I found Kimpflein Accounting & Tax Service on Thumbtack when searching for a CPA for my business. After speaking with him by phone and then person I felt he was exactly who I needed. I found him easy to talk to, highly knowledgeable and capable of answering my questions both pertaining to taxes and even quick books. He even worked around my schedule which I very much appreciated. I'm ready for 2018 now and extremely relieved that I found (MY) CPA and will be for years to come.

Community Tax Service is so much more than a tax preparation company, but a true business partner. With Steve Pecore's competency and experience in the field, I feel confident going to him for a broad range of professional services (e.g. small business consultation, entity selection, estate and trust tax prep, retirement planning, etc) and know that I'll get the individual attention needed to make the right decisions.

This is an amazing tax firm with very friendly and helpful employees. I contacted them to help me with my taxes just a week before the tax deadline. Their accountants visited my office and asked a lot of questions about the business to prepare me returns. They were able to prepare and submit the return in three days. What really impressed me was that they were courteous and professional throughout the process. They provided a lot of information about the tax process and what accounts I should keep in order to expedite the filing of my taxes. If you are lagging behind on filing your return and the tax deadline is close, you can safely rely on them to get the job done in good time.

I met with and hired Douglas Spurr. I had a wonderful experience with Doug. He was very helpful in explaining a few documents I had questions about and was very timely with preparation and filing. I will definitely be returning next tax season!

        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.
