Complaint / review text:
Jackson Hewitt I have tried numerous times to get someone to help with an issue I have with my taxes that were done by Jackson Hewitt. I had my taxes prepared at JH, in 2007 for my 2006 tax return. Well last year, I was notified from the IRS that I owe money back not due to filing my taxes paying the government back, but a mistake by Jackson Hewitt, where they put in the wrong income earned than the form I gave the preparer. I have never in all my years of getting my taxes filed had any tax preparer make up numbers, change to get more back nothing, this was an error by Jackson Hewitt.
I sent my information with my return back to the IRS disputing this over 3700 payment they claim I now owe, because Jackson Hewitt put an amount that was lower than my actual salary amount. I was counting on my income tax return in full that was filed for 2008, to save my home from foreclosure. I wrote and faxed over a third appeal due to hardship to the IRS, that while under dispute not to take my Federal Tax return because of that, while I am trying to get Jackson Hewitt to be held accountable for their mistake. It looks as though now that my return was taken and I am at a loss, my home will have to go for foreclosure, I am behind 3 months do to job loss, and now working as a temp making 55,000.00 less than what I made prior to my unemployment last year.
I was not notified by mail from the IRS that they declined my 3rd request, I can not get no one from Jackson Hewitt to fix there mistake and be accountable for paying for there error, I am looking to be put out on the street by the end of this month because of this and I do not know what to do.
I have just found out that the IRS has taken 4174.89 from my return leaving me with less than 20% of my return, which now I can not pay back my back mortgage and my house is going to go into forclosure, that refund was all I had to keep my home, and for a mistake by Jackson Hewitt in 07, I am paying for it in 09.
