Legacy Tax & Resolution Services

I love this company and their tax resolving service is the best. They have been really helpful to my husband and our small family business. We run a small delivery service and hadn’t filed our taxes in a while because my husband doesn’t know much about accounting and taxation. We had a call from the IRS and received a notice with a huge penalty. We were really worried sick about what to do before we got in touch with their consultants. They negotiated with the IRS and took care of the whole tax matter in two weeks. What I especially like about them is how down to earth, patient and thorough they are in explaining everything. My husband and I don’t know much about accounting and taxes, but they explained the tax process and calculation to us in really plain and simple terms.

Very prompt replies and fast service. A big pro for me was that the tax preparation fee can be taken out of the tax return instead of having to pay up front. Definitely recommended and will use again! :)

QwikiTAX, LLC

Usually I do my own taxes but this year was more complicated since we sold our house in Lenexa and moved to new home in Missouri. I was very pleasantly surprised at the low price and excellent service. Zeffrey did everything on the spot. We spend about an hour going over all my documents and then he said he would have our return completed in about another hour. Rather than driving home and then back, we opted to shop at Costco, which is very close to his office. When we returned, true to his word, he had completed our returns and all we had to do was to sign them. Our taxes have never before been this easy. I highly recommend Zeffrey for fast, friendly and inexpensive tax preparation.

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.
