Michelle was wonderful helping my husband and I file our personal taxes and taxes for our LLC. Her expertise was a blessing to us, as we had no idea what we were doing before she came to help. She was also super flexible with us as it took several meetings for us to get all our paperwork together. She met us around town when we had something to give her and kept us updated via email on the status of our returns. She had personal advice as to how to keep better accounting records. She had an answer to every single question we had. I cannot say enough good things about Michelle and Back Office Administrators. I definitely recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for personal or business tax filing services.

Services: 1) Tax Preparation, 2) advice on a real estate issue. My experience with Suncrest Financial Services was excellent. I was contacted promptly by a accountant/consultant who was courteous and professional. My complicated tax preparation was performed in a very timely manner with great attention to detail. The paperwork was filed on time and the accountant gave me solid advice for preparing for filing 2016 taxes. The accountant researched my real estate question and her advice will save me money in the future. I was very impressed with the accountant and the customer service of the company. I plan to continue to use Suncrest Financial Services for my future accounting needs.

Mr. Brian Wise did three things which makes him the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. 1. Mr. Wise took my 2013 Tax Return (which I had already prepared), applied IRS Rules of which I had no knowledge, and increased my return by 110%. 2. Mr. Wise resubmitted my 2009 and 2008 Tax Returns and recovered for me the Penalty and Return which was a very SIGNIFICANT RETURN. 3. Lastly, Mr. Wise EDUCATED US. His philosophy is: “THE IRS WORKS FOR US”. This “respect” but “fearless” philosophy taught me that even though we Taxpayers make mistakes, we should be allowed to make amends for those mistakes without the fear of a huge incursion upon our assets or our freedom. Mr. Wise is the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. He has had a GIGANTIC impact on our financial freedom and I look forward to a long partnership with his firm. ~ Jerry C. Featherstone

Ghion Tax has been preparing my taxes for years in Falls Church, VA. Mehari in particular is a very professional, very educated tax preparer. They always spend the extra time to ask me the questions that will guarantee that I maximize my return....topics that H&R Block would never even broach because of their cookie cutter corporate approach. I'm now saving at least $200 extra on each return! The first time you go to visit them, you will find it challenging to locate their office within a congested strip mall; however you will be pleased that you made the decision to put yourself through the hassle because the service is first rate.

    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.
