A member wrote in about this “offer” by a tax preparer in the Maryland area:
The information is only hearsay, but I am playing it safe rather than sorry.
Though I’m not a tax specialist, I have some training and knowledge in taxes, and my research turned up no such tax program. I consulted two tax specialists who work closely with military members and neither know of such a program.
Have you used this service and actually received a tax refund? What about a friend of yours? If so, email email@example.com.
Does this tax preparer know something other preparers don’t? I don’t know, but I doubt it. I suggest that anyone considering such help question the tax preparer about the source of this program and provide proof from the IRS or seek other help.
Remember: You have more time to file and pay federal taxes this year, but state deadlines vary.
