I found ALTIUS CPA through google and I couldn’t be happier! The staff, specifically Jay, has helped me refile some previous tax returns that had mistakes that I wasn’t aware of (huge relief). Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great CPA!

After being through many local accountants/bookkeepers, I never found the one who knew it all until I met Liz. Many of them didn't deal with online businesses, others simply didn't know Quick Books Online, and others just simply wanted lots of money without even knowing what they were going to get into. By jumping from one bookkeeper to another, my reports became a mess and I fell years behind. It just took one email and literally less than 24 hours when Liz reached out to me. I explained what was needed to be done. Instantly she knew what I was talking about. We went over pricing, and 2 weeks later, she corrected my taxes from years behind, brought my account up to date, and made it clear for me on how to manage my accounts. She kept me up to date day by day on how the process was going. Any questions I had, she was there to respond right away. Very professional and such a nice person. From now on, Liz will be my bookkeeper and the person I will trust with my accounts.

We've been working with Claude for couple years now and he has always been very friendly and professional. We used his accounting services for our Real Estate company and we always had great results. We highly recommend him for any kind of businesses and can guarantee you will not be disappointed! Claude was able to get us information on tax credits in the state to help us with hiring more employees. Basically, he is an accountant and also a business man. He also has referred several clients to us that we are currently working on getting a property for. He usually comes to visit us on Tuesdays and I call that Tuesdays with Claude. Funny as that sounds, we were able to brain storm together on a variety of things even getting financing for our growing and fledgling business. I hope this helps you out. Rock Star

My previous accountant had absconded and left quite a mess. I was extremely fortunate to find Angela. She sorted through the ill-kept records, made sense of everything, and was really quick about it. In short, she rescued me. She's not only very congenial and a pleasure to deal with but is also very business-like, hard-headed and offers excellent business and tax advice. I cannot recommend her too highly.

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.
