my accountant charges $150 per hr to correspond with the state or govt, on my behalf, should the need arise. he charges a minimal fee for each visit i make, each phonecall i make, and for anything he has to do for me. understood. ok, he screwed up a few things over the yrs. then, he charges, to make it right. this time, i bout had it. he filed my sales tax wrong. he typed in "sales tax collected -xyz. " then he typed " sales tax owed "0". i sent a check for the correct amount owed, but they would not accept it, cus the return was filed wrong. he charged me $125 for his service on this. i corrected it myself, which required 2 hrs worth of phone time with the state (over 4 different phone calls, to get someone who finally knew wtf was going on). i had to stop payment on the original check, and send new one (approx 25 min time.) and a $35 stop payment fee. tell me, what does my accountant owe me?
