Christine is fantastic - responsive, personable, and didn't even blink as she sorted through some of our financial wackiness. I'm thrilled to have a go-to tax person, and I'm looking forward to working with some of the other folks at Advocate Tax for other financial strategizing.

After an interview process we selected Clinton as accountant and tax advisor for our Gerull Labs LLC (g-labs) optical instrument and related software app business. His thorough manner and competence related to accounting (and tax matters especially) have been a great help. We would recommend him highly to anyone for accounting and/or tax related work and look forward to a long working relationship.

Neill was extremely easy to work with and completed my 2018 Tax returns quickly and was very helpful with any questions I had for him. I would recommend him to my friends and his fee was very reasonable.

We had an easy and fast tax experience using Sandra at Central Colorado Tax Services! Her rate was extremely fair and she had our amended year as well as three other tax years done in less than a week. She was very nice and very thorough. All the taxes were organized and ready to send off when we met for the second time. She even got us back more than we had been told by H&R Block. Will be doing our taxes again with her next year!

My company, The Wing Hut, has been working with Absolutely Advanced Accounting for a little over a year now. We are very pleased with not only their professionalism but there ability to support us when it comes to difficult decisions. At times they have had to give us facts about our books that were hard to hear but much appreciated and necessary. Working with a company that is willing to be honest with us has been very helpful getting our books into order. They have been on our side since day one and do whatever they can to save us money. I will continue to use Absolutely Advanced Accounting not only for my business but for my personal finances as well. -Caleb Roddy Owner/GM Wing Hut

Like most people I've been stressed about doing my taxes for months . Per the reviews I found on John and the fact that his office is convenient for me , I made an appointment . He gave me a Taxpayer Organizer which helped me know what to bring . While in the waiting room I was offered coffee or water by his secretary . She was very nice and very personable . After a couple hours, John had my 2016 returns done as well as 2014 state & .amended a couple prior years. Separated everything , gave me pre addressed envelopes . My original quote was based on what I thought was need but John did way more . He tried to stand by his quote but there's no way I couldn't pay his full fee !! He saved me $10,000 and gave me piece of mind through the whole process . I highly recommend Income Tax Specialists .

Darlene came over to my house and provided great guidance for the applicable law I was interested in (Real Estate & Tax law). Good advise is perhaps the best investment you can make with your time and money and we got some great building blocks for the start of our engagement.

This is our first time using Don for tax preparation. After having a bad experience with another CPA last year, my wife and I were nervous about trying an online recommendation service. Thankfully working with Don was a painless experience. We met in person at my convenience to review the previous years return and discuss this years changes. The next morning I received our tax return. Don also provided a copy of our return on disc for our records. I certainly plan on using Don from now on, and would recommend him to anyone.

Maia Wealth has been super helpful in helping us understand the big picture. I had so many questions about investments and taxes, but Maia was quick to help and research topics they were not certain about. I would recommend to anyone.

Lisa Price is the best. Because of her expertise, I received well above what I expected on my tax returns. She even got me money from the previous year that was missed by other agencies. She holds high standards of excellence in all that she does, but is also down to earth, and incredibly easy to work with. I plan on using her services for all of my financial needs.

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.

Legacy Tax & Resolution Services has done a great job for my business. I was in a tax recovery program after having failed to file my returns for four years. Someone suggested their services and I contacted the firm to see if they could help out. They went through my books and negotiated with the IRS on my behalf. Their consultants are very knowledgeable and professional. Not only did they manage to get the total tax obligation reduced, their firm was also able to negotiate the payment over a longer period of time. It took me one year and three months to get done with all the taxes due for the last four years. Consultants from the firm stayed in touch with me throughout the process, offering help wherever I needed it. They run a very professional and reliable 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.
