I stumbled onto Focus Accounting Firm through Thumbtack and hired Jay due to his responsiveness and willingness to help me in my situation. My husband and I usually prepare our own taxes but this year proved to be more complicated and challenging. Jay helped us out immensely and now I am so relieved. He was thorough yet handled the work quickly and efficiently for a reasonable price! We will be calling him again! Thanks Jay!

Love working with this accounting agency. I always handled my own taxes, but this year was more complicated. Tax preparation quote was less than I expected. I was really stressed getting my taxes done. ABS really took of care me and very professional. I will let ABS continue to service my accounting needs.

The past few years I have doing my taxes with Turbo tax, but this year I decided to get professional help. I'm glad that I did. Rahim is very courteous, professional, thorough and reasonably priced. He also showed me how the new tax law will affect my wife and I in 2018 and how we can prepare for the changes. I would definitely recommend Rahim for tax preparation services.

Ms. Smith provided excellent tax preparation services. Efficient , yet personable ,reasonably priced in a pleasant office, she made an otherwise unpleasant chore, enjoyable . I will be back. Draw back: difficult parking situation , all metered , with street sweeping restrictions . Building access is also restricted with insufficient directoy.

Paras quickly determined my needs (even though I didn’t have a clue!) Shot off a business tax return to the federal government for all three of our partners, gave each of us a schedule k to file withour personal taxes, and gave recommendations for future compliance- He did this all for what he quoted on-line. I could not be happier with the service he provided!

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 rarely write online reviews. However, my experience with Allen preparing my tax returns has been so positive that I want to make sure everyone knows. My interaction with Allen has been exemplary. Allen has prepared tax returns for our family for many years with complete satisfaction. He is extremely knowledgeable and articulate in explaining tax complexities and nuances that can be difficult to understand. More importantly, he takes the time to understand our situation every year and genuinely respects our concerns. As a client, Allen returns all my phone calls promptly and takes the time to explain and review all my inquiries. His customer service is stellar!!! I would highly recommend Allen, and in fact, I have already done so. ~Jan T

Jeannene Glass is very wonderful to work with. She helped me and my Girlfriend with my Girlfriends tax return this year, and also helped us to understand what we need to do, Tax wise, in starting our new business. She was efficient, thorough, knowledgeable and very kind throughout the whole process (even with us asking many questions). We look forward to working with Jeannene more in the future.

I had such a great experience! I was a little nervous, but the process was made so simple. The customer service was both professional and friendly. My tax professional was knowledgeable, and helped get me an extra $1000! They even have a student discount! I had a very pleasant experience, and would highly recommend!

I really wanted to thank you guys and let you know how much I appreciate all of your help. I had received a notice from the IRS which stated that I owed the government more than $25,000 in back taxes. This was quite shocking and I knew it must be a mistake because most of my taxes get deducted by the employer and I don’t make more than $50,000 per year. You guys really came through in the way you handled the IRS and helped keep them off my back. In the end I had to pay a little over $2,000 for perks and benefits received from employer but the taxes were no way near as high as the IRS made them out to be. 5 star auditing service.

      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.
