Highly recommend NOT to go to Gideon to take care of your tax return. I had two tough experiences with him when I trusted him to fill out my 2017 and 2018 tax returns. In 2017 he charged me $500 when he could save a couple of thousands of dollars for me from IRS. I was happy with his price until the last December in 2020 when I received a letter from IRS that shows everything he had deducted for me was wrong and he had a lot of mistakes. Now I have to return all that money I had saved to IRS as tax return, PLUS about $600 interest, only because of his mistakes. When I contacted him, even he doesn't want or know how to fix this problem, and he stopped responding my messages! Almost the same ?scenario in 2018. In 2018 I had to return about $3k to IRS. After he charged me for his service, he had put a wrong address in my tax return forms and because of his mistake again, I haven’t received any letter from IRS for a couple of months after my due date for the payment. When I contacted IRS with a lot of difficulty to figure out what the problem is , I found that Gideon put a wrong address in my file when he filled it out and because of his ridiculous mistakes I paid another penalty to IRS. He had just charged me for his full of mistakes services immediately and after that he has not been responsible at all. Beside lots of inconveniencies and stress my family and I had through the working with Gideon, I have been paying a lot of penalties and interest to IRS only because he doesn’t know his job and he is not responsible for his mistakes. So don’t waist your time and money with him.
