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.

Mr. Nagy reviewed a Tax Board letter, prepared two years of (late) Tax Returns and provided advice and a referral on an investment matter. HMr. Nagy was at all times professional, timely, communicative, courteous, patient and clear in what was needed. He completed the work within a very short period of time leaving a good margin in which to submit the required documents to the IRS and the State Tax Board. Mr. Nagy traveled some distance to my home for an initial meeting and to gather documents and repeated this when it was time to review the prepared returns and sign papers. In between he kept me appraised of each step and any items that were needed by e-mail. I was able to scan further documents that were required. Upon completion, Mr. Nagy provided cover letters for the Tax Returns and a clear statement of account. The work was more involved than originally anticipated therefore the cost was higher than estimated; I paid it happily. Mr. Nagy's level of service and professionalism was worth every penny. I will continue to use Mr. Nagy for all my future tax preparation. I hope it is a long time until he retires, this quality of service would be difficult to surpass.

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.

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 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.
