Larry made the tax prep process painless and I had a couple scenarios that made mine a little more complicated. He was very timely with scheduling me, made sure I was prepared before hand and was very friendly and professional. Well worth the cost and highly recommended.

Accountant was not clear of his explanations or his intention. We had a difficult time with communication because of the language differences. He spoke very broken English with a heavy accent. (it was hard for me to understand him). He told me the consultation was free, that is the only reason I was willing to take the meeting. He did not tell me when the consultation changed for being a consult to actual working for me. I never asked him to review my 2017 tax returns, he said he needed to see them to get a clearer idea of what I needed. I received an unexpected bill.

Raymond was very responsive and scheduled an initial office consultation to go over our taxes. He was able to get into a detailed analysis within minutes of seeing our previous year’s tax returns, and demonstrated a high degree of skill and communication. We were also very impressed with their inter-office collegiality. We really felt that Excellent Financial Solutions’ colleagues enjoy working together and do not work in a silo just preparing their own client’s taxes. We are very much looking forward to working with them this year!

After trying other tax professionals, I found Emil’s firm through a local newspaper ad around five years ago. This was when I was simply looking for someone who had experience representing corporations during tax season. His knowledge and energizing attitude made me feel comfortable in using his services. Today, Emil has become, for me, a talented resource for making all my business decisions. His creative techniques and quick responsiveness has been very profitable for my corporation, which is why I’ve come to depend on him for much of my tax and financial planning needs.

Brian is extremely well versed in tax preparation. I am international, living in California. I have investments and assets in Canada and Brian knew exactly how to deal with everything. I have utmost confidence in his knowledge of tax law. He answers in a timely manner with all correspondence. I have never personally met him but I have no worries about his abilities. At first I was hesitant to give a complete stranger all my personal information. I have had him do my taxes for the second year now and he has performed once again as a true professional. Highly recommend. Thanks Brian!!

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.
