I had one company (in another state that I have used for years) file my taxes but when they had finished and sent us the results in the mail we noticed they had filed
Married, filed jointly instead of
Married, filed separately even though we had requested they do the latter. They refused to submit an addendum, stating that we told them the wrong way. Since today is tax day, we went to H&R Block (locally) yesterday for them to fix the mistake and upon submitting correctly we got kick back stating that it has already been submitted.
Note that filing correctly as
Married, filed separately is crucial as my wife has loans that are in an income based repayment program so my income can't appear combined with hers or the payments skyrocket which is why getting this corrected is of the utmost importance.
First of all, H&R Block is making the addendum today and we will mail it out. I was told that for them to do an addendum since they were not the original source that they would basically have to fill everything out again like how the original one was done first. So I have a couple very important questions..
- My original filer sent me the forms to sign in the mail. Since they were filed incorrectly, should I not sign these? They showed up in the system as
filedso how can this happen without my signature?
- When I get my refund from the original, should I cash them or not? Likewise, for one state I owed money so should I submit that amount or wait until I get the new one in?
