I had a very BAD experience with this business. Ms Hall handled my tax return, and the IRS found issues with it. I gave miss Hall all the information I had, and everything she ask for. When I received notice from the IRS, I went to Ms Hall. She looked at the letter talked to me for a very few minutes. Not even long enough to sit down. After some emails, me doing the leg work she ask for. The end result was a bill for $615 Which she graciously discounted to $450. For her to tell me to pay more to the IRS. She claimed around four hours of her time. I don't know, but it seemed excessive to me. I talked with the CPA I had been using before moving to Valdosta area. She told me had it been her, she would not have charged me anything. Even if it was an error by me, if she did the return. After telling Ms Hall she had not informed she would charge me for a follow up on a tax issues she had filed, and my request to not charge me, because of the circumstances or at lest reduce it to a more reasonable amount. All she would do is agree to not charge me interest on her charges. To add insult to injury. After she sent me the bill. I called and she never has time to talk to me. All she will do is wait for weeks and then send me a text!. I'm sure she has a different view. You decide if this is the kind of business you want to use. And as a final note. She charged be almost $300 for a tax return I had been getting done for about $75. Mine is not a complicated tax return. I don't have much money.

I would in no way shape or form us this place or Erica for your financial needs! She filed my fiance's taxes without speaking with her first and without my fiance signing the tax forms!! Then when we did eventually get into her office to speak with her she assured us she would do an amendment that weekend to make our taxes rite. That was February. So about a month passes and my fiance calls to check on the progress of the amendment and the receptionist isn't sure so she'll call her back. So when she does call back she informs my fiance that she needs to bring Erica a hundred dollars before she will do the amendment! First we wasn't going too and have it done somewhere since she was charging us for something she should have already completed and shouldn't have had to do in the first place. But we figured it would just be easier to go ahead and pay here since she had all of the information already,so we did! Now here it is may 14 and her secretary calls today and inform us that she isn't gonna do the amendment!! First off she filed her taxes without her signing off on them and then sat and looked us both in the face and lied to us to get her to sign them! And didn't complete the amendment like she assured us she would! Very aggravated and sadly feel like we've been taken! You should trust the people that handle your finances and this lady and service can't be trusted! The only decent thing she did out of this whole ordeal is give my fiance her hundred dollars back and her paperwork!
