The tax service that has done my taxes for the last 3 years has been siezed and shut down by the IRS.  The owner had 3 peo. filling out peoples taxes and when finished he would look them over and sign them.  He is a retired IRS auditor.  He was indicted Tuesday, 4-10-01 for 1 count fraudulent tax preparation and 3 counts aiding and abetting fraudulent tax preparation.
I stopped by 6 weeks ago to drop off my paper work.  Went by the next weekend to pick it up.  The place was shut down.  No one answered the phone, nothing.  Now I find out on the news that he was arrested.  My paper work is still in his building and I can't get to it.  


Yes I'm worried.

(Rant off)

Sh*t!  That sucks, are you worried about missing the deadline, or are you worried about being audited-persecuted, or both?  Either way still sucks.[:(]

He was very popular for his large returns.  I'm worried that he has been fudging the numbers and is gonna get a lot of people in trouble.  He did sign all the returns and we did pay him and get a reciept so I don't know what will happen.  Boy am I worried though.

I have got copies of my W2's so I can get my taxes done, but he or they have all my receipts and paperwork, that I need to itemize.

Sounds like you should bust into the joint. Probably no one watching anyway.

call the IRS and have them document the event under your SS#.  They should also have a record of this joint being closed and should extend your deadline...
