Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a tax preparer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to conduct an appointment during the COVID-19 pandemic is virtually, as this will ensure that you remain within the CDC's social distancing guidelines.

Ask tax professional near you if they would be willing to give a consultation via phone call, Zoom, Skype or other video conferencing software to discuss the scope of work. Also, ask them how they handle payments and whether they will be able to conduct all of their services remotely.

What is a tax preparer called?

A tax preparer can take the form of several different job titles, but they must have an IRS Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) to be authorized to prepare federal tax returns, according to the IRS. Some titles may include enrolled agents, who are licensed by the IRS, as well as certified public accountants (CPAs). Some tax attorneys may offer tax preparation and planning services, though not all are qualified to do this.

Is it worth it to pay someone to do your taxes?

There are several reasons it could be worth it to have an experienced professional do your taxes instead of self-filing. For example, it can help reduce the chance of you making a mistake that could land you in trouble with the IRS. And, it could save you time for other important tasks. If you have a side job, rental property or many assets, having someone do your taxes can pay off in the short- and long-run.

Contact several tax professionals near you to discuss your needs and get free estimates. Then, decide if hiring a pro is right for you.

Is it better to have a CPA do your taxes?

Hiring a certified public accountant (CPA) could be a better option instead of doing your taxes by yourself, but it depends on your tax situation and preferences. Having a CPA do your taxes is usually recommended if you have a business or any type of side job, or if you’ve been contacted by the IRS for a tax-related matter. Others who can benefit are those who own rental properties or have many assets. You can also hire a CPA if you need help understanding what deductions or credit you might qualify for.

Can I use digital payments to pay for tax preparation services?

Before you hire a tax professional, visit their business profile to see how they handle payments. Many CPAs and tax experts accept digital payments through Venmo, PayPal, Square Cash, Zelle and other online platforms. More businesses may be changing their payment methods to accommodate social distancing. Check with your tax preparer to see how they handle payments. 

Does a tax preparer need to enter my home?

It is not typically necessary for a tax preparer to enter your home. Many CPAs and tax professionals operate remotely. Ask the tax professional if they can conduct their services remotely, and see what precautions they have in place during social distancing.

It’s the first time I’ve used Stephane’s services and I find him to be informative, definitely communicative and knowledgeable. Every time I’ve called, he’s always answered or has followed up very shortly after, which is important to me. Getting my taxes done with Stephane was a seamless process and looking forward to working with him as my tax preparer in the future. Thank you! G

I'm pleased I hired Green Financial Services to prepare my 2016 tax returns. Shaunte knows her business well and is very easy to work with. Also, five stars for patiently working through certain tech challenges that arose during the return number crunching and paperwork completion process.

Mark is a professional. When I first talked with him, I knew I liked him. I wish I did become a lawyer or a CPA, I feel really comfortable with Mark. If things change I will let this website know, but I do not feel there will be any issues. I am going through a divorce and owe back taxes for 2015. Mark is preparing court documents for me for a decent price that should help me protect some of my assets and limit my tax burden from a sale of a home. Thank you.

I recently retained Mark to prepare my personal and business taxes and was pleasantly surprised by his immediate response and professionalism. He took the time to hear me out and offered his sound professional opinion for my situation. His knowledge and years of experience definitely shows, he is an expert in his field. He has gained a customer for life.

I had this great idea that I was going to do my own taxes this year, on my own. So I picked one of those online "Do it yourself" tax preparation sites and the more time I spent on it the more confusing it got. So after hours of beating my head against the wall and feeling so defeated I decided to pay someone to do them for me. I found Cheryl on Thumbtack and was very pleased with her many reviews. Called her and she was able to squeeze me in with such short notice. :-) Cheryl had a way of putting me at ease within the first 15 minutes of meeting her. I was very happy with the service she provided me and I will definitely be back. Thank you Cheryl

I needed someone to clean up a disastrous attempt at a complex tax return that was prepared elsewhere. I had already spent 8 hours, 200 miles and 4 hours of driving to and from on 4 trips, and PAID for the return prep only to find the last attempt to have the return done was still wrong. (HINT: Don't use IQTAXX) Cheryl met with me right away, she dug into the details, was willing to take the time to look things up that were a little more complicated, and patiently waded through the process. It took a bit of time, but again, it was a complex return, but in the end she got it 100% correct - and on the first try. She was patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. She took this project on as though a challenge she planned to win - and she did! I plan to return to her for other tax returns and will be happy to refer business her way!
