Thumbtack Customer
Verified review

John is a consummate professional and stands tall amongst his peers. He worked every advantage to assist in providing the best possible results in my case. I was facing a plethora of charges and jail time and my situation appeared bleak, however, John managed to utilize every mitigating factor available and worked with the DA in order to hand me what I considered to be a very favorable result. I left my court date much relieved and feeling that he earned every cent of my fee and then some. You cannot go wrong with having Mr. Mansfield as your attorney.

We moved to NC from NY state at the beginning of the year and needed to find a new tax preparer. Laurie spent time to talk through the details of our return and multiple forms. I like that I can trust we'll have one person working on our taxes from start to finish. She made an effort to get to know me, and made the whole process quite enjoyable. She cares about what she's doing; she's good at it, and it shows. Her price is very reasonable. She's very buttoned up and professional but also personable. I appreciated getting to know her and found her very reliable. She answered my questions, met our agreed deadlines, and even welcomed my preschoolers in her office when they needed to be with me at one of our appointments. We plan to use Laurie again next year!

Joe Franek exceeded my expectations. It is a little unnerving picking someone from the internet to do your taxes. How do you know who to pick? I assure you that Joe is a true professional. Not just a part time job for Joe. He's a true professional in every sense of the word. I highly recommend Franek Tax Services.

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.
