Taxes are complicated enough, without running into problems getting your refund. Beware of tax preparers who hold your income tax refund hostage, warned Jeannette Kopko of BBB in Dallas in this story with Doug Magditch of CW33- TV, Dallas - Fort Worth.
"The tax preparer won’t give you your return until you pay a bunch of fees that you didn’t know about when you first signed up," said Doug Magditch.
"If you do go with a tax preparer, make sure you find someone who’s legit," he said.
“Make sure you understand all the terms and conditions and all the fees,” said Jeannette Kopko of BBB serving Dallas and Northeast Texas.
Bottom line: make sure you know what you’re signing up for before you sign up for it.
