David did my taxes this year. I found him to be available, efficient and very knowledgeable. He did an excellent job on my taxes, was able to give me great advice and was generally very pleasant to work with. David will definitely be doing my taxes again next year--and managing any tax-related issues I may have. I highly recommend him.

John is great and patiently answered our questions and provided tax services. We are a couple who just got married and bought a house. with so many things going on and past experience only with turbo tax, John explained all the details and gave us suggestions on watch outs and ways to manage our financials better. We'll work with John next year during tax season again!

Thank you FIRM 1040 on our recent tax filling. Our case was bit complicated but Miss Cherie William helped in best possible way. Can't imagine tax filling can be done this quickly. Miss William has in-depth knowledge of tax filling and she really knows what she is doing. Also she can give you best advice on how you can avoid penalties. I highly recommended FIRM 1040 for tax filling especially if you are dealing with multiple W2s and states.

Brian is absolutely outstanding in financial and tax matters. He has provided us with expert advice and has gone above and beyond on several occasions, by such work as helping us prepare for better outcomes in future financial dealings, looking over (and finding) money that was owed to us from prior tax years, and by emailing us with emergency back-up copies of sensitive tax documents on very short notice. Brian is professional and considerate knows his business in all manners of tax law and his sharpness saves his clientele time and money because he understands our financial needs perhaps even better than we do. Plus, he has a sense of humor and he is very kind. I highly commend him on both a professional and on a personal level.

Kind, fast, reliable, no tricks and no attitude. I wish I knew about this awesome tax professional earlier. I've been trying to have my taxes done for more than a week with the biggest tax prep company in NY, and I thank them for testing my patience and making them lose it, otherwise I wouldn't have discovered Kateryna. It literally took 3 hours, she is amazing, trust her with your business

Excellent and I am very happy! I called about my business tax returns- the CPA pointed out mistakes from my previous tax preparer right away. They were really smart and quick. They also showed me how to save more taxes. Their fees are very reasonable especially for a CPA firm- H&R Block charged me more. Very responsive and professional. I could not be happier. I am going to use them for my personal taxes as well.

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!

Adnan is the consummate professional - hands down! He set an appointment with my husband and I. Then flew in from New York a few days later to sit down with us at our kitchen table which made us feel valuable and comfortable. He was punctual and ready to help. Our feat is not easy since we are dealing with restructuring our business and a tax challenge that he was able to guide us through prior to any exchange of payment. We also take comfort in knowing he's been an IRS Enrolled Agent since 2004. He was transparent, knowledgeable, affordable and ultimately hired.

I have been using LZW for tax advice and preparation for many years (10+ yrs) and am always pleased at the thoroughness through which Lin goes about preparing the returns for me and my LLC. Lin is constantly on top of all the latest tax laws, codes and regulations and proactively looks for opportunities to help me minimize my tax liability. Lin is very responsive to any questions i may have and in the rare case she is not sure of an answer, she will thoroughly research the issue and come back with a good answer or solution to my problem. I would highly recommend LZW for any tax or accounting services!

Fred is knowledgeable, responsive to concerns and goes above expectiations to ensure the job gets done. I highly recommend Fred Towles and The Towles Group Inc.

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.
