From personal experience, this man is a conartist. Currently, Eldar and his brother, Farid, are wanted by the Azerbaijan Judicial Authorities to stand trial and serve a sentence for their involvement in money laundering, obtaining property in criminal ways, and embezzlement on a large scale. The men fled their country to avoid arrest and now reside in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where both men also own and operate several small businesses. For more information regarding the facts stated above, go to Interpol.com and under the "WANTED" tab, type in Azakov and these two men will appear with photos and details regarding their crimes. Internationally Wanted, as deemed by Interpol. Personal experience with this man and his brother proved to be devastating to my family as the men worked their way into my employers trust, forced me, my young daughter and my husband out of our home that we lived in and shared with the company's business office, previously insisted on by the owner, and then terminated our employment in one afternoon. No warning, notice, consideration, just a very deceitful and cold plan to get even closer to the owners. In one afternoon, we had lost our home, our jobs and then they hid from us so they could keep all the wages and earnings that were and are legally owed to us. It's been 8 months, they have yet to explain themselves and have made no effort to pay what is owed to us. I would think very hard before considering this individual for any of your personal/financial needs. It could have devastating effects on your future finances. There is nothing worth losing everything you have worked for your entire life. Find another tax preparer, there are more than several to choose from. It is my duty to share this information in hopes that no one else is swindled by this man.

We have employed David L. Miner at Gold Medal Solutions along with his mother Clarice Emily for a number of years taking care of our bookkeeping needs and business and personal tax preparation. Starting in Fourth Quarter 2015 our 941's and 940's were made sporadically leaving us owing the IRS penalties and interest amounting to several hundred dollars. My husband was dying at the time and just wanted them to make it good and they never did. I have repeatedly warned them that I would give them bad reviews if our personal information originals were not returned to us and if we were not reimbursed for the penalties and interest that we ended up paying the IRS along with their wages for the First Quarter of 2016 for which they did nothing as I hired a new accounting firm which did our taxes for 2016 as I could no longer place my trust in David Miner and Clarice Emily to do our taxes for which an extension had been made for until October of 2016. Originals were not returned then and never have been upon several requests. Until the Fourth Quarter of 2015 they had always done a good job for us but put us in a real bad situation after that. The IRS stated that our personal property would be seized so I went ahead and paid the back penalties and interest this last couple of months and feel that this should be reimbursed to us by God Medal Solutions who cannot even respond to a certified mailing received by them Monday the 15th of May. I am very disappointed because I thought were friends as well as business associates.

DO NOT GO HERE! Not sure where to even start but here I go...Jerry is a LIAR. I dropped my taxes off to Jerry in mid-February of 2017 to complete my wife and I's taxes for 2016. At first, Jerry seemed like a professional guy that was going to get our taxes "done within a week or two". I called Jerry about 2 weeks later to see how the taxes were coming along. He said that he was very busy and would get them done that weekend. It's close to the April deadline so I understand that he's busy and maybe committed himself to too much this year. No problem. A week or two go by and still no word from Jerry. At this point it's about a week out from the 4/15 deadline so I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I call Jerry and AGAIN he says he's almost done but not quite there yet. I'm a bit concerned at this point, but given that Jerry's been doing this for a while, I give him a shot to redeem himself. He then calls me about a week later and asks for my wife SSN so that he can file an extension...WHAT?! It's been over a month and you haven't had her SSN this entire time?!? Jerry said that he took on too much work and that he will file an extension for both of us and get our taxes done by the end of April. At this point, I just want them done so I go along with what he's saying (HUGE mistake). It's now May and I finally got IRS on the phone only to find out that neither of our taxes have been extended and that Jerry LIED about the whole thing. I'm not sure what he's been doing(most likely drinking beers at his local pub) but he clearly was misleading me the entire time and never planned on doing my taxes. The fact that he would lie about filing an EXTENSION really hurt because now I'll have to file my taxes and pray that I don't owe otherwise I'll be hit with huge penalties. I strongly recommend going to a true professional and not some old timer that can't get his priorities straight. Jerry - you're a horrible tax professional and your licence should be revoked.
