Has this happened to anyone else?
I just got an email from my CPA this morning--he messed up our return and needs to file the paperwork for a correction. The thing is, the mistake was not in our favor. He didn't tell me in the email how bad the mistake was, but we will have to give some of our return back--I am hoping not all of it!
We already got our return and used the money to pay off my daughter's ear tube surgery, so we don't have the cash any more. I was wondering, has this ever happened to anyone else? Should our CPA take some of the blame--ie., offer to pay part of the mistake? Or is this the liability we assume when someone else does our taxes?
And if we have to pay it all back (our return was about $1500), how do we cope? We don't use credit cards and we are a single income family.
