I had not filed my taxes for several years. When the time came that I absolutely had to catch them up, I contacted several CPA’s and tax preparers, but was unable to find anyone willing to take on such a challenge and assist me with my tax returns. A friend referred me to Krassy, and she was the answer to my prayers. She is highly professional and has a passion for, and dedication to, helping and fighting for her clients. If you have ever found yourself involved with the IRS, you know what a nightmare it can be. Issues with the IRS, include inexperienced “help desk” employees and less than helpful agents. It is basically a one sided battle which is designed to almost guarantee that you will lose. Krassy guided me thru the IRS red tape and procedures. That included her spending many hours on the phone waiting to get in contact with the correct agent, along with trying to chasing down needed phone numbers. The IRS is not very helpful when they have your “feet to the fire”. They are only interested in how much money that they can pile up in penalties, fees, and interest. It appears that their mission is to cause you as much stress as possible so that you will give up your fight and pay whatever they decide you owe them, even if you don’t owe them all the money that they claim. I would never have been able work my way thru the system and get everything straightened out without all of Krassy’s hard work, support, and dedication. Even when faced with roadblocks and setbacks thrown at us, her determination to get these problems resolved was gratifying. I truly feel fortunate to have had her “in my corner” fighting for me. Often during our appointments, I walked out of the office with more hope that this was going to be resolved better than I expected than when I arrived. Krassy, thanks for all your dedication Sincerely Larry Barker

    i have enjoyed working with Aaron and his team at Key Financial. Not only do I trust them to do my personal taxes, I also have entrusted them with my business taxes and more importantly helping to create a financial plan. I appreciate Aaron's direct and honest approach, but the knowledge and learning is what makes me a loyal customer. Key Financial provides me value by always looking for ways to simplify or better my financial standing with services even outside their practice. I recommend anyone starting a business to meet with Key Financial, they can help you start with proper financial structure and help you grow.

    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.
