Divorce is never easy, but Lisa Beal proved to be the perfect balance of affordability and professionalism! After a brief consultation, she got right down to business preparing all the necessary forms and guiding me through the entire process. In the end, I was able to recover the personal property that my estranged wife refused to relinquish. Mission Accomplished!

"Jose did a great job on my elderly fathers taxes with very little input from me. He also made some suggestions that will help with his financial management in the future. I highly recommended Neza for your tax preparation needs 5 star all the way. Thanks Jose."

I am a small business owner.I am good at making the money, but balancing my checkbook and coming up with an accurate budget is not me! For many years I wasn't very organized when it came to my finances. Because of the quality of the work that San Diego Business Essentials does, my CPA says that I save far more money each year on my taxes, because of the quality of work and eye for detail that Krista and her company provide.

I was looking for a tax professional online when I tumbled in the thumbtack website and was offered a quick quote based on a limited information required. I was then contacted by Joe who gave me an initial quote. Joe was very professional, promptly responded to all queries and finished the work within a week just as promised. I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone looking for a professional who does what is required at a very reasonable price.

    DescI am an entrepreneur with two businesses. Shirley has not only help me stay organized, but she educated me on tax and business accounting. She was patient with me and turned my shoe box of receipts into tax day ready forms. My tax preparer was totally elated I was so organized and because Shirley had itemized my deductions correctly, it helped me get a $6,000+ refund check! I would never been able to do it without her! I am no longer afraid of tax time!! Shirley, you are amazing!! ribe your experience with ERA Accounting Services.

      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.
