Brian did an incredible job on a complicated joint tax return (including foreign income, several 1099's, etc.) and was highly responsive throughout the process. Overall a great experience. I'd thoroughly recommend him to anyone

George took over both my bookkeeping and tax preparation. We had a lot of catching up to do and George was focused, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, and timely. I could not have reconciled all those years without him! I highly recommend George for anyone's personal or business bookkeeping/tax prep needs.

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.

The past few years I have doing my taxes with Turbo tax, but this year I decided to get professional help. I'm glad that I did. Rahim is very courteous, professional, thorough and reasonably priced. He also showed me how the new tax law will affect my wife and I in 2018 and how we can prepare for the changes. I would definitely recommend Rahim for tax preparation services.

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!

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.

    I really wanted to thank you guys and let you know how much I appreciate all of your help. I had received a notice from the IRS which stated that I owed the government more than $25,000 in back taxes. This was quite shocking and I knew it must be a mistake because most of my taxes get deducted by the employer and I don’t make more than $50,000 per year. You guys really came through in the way you handled the IRS and helped keep them off my back. In the end I had to pay a little over $2,000 for perks and benefits received from employer but the taxes were no way near as high as the IRS made them out to be. 5 star auditing service.

          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.  

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
