RCP Tax services was great. I got my refund on time, everything went smoothly. They were professional, courteous, friendly. I have no complaints in terms of service. The ONLY reason I gave them 4 stars is due to the condition of the office. It was very, very uncomfortable to sit in the waiting area - the garbage was exposed and overflowing, there were a number of gnats flying around as a result that I and others had to keep swatting away. I don't need the "decor" to be fancy by any means, but I do need cleanliness -- especially since something like doing your taxes means you'll be sitting there for a period of time. The garbage being taken out, the cleaning of the office, opening some windows, air freshener a good deep cleaning and a simple paint job for their office would help a lot.

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.

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!!

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

I found out from my bank that the IRS had levied more than $4500 from my bank account for taxes that I was due. I work at a medium sized company with no other source of income and believed that my taxes were being deducted by the employer from the salary. Turned out that they weren’t and I owed the government an additional $10,000 in taxes for the last three years. The IRS also had an order of wage garnishment on my salary which would have created real financial problems for me and my family. The Legacy Tax Resolution was recommended to me by a co-worker who had been through a similar situation before. They collected the complete record of my salary slips and negotiated an installment plan with the IRS. The payments would be made over a period of one year, which was inconvenient but manageable.

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.
