Had a problem with the accuracy of my 2017 tax forms from my "former" accountant. Made a call, on the weekend they were due, received a response quickly and all forms were redone for me within a few hours. I will be using them next year and will recommend their service to anyone.

"CB Accounting has become a strategic partner and an integral part of growing my business. They were quickly able to sort through a couple of years worth of information that had overwhelmed me as I struggled to keep up with my company's growth. Once they were finished, all of the information that had overwhelmed me was now in the correct categories within QuickBooks. I now have accurate financial reports that can easily be accessed in real time. As a bonus, they were able to reduce what I had anticipated for my tax liability. With their knowledge of the latest software systems, they were able to get my project management tools set-up and synced with QuickBooks to maximize the benefits. I continue to retain CB Accounting's expertise helping to drive my business growth going forward."

    Cassandra knows her taxes! I had what I considered a big mess, I had been misled by other preparers. I was referred to Taxes will Travel, she reviewed my case. She explained the proper procedures, took immediate action and resolved my tax issues quickly and professionally. I can't thank her enough.

    I received a bill of unpaid taxes from the IRS in 2017. That is when I got in touch with Legacy Tax Resolution to help me clear my taxes. I run a small home improvement business with annual turnover of less than half a million. We provide services for all kinds of kitchen and bathroom updates. I make a reasonable profit but nowhere near the amount that the IRS had billed us. My books of accounts were managed by a private accounting firm. They had really messed up the records, which is why the IRS was suspicious. Since I had nothing to hide, I was confident things would get resolved easily, but getting things done through the tax agency proved far trickier than I had imagined. They had also served a notice period with heavy penalties which was really alarming. The tax consultants at IRS were really wonderful. Not only did they sort out my accounting records, they also filed returns with the IRS and the notice was retracted. Since last year, I have been using Legacy to manage my accounts and file taxes for my business.

    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.
