This is the first time that I have worked as a freelance designer. I was clueless when it came to my taxes and a nervous reck. So of course I kept putting it off until I felt that I had to do it now. But as I searched for an accountant, every person I contacted after reaching them were not taking on new clients for this tax season. I started to freak out. But then, I found Burhan, and all is well. He was easy to talk to, kind and very calming. He answered all my questions, helped me make good decisions and turned my nightmare to a pleasant evening. He also reveiwed my 2014 taxes and found me more money!! I feel so confidant in his skills that I will be going back to him to do my quarterly taxes.

Mr. Arauz was referred to me by one of the customer reps at my bank. I was on the board of directors for the condominium's HOA and we were in great need of a tax consultant. Humberto was there for me the SAME DAY that the lady at Chase bank called him. He got in touch with me that afternoon, we made an appt. and he not only took care of us then, he has been our tax man ever since. We also use him for our personal taxes. I cannot say enough about Humberto! His professionalism and personal attention deserves a lot more than only 5 stars!! He has even come to our home to discuss tax matters with us! Who does that anymore!? I strongly recommend Humberto for the many services he has to offer. He is very knowledgeable in all areas .

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

Got an audit for my business and personal taxes. The IRA said I owed $287,000 back taxes. Went to Mrs McAfee and she defended me and won. IRS actually owed me $4200 when she was done. It do not get any better than that. She is a fighter. Try her

Accountant was not clear of his explanations or his intention. We had a difficult time with communication because of the language differences. He spoke very broken English with a heavy accent. (it was hard for me to understand him). He told me the consultation was free, that is the only reason I was willing to take the meeting. He did not tell me when the consultation changed for being a consult to actual working for me. I never asked him to review my 2017 tax returns, he said he needed to see them to get a clearer idea of what I needed. I received an unexpected bill.

Kamal Verma has been our tax accountant since 2005. We always recommend her company to our friends, family and associates. Her fees are reasonable and she always does her best to save us money. We own a small internet retail business and have been struggling with a very low profit margin, especially since the economic downturn in 2008. Recently, with escalating energy prices, our product costs sky-rocketed by over 25%. Kamal, as a valued consultant, diligently strives to help us through these hard times, by suggesting strategies and making certain we are monitoring our cash flow correctly. In short, Kamal has essentially become a valued "business partner" and a dear friend.

Lazaro prepared our taxes and got us a GREAT refund. Very knowledgeable, personable Christian man. I highly recommend Lazaro Urrutia. He even offered to review our 2 previous Tax Returns for errors, free of charge...unless he finds a refund. Sounds Fair to ME. His fees ARE reasonable TOO! We will continue to use Lazaro as our Tax Preparer. 5- 2- 17

Ms. Emilia McAfee was very professional in providing her services for a difficult set of IRS issues. I knew what to expect and by using her negotiation skills she resolved an enormous burden that had been impacting my life for a long time. I have and will recommend using her services in the future. Thank you for your tenacity and persistence in dealing with our multiple issues to reach an equitable solution.

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.
