I needed help filing for taxes and I had a bit of a complicated tax situation as I live and work abroad and after posting the job, Shane responded and quickly began working on my tax refund and literally completed everything in about 24 hours! I couldn't be happier with the attention and service and it was easy working for him even from an entire ocean away! This is definitely not the last time I'll be going to him for my accounting needs, highly recommended!

I work in finance and have my masters in finance. Through this I have taken multiple individual income tax classes so I am relatively familiar with tax law and I'm fairly confident I could put together a return if I needed to. However I don't need to because I have one of the best in the business on my team. Steve has set-up my S-corp and files my yearly personal and business return. He is an expert at helping minimize my tax burden and ensure I have all of my paperwork in order each year. Steve always goes above and beyond with detailed summaries and instructions. As a trader I like to think of his services as one of my best investments all year. Carpe Diem!

Kristina and her company Fundamental Accounting were fantastic. She completed the 2016 tax year return for my wife and I, with expert knowledge of tax codes, electronic filing standards with itemized deductions. I saved money, compared to my 2015 and 2014 returns. Will keep her as my trusted professional and recommend her to others needing assistance.

I had past due taxes from California, current taxes from Florida, recently separated and in the middle of child custody; Needless to say, I had no idea where to begin with my handful of W2s from two different states, as well as my new life arrangements. Nation Wide Tax was very professional and knowledgeable and was able to help me in a timely manner. Without a doubt I will be a returning customer for next years tax season. I strongly recommend his services.

Russell has prepared our taxes for the last six years. He has always kept lines of communication open, honest and consistent. He’s done everything in his power to get us the maximum returns we were entitled to year in and year out. I recommend Russell to anyone I come into contact with regarding tax preparation and when it comes to getting more of your hard earned money put back into your pocket.

John Calhoun has been my CPA for over 5 years. He makes certain I have nothing that IRS would question while making certain I can claim all deductions possible. He makes certain I have backup for all my deductions. I have a tri-plex and live in the top level. John makes certain I only take deductions for repairs in the two lower apartments. He also takes into account all my already paid taxes and all income. Some years I have experienced a refund and some years I have to pay more taxes which is my own fault for not having taxes taken from my social security income. I would recommend John to anyone as their CPA and tax consultant. Marrion S. Cantu

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.
