Complaints Against David Prothero, CPA, P.C.

A complaint made by a client represents his bad image. So, let’s move on with his complaint. He posted that the work was satisfactory, however, it was pricey and charged at an enigmatic hourly rate.

He was nickeled and dimed for everything—the cost of paper copies of his return, the cost of mailing the paper copies and his old tax return back to him, the cost of the initial consultation, etc.—despite the fact that there was no transparency in how the hours were calculated.

There were some issues with responding to him and his staff, and one of his staff members ended up preparing his taxes rather than him. Although nothing went wrong, it turned out that a form was submitted that wasn’t essential, which increased the cost (and the estimated number of hours) even further.

That was how much his new accountant charged for an otherwise mediocre/average experience—he checked at the price of the tax preparation he had with David the previous year, laughed, and asked if he had been audited (which he had not).
