Burhan is a pro with integrity! I was so happy with him that he did such an excellent job preparing my tax income, so I offered to pay him more, and he declined. He took only what he initially quoted me. He's truly amazing and I'll definitely come back next year and have Burhan take care of my income tax.

Larry made the tax prep process painless and I had a couple scenarios that made mine a little more complicated. He was very timely with scheduling me, made sure I was prepared before hand and was very friendly and professional. Well worth the cost and highly recommended.

Victor was referred to me by a family member a couple of years ago. And ever since then I've had him prepare my taxes. He is very knowledgeable in what he does and gets me the best refund. He is polite, professional, and what I like best is I don't have to wait sitting in a office to see him he comes to me. He is up front with me, which is exactly what i needed to hear. I highly recommend Victor.

My tax preparation was not your usual 1040 filing single. Daniel Wright DID NOT charge me extra for being self employed and my wife as a w2 wage earner. H&R Block and others would have nickle and dimed me for the several 1099's I presented including multiple write offs, and 5 dependents that he meticulously inputted. End of story... we are happy to have used Daniel for his service. We would definitely use him again + recommend his service to our friends and family.

Rafael was absolutely incredible!! He prepared my tax returns this year. He answered all of my questions and really broke down the entire process so it was easy to understand. He was very accommodating with my schedule. Being a Realtor, I had a lot of items to write off. He educated me on what I can & cant write off and gave me tips for different ways I can keep track throughout the year. I waited until the last minute to file my taxes & he was able to get them done on time. I recommend him to everyone I know & will definitely be using him every year!

My taxes were a mess this year--far more complicated than any other year--and Ray walked me through all of it, explaining everything and putting me at ease. He was very good at responding to emails or phone calls, even during the busy week before the tax deadline. Will definitely use him next year and recommend him to friends.

Jasi was so very helpful in filing our tax returns in the US this year. As US citizens living abroad it's impossible to keep up with the tax code changes and we were not happy with the support from our previous firm. This was our first year with Jasi and we will use his services next year.

Raymond was very responsive and scheduled an initial office consultation to go over our taxes. He was able to get into a detailed analysis within minutes of seeing our previous year’s tax returns, and demonstrated a high degree of skill and communication. We were also very impressed with their inter-office collegiality. We really felt that Excellent Financial Solutions’ colleagues enjoy working together and do not work in a silo just preparing their own client’s taxes. We are very much looking forward to working with them this year!

I have worked with the J.Cole and his team for a number of needs for the past five years or so originally getting some individual tax services done and tax preparation for a small LLC started with a few close friends. Eventually we sought their counsel for marketing, business planning & credit development to take our small business to the next level. Working with the VER team we had a great amount of success. Unfortunately one of our partners of the business in charge of finance wasn't exact on the up and up and we all found ourselves in career transitions. At this time I went from a business client back to an individual client working with the VER Team putting together a professional resume, cover letter and doing a bit of career coaching. Finding a new position didn't happen overnight. Still I was consistently complimented for my resume and I'm positive that made a huge difference landing some key interviews which eventually lead to a great position.

    I have to start by saying that I've been in business for over twenty years and have gone through several accountants and was Hesetent but after I met Armen I know I was in good hands. I have never met anyone as professional, honest and carrying about my business as this guy. You can truly feel he cares and knows what he is talking about. Three years later and I still feel the same and thanks to his knowledge my business is doing so much better

    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.
