That's probably true. Stupid, but true. I was actually thinking of someplace like H&R Block, where they 'guarantee' their work- not required by IRS, but just something they say that they do. My dh had them do his taxes one time and they screwed it up- they didnt' pay the additional money that he owed (because he really did owe it) but they payed the interest that accrued over the year before the IRS caught the mistake.
