Adam Short is spectacular! He has deep knowledge of the details of tax preparation, he responds to emails almost immediately, and he's endlessly patient with clients like me who are full of questions. He has very high standards, and doesn't take any short cuts - he makes sure that the tax filing will sail through IRS scrutiny by getting every detail in place. His fees are extremely reasonable; the costs are directly related to how simple or complicated the tax return will be. Overall, it was a total pleasure to work with Adam. I recommend him enthusiastically and without any reservation!

I love Alison! I found her 'randomly' last year. I had always done my own taxes on an online program......last year I had some additional stuff that I didn't know how to handle.......Alison was awesome! She came to me to get the tax information......she did all of it....and sent me copies of everything. I had an 'emergency' that she helped me with last fall....I got a letter from IRS that said I owed....almost $5000 from 2013. I gave Alison the information, and she took care of everything......she got the bill moved to less than $125......and my bill from her was LESS THAN $200. I will always use Alison!!

I found Spiro on Thumbtack and gave him a call about doing my 2013 taxes. He was polite, met me when I could get away from work near my neighborhood and completed the tax prep in a very timely and professional manner. I'll use Spiro again and have already recommended him to a few of my friends!

I met with Ragi to get a second opinion for my income tax returns. Ragi is extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous and easy to talk to. His office is very pleasant and inviting. Best of all, he didn't charge me for the nearly two hours of consulting. I highly recommend him for all your tax planning, consulting and compliance needs.

Tony was very efficient and timely with my taxes. Tony made sure to get me an appointment and got my taxes done within 24 hours of me contacting him on here! I was beyond grateful especially when every other office would only do tax extensions (which I really did not want to do). My taxes were complicated to me but he was very knowledgeable and knew exactly what to do with ease. I will be happy to give him my business again in the future :-)

John did a great job on my taxes and was able to help me make some tax planning decisions as well. He was very responsive, answering my emails within an hour and processing my taxes the day after I sent him the needed information. Everything was accomplished easily via email, although he was readily available on the phone too. I will definitely go to John next year for my taxes and would recommend him to you as well.

We have been working with Lexie for a very long time. She’s helped us navigate through very complicated business tax issues, as well as our personal taxes, in a very knowledgeable and professional manner. Even is she was not sure about something, she’d go the extra mile to research it.

I have never had better service with an accounting firm, as I have had with Kar & Carter Accounting, LLC. Their attention to detail is noteworthy to say the least. I would have never gotten as much income back on my tax returns over the years without them. Their prices are extremely reasonable and they will go above an beyond for you, your family, or your company. Thank you for all the hard work ladies!

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.
