Thank you FIRM 1040 on our recent tax filling. Our case was bit complicated but Miss Cherie William helped in best possible way. Can't imagine tax filling can be done this quickly. Miss William has in-depth knowledge of tax filling and she really knows what she is doing. Also she can give you best advice on how you can avoid penalties. I highly recommended FIRM 1040 for tax filling especially if you are dealing with multiple W2s and states.

Kind, fast, reliable, no tricks and no attitude. I wish I knew about this awesome tax professional earlier. I've been trying to have my taxes done for more than a week with the biggest tax prep company in NY, and I thank them for testing my patience and making them lose it, otherwise I wouldn't have discovered Kateryna. It literally took 3 hours, she is amazing, trust her with your business

I contacted Mr. Gentile about a problem I was having with my New York state tax return which was driving me insane. Within minutes of our initial contact on Thumbtack we were talking on the phone, and he had me forward some documents to him. He figured out the problem immediately and called me back. He was very fast and friendly and professional and I now have complete peace of mind with my return. I strongly recommend Mr. Gentile and would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I was terrified to start my taxes as a first year freelancer, but Christine was so kind and warm and put me at ease about the whole process. She empathized with me about how scary it is to go into business for yourself, which meant a lot to have someone tell me they went through the same fears. Not only was she prompt in responses, thorough, and professional but she made me feel confident into going to business for myself and to keep at it. I highly recommend Christine and Brae Accounting...highly.

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.
