Quick, easy, absolutely painless experience getting my taxes done. We had a very useful, informative initial session to review my financial situation. I was able to ask plenty of questions and get detailed plans on the process. After providing all the required documentation, the turnaround time was better than expected. We reviewed the final product and I was again able to ask any questions I had and I got the chance to review all the documents prior to submission. Overall I would highly recommend EMD for tax services.

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

David is great. We hired him to do the monthly bookkeeping for our 501 (c) 3. Very easy to work with, extremely accommodating, and appears to be knowledgeable about nonprofit accounting procedures. We are also using him for our personal 2014 tax returns.

Latoya records all of my receipts and expenses for my rental properties. In addition to that, she prepares my tax returns, and she has been able to effectively reduce my taxes owed, thus resulting in a refund, which I was not expecting. She is wonderful to work with and she does a good job. I highly recommend her for all of your accounting needs.

I had five years of balances owed with the IRS and I was overwhelmed with trying to deal with them directly. The team at Dorchester Law Center contacted the IRS on my behalf and negotiated a very reasonable payment plan so I wouldn't have to worry about a levy against my bank account. They even prepared my next tax return and got my annual debt whittled down to $100. That was a huge relief to me because the balances kept accumulating until I owed over $10,000. I am very grateful to them for resolving a painful issue that I didn't know how to handle on my own.

My husband and I have used Gregory Elia who is with Kerith Brook for approximately 30 years for our tax preparation and other tax related issues. You cannot find a more professional and personable person. He is very trustworthy and detail oriented. On a personal note he is also a very compassionate person. We are very fortunate to have Gregory handle our tax matters.

I originally did my own taxes using a tax software. It told me I owed the state and was getting back very little from the fed. I decided to make sure that was correct and went to see James. Not only did he give me a fair price, not a quote to do them, but best of all I'm actually getting back a decent amount of money from both the fed and the state. I definitely recommend James if you're looking for someone to do your taxes. No more DIY software for me.

We would describe Legacy Tax Resolution service as good communicators with a very thorough understanding of the tax system. We have been using their services for four years and have an ongoing partnership with their firm to handle all our tax matters. Their professional service has often guided us on tax matters and showed us ways to make use of the tax breaks and rebates. We believe that over the years, they have saved us more money than they’ve cost for their services. Their firm has also helped us remain compliant with the tax regulations and we’ve had no problems with the IRS since we took them on board.

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.

Newtown Square, PA

  • Details
    2013 will be a difficult year for my taxes. I had three jobs (so far) with the third ending in October 2013. Two of the jobs were in Virginia but I lived in PA. For one job, my employer incorrectly listed me as having a VA address for two weeks. Furthermore, my previous employer sued me for a baseless claim and eventually dismissed the case with prejudice. However, I spent a considerable amount of money defending myself in an attempt to keep my job (The beginning of the lawsuit led to my termination at my second employer). On top of that, I did 2 401k rollovers to a Roth IRA which were both taxable events, and I will probably roll over another 401k in my current employer by the end of the year. This will be a difficult preparation and I want to make sure I pay the least amount of money and secure all my deductions.
