You should first contact the first tax service and see if they can explain what happened and correct it. You should also contact the IRS and let them know what happened. If you cannot resolve this quickly this way, seek legal counsel immediately to help you sort this out and get it corrected.

I agree, call the IRS and ask questions. And what happened to your tax refund?
