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!

She was friendly, made sure I had all needed. I was able to get in for an appointment so close to the 17th. The price was at least about 1/3 of what a Big name company had charged me for previous tax preparations. Services were done within just hours after dropping off the paper work. Thank you very much.

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.

Margaret has been my personal accountant for over a decade and a half. She was referred to me by a friend during a time of tax trouble that I had unwittingly gotten myself into and I will go nowhere else. I have a unique situation where in one of my professions I am an independent contractor with several business expenses. On the other hand my side hustle consists of an hourly pay rate plus tips. Margaret makes it all so easy. I could not do this without her. Every year she makes a stressful time easier and streamlined. It is almost as if she is a therapist in a time of need. Margaret will always be my accountant and I recommend her highly to anyone, no matter what their situation. Margaret can handle anything with professionalism plus she adds the human component to each individual. Every tax season I laugh at all of the commercials advertising big accounting firms and am so relieved I have Margaret.

Jean is a great accountant! I appreciate working with her because she is very responsive and spent time educating me as I am allergic to accounting details! She guided me through selecting and establishing my tax identity to help me maximize my tax savings. She also set up my books - I had QuickBooks on my desktop which I didn’t set up properly so I ran into tons of issues! She set me up online with the ability to enter expenses from my iPad and iPhone! I believe she has a sliding scale for services - from bookkeeping through tax preparation that she can walk through with yo. She can help you determine if you need to set up a payroll. My favorite part of working with Jean - she goes out of her way to get to know you, your situation and goals and even offers a consultation to discuss your needs ahead of time - either in person or by phone.

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.
