I was audited because some I had do my taxes were doing them very wrong and lying to me about them. I take my taxes to get done because I don't know much about it. Any ways I was audited by the state of Minnesota. I was nervous and did not know what to do. Someone recommended Arnold to me. I met with him. I signed over my audit for him to talk to the state for me. In the end I regret ever going to him. He did nothing for me. He actually took a really bad situation and made it a lot worse. I would have been better off to hand my stuff to the state and let them have at it. The auditor from the state did a conference call with Arnold and I. During the whole time he did and said nothing. I was thrown to the wolves. Since this time I have learned from other accountants that I should have filed for an abatement. Arnold never said a word about it. Not once. Also the ladie for the state said I could not use my mileage because I did not have an address for were I was working but when looking up the laws after.what Arnold clearly knows or should and did not say a word. It states that if you work at a movable location. Movable meaning it is in one spot for a year or less that you can write of your miles from your home and back. You don't get much more movable then an oil rig. He did nothing for me. In the end I completely got screwed and he tried to bill me for 800.00. I ended up filling bankruptcy. I still am paying my tax debt and trying to hire a tax attorney now. I felt horrible for the places I filed on. But I'm glad I filed on him. He don't deserve a dime and should probably retire if he wants to take on cases and not give a shit or help people with what he says he will.
Response from Arnold A. Kahara, LTD CPA
First of all, I did spend hours helping Cory prepare for the audit. The issue with the auditor, as I recall it was that Cory's place of business was his employer's place of business rather than the various oil rigs. Cory tried to contact Cory's employer with the auditor to explain Cory's situation, but for some reason this did not happen. Therefore, due to the duration of Cory's employment the business miles were disallowed. Without Cory being able to contact his employer I did not think there was anything else I could do. Maybe a tax attorney can get somewhere with the state. Arnie Kahara

I have been working with Arnie and his crew for nearly 20 years I guess. In that time I have used them for everything from payroll, to corporate tax preparation, and personal taxes. I have always received personalized services and I emphasize Personal. When you work with this team you are working with REAL PEOPLE. No high-brow attitude which mean a lot to me. I would emphatically recommend Arnold A.Kahara, LTD to anyone and everyone looking for great service from people working toward your success.
