My Tax Accountant Has Had My Tax Info For 4 Weeks And Still Has Not Finished It. What Should I Do?

This is the second year that I have used this particular accountant. I have some complicated rental property stuff, make 100k, and hold a government clearance. So, I choose to let a professional do them. I dropped off my neat and orderly tax information to him 4 weeks ago. He told me to give him 2 weeks. I sent him a email on the 15th day. He replied that his firm had more corporations to file by March 15th that anticipated and stated that personal returns had to take a back seat offering no apologies or insight as to when I could expect him to get it done. It is now the 21st, a full 4 weeks after I sat down with him and handed him my tax stuff. He has gotten me back a bunch of money in the past and I have been pleased with his past service, although now I am on the verge of getting really angry with him. I know he is very busy and appreciate the fact that most accountants are extremely busy during this time of the year. With that said, should I be upset that it’s been 2 weeks over the expected timeline and be understanding? Or should I demand a discount and for him to finish it now? At this moment, I feel like I’ve been put on the back burner. Please, anyone with suggestions?

    You know they are busy this time year, I’m a business owner too and I have to wait as well. Don’t piss him off by asking for a discount he may drop you as a client if you’re happy with them suck it up and deal with it. I don’t mean to sound harsh but I know if
    You have complicated return how hard it is to find good accountants …appreciate the ones you got I know because I fired four before I found mine.

    And so now you do and will have to make your own personal decision about this matter and then just be ready to accept what ever the consequences of your own decision is going to be after you do decide what ever way that you do want to decide to do and that you do want to do about this matter at this time in your life.
    You could just check around in your area and see if you can find some one else that would be willing to work with you your for your 2012 tax year income tax returns and talk to them and see how you and they might be able to get along and the prices that might be charged to get them done correctly and completely at that time in your life.
    And then think about it and then make your own decision.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 03/21/2013
