David was a life saver at the end of tax time. He was able to do my families taxes (which were quite complicated) in a timely manner all through email which was great for me because of my strapped shedule. Definitely go with David

I typically prepare and e-file my own tax return. Sadly, my father passed away last year and I quickly found myself in over my head. My family went from a straightforward federal and state return to one that included the final return of my father, assets distributed as part of a trust, assets that fell under a will, assets that fell outside of both, several tax IDs etc. Using Thumbtack, I found several tax professionals and received quotes from three. Atabu stood out for a number of reasons: • Flexibility – Atabu met me at my office during business hours, saving me a great deal of travel time. • Professionalism – Atabu was always on time and came prepared to each meeting. • Diligence – Again, this year’s return was really complex for me and I simply didn’t have the knowledge readily available. Atabu brings that all to the table and waded through several options to minimize estate taxes and maximize my return. • Availability – Atabu and I communicated via email and text, he was always available. If you’re looking for an experienced professional to guide you through a turbulent return, look no further.

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

Excellent and I am very happy! I called about my business tax returns- the CPA pointed out mistakes from my previous tax preparer right away. They were really smart and quick. They also showed me how to save more taxes. Their fees are very reasonable especially for a CPA firm- H&R Block charged me more. Very responsive and professional. I could not be happier. I am going to use them for my personal taxes as well.

My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

I have been using LZW for tax advice and preparation for many years (10+ yrs) and am always pleased at the thoroughness through which Lin goes about preparing the returns for me and my LLC. Lin is constantly on top of all the latest tax laws, codes and regulations and proactively looks for opportunities to help me minimize my tax liability. Lin is very responsive to any questions i may have and in the rare case she is not sure of an answer, she will thoroughly research the issue and come back with a good answer or solution to my problem. I would highly recommend LZW for any tax or accounting services!

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.
