I do, now! For the first time I'm looking forward to next year's tax time. Tina is well organized and very knowledgeable on tax preparing. She also made sure I have the tools for a successful 2017 tax year. She made me feel important and I didn't feel rushed through my appointment. Her fee is competitive. I left with the confidence that we submitted a return that was fair with every advantage owed to me. I highly recommend you hire Tina. I will for many years to come.

Absolutely wonderful! This is what I have been looking for, someone who will sit down with me and go over deductions one by one and suggest others that I left out because I had no idea they existed. This is what a professional tax preparer should give to clients. Extremely satisfied even though the price listed was twice as high as listed, but since this was our first tax prep, maybe next time it will be less since I now understand many items better and can submit more succinctly next time.

I am new to the area so I used Thumbtack to pick a Tax expert. I had an error that I recently discovered in my 2016 Taxes that I submitted via Turbotax. In 5 minutes, John Brodsky solved my problem and also advised me on my 2017 Taxes and on the new 2018 Tax changes. He will visit you at your home, his prices and expertise is unbelievable. From now on, John will get all my Tax business and save me some headaches. I recommend his work as outstanding. signed Bill in Encinitas

All around great experience. Expensive lawyers will do everything for you and charge you crazy numbers. If you’re prepared to do the work, this is an excellent option instead of a divorce attorney. Lisa’s many years of experience will guide you through the pitfalls of processing your divorce. I ask a lot of questions and can be a demanding client. When Lisa didn’t have an answer, which was rare, she got the information to me expeditiously. I interviewed several people before choosing Lisa. Look no further for your divorce processing needs.

"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."

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!!

Mike literally saved the day for me with his Excel skills. I was asked to provide a summary of proposed merit increases for over 1500 employees for the Vice President of Operations to review and approve. I was handed a spreadsheet that was 87 columns wide. My task was to summarize the data by division, territory, and functional group so the Vice President could see, by division and functional group, the proposed merit increases versus the budget provided. I sent the worksheet to Mike for help. He created several complex calculations to determine the budget, total the proposed increases, and the budget versus actual analysis. The calculations were complex in that there were 6 different variables to consider. Once the calculations were verified, he needed to create a dynamic summary of the data (several pivot tables) so the VP could easily drill into the details he needed to approve the recommendations. Mike did all of this in a day!!! It would have taken me days to create and validate the calculations. Thanks to Mike, we got the correct information out on time. Furthermore... I was able to use what he did to build a repeatable template for future use! They were so impressed, they wanted to repeat the process for the Executive team.

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!

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.
