I partner with Mike on many projects including tax preparation, bookkeeping, and payroll. I trust Mike to work with me and my clients in a professional, competent and ethical manner. He has never tried to take my clients. Mike has high level of expertise, is good at teaching and sharing his knowledge. My practice would be incomplete without him.

Mr Jones promptly returned my call within an hour He gave me enough information for me to tell he was as an expert in the tax resolution department! He always answered my crazy questions and was very matter of fact which is a good quality I would recommend most definitely 5 stars ⭐️ and guess what he also is handling my business transactions through Quickbooks. I don’t even need a bookkeeper! He solved my problems !

Keith is likely the most knowledgeable CPA I’ve ever dealt with. When I first submitted my taxes to him they were in total disarray from my previous accountant. He worked diligently with me to correct the utter clutter and incorrect information that was previously submitted that ultimately landed me owing a large sum of money. After many long nights, he actually corrected all mistakes and I ended up receiving a small refund versus owing a large amount of money. I highly recommend his services to anyone needing their taxes corrected, or if you want them done correctly to begin with.

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.
