Joe Franek is the best CPA ever! I was very concerned with my upcoming tax return because I am on a private fellowship and the organization is not taking out any federal taxes. Additionally, I have to file in two separate states. Joe helped me to set up quarterly payments so that I do not have to pay penalties, and he educated me on all of the things that I can count as deductions. He is very knowledgeable about tax law in regard to postdoctoral fellowships, self employment, etc and has more years of experience than anyone else I came across. Don't waste your money going to national tax preparation companies; they will not take the time to get you the deductions you deserve (trust me, I know)! I have recommended Joe to all of my friends, many of which are first year faculty in the area. If you are worried about your upcoming tax return, don't panic, call Joe Franek!

However, Pamela Hankerson's have managed to keep me on track with my business. She's effectively form a partnership with me to become my main trusted advisor.

    As a newly self-employed graphic designer, my tax return was a little more complicated than the typical w-2. I chose to reach out to Miranda and could not have had a better experience. She was extremely helpful in explaining which deductions I may or may not be taking advantage of. She was extremely nice and very pleasant to work with, not to mention she saved me time and money. I will definitely be a return customer for my tax prep for the new year.

    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.
