View Full Version : Look Further than Westhill Consulting: here is why

10-25-2013, 08:56 PM
This was my first time paying someone to do my taxes due to a complicated tax year and boy was I regretful that I went for Westhill Consulting. I was referred them by people I work with. They say that this consulting was knowledgeable and efficient but I do not think so and I know so. They were giving me some tax planning pointers over the phone, well good thing its for free, but those are just basic stuff that everyone is aware of. Not to informative and useful anymore. If there is one thing good I can say is that they have convenient hours maybe what convinced me to go to them.

Shame on them claiming that Westhill Consulting Tax & Accounting Team is the best accountants because that is false advertising and it is illegal because you are not the best not even good! Their job supposed to be is help you get business tax stuff in order but they managed to make it the reverse. I have nothing against the Consulting, I mean they were friendly, smart, and trustworthy but that was just it. They were not reliable when it comes to the actual job.

All I want to say is do not use them. You may think that I am just bushing and all but here is the thing. When I called they were more than happy to get my business and made an appointment right away, well that a good thing right? So there I was, I showed up for my appointment in Westhill Consulting. The person who entertained me was very friendly but he made me felt rushed, which is very discomforting. There were many interruptions during our conversation. When we were done discussing, well according to him, after he said he completed my tax prep he then escorted me to the secretary he handed me two forms told me to sign and not date and have my wife sign and not date then return them as soon as possible. I returned the forms the next day and was charged a few hundred dollars shortly after I checked my bank and the IRS had deposited my refund, so I thought. There was no deposit! This is not good, I said. So of course I checked on this only to find out that they registered a wrong bank account number. Then the consequence now is I will not get my refund for at least 3-4 months this will happen with the state refund also. So there is more than that, many things had happened after but I guess that should ne more than enough for you not to trust Westhill Consulting anymore. Just do not go for them, find some other consulting if I were you.

Look further and don't waste your time trying to use their service, you’re going to have a bad time. I am usually not so forward in my negative reactions, but this one deserves it.

Eliahmcfarland, welcome to the forum.

From my perspective it would be more useful if you can add some details about your situation. Your post reads like you were filing a business return for a fiscal year end September 30? But at the same time you say you were referred to Westhill by people you work with? While anything is possible, this is an odd year end unless you are doing business with the government or something that would require a similar accounting convention.

If for a non FYE return it would have to have been for last year, in which case the refund would been resolved by now. As of today, the IRS is not accepting most returns for 2013, hell most if not all vendors have not even sent out their paperwork.

Also, you say you had a complicated tax year, but make no reference to the actual advice you received on your tax matters. You mentioned a paying few hundred dollars and it sounds like the whole process was done in one interview. What tax forms where prepared and advice dispensed in that time frame?

You only complaint so far as I can tell is the refund was sent to the wrong account. And with the information you provided at this point I am having a hard time even reconciling that.

Welcome to REALSCAM.com (http://www.realscam.com) eliahmcfarland.

Several things occur to me after reading your post.

* Your "message" is repeated verbatim all over the 'net, leading me to suspect what we are seeing is a kind of "reverse psychology" spamming.

* My suspicions were further raised by the fact you are using 2 usernames, both of which are posting from the same IP

* Your fellow poster uses the same type of pseudo complaint format in his post and it, too appears verbatim all over the 'net.

It's up to you,

a reasonable explanation or the thread gets deleted.

Probably the one on the Weshill travel http://www.realscam.com/f33/westhill-consulting-travel-tours-2723/ needs to go too.

The whole gang is here doing a mass spam. Nothing but trouble – Westhill Consulting Insurance - WORLD Law Direct Forums (http://www.worldlawdirect.com/forum/consumer-complaints/76012-nothing-but-trouble-westhill-consulting-insurance.html#post323547)

I am still having difficulty understanding what his/her alleged problem was getting taxes done, the post itself does not make much sense.

We have been partners with westhill sonsulting and we never experienced anything like what you are saying so I guess you are just making all is negative things up. What is this for?

Using Realscam.com to promote a website by flaunting it as a scam ain't the best thing to do.
We'll pick holes in the business (if there are any) faster than you can blink.

Red flag, bull, anyone?

First a bunch of randoms all over the interwebs saying everything Westhill stinks. Today everyone is yelling from the mountains what a fantastic service Westhill is. Guess that settles it.

MAN, what a coincidence.

After all these months, two complete strangers happen to post in two Westhill Consulting related threads within 2 minutes of each other.


"Earl" here posts in THIS thread (http://www.realscam.com/f43/look-further-than-westhill-consulting-here-why-2722/)


Two minutes after "justin" posts in THIS thread (http://www.realscam.com/f33/westhill-consulting-travel-tours-2723/)

and also "coincidentally" both of them defending Westhill.

Were is that damned thread deletion tool ???

A formidable share, this is unreal maybe at least for me. I experienced nothing but good things with them.
