Dennis, You have always taken care of our needs in preparing our tax returns. The only thing that could improve is the drop box. when it works it seems to be a very good tool. I'm not sure why it always goes down but its frustrating to use once or twice a year and not be able to get the information you put in there for us to and not be able to see. It's probably our computer that has the nitch and doesn't want to be compatible. I'm thinking that maybe you may need to send the link like you did the fist time so we can down load it each year so it would work each year. Again you have done a very good job with our tax returns and we appreciate the fact that you have taken care of our needs even as we move around to different states.

Of course, I had all my tax info organized and the forms that are required to be atch so he was able to prepare my taxes in an efficient manner. What was more important to me was that he answered my questions relating to how I'll need to report my taxes in the future.

Mike Moran (Apex Tax Group) has advised us on our business and personal taxes since 2005. His extensive knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism was in part responsible that our business grew faster than originally anticipated. Mike is always immediately available for any questions and most important always has an answer. We went through several accountants before we found him. We moved further north but gladly make the trip to his office every tax season. Associated Kitchens & Baths Sabine Mark

Mr. Anderson prepared my Federal and State Income Tax Returns and not only was I happy with the outcome of the actual filing, it was absolutely delightful working with him. He answered all of my questions, had some good advice for me and needless to say, I hope to be working with him next year. Today I visited Thumbtack for help on a different matter. I do appreciate your being there whenever I needed you. Thank you again! RJJ

My experience with Damian was flawless. I realized I paid $25 more than the average person pays for a basic 1040 tax return, but he picked up my documents and had my return back to me in 48 hours, keep in mind this was April 13,2016, 2 days before D day. He is a great communicator, went over every line with me and delivered as promised. I am having him do my 2016 return.

    I had been looking for a reliable accounting service that I could trust to work in my best interest. The previous accounting firm I worked with was ok but they were hard to get a hold of, especially during the tax filing season. I first started working with Legacy Tax Service in 2016 when they audited the final accounts for my company. I was impressed by their attention to detail from our very first interaction. Their auditors were quite knowledgeable and asked me why I wasn’t making use of tax breaks that would significantly decrease my tax liability. At that time I was more worried about filing my returns on time and didn’t have a clue about these tax cuts and told them so. Not only did they manage to get my taxes filed on time, they also claimed the exemptions which saved me quite a bit of money. That is when I took them on board completely as my accounting partner and I am quite happy with their service.

      I have been preparing taxes, professionally, for many years and have taught basic tax preparation.

      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.
