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.

Excellent financial advice and planning. I am very happy with the direction of the investments that Michael has recommended. Added bonus of tax preparation at no additional cost is just fabulous. I really appreciate Michael's no nonsense approach with easy to understand explanations of the types of investment options and his well rounded approach to both long term and short term with considerations for low/medium/high risk opportunities. His continued watch of the economy and financial atmosphere is very comforting

This is a comment on the service I received from Shanaswa Inc. The best way to comment is to say they are miracle workers! I had some issues with previous year taxes for both business and personal because of some mistakes I had made. The service I received was excellent; all the steps were explained to me and the costs were very reasonable. What also was very helpful was that they came to me and did not require me to go to their office. I will certainly go to this company for any future tax issues I have. HIGHLY recommend this organization. Thank you, Nirali!

Darrell at WD Tax Service prepared my 2015 Federal and State Income Tax Return. Darrell was very professional, well versed in what I could and could not deduct and timely. Pricing at WD Tax Service was reasonable and on par to others in the area. With tax season right around the corner I am certain I will contact WD Tax Service and Darrell again.

I have used TACCT Taxes service for several years. I really like the way Felicia takes care of my taxes. She is thorough and fast. I am self-employed and she knows the tax laws and helps me get the best advantages being an independent contractor. I would recommend her to anyone as an efficient and trusting tax preparer.

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.

    About

    Mission Statement: Aero & Marine Tax Professionals works in the highly specialized area of California and sales tax law. That is all we do. We provide a professional, highly-specialized focus on this one aspect of law. Our firm has dedicated itself to assisting taxpayers in legally avoiding sales tax by administering a program that helps them to support a claim for exemption. Additionally, we are in our second decade of working with CPAs and attorneys, assisting their clients with new acquisitions as well as filing petitions and claims for refund and audit defense. In our continuing effort to keep you informed of the truth about taxes, the following excerpt is very important to your survival. No one should feel guilty about exercising their legal rights. "Over and over again, the courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible." Our mission statement at Aero & Marine Tax Professionals is to uphold and defend the following court ruling: "The legal right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted." -- Supreme Court of the United States Gregory v. Helvering 293 U.S. 465; (1934) While some misguided politicians and uninformed public may clamor about "loopholes," the truth is that our firm defends your rights to legally avoid taxes and will continue to fight for the rights of all citizens to minimize the taxes they pay. The service we provide is more than legal! Judge Learned Hand said it best: "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes. Over and over again, the courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike, and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands." -- Federal Appellate Judge Learned Hand The above statement is our operating basis when it comes to defending taxpayers. Armed with an understanding of the sales-and-use tax laws, Aero & Marine Tax Professionals has created strategies that have helped our clients legally avoid hundreds of millions of dollars of sales and use tax.

    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.
