I used Jofi for my 2015 tax returns. My situation was a bit complicated, but his price was reasonable, and working with him was a breeze. He was super communicative, fast, and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone.

Lakshmi did an amazing job in compiling my Tax returns. I had an emergency to go out of the country and I needed my tax returns to be filed as soon as possible. Lakshmi helped me with the compilation with a turn around time of just one day. Everything was super smooth with you. She also helped me to claim back a good chunk of money withheld for Social Security which otherwise I wouldn't have claimed back. Overall, my satisfaction with Lakshmi's job is 100%. Don't think twice if you want to engage her as your tax accountant. She is very friendly to talk to, if you want to discuss any of your tax issues.

OH Partners CPAs is a very knowledgeable and helpful CPA firm. I used them for my business formation, company bookkeeping, personal as well as business income taxes. They offer several useful pieces of advice that will help me save money on my tax returns. Fidelis and Evan are the epitome of what tax professionals should be. They have been well taught through academics and experience. Every time I see them, I always have a long list of questions that seem difficult to handle. However, they always answers them with ease. They have a creative yet practical mind that helps you go forward with the best course of action for your accounting needs. Unlike many other tax professionals, they embraced modern technology and can get things done with very little face time. If you do need to speak with them, it always seems they have time for that too. In brief, he is a very effective communicator. He charges a competitive fee that I believe is worth every single penny. At the end of tax season, he will leave you with peace of mind! I would definitely recommend him for someone in a similar situation.

I switched to accountability more than a few years ago and would recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a more personal tax consultant. He provides more one on one help than any of my local options (Ohio resident) and is always a call or email away. Switching to accountability was the best choice I ever made. Quick, problem free, great service, and very reasonably priced.

I couldn’t be happier with Harry and am thrilled I found a CPA for life. At our first meeting, he took the time to explain everything and made recommendations on how I can set up my business to be able to save more on taxes going forward. Other CPAs will charge for this tax consultation but Harry is totally different. He sees this as his regular duty to educate his clients. During our second meeting, we went over our taxes in full detail, and even though I asked a million questions since I’m the type who wants to learn everything, I never felt rushed and Harry wasn’t annoyed at all. I talked to one CPA last year for about 15 mins (initial phone consult) last year and asked questions on how I should set up my business. after I declined his invitation to come into his office for a business consult that costs $400, he accused me of being a user. I’m sorry but that’s not a way to run a successful business. Harry is a breath of fresh air. He’s extremely knowledgeable about all the items I can deduct and even created an excel spreadsheet specific to my business. I’m a real estate agent who also owns multiple rental properties and now I know exactly how to keep my business very organized and what I can deduct to maximize my return!

I highly recommend Nathaniel Jacobson CPAs. Their quality and cost efficient accounting services really highlighted the difference between clerical bookkeepers and professional CPAs. Their adept implementation of cloud-based Xero financials and prompt and friendly support really impressed us and their effortless handling of months of backlogged paperwork and tax analysis made a real difference at a critical juncture in our business. It was a pleasant surprise that a full service multi-office accounting firm could offer flat rate value pricing for key services without any degradation in expertise or personalized attention. An expedient bookkeeping hire has instead become a competitive advantage!

MIS Tax Pros is great! I owed the IRS a large amount of money. I got an Offer in Compromise approved, well, Keith did it. I'm so relieved that burden is off of my shoulders. I got my life back.

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.
