Mott Tax Advisory Service - Warn consumers that this business is run by an unethical and...
Updated by user Oct 16, 2022

I was asked by "pissedconsumer" if I had contacted the owner to resolve the issue, and the answer is a qualified "No", because the owner has previously threatened to sue me if I dared to publicly place negative reviews online. (he sent me an email to that effect)....

Original review Sep 16, 2022
Owner, Alan Mott, calculated my tax incorrectly by saying I owed more than I did. He then sent the return to the IRS without my knowledge or permission, which IRS itself considers Misconduct.

I had to file an Amended (revised) return with another firm at additional tax prep cost. They found Mott had overestimated my tax due by almost $700, and I incurred the stress and aggravation of corresponding back and forth with the IRS for almost 2 years. (Anyone who has had dealings with the IRS, knows how that goes)!

Mott then lied, and said I hadn't paid him by valid check, when he actually received payment in full for his services. He hid the check and took me to court for "non-payment" forcing me to send a certified check for his fee.

Loss:
$270
Cons:
  • Owner is incompetent and vindictive

User's recommendation: Be aware that Mott and his accountant are not CPA's. This is not illegal, but you might prefer a legitimate CPA for your taxes.

Owner, Alan Mott, calculated my tax incorrectly by saying I owed far more than I did. He then sent the return to the IRS without my knowledge or permission, which IRS itself considers Misconduct.
