They stole my money

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
This company stole my money and did nothing. They caused my state irs bill to become a lien by telling me not to contact the state and they were waiting for a response. When it came time to provide me with information they denied me the information after trying to charge an additional $3440 . THEY ARE CROOKS SND SCAMMERS PLEASE DONT DO IT.

Treated very disrespectful

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
8/25/22. Tried to have a power antenna installed @ Finishline on my 84' Buick. (I have a new one in the box supplied). I was quoted $600 ($100 an hour labor), technician said that the fender had to be removed and there was a lot of labor involved. I told them I watched 3 YouTube videos and only the wheel and wheel well had to be removed and labor was 2-3 hours. (I am disabled and would have done the work if I could). When I said, "I guess you don't want my business." I was asked to leave out the side door. If you are not sure how to perform the work or just don't want to do it just say so. I would have understood.

Bad business

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
FINISHLINE TAX SOLUTIONS, LLC Tax ID 320******** Zip Code 77054 May 2020 Finishline tax solution submitted an offer in compromise form 656 to the IRS on my behalf. It was rejected by the IRS because it was incomplete. Approximately June-July 2021 I filed bankruptcy and was recently discharged in approximately May 2022 Until I filed BK 2:21 bk 04349 I pleaded with the company (Finishline tax solutions) to finish the process until I was not able to contact them or get a call back until I filed a complaint with the BBB in early 2022. The company finally responded and only offered me $500 (non-negotiable) refund out of the $1700 I paid them claiming that they did file my 2016 tax return. I felt I had no choice but to accept the $500 at the time. Reason for the complaint: I feel that paying $1.200 is excessive for filing one tax return on my behalf and not completing the offer in compromise as promised. I want more of my refund back from this company and willing to pay a reasonable amount for filing a tax return. Reasonable is about $150 as charged by most tax preparation companies. No documents are attached. I only have a copy of form 656 filed by the company and a copy of 2016 tax return the company filed on my behalf.

Horrible company/ Completely Fake/ Scamming/ Under handed

Original review Apr 09, 2022
Horrible company and a complete waste of time and money. I made a mistake on my 2018 taxes and received notice from IRS saying I owe 5k. I contact Finishline to deal with the IRS and was informed to stop making payments to IRS and send them $300 a month for 6 months. I put my 1st pay towards the balance in Oct. 2021 and monthly payments of $300. After 5 months of waiting, Finishline came up with a payment plan of $72 a month for 6 years. I could have made payment arrangements with IRS instead of paying this fake company. After a few months, I did my taxes and the IRS took $5580 so they have been paid in full. I decided to contact the IRS and was informed at no time did Finishline Taxes contact them by email, fax, or phone. For the entire 6 months, this company did absolutely nothing concerning me with IRS to help with my solution. They charge my account but did not do their job. They will only scam you, take your money, and will not contact the IRS. They tell you to stop paying the IRS so you can pay them to do absolutely nothing. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. Currently seeking guidance on reporting them and getting my money back.

My refund for1900.00

I am a senior and a disabled veteran. I contacted this firm hoping that I could get my Internal Revenue bill deceased. Based on the review, you stated that you could help me. So the cost of this review was $1900.00, which i thought was very expensive. So moving forward believing that this firm could help me . After talking with Steffany Jackson, Senior Tax Analyst and Manuel Vasquez, my records showed that I had money in the bank, own cars, which I thoughts it had nothing to do with getting my (IRS) bill deceased. So based on the review and research, i am requested my money to be refunded back to me. I have a serious complaint about the final results. Please contact me!!! Thanks!!!

KickIRS.com is a registered brand of Finishline Tax Solutions and states that clearly on the KickIRS.com website. I'm sorry that you were confused and didn't see branding statement on the KickIRS.com site.

cancellation of my account and the refund of 780.00

Updated by user May 14, 2021

I didn't get 780.00 back. They kept 600.00 and after a long time refunded 180.00. They are a horrible company

Original review Apr 14, 2021
Very poor service and treatment. Paid $780.00 up front and got absolutely nothing but lies. I got nothing that I was promised. Could barely get anyone to talk to me. So I told them that I was cancelling my account and that I wanted my money refunded. And they agreed to it but no one as done anything yet

Scott Curley = Michael Avery at Finish Line Tax Solutions

Scott Curley is at it again. I signed up with his new company Finish Line Tax Solutions, paid the 2500 and got nothing. They promised me the moon and gave me dog *** A little internet searching shows that Scott Curley is now using the name Michael Avery. I found out that Michael Avery is Scott Curley with about a 10 minute internet search. Do not give this scam company any money. What really *** me off is that I was referred to them by Optima Tax Relief, who I though was legit, but I guess they are a scam company also.

It's so unfortunate that ex employees would go online to slander a good company that has helped thousands of taxpayers get their tax matter resolved. Just sad.
