I had significant issues with past tax issues. To reach resolution it required abatements to be filed on the state and federal level. She knew exactly what was needed and how to proceed to get my issues resolved quickly and correctly, I was impressed by how easy she was to talk to and work with. She is an active listener that understands what you need. She is prepared and gets the job done well. You will not be disappointed if you hire her. I guarantee it.

If I had to describe them in one word, that word would be reliable. This is our third year using the Legacy Tax & Resolution service to prepare our taxes and our company is very pleased with their work so far. Two great things about them are good communication and knowledge of tax laws. They are very easy to get in touch with. Whenever we have called them for help, one of their consultants always gets in touch right away to discuss any problem. They are also very proactive in going through your books and coming up with recommendations about tax saving methods. Prior to using Legacy, we used another firm and had to book an appointment with them a few days in advance. We also felt that they weren’t very good and knowledgeable about the tax laws. We hope to continue working with this firm, as long as they continue to provide their great service standards.

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.
