Overall I am very satisfied with Brian's help on my tax return. He was very approachable and happy to answer questions to me, as the system was very new to me. His initial questionnaire opened up some opportunities to claim tax back, for example for my move which I would not have thought of. I ended up with a nice return expected and confidence to have all steps covered, which is important for me as the US system can be scary. Only con I have to mention, but don't want to deduct a star for, is that my surname was misspelt and some addresses were incorrect in the first draft so I just recommend to review it before e-filing. Thanks Brian and maybe speak next year?

Having only recently moved to San Jose, I needed a new CPA. I found Jay and his firm Focus Accounting through Thumbtack. I was very pleased with with Jay's approach to tax work. He's refreshingly approachable and walks you through your return upon completion of his work. He addressed all my questions and then some. Jay also makes solid use of technology. He files electronically and provides secure portals for documentation and digital copies.

Edward and JR contacted me and quickly went to work. Within a short period of time they converted my books over to QuickBooks Online, brought my books up to date, then filed my tax returns. They went beyond the call of duty by working on tax strategies for the current year while providing anytime reporting with the new online access. JOB WELL DONE ABS!!!!!

Michael, does not come off intimidating and self-important as some Financial Planners and Tax Specialists can. He is very down to earth and explains the "why" in his recommendations. I chose him from an office of 10 Financial Planners, because of his easy communication style, his fast responses to my emails, keeping you informed to the changing market place and really for his overall personality. I like to work with people, I would also enjoy socializing with and Michael is that kind of person. What would make Michael better? I can't think of anything right now.

The past few years I have doing my taxes with Turbo tax, but this year I decided to get professional help. I'm glad that I did. Rahim is very courteous, professional, thorough and reasonably priced. He also showed me how the new tax law will affect my wife and I in 2018 and how we can prepare for the changes. I would definitely recommend Rahim for tax preparation services.

My family needed our taxes completed for the past two years and TMB and Associates were awesome completing this task! I live in Cincinnati and although they are thousands of miles away, the communication about the status of my taxes was great! Very professional, timely and right on budget! Great work done on my taxes that other Tax professionals were not able to compete. I recommend their service to everyone and I will be using their service again!

Paras quickly determined my needs (even though I didn’t have a clue!) Shot off a business tax return to the federal government for all three of our partners, gave each of us a schedule k to file withour personal taxes, and gave recommendations for future compliance- He did this all for what he quoted on-line. I could not be happier with the service he provided!

MIS Tax Pros is great! I owed the IRS a large amount of money. I got an Offer in Compromise approved, well, Keith did it. I'm so relieved that burden is off of my shoulders. I got my life back. If you have a tax problem, you should be sure to call MIS Tax Pros. This company is awesome! Thanks again, Keith, for all of the hard work you did on my tax problem. God bless you!

Darrell at WD Tax Service prepared my 2015 Federal and State Income Tax Return. Darrell was very professional, well versed in what I could and could not deduct and timely. Pricing at WD Tax Service was reasonable and on par to others in the area. With tax season right around the corner I am certain I will contact WD Tax Service and Darrell again.

Allen and his team were very responsive and professional. Before year end, I needed help with Quickbooks clean-up and tax planning. Through his advice, I not only found ways to substantially lower what I would have owed for the year, I now no longer have to worry about how things will turn out in April because he already let me know what my return will be. I would recommend Allen and anyone at his firm to business owners that are looking for the comfort that they are receiving the highest level service and the best advice.

I had such a great experience! I was a little nervous, but the process was made so simple. The customer service was both professional and friendly. My tax professional was knowledgeable, and helped get me an extra $1000! They even have a student discount! I had a very pleasant experience, and would highly recommend!

I really wanted to thank you guys and let you know how much I appreciate all of your help. I had received a notice from the IRS which stated that I owed the government more than $25,000 in back taxes. This was quite shocking and I knew it must be a mistake because most of my taxes get deducted by the employer and I don’t make more than $50,000 per year. You guys really came through in the way you handled the IRS and helped keep them off my back. In the end I had to pay a little over $2,000 for perks and benefits received from employer but the taxes were no way near as high as the IRS made them out to be. 5 star auditing service.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Who can file my taxes?

      Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

      How much does it cost to get taxes done?

      Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

      • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
      • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
      • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
      • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

      Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
