This year I was using The Beyrak Firm help to prepare my tax return 2016. Jenny was incredibly helpful with it. I tried TurboTax online service before, but I have to pay much more taxes using it. Thank you Jenny for saving my money and for the service you provide.

J&R Accounting is one of the best Tax preparation services in the area. I hired them to prepare my 2014 Tax return, they went above and beyond my request and provided additional support with no additional charges. The quote was fair. I have to point out that Shaimal is really a customer centric person. I will absolutely come back next year and re-hire J&R to prepare my 2015 Tax return.... Way to go J&R , keep up the good work!

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!!!!

Mr Malan was very articulate and demonstrated a high level of competency that definitely gave me a greater sense of trust and confidence in the services that he offered. Nowadays, in this fast-paced environment, it's difficult to find business owners that can deliver quality, while still showing each customer that they are valued and appreciated. As tax season approaches, don't stress yourself.... Go and get the job done right by visiting Malan Tax Service. Jeffrey

Sean did an excellent job on my 2016 tax return. He is the best accountant I've worked with so far. I've been struggling to decide use CPA or Turbotax for my tax return. But after Sean did my tax return, I made up my mind that I will be going to him for my tax return going forward. He saved me a lot of money compare to Turbotax. He is also very detail oriented and patient. The whole process is very pleasant, it only took him 2 days to get my tax done. I've already asked him to take a look at my tax return of previous year and recommended him to my friends.

But soooo glad i finally found a tax agent i can trust and recompense the blood, sweat, and tears! Jack is the man! Very friendly, professional, ethical, and honest. Amazing staff, environment and honorable team. I highly recommend to friends and family. We are forever grateful for their amazing service!!!!

    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.

    We met Steve at a DuPage County networking event and was impressed by his professionalism. Steve has been guiding us for the past three years as our accountant and bookkeeper. His knowledge and attention to detail has helped make my company aware of any tax savings and programs that benefit us. He is proactive by emailing his clients how changes in the tax plans will affect our business. We consult with Steve before we make any major changes in our business. If he doesn’t know the answer he will research and find out what we need to know. I feel confident in recommending Steve’s accounting services. He is not only thorough, but also easy to work with and always willing to take the time to discuss any concerns my business partner and I have. He is quick to respond to our questions and provide us with answers we understand.

    Dean was very quick and easy to work with! I didn't meet Dean in person, but all of our communication over the phone and through email was professional and he made the entire process seamless. My husband and I were really dragging our feet this tax season, but Dean was able to turn around our returns quickly, in time for the filing deadline! We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again next year!

    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.
