Mr. Jones prepared our income taxes from his office. Preparation was completed within 3 days. He is courteous, efficient, experienced and knowledgeable in his field with tax preparation. Our foreign income submission was rejected. Mr. Jones looked over the info and realized he used the incorrect form. He immediately made the correction and emailed the form for us to sign and mail. No more than 2 weeks, we received our refund. He is willing to go far and beyond to assist his clients. I highly recommend his services.

Natalie handled our payroll, bookkeeping and tax preparation for my solo physician practice. She was timely, professional, and saved us quite a bit from the service I had used previously. Natalie prepared monthly financial reports and would meet with me regularly to review them and answer my questions. I'm a physician and much of this accounting is absolutely foreign to me. She worked closely with my office manager and billing company to insure monies were accounted for and to provide a true picture of my practice. I would highly recommend utilizing Copeland & Associates PLLC, especially if in the medical/dental field. Erik Schabert, D.O.

I had been overpaying my taxes to the IRS for almost 5 years without even knowing it. It was only while doing a random search that I read about how people usually overpay for years. Since I read it on the website of Legacy Tax Resolution Services, I called them up and inquired about my case. They were really accommodating knowing that I’m not a regular customer. They said they’d be glad to help and they did. After a thorough scrutiny they informed me that I was indeed paying extra. They revamped my tax calculations and while there wasn’t much that could be done about the previously made payments, I’m happy that my tax load has been considerably reduced now.

    I recently used Dorain Hillary of Executive Taxes Now Inc for my IRS tax filing and this experience was seamless, quick and user friendly. My circumstances included a backlog of incompliance issues but thanks to Dorian Hillary and her deeply rooted/long reach with IRS officials, I got my refund quicker than I expected [few questions and Add to dictionary... Done!!!!!"].

    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.
