Nicole was quick and responsive with my small business and personal income tax returns. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She explained taxes to us in a way we could understand and she informed us about deductions we were not aware of. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of tax services.

Brian was a wonderful help with our taxes this year! This was my first year running my own business so I went from a super straightforward Turbo Tax kind of return to a very complex one that I didn't understand. Brian discussed our needs with my husband and I, walked me through what info I needed to give him, asked for clarity when required, and put together our taxes in a timely, supportive, respectful and informational way. When we wanted to learn what something meant, he explained it. And when we just wanted him to handle things, he handled them. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for tax support or more generally advice on how to manage their finances. THANK YOU BRIAN!

After having trouble with out of the box tax software that actually resulted in an IRS audit and my wife and I having a more complicated-than-usual tax year we needed an actual tax professional to handle our return. We found Joshua on Thumbtack and it was easy from there. He was available to meet around our work schedules. We handed over our documentation and explained our finances and in a short amount of time he completed our return and maximized our refund. Prices were comparable to any self-service tax software and cheaper than any of the chain tax filing services. We'll be going back to him next year.

Bill did a great job. He gave me an estimate and then came right out to my house and did the taxes. He was quite the businessman. He knew just what to do and had everything done in about 15 minutes. I'll be looking forward to getting my money back from the state and federal returns. I would recommend him to anyone who needs tax returns done.

I used Nate's tax preparation services to file my return this year and I was very pleased with the quality of the service. He is very professional and knowledgeable, and was able to explain things in a way that was easy to understand. I've previously only filed taxes on my own using TurboTax, and this was a much better experience!

I worked with Richard on a matter involving Form 990 and Form 990-T filings for a non-profit organization. During our first conversation to explain the specific request, Richard was very professional and understood the need immediately. The matter was also time sensitive which he was willing to accommodate. It was clear that he had plenty of experience that he would be able to provide to the situation. Once I sent him the necessary documents and a series of questions, Richard very quickly reviewed the 990-T form and made some favorable corrections, conducted some additional research, and responded with the answers I needed. He also put together a short document detailing his research in an easy to understand manner. Richard truly went above and beyond in assisting me with my filing needs. He also did it very quickly which was important in this situation. I would certainly enlist Richard's services again if needed, and would recommend him to other potential clients looking for Tax Consulting services.

Viktor was very diligent during my initial interview to explain how he can help not only with my taxes but with other financial decisions. He recommended excellent savings options and assisted in analyzing my need for life insurance. In addition Viktor helped me select investments in my 401 K and filed my taxes. All meetings – online and in person – were very comforting, informative and empowering. I would definitely work with In Need Solutions again in the future.

We contacted Keith because we had several years of past due business and personal tax returns to file. Keith helped us gather our records, took care of all of the bookkeeping and filed the tax returns. After it was all said and done we owed very little and Keith was able to have the penalties waived. I am so happy to have this mess behind me and even more happy to have found our Accountant!

Tristan made doing my tax returns super easy. Generally I dread it every year but ever since working with Tristan, I don't mind tax season. He makes it so easy, I don't even need to meet him in person. Through his secure portal, I'm able to upload all of my documents. He's been responsive with all of my questions, even during the year and gave great advice on what to do. I feel very comfortable with Tristan and will definitely continue to come back each year.

Have been going to H R Block for 30+ years. Tired of paying their high charges for simple tax filings. Decided to shop for a new tax professional. Found Dwight A. Hamblet to take over, beginning 2018. He sounds very professional and honest. Thank you, Thumbtack. Better late then never!

I am an ongoing client of AnneShade associates. Anne and her team were referred to me by the Small Business Administration. I was a a new small business owner and was having difficulty grasping what was needed to manage my small business financially. Anna and her team were patient with me and coached me every step of the way. They provide one stop shopping for me as they do my business bookkeeping, set up my LLC, and also do my personal and business taxes. I cannot say enough good things about Anna and her team of professionals. They are 100% dedicated to the success of their clients.

Matt and his staff were great! He really came through for me in resolving my IRS problem. I still can't believe we settled over $200,000 of tax debt for just $7,400. I would highly recommend Matt's tax firm to anyone having an IRS or state tax problem.

These guys are really smart and run a top class professional service. I’ve been using them for years as my dedicated accounting and audit firm. I am a serial entrepreneur and started a number of business projects. Some of them failed, while others have been more successful and turned into profitable concerns. Obviously, I’ve had my run with the IRS and tax services. They seem to believe that I am making millions of dollars every year and rolling in money. They slammed me with notices of taxes due for the three companies worth more than $158,109. Luckily I’ve been working the experts at Legacy Tax Resolution. We all had a good laugh about the tax bills and then I let them handle the negotiations with the IRS. The tax agency later dropped the notices. Quite effective.

    Providing tax preparation and consulting for individuals and small businesses.

    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.  

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
