    Atbs is a scam and a big rip off been with company for 4 months they said i owed 1400 in taxes 3rd quarter and told me texas eich i live in has no income tax and when i confronted them oabout this they say that not what they said when they clearly put it on my 1099es. Then. They got an attitude when i told them i was not. Going to use thheir services anymore and that i was going back to my local cpa

    Yes they send me quarterly estimated taxes due but I never pay them quarterly because ATBS doesn't factor in my per dieum (sp) which would lower those quarterlies quite a bit.

    I guess their theory is overpay quarterly then get back a refund and the customer is happy?

    How would they know how many days you are out 100% and those days that are partial days? These are estimated taxes.

    I was provided six free months of ATBS. I fired them after four.

    My "rep" was an insulting dweeb. Former lawyer and geologist, now a 66-year-old ATBS flunkie. After he questioned my wife's ability to send a fax (she's an administrative assistant to a college professor and assistant dean of his department), I told him and his superior in no uncertain terms what they could do with their entire organization.
     
    Airborne and driverdriver Thank this.

    That's the whole point they are estimating my taxes based on incomplete information. They might say I owe $4000 in quarter taxes but they don't know to deduct the $2500 per diem write off. Well, they didn't ask and if I tell them which I have, they don't have a way to work that in.

    I believe Texas is one of those handful of states which have no state income taxes.
