lost my copy of download return
Are you asking whether it is legal for you to not pay your bill? You are in breach of contract. You agreed to pay him for a service, but then you refused to pay him. You should pay him what is owed to him. By the way, a lot of CPAs wouldn't even e-file your return without getting paid first. This guy was nice enough to file your return for you, even though you did not pay him first.

If you need a copy of the information on the return you can request a copy of your tax return transcript from the IRS. This will not look like your return however. A copy of your return will cost approx. $75 and take months to get from the IRS.
