It was a pleasure to work with Mr Shybi Thomas for my tax returns. He was able to understand my special situation of needing to include foreign income and deal with double taxation issues. He also helped me with tax planning and savings approaches. Big thumbs up to Mr Shybi and his team at Cititax.

We run a small catering service business and provide food for small parties, birthdays and other occasions. We had never filed tax returns because we didn’t think our business made enough money to be taxed. A couple of agents from the IRS showed up at our home last month and handed us a notice for unpaid taxes. They also said that we had a month to pay the taxes or we would face consequences, including penalties and imprisonment. Quite, alarmed by all this we contacted Legacy Tax & Resolution Services and they agreed to go through our records and file the back tax returns. They worked really hard over the 3 weeks and filed the returns with the IRS, lowering our taxes from $83,516 to $4,594. They also negotiated payment to be spread over the next three years, which was accepted by the IRS. We are really happy with their service and would recommend Legacy Tax & Resolution Services to other small businesses that haven’t filed their tax returns.

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.
