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.

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.

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.

There's alot to be said for tax and financial planning professionals. One if them being, they are a dime and a dozen, pushing life insurance, and don't take the time to really get to the heart of the issue for you. Well I can safely say that wasn't the case with Crossroads. They sat me down and treated me like family. There was no push for life insurance in plan, they had acknowledged a need and were able to refer an outside professional. I was so happy with my experience, I even paid to have my mom to have her plan done.

He is extremely professional. I wish I could say the same for my first visit, I was late. But he has been on time, punctual and informed me every step of the way. In fact, he is a math guru clearly by his credentials. However, he puts you at ease, asked me on two occasions to call him Edward. His office is in Glendale, has assigned spaces for his clients. He is low key and manages to minimize or reduce your stress. This is of particular importance to me. I had several surgeries last year, a great deal of medical expenses and was being forced by a long term carrier to apply for Social Security, dealing with loss of insurance coverage and Medicare and an employer's records of my Flexible Savings Arrangement. I found him on Thumbtack and was searching for an alternative to H&R (Hated & Rejected) finally for the excessive amounts they charge. My price was as quoted and in my belief Edward Yousefian, CPA,APC. is well worth the money. I believe he has a heart shows compassion and sees his involvement as a new and growing relationship. I give him 6 thumbs up thumbtack.

After trying other tax professionals, I found Emil’s firm through a local newspaper ad around five years ago. This was when I was simply looking for someone who had experience representing corporations during tax season. His knowledge and energizing attitude made me feel comfortable in using his services. Today, Emil has become, for me, a talented resource for making all my business decisions. His creative techniques and quick responsiveness has been very profitable for my corporation, which is why I’ve come to depend on him for much of my tax and financial planning needs.

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.
