Deb was great to work with. She fit me in on short notice (2 days before the tax filing deadline…on a Sunday afternoon), and was responsive by phone and email. She answered my questions, was professional, agreed to review my 2012 returns, and made a recommendation for a financial planner in her network. I'd definitely see her again for tax preparation in the future and recommend her to anyone else seeking this service in the Twin Cities!

I used professional tax preparation services because my tax situation was significantly more complex than previous years. Even though more complex, David was able to collect all pertinent information for research and completion without needing to meet personally. Thorough, efficient, and friendly on top of professional.

Maggie was very thorough with our tax preparation. She listened to our needs and helped ask us questions to ensure we were getting everything we needed from our session. She was very professional and understanding. With our taxes feeling very complicated prior to walking in the door she made them quick and an easy process. Would definitely recommend.

My son Justin and I both had our tax returns prepared by Geeta at the Inver Grove Heights office. She was very courteous and professional. She also appears to have extensive experience in tax preparation for both individuals and businesses. John Peterson

Wes is very personable and professional. He conveniently comes to my home for our meetings which makes an already hectic schedule that much more manageable. He was able to answer any and all of my questions while also educating me in various areas that I was unaware of. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tax professional. I will undoubtably continue to use him for any and all future accounting needs.

Igor has done an excellent job with both my state and federal tax returns! He was refered to me by a previous tax preparer who used him as a "go to expert" in complicated issues- I did- I was extremely satisfied and have stayed with him since then. He also has worked with me when I have been working at locations from all around the world and is very capable with all the technology to get a return in when needed- always done in an extremely professional and efficient manner. I highly recommend Igor

We have been working with Nu for over 3 years and she is an amazing accountant! We had a really difficult time trying to figure out our tax forms and she helped ease our frustrations by thoroughly working through our paperwork. She was so knowledgeable about our forms and how to process them. She went above and beyond to ensure all of our forms were done correctly and made the process easy. We will continue to work with her!

I was self-employed for over a decade and didn’t really keep a track of my income or tax filings. I didn’t think much of it until I received a notice from IRS telling me that I owed them more than $100,000. I was shocked and distraught because I don’t even earn that much and can barely feed my family while paying rent. A friend told me about Legacy Tax Resolution Services so I contacted them. After listening to my case, they told me what might have gone wrong. They prepared all my un-filed returns and got my business deductions into account. Next thing I knew, that figure dropped to less than $10,000.

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.
