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.

Humberto was very knowledgeable about tax rules and processes. He was great at explaining things and letting us know what could be tax deductible. He is personable and makes you feel very comfortable. We were not happy with our previous tax person and we're so glad that we found Humberto. We will definitley be going back to him for next year's tax preparation.

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.

I was extremely satisfied with the service that I received from Vanessa @ Bizie Ladie. She was very professional & definitely knows the most efficient ways to get court documents prepared & filed. Her work is top notch. I even had an consultation with an attorney & after reviewing my case he was very impressed with Vanessa's document preparation. Going to court can be intimidating & stressful, but with Vanessa's assistance with my documents I was able to reverse a prior decision that was made against me. I can't thank her enough for all her hard work & how thorough she handled my particular forms. I would recommend her services to anyone without hesitation if they ever need assistance with preparation & filing of any legal documents. S.S.

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.

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

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.
