I used online tax preparation software to file my taxes and made a number of important and costly mistakes. I met with Paul to file federal and state amendments. He was very prompt and professional; everything was taken care of within 3 days of reaching out to Paul. He did a great job explaining things and even helped me prepare for next year's tax season. Most importantly, I ended up having to pay less than 1/2 of what I originally thought I owed in taxes.

My tax filings not only included two different jobs but also a scholarship component. Despite the complexity of my situation, Mr. Atabu was always on top of everything and had answer to all my questions. He was very knowledgeable, motivated, and always accessible. I would recommend Mr. Atabu to anyone looking for quality tax preparation for a very fair price. I know I will be using his services again next year.

My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

Mr Suozzi was courteous and knowledgeable in dealing with our family's tax preparation for 2014. In addition to multiple incomes and part-year state tax returns, we also had capital gains taxes and moving expense reimbursements, which we did not understand well. Mr Suozzi took the time to explain to us how these things work in the tax code and how he recommended we should deal with them. I asked Mr Suozzi to advise us how to resolve the issues in the most simple and clear way, rather than how to minimize our tax burden. He did this. His rates are reasonable.

Having no knowledge or expertise on taxes and such, and only ever have done the Turbo tax type of things, I highly recommend Kim. She was able to get me my best return by simply asking what I did and knew exactly the type of documents she needed. Kim was super responsive and helpful to any questions I had. I'm at ease when working with Kim. I have full confidence and trust in her and I look forward to working with her again next year!

When it comes to making tax season pain free Michael Schonig delivers. Been with him for three tax seasons so far and definitely utilizing him next year. Keeps records well, checks against past returns in case we forget something, and works with our crazy schedule. Of the two certainties in life, death and taxes he will take care of the later.

Great job and very professional. They have an office in Norwalk, CT where you can meet and go over what you need done. The office was a little run down with difficult parking, but if you are paying for the quality of the accounting services than this will be quickly overlooked. They were always available to take my calls and very responsive to my questions. Got the work done in a timely manner.

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.
