This was my first time paying someone to do my taxes due to a complicated tax year and boy was I regretful that I went for Westhill Consulting. I was referred them by people I work with. They say that this consulting was knowledgeable and efficient but I do not think so and I know so. They were giving me some tax planning pointers over the phone, well good thing its for free, but those are just basic stuff that everyone is aware of. Not to informative and useful anymore. If there is one thing good I can say is that they have convenient hours maybe what convinced me to go to them.
Shame on them claiming that Westhill Consulting Tax & Accounting Team is the best accountants because that is false advertising and it is illegal because you are not the best not even good! Their job supposed to be is help you get business tax stuff in order but they managed to make it the reverse. I have nothing against the Consulting, I mean they were friendly, smart, and trustworthy but that was just it. They were not reliable when it comes to the actual job.
All I want to say is do not use them. You may think that I am just bushing and all but here is the thing. When I called they were more than happy to get my business and made an appointment right away, well that a good thing right? So there I was, I showed up for my appointment in Westhill Consulting. The person who entertained me was very friendly but he made me felt rushed, which is very discomforting. There were many interruptions during our conversation. When we were done discussing, well according to him, after he said he completed my tax prep he then escorted me to the secretary he handed me two forms told me to sign and not date and have my wife sign and not date then return them as soon as possible. I returned the forms the next day and was charged a few hundred dollars shortly after I checked my bank and the IRS had deposited my refund, so I thought. There was no deposit! This is not good, I said. So of course I checked on this only to find out that they registered a wrong bank account number. Then the consequence now is I will not get my refund for at least 3-4 months this will happen with the state refund also. So there is more than that, many things had happened after but I guess that should ne more than enough for you not to trust Westhill Consulting anymore. Just do not go for them, find some other consulting if I were you.
Look further and don't waste your time trying to use their service, you’re going to have a bad time. I am usually not so forward in my negative reactions, but this one deserves it.
