RCP Tax services was great. I got my refund on time, everything went smoothly. They were professional, courteous, friendly. I have no complaints in terms of service. The ONLY reason I gave them 4 stars is due to the condition of the office. It was very, very uncomfortable to sit in the waiting area - the garbage was exposed and overflowing, there were a number of gnats flying around as a result that I and others had to keep swatting away. I don't need the "decor" to be fancy by any means, but I do need cleanliness -- especially since something like doing your taxes means you'll be sitting there for a period of time. The garbage being taken out, the cleaning of the office, opening some windows, air freshener a good deep cleaning and a simple paint job for their office would help a lot.

Larry is awesome. I'm so happy we found him. Last year I had the worst customer service experience with our tax preparer. Ironically, he was a referral from a close friend so we would have expected better service. I was chasing him around and he was non-responsive. Larry was the complete opposite. He responded right away and even visited us at our home on a Sunday. I have two small children and my husband is usually only home after 8pm on weekdays, so I really appreciated that extra service. He also got us the best refund we've had in the past five years. Amazing. We will definitely be using him moving forward and highly recommend to everyone we know. Thank you, Larry! We appreciate you!

I just started my accounting needs with AAA and Kamal. So far she has met every need that I have as well as taking the time to explain the tax needs of my company. I know several CPAs can perform the job but Kamal takes the time to explain the Why! Which is so valuable to me as a new business owner.

There's alot to be said for tax and financial planning professionals. One if them being, they are a dime and a dozen, pushing life insurance, and don't take the time to really get to the heart of the issue for you. Well I can safely say that wasn't the case with Crossroads. They sat me down and treated me like family. There was no push for life insurance in plan, they had acknowledged a need and were able to refer an outside professional. I was so happy with my experience, I even paid to have my mom to have her plan done.

Mr. Finkelstein was very professional. Our taxes were a mess and he cleaned it all up. He was thorough, accurate and attentive to detail. Years ago, we had filed our taxes with other popular tax preparers over and over again, and never received any refunds that we were supposed to get. Well, Patrick got us the refunds we were entitled to and supposed to receive. We can't say enough about Patrick, he is outstanding, smart, well organized and had a warm and professional demeanor. We highly recommend him and will use him again. Thank you Patrick!

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.
