I have used a CPA to prepare my tax returns for several years, but this time I used Avi Gadre, an IRS Enrolled Agent, and couldn't be more pleased. Avi is efficient, a good communicator, and easy to do business with. In addition, his fees are competitive and, from my point of view, well-justified. I recommend him without reservation.

Kathleen was willing to take our returns within a few days before the tax deadline. The 2015 refund she got for us exceeded the amounts I got from using Turbo Tax by 90%. She also helped us retrieve additional refunds due us from previous overpayments to both the feds and state of California.

I stumbled onto Focus Accounting Firm through Thumbtack and hired Jay due to his responsiveness and willingness to help me in my situation. My husband and I usually prepare our own taxes but this year proved to be more complicated and challenging. Jay helped us out immensely and now I am so relieved. He was thorough yet handled the work quickly and efficiently for a reasonable price! We will be calling him again! Thanks Jay!

George took over both my bookkeeping and tax preparation. We had a lot of catching up to do and George was focused, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, and timely. I could not have reconciled all those years without him! I highly recommend George for anyone's personal or business bookkeeping/tax prep needs.

Ms. Smith provided excellent tax preparation services. Efficient , yet personable ,reasonably priced in a pleasant office, she made an otherwise unpleasant chore, enjoyable . I will be back. Draw back: difficult parking situation , all metered , with street sweeping restrictions . Building access is also restricted with insufficient directoy.

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.

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!

Last summer, I looked for a firm to address our small business tax issue. I tried a Chamber search tool and I tried Thumbtack. Although Cano Accounting was the result of my Thumbtack research, I made the huge mistake of selecting the firm on the Chamber list that online, only appeared to have the experienced staff to address the issues. Although they were quick to take my retainer check, they started to work only after months of inactivity. They worked for 1 month and then decided they were too busy to continue my compliance project or keep to our written Agreement. Their bookkeeper appeared competent, but was not available to take on my project when I was available for reviewing records. Frustrated, I released the first firm and contacted Mr. Cano in the hopes they were more professional. Days later, Mr. Cano and his staff competently reviewed my tax compliance status, and we agreed on a scope of work, schedule and labor rate that was very reasonable. Within 2 weeks, Mr. Cano and staff had gone through years of bank records, and brought my firm closer to full tax compliance. My firm has engaged Cano Accounting for their professionalism, and for the long-term to ensure the successful growth of my environmental management firm.

I rarely write online reviews. However, my experience with Allen preparing my tax returns has been so positive that I want to make sure everyone knows. My interaction with Allen has been exemplary. Allen has prepared tax returns for our family for many years with complete satisfaction. He is extremely knowledgeable and articulate in explaining tax complexities and nuances that can be difficult to understand. More importantly, he takes the time to understand our situation every year and genuinely respects our concerns. As a client, Allen returns all my phone calls promptly and takes the time to explain and review all my inquiries. His customer service is stellar!!! I would highly recommend Allen, and in fact, I have already done so. ~Jan T

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!

Jose does not provide simple accounting services, he becomes your CFO. Absolutely amazing on how much he knows, and how familiar he is with all ins and outs of banking world. If you need simple accounting services, yea he can take care of you. Just like 100 other CPAs. But if you are serious about growing your business, creating banking relationships and opening doors that were previously bolted shut for you, he is your man. His goal is not get you the biggest refund and send you on your way until the next tax season. Instead he will plan with you your 1 year and your 3 year plan, and from a financial side, actually make that happen. And hey, if you are really interested about that tax refund, or (not) paying taxes in general, you want to give him a call. And I'll tell you why: You know how companies like Apple make 100 billion a year but pay 300 dollars in taxes? They have guys like Jose working for them. Enough said. If you want to pay taxes like Apple, dial his number.

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.

    Bruce is great. He listens to my problems and always has a great recommendation for solving them. He helped us get our accounting system installed, HR systems in place, set up our company, prepared taxes and as we have grown, helped with complex business issues. Would not hesitate to recommend Bruce for any business help. He's not cheap, but well worth the price.

    We first got in touch with this firm when our business was facing an external audit by the IRS. The tax authorities believed that our firm had been under reporting the income based on the inventory turnover. Legacy Tax Resolution helped us out by going through the accounts and negotiating with the tax authorities on our behalf. We have been using the firm since then, for over five years now. We have a strong partnership with them and they have always provided us with great solutions in terms of taxation and assisted when financing was needed. We have never had any problems with IRS in the last five years and all our returns get filed timely. The tax returns get filed months in advance of the tax filing deadline. We would recommend their tax consultancy.

    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.  

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
