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!!!!

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!

Gerald was very patient with me and thorough with my taxes. Tax Busters provided first class service and their technology made it very easy to submit all necessary documents from the comfort of my home. Gerald not only helped me with this year's taxes but identified discrepancies in the previous two years taxes where I am due additional refund money. A REAL PRO!

I simply cannot say enough good things about Cummings Professional Services, Inc. Linda is so knowledgeable and easy to work with. She is friendly, listens carefully, asks questions, and her tax preparation was thorough, comprehensive and timely. She came to my office and gathered all of the information necessary to do the best possible job on my corporate and personal tax returns. She is very professional; she responds quickly to questions; has a user-friendly web-site and, most importantly, her accounting expertise is simply outstanding! I highly recommend Linda and Cummings Professional Services, Inc.!

I was pretty new to tax preparation and James did a fantastic job explaining things to me in a way that made sense. He gave me tips for next year and even printed out informative articles for me to take home. I have a fairly unpredictable schedule and James was great about being available for meetings at times that were convenient for me. I will definitely use James again in the future!

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.

I am very pleased with the outstanding service and with my tax expert. Tim is very experienced, patient and has a lot of knowledge regarding taxes, credit and finances. Over the several years I have had a great experience, no issues and enjoy the value YRS Tax Service gives me. Several of my family members and friends uses them to prepare our taxes and he has helped be bring my credit score from a 500 to a 730 as well. I trust him and he goes far out of his way to help the customers he serves. In fact Tim told me when I did my taxes that he wrote a book on credit coming out in May. Very highly recommended and I truly know from personal experience you will love working with them. Thank you YRS Tax Service for the wonderful things you do and for always looking out for me.

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.
