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!

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.

I was getting a little nervous with the way TurboT was "making things simple" without explaining more about our refund. Patrick went out of his way to make time and prepare our taxes in a way that I could understand them. Would highly recommend him to anyone who could use a qualified CPA.

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!

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.

Tammy has been doing my taxes for several years. As a Realtor, it is important to have a tax preparer that knows all the rules and deductions so that I can concentrate on providing my clients with excellent service instead of worrying about tax time. Tammy makes the process painless, she tells me what I will need and tax day is a breeze! I used to due my taxes with TurboTax but was worried that I would miss things or that I would deduct things I was not allowed. I tried a CPA and that was a nightmare - he was not clear on what I needed. Tammy, on the other hand, is clear on what is needed and a pleasure to work with!

Brian is extremely well versed in tax preparation. I am international, living in California. I have investments and assets in Canada and Brian knew exactly how to deal with everything. I have utmost confidence in his knowledge of tax law. He answers in a timely manner with all correspondence. I have never personally met him but I have no worries about his abilities. At first I was hesitant to give a complete stranger all my personal information. I have had him do my taxes for the second year now and he has performed once again as a true professional. Highly recommend. Thanks Brian!!

      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.
