Burhan is a pro with integrity! I was so happy with him that he did such an excellent job preparing my tax income, so I offered to pay him more, and he declined. He took only what he initially quoted me. He's truly amazing and I'll definitely come back next year and have Burhan take care of my income tax.

Humberto was very knowledgeable about tax rules and processes. He was great at explaining things and letting us know what could be tax deductible. He is personable and makes you feel very comfortable. We were not happy with our previous tax person and we're so glad that we found Humberto. We will definitley be going back to him for next year's tax preparation.

I had only a few days left before October 15th to submit my taxes after receiving an extension last April. Richard Ponce gave me an excellent first estimate thru Thumbtack. I called him and set up an appointment for the following day. His family has a long history of Income Tax preparations and I was charmed by the no frill simple office that has been in his family for many years. After just minutes into our meeting and after giving Richard the outline of my situation I knew that he would easily be able to help me out and do so quickly. Richard has a calm confident way about him which put me at ease immediately. Just a few short hours later my return was filed. The fee quoted to me in his initial estimate never changed. I left happy and relieved and confident that I would be back for my next tax return in April! Thank you Richard! I highly recommend contacting Richard Ponce for your tax return needs!

My tax preparation was not your usual 1040 filing single. Daniel Wright DID NOT charge me extra for being self employed and my wife as a w2 wage earner. H&R Block and others would have nickle and dimed me for the several 1099's I presented including multiple write offs, and 5 dependents that he meticulously inputted. End of story... we are happy to have used Daniel for his service. We would definitely use him again + recommend his service to our friends and family.

Rafael was absolutely incredible!! He prepared my tax returns this year. He answered all of my questions and really broke down the entire process so it was easy to understand. He was very accommodating with my schedule. Being a Realtor, I had a lot of items to write off. He educated me on what I can & cant write off and gave me tips for different ways I can keep track throughout the year. I waited until the last minute to file my taxes & he was able to get them done on time. I recommend him to everyone I know & will definitely be using him every year!

There's alot to be said for tax and financial planning professionals. One if them being, they are a dime and a dozen, pushing life insurance, and don't take the time to really get to the heart of the issue for you. Well I can safely say that wasn't the case with Crossroads. They sat me down and treated me like family. There was no push for life insurance in plan, they had acknowledged a need and were able to refer an outside professional. I was so happy with my experience, I even paid to have my mom to have her plan done.

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.

I have entrusted Steven with my tax preparations after many years of filing them myself. The first filing he prepared for me included multiple states (CA and MI), a small business (yoga), and was processed remotely (online). The next year, he spotted a fantastic opportunity on my filing relative to the purchase of my new car. Steven is thorough, efficient and always thoughtful. He keeps himself very up-to-date and is able to explain procedures and processes in a way that is understandable. Taxes are intimidating, but I feel very comfortable and confidant handing everything over to him, knowing it will all be in the best hands possible.

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!!

Jeffrey at Yorktown Main was outstanding! He communicated when the documents. The preparation of my tax return was complicated because I have a Trust, LLC and W-2. He explained everything in detail and kept me updated throughout the process. He made recommendations and in the end, I even got a bigger refund expected! He is diligent, straightforward and got the job done!!! I highly recommend Jeffrey and Yorktown Main!!!

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.
