I was extremely pleased with the tax service provided by Jimmy. As soon as he received my tax information, my return was completed within 24 hours. He is fast, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. He thoroughly answered all of my questions and left me with no doubt that I chose the correct person to complete my tax return. I would recommend him to anyone.

Richard is a true professional and knows his stuff! My husband and I came to RCP Tax with what seemed like an insurmountable amount of tax issues. Richard was straight forward and willing to work with us every step of the way. Although we still have a ways to go, Richard has put both of us at ease, and we're definitely sleeping a little easier because of his help. If you have tax issues RCP Tax Services is the way to go!

Larry is awesome. I'm so happy we found him. Last year I had the worst customer service experience with our tax preparer. Ironically, he was a referral from a close friend so we would have expected better service. I was chasing him around and he was non-responsive. Larry was the complete opposite. He responded right away and even visited us at our home on a Sunday. I have two small children and my husband is usually only home after 8pm on weekdays, so I really appreciated that extra service. He also got us the best refund we've had in the past five years. Amazing. We will definitely be using him moving forward and highly recommend to everyone we know. Thank you, Larry! We appreciate you!

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!

Thank you for your help in my IRS audit regarding payroll taxes for my company. You revised my corporate and individual taxes for the last 3 years and ended up with a big outlay of cash for both my personal and corporate tax returns. You saved me from a lot of penalties and interest charges, as well as bringing me through my personal audit of which I got a refund when it was completed. I have known you for 3 years and my biggest regret is not knowing you 10 years sooner. I would have saved a lot of money wasted in taxes over the years.

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!!

I was really impressed by Matt Vitelli's professionalism, from timely and clear communication to concise guidelines to speedy delivery. Matt was very thorough in outlining precisely what he needed from me to file my taxes; making sure I had all my bases covered, including the infamous health tax. He gave detailed and prompt answers to all my questions while exhibiting profound knowledge of his field. The turnaround was super fast, once he had everything he needed to file on my behalf. I will definitely be back next year. Highly recommend! PS: super reasonable prices.

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.
