Tom has been handling all of our tax work since 1992, from monthly sales tax filings to a full scale IRS audit. He was with me while an IRS examiner spent two and a half days at our office, answering questions and providing backup material. All ended well as Tom said it would, because our returns were done properly, and all supporting documentation was available. We have been happy with the Hodge Group for over 20 years, and use them for everything for our bookkeeping, accounting, and tax prep. Two thumbs up!!!!

Brian was prompt, courteous, and answered my obscenely absurd tax questions with professionalism and respect. I had originally gone through an online software and was skeptical but Brian walked me through my return and maximized my refund. He quickly worked through my 4 W-2's, HSAs, retirement rollovers and multiple state taxes. With his timeliness and knowledge, I'd highly recommend Brian.

Mr. Sneed was a real professional with his work. I felt like he took an interest in what I was doing in my work so that he could provide all the necessary tax deductions. He asked the right questions to find all the ways that I earned money in order to make sure that I don't have to worry about audits. I was always able to get in touch with him when I needed to contact him. The cost of completing my business taxes for two businesses as well as completing my individual taxes was well worth it! I recommend him for all who need to have a professional to complete their taxes.

This is a good tax consulting service run by really smart and friendly people. We got in touch with them after the IRS informed us that there were discrepancies in our tax returns for the years 2016 and 2017. The agent informed us that our business owed more than ten thousand in back taxes for the two years and had a month’s time to get the records corrected. Specialists from Legacy Tax Resolution went through our records for a week and found the problems with the payroll which were causing the IRS to be suspicious. They negotiated with the tax authorities and had the problem sorted in less than a two weeks. This is a top class service.

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.
