Re: Problem with US tax preparation

Has anyone else had a negative experience with Patrick Evans from US tax practice?

http://www.ustaxpractice.com/

I found him online and am really regretting not having gone with someone who came personally recommended. He just plain blew off the US tax deadlines. It was bizarre. Long story short, he now is trying to charge us the full amount he quoted us for tax preparation after having not done our taxes.
I'm not sure what you mean about having totally blown off the US tax deadlines? As someone who lives abroad, you get an automatic two-month extension without even asking for it (so your tax return isn't due until June 15), and a six-month extension is granted without any need for justification by either 1) making a partial payment against your current liability or 2) filing a form 4868.

In any case, my experience is that none of the expat tax preparers work to the April 15 deadline. Most work towards a June 15 deadline, and I routinely file for a six-month extension so I can receive my definitive CH tax liability before I file my US return.

Before you go too far in criticizing, it's worth double-checking that there hasn't been a simple misunderstanding.

PS - I've also had good experiences with Greenback (as recommended above)
