John saved me thousands of dollars on my taxes compared to what tax preparation software calculated for me. He took the time to ask me about the details of my family's complex situation (we just relocated and I do consulting work) to find the best rate. His experience shone through and I will definitely be using his services again next year.

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!

Angela Ledwedge is very thoughtful, tenacious, and one to offer alternatives when it coming to tax planning and preparation. I have a somewhat complex return to prepare and she manages to find more ways for me to keep what I've made :-). Have been a customer for several years and plan on going back!!

    Was recommended Josh for my taxes through a friend and used him for my 2014 filing and he was great! He actually found deductions that I was able to take advantage of and get back more for my taxes than if i would have tried to do it myself online. I own two houses, student loans and a small business. He was competitively priced and had a super quick turnaround. Will recommend him to my other friends! Thank you!

    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.


    I currently file individual federal/state 1040 EZs, practice tax law and applications, process amendments and extensions, and also work for H&R Block.

    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.
