I have used a CPA to prepare my tax returns for several years, but this time I used Avi Gadre, an IRS Enrolled Agent, and couldn't be more pleased. Avi is efficient, a good communicator, and easy to do business with. In addition, his fees are competitive and, from my point of view, well-justified. I recommend him without reservation.

Kathleen was willing to take our returns within a few days before the tax deadline. The 2015 refund she got for us exceeded the amounts I got from using Turbo Tax by 90%. She also helped us retrieve additional refunds due us from previous overpayments to both the feds and state of California.

Filed my first ever 1040 tax form with her! She is the best. Made sure what kind of forms I had so I can file it into my 1040 form. I highly recommend her!

Extremely friendly and professional. Bob was a big help to me. I used someone else for the past 10 years but she is not doing taxes any more. I was very concerned about using someone I didn't know, but Bob was a God send. I feel safe giving my information to Bob and will continue to use his company from know on. I would recommend him to anyone that needs bookkeeping and tax preparation. Denita Harris

Paras quickly determined my needs (even though I didn’t have a clue!) Shot off a business tax return to the federal government for all three of our partners, gave each of us a schedule k to file withour personal taxes, and gave recommendations for future compliance- He did this all for what he quoted on-line. I could not be happier with the service he provided!

We needed some assistance with quickbooking and some knowledge on how a small business should ideally be operating to fetch some positive revenues. Raymond, the CPA here, turned out to be an enormous help for us. He is a phenomenal professional who reaches out to ease your life. It was a huge relief for us since his expertise even extended to tax preparation and comprehensive understanding regarding the whole finance department. Thank you for the assistance provided.

Excellent financial advice and planning. I am very happy with the direction of the investments that Michael has recommended. Added bonus of tax preparation at no additional cost is just fabulous. I really appreciate Michael's no nonsense approach with easy to understand explanations of the types of investment options and his well rounded approach to both long term and short term with considerations for low/medium/high risk opportunities. His continued watch of the economy and financial atmosphere is very comforting

Ms. Smith provided excellent tax preparation services. Efficient , yet personable ,reasonably priced in a pleasant office, she made an otherwise unpleasant chore, enjoyable . I will be back. Draw back: difficult parking situation , all metered , with street sweeping restrictions . Building access is also restricted with insufficient directoy.

I had a strange set of employment circumstances that required someone to answer some in-depth questions for me. I put up a post saying I needed questions answered... and promptly got a bunch of quotes to do my taxes (which isn’t what I needed). Chuck obviously read my post, gave me some quick answers via writing and we set up a time to speak further via phone. He was great... on time... and knew how to help me better understand my tax situation. He’ll be my first call when I need help in this area again.

I had such a great experience! I was a little nervous, but the process was made so simple. The customer service was both professional and friendly. My tax professional was knowledgeable, and helped get me an extra $1000! They even have a student discount! I had a very pleasant experience, and would highly recommend!

    Bruce is great. He listens to my problems and always has a great recommendation for solving them. He helped us get our accounting system installed, HR systems in place, set up our company, prepared taxes and as we have grown, helped with complex business issues. Would not hesitate to recommend Bruce for any business help. He's not cheap, but well worth the price.

    Nicole is amazing. She really knows her stuff. I was so amazed by her strong knowledge of financial tax preparation that she not only helped me gain a ton of money back on my tax refund that I recommended her to my friends and family that she helped also. We are so pleased to have NICOLE as our tax preparer and friend. You can't go wrong with her. She is very sweet and financially intelligent. She goes above and beyond to get the job done right. I look forward to filing my income taxes again next year with her.

    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.
