me, file a claim with her E&O insurance, or we could go to court and talk about it. She blew me off and said she doesn't care. So, I want to take her to court to get the $1000 in accounting fees she charged for shoddy work. I have a pretty clear and convincing paper trail that points back to her. I've never been to small claims court. What're your thoughts on the situation?
