Overall sounds on the high side, but another way to look at it, the problem is with the IRS not the CPA, he is just charging you for his time and effort. First off he did not do the return initially so he had to fully review the return to see what was going on, secondly the amount you owe the IRS has nothing to do with how much he charges, he works by the hour not by the %
Called on 3 different occasions and was on hold for over 45 minutes each time and only spoke to someone once.
do you think he had any better luck? I am sure he has other things to do besides sitting on hold with the IRS
DO you use him now for your yearly stuff? If so I would think a call to him might help, if you are not using him...well that might be part of it too
