Heres the problem: My parents accountant charged me $1300 dollars to create and fill out my forum!

I reply:

Did you have any advance discussion with the accountant regarding how much he would charge? Or did you simply turn him loose?

Having said that, I've always done my own taxes, so I don't know what normal fees would be, but $1300 for what sounds like a relatively simple return (even if there were wash sale issues) sounds high enough that I would expect an experienced professional to have given the client a head's up in advance. --Bob
