Josh from Nile Financial was great to work with. He was fast to respond, answered all my questions with a solid amount of detail, and did everything he could to make the tax outcome positive for us. He is very knowledgeable and eager to help. I already referred Josh to a couple people I know and we will use him next year again for sure. Thanks, Josh!

I had always done my taxes in the past using an online accounting and tax service. I received a tax notice from the agency saying that my calculations were incorrect and I owed the agency more than $15,000 in back taxes. This was quite shocking because I had never had any problems before. Fearing the worst, I reached out to Legacy Tax Resolution. This was my first experience using a specialized tax filing firm and I was honestly surprised and pleased with their work quality. They looked through the accounts I had maintained and also got in touch with IRS. My consultant explained why the agency believed I was underpaying taxes and told me how they were going to resolve the issue. I left with a pretty good understanding of what was going on and what this firm would do for me to fix things. They managed to get everything sorted within two weeks and it was a relief when I got a letter from the IRS saying that the tax notice had been retracted. Top quality service.

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.
