I completed my tax return online. The email communications that I received was less than informative with poor spelling and grammar. It was a simple tax return. The person who completed my tax made a mistake and told me the wrong amount. The accountant picked up her error which she corrected and then sent back to the accountant for review. This whole process took two weeks before it got submitted to the ATO. Limited communication, I had to follow up. Overpriced, poor service, unprofessional. NEVER AGAIN!
My tax return lodged with out my authorization,they took money off my bank too.Same return can be done for $50 where as they charge$177.The guy was doing with help of someone else on the phone and missed a lot of things that were supposed to be claimed.Their only place to complain is to where u get ur tax done leaving u no choice.If u make online appointments,they ain't aware of it either.They don't deserve a single star.
ITP East Bentleigh avoid at all costs
I cannot stress enough how bad the tax agents at East Bentleigh are. I lost thousands of dollars from their incompetence & illegal acts. The agent Dennis Argyle changed my address with the ATO without my permission & lost my 3 years worth of returns. To make it worse he then gave debt collectors my personal banking information which they used to direct debit huge fees until I was overdrawn & kept incurring dishonor fees from there actions. They've taken no responsibility nor even explained themselves. Could not get worse service ever.

Switched on professional tax agent
Sara from ITP is an amazing tax agent working for ITP Ryde. We have filed our last two years tax lodgements with her and have been impressed with her attention to detail, professionalism, sense of humour and efficiency. She recommended a depreciation schedule for our investment unit that a previous agent did not and that saved us a significant amount of money. Highly recommended!
ITP Sydney South
I know there are alot of scathing reviews for ITP but honestly, for me, the Sydney team are very good at what they do, I have been with them for a little over 2 years and each tax return is thorough and refund is quick (less than 2 weeks) and the fee is fine ($160) I am only sorry people don't have the same experience at other branches - I would recommend this team and specifically speak with Steve or Muhammad - I put a friend there way and she is happy too - hope this helps :)
Excellent service ITP NORTH LAKES
I am extremely satisfied and happy with ITP north lakes especially to Belinda and Les because they were so helpful with my tax return. Belinda went above and beyond her duties to be able to help me file. ITP North Lakes exceeded my expectations for an awesome tax agent. Class A Service. Thank you guys! Keep it up!
Do not use this firm, they had my return for a week, failed to let me know, after communication with the ato, I found out they had my return! Although when I went to see them they didn't know if they had it or not, they found out they did have it, although no miney is owed to them by myself for fees I am still waiting to receive my return, they were also going to deduct the accountancy fees when I had paid in cash, if you want a headache trying to get your return I highly recommend you see these unprofessional agents.
The accountant at ITP neglected to attach my PAYG summary provided her in 2018, with the result that the ATO is now threatening me with further action fifteen months later. The Southport office manager rather than apologise for this gross oversight,, put the accountant's negligence down to 'human error'. This is wholly unacceptable, I paid this firm to do a professional job.
Stay well away from these' flybynight' unprofessionals.
Made a booking this morning for 5.15pm to get tax done, got there early and waited until 5.55pm until the people before me finished, when I went to the counter I explained I had a 5.15 booking, the accountant told me oh sorry we close at 6pm. How about a courtesy call to cancel or come over to me as I could clearly be seen waiting. I have been using itp for a few years but will never use them again and will tell about 10 people I know who also use them to never use them again, UNPROFESSIONAL!!!
Poor unprofessional service
I had a terrible experience with the tax agent based at Logan Holme . She was rude and I have Been working for 45 years and this is the first time anyone has ever demanded I prove all deductions to them . I had all the figures and was happy to sign it was correct if audited by the ATO . I could tell she did not like me at the assessment time because of what she said to me and I think for this reason did not send my claim for 3 weeks . When I rechecked the figures some were recorded incorrectly . Never had a problem before and will not be back !
ITP have received my return from the ATO almost a week ago now and yet have not passed on my refund to me - a month since the return was initially lodged. 2 phone calls, an email and even messaging them via Instagram has got me nowhere; nobody seems to know where my money has gone? Won't be back.
They didn’t accommodate me.
I went to Australia Fair Shopping Centre in Gold Coast and they had a cubicle in front of the Woolies. I expected since they were there, no appointments were necessary. But the woman behind the desk told me that I need to have an appointment with them since they have no slots for me that day considering I was there at around 9am. So she suggested that I come at 1pm the next day (that would be Saturday) and I pointed out that the Saturday schedule posted in their cubicle was only 9am to 12noon. So how come they gave me a 1pm appointment?! Or just plain and simple they would not like to do my tax return.
I would never recommend this accounting firm.
I felt I have been discriminated.
I did two lots of tax 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. I was told that for the two years tax i would receive $1200 being made up of $300 and $900. I received my tax payment in my bank account tonight and after what they have taken I got $600. That means I paid $600 for them to do two lots of tax, $300 a year are you kidding me. Looking on the internet I see other companies do it for around $165 meaning I paid almost double. I worked for one company and received Centrelink, the lady who did my tax at Goodna didn't claim half of what I've since found out I could claim. I'm so disappointed in them I will never go back
Individual Tax Return-Southport QLD
The emailed Copy of the completed tax return showed no details that indicated it was my tax return. It could have belonged to anyone as it was full of the following NNNNNNNNNNNN comments. There was no evidence to indicate my tax return had been lodged with the ATO.
No Stars. Would give minus if I could.
ITP have received my return from the ATO almost a week ago now and yet have not passed on my refund to me. 3 phone calls to the agent and head office to find out why. All telling me they would call me back and advise when I can expect my refund and no return call. Why am I having to chase up MY money when they charged me $180+ to do this. I will NEVER use them again and I will NEVER recommend them to anyone else either. ITP CAMPBELLTOWN AND LIVERPOOL are disgraceful.
Penrith ITP Office, 356 High Street, Penrith
Hass from Penrith ITP office attended to our tax returns this morning. He was very professional, no question was too difficult for him to answer and we were in and out within half an hour. We use ITP every year and would totally recommend it to anyone.
Bad business practices
I had my tax done by tax refund on the spot. I asked if it could be done early on 29/0619 I was advised by tax refund ether spot via email that yes it can be done as they would access information on ato website. 12 days later ato advises me that there was discrepancies on what had been put on my tax refund assessment and what was actually reported to ato by my employer. ATO then cancelled my refund assessment and re did it with correct information. A major hold up for my expected refund. As I am relying on refund as need it desperately I was...advised by ato to get tax refund on the spot to put in a priority processing request through their tax Agent Portal online. I requested this 7 times to no avail. I ended up ringing ato myself and putting priority processing request in. At that time I was advised to update my bank details from tax on the spot to my own bank details which was done. Now tax on the spot keep going into my ato records and changing it back to theirs which will now cause further delays on my refund. Tax on the spot have not done what they are paid to do. I have had to do all the contacting to ato to get my botched up tax return done and had to spend many hours for same. Very unprofessional of tax refund on the spot. Will never again use them.
Thank you for taking the stress out of lodging a tax return, and for speedy and friendly service. Fair price for quality service and continued followup to ensure correct details.

Worse than terrible!!
Met consultant 29 Oct. Provided last of info they requested on 12 Nov. Chased up on 17 Dec, only to find out they closed all offices on 7 Dec. Won't open until 7 Jan. Not one phone number for the whole organisation is being answered. All say to ring back in 3 weeks (7 Jan)!
So much for the GUARANTEE on the website: "Our ALL YEAR ROUND guarantee also ensures that you have access to our consultants anytime to discuss all matters related to your specific tax affairs – without charge!*"
Withdraw money from my account without my consent!
Had my tax return done in August from itp; received my tax return within 10 days as planned and thought they took out their fee beforehand which was agreed at the appointment. Then 2 months later received a letter from them telling me that I have 7 days to pay an outstanding amount or they would refer me to a collection agency so I contacted them asking what this was about, they told me that I owe them money from the tax return they did for me, I told them that amount should have been taken out before they deposited my return in my account and ...I want to see the statement from ato to state otherwise. Well did not here from them at all only to find that they have just withdrawn $179 out of my bank account without my consent = I’m pretty sure this is illegal.
