If these rumors are not true then why are so many people believing them to be true. Jim must have a reputation that supports people believing the worst condition. It is hard to understand anyone wanting to hurt someone's business...almost the entire town is believing that this is true....a very bad reflection on the trustworthiness of Jim.
People will have to make up their own minds as to the validity of the rumor but 95% believe it to be true. Many of his clients must be thinking that they need to avoid this situation and are now wondering who should do their tax work!

Two of his clients went to his office to retrieve their records and his wife told them they were unavailable. One client stopped up to this office and found all the records gone and the computers gone. Also, a client called and asked for Jim...Jim answered and said he was in California for 2 and 1/2 weeks! Sounds fishy especially with all his records unavailable.

You people are unbelievable... You all are speculating and noone knows for sure what happened. He did not get arrested and the computers are not gone. Sounds to me like the Albany Tax Man is looking to get more business. What do your comments say about you since you are suppose to be a "Professional" and are badmouthing another person in your profression... Grow Up!
I have called Jim and spoken to him personally and have made my appointments for the 2010 Tax season!

Jim has done my taxes for 15+ years, I always call him in August to set my appointment.(just called last week), If I don't remember to call until September or worse late September I can not get in until late March. Jim works morning, noon, night and late night for his clients.....Guess you are a walk-in tax person at that (H&R) that doesn't appreciate good service, great personalty and a fair price.

No, I don't use H&R. I actually have a real accountant that gets me in when I need it. I don't have to give a 5 month advanced notice. I'm also not the type of person that needs to rely on my tax money (probably the earned income credit)the first of the year. So enjoy your early appointment.

Heard on the streets that his office files were open and documents missing. Also his clients are unable to get their tax materials because they were unavailable. Plus the computers were missing. Also heard the FBI was interested in the kiddy porn files on his tax computers. That's why the IRS took the computers. If these are rumors, he should set the record straight and respond here with his version of these events. Otherwise these rumors will continue.

Then its obvious that your accountant isn't that busy... and as for me making apppointments in august, he is that busy and booked early. It has nothing to do with relying on EIC tax money..FYI its a matter of getting the time to sit down with the accountant and going over the business files and the appt. isn't until March so dont assume you know that people rely on their EIC tax money...Sounds like you are jealous.

I have known Jim for many years. He is a great accountant and I never had any problems when I used him to do my taxes. They aren't as complicated anymore so I do my own. The IRS audits people frequently so I'm sure that's what this is, an audit. It doesn't mean that Jim's done anything wrong. He does such a high volume of business it's bound to happen once in a while.

I would ike to concur that I as well made my appt. and had no problem. Always call in August to get our first week in February. He is busy and books up quickly since he stays up on the changes and know what we (taxpayers) are able to claim. I would never go anywhere else after having him for 10 years. If you ask me, the idiot that started this on Topix is some accountant who is desparate for clients and wants to attempt to ruin Jim's name in order to pick up the business. Jim will always be booked up because like someone else said he's just good at what he does and he has a great personality. We love him.
