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 just recently used Steve Ribble at Shrink my Taxes to complete my 2012 filings. All around a great experience. As a self-directed trader i have had many questions in the past years that I've never really be able to get clear answers to from my regular tax guy and others I've talked with regarding what is best for "my business" at this point in time. Steve did a fantastic job. He served not only as a tax preparer but as a consultant and tax coach. A trader himself his knowledge of things like trader status, exemptions, mark2market, LLC's, and S-corp's are superb. Shrink my taxes also has a Client portal which made interacting and providing necessary tax info a breeze. I would recommend Steve and his company to anyone and especially to those who are just starting or building trading related businesses.

I can only say that I wish I had met with Mr. Leake many years ago. I had used H&R block and it was the worst experience of my life, they left deductions and had left me with an incredible tax bill. I reviewed the return and found that they had not entered all the tax I had paid. The first response was oh no, we did everything perfect, it took five minutes just to get them to look at the error... needless to say, I will never go or even consider recommending H&R block. Now, Mr. Leake, I will tell everyone about him and how he is able to find all the hidden tax breaks that I had never heard of, being a prior IRS agent makes me feel comfortable that things will be prepared correctly and acceptable to the IRS. I believe we all should pay our fair share of taxes to help run this country but, how much is too much, Mr. Leake finds that fine line between the two and makes everyone happy. I have a new account now for life, even if you have submitted your taxes, it would be highly advised you make an appointment and review them with Mr. Leake, you will be amazed at what he can do for you, thanks Mr. Leake, Rob

We actually had Annette Hoffstatter as our tax preparer. She was able to get us in quickly (since the deadline was closely approaching) and complete our taxes in just a few days. She sat with us to learn of our financial situation and ensure us the largest reimbursement we qualified for.

I used Oaks Accounting for both my business and personal returns. Not only did I save on my tax bill, but I also learned how to better structure my business and manage my finances! The service was timely, efficient and much more insightful than I'd bargained for. Most importantly, it was accurate and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of for what I didn't know. I highly recommend!

I had a bad audit from the IRS and was in serious trouble. I didn’t know what to do and who to turn to. I did my research for about a whole week until I settled with Legacy Tax Resolution Services. They told me in detail about some similar cases they had worked in the past and what kind of a strategy they’d be using for me. I felt confident enough so I decided to put my trust in them. In the end, they worked out a better deal with the IRS than I could ever have hoped for. Thanks Legacy Tax Resolution Services, you’ve got yourself one happy customer!

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.
