John was very responsive and available to address my questions and concerns regarding current and future tax return filings. He made several recommendations and was completely transparent and unselfish in finding the most cost-effective option, which in my case, was to go back to my current preparer and ask him to explore the changes. He is conscientious and I highly recommend him for your tax and accounting needs.

cannot recommend Monica highly enough! I would give 10 starts if I could. My returns (2 years) were complicated due to unemployment, contract work, cashed out 401k, new job, new house and lots of other crazy complications. She looked under every leaf and turned over every stone to get the most out of my tax returns. She is friendly, professional, non-judgemental and just an overall great gal! She is worth every penny and you will NOT be disappointed!

Maureen did a great job in helping/explaining me the process of taking care of my wife's quarterly estimated taxes including her self employment taxes. Through the process I was able to verify Maureen's knowledge of the tax code. Her pricing is very reasonable and she is very responsive to your needs: a great value! I definitely recommend MTEA TAX & ACCOUNTING and will be a returning customer.

I run a small retail shop and couldn’t file the tax returns for 2016. The IRS agents visited my store and claimed that I owed the government taxes worth more than $30,000. They also issued me a notice of 30 days for payment of the dues. This was a very shocking experience for me as there was no way I could pay that much in taxes on such short term notice. One of my store’s regular customers worked for Legacy Tax Resolution and he recommended using their service. Their auditors examined the complete record of my books and they negotiated with the IRS. They were able to get the taxes reduced to $8,000, which is a lot more manageable. I am very thankful for their help.

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.
