Marcus H. says, "They have a great customer service. I don’t remember the name of the girl I talked to but she was really sweet and polite when requesting for my accounting records. I was later assigned to one of their auditors who went over my records and sorted out the tax notice I had got in the mail. I had received a notice of unpaid taxes from the IRS for $7,000 which could not be correct as I only work part-time as a stay-at-home mom. The nice auditor on the phone asked me details of the notice and assured me that they would get it sorted out. I received a call from the IRS agent two days later, apologizing for the mistake. It was an interesting experience and I am very thankful to the Legacy Tax Resolution Service."See more

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Do tax preparers offer remote or virtual services?

Contact local CPAs or tax professionals to see if they can offer their services without in-person contact. Many firms can operate remotely or virtually, and others that typically operate face-to-face may be changing their procedures to keep up with social distancing guidelines. 

How much do accountants charge for tax help?

On average, individual tax preparation services cost $242, and prices typically range from $137- $454. However, many factors can impact how much an accountant will charge you for tax assistance. For an accurate price estimate, request quotes from several certified public accountants (CPAs) near you. 

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.

I enjoyed working with Joey. He replied to my messages promptly, was very flexible in scheduling time to connect over the phone. He is very knowledgeable and explains tax terms in simple terms. I would recommend Joey to anyone who's looking for tax advice/preparation and would like to work with him again.

I found MRS Services using Thumbtack. I was a little skeptical using an online tax preparer. But after speaking with Andrea and Monica at MRA, their knowledge and expertise gave me the reassurance that I needed to feel confident about their work

For everyone who's considering her service, I strongly do not recommend it. I was hesitant to use the service when I noticed an one star review; however, I went with her and had a very negative experience. 1st issue: not keeping her words when sending a tax return at certain time - happened twice 2nd issue: she claimed that I owe tax this time. When I asked clarifying questions, she admitted her employee made a mistake. It is evident that she has an incapable employee and does not review their work. 3rd issue: no question/request for deduction around IRA contribution, and she could not define how much was "large" medical expense for me to request deduction. Ultimately, trust was something that was not possible in her service. I hope my review helps someone; and, please find another tax preparer who can do your tax return preparation correctly.

Atabu was great. I was a little uncertain about this whole process and he made me feel comfortable. His expertise in tax preparation was exceptional. I look forward to working with Mr. Otobo for many years to come and highly recommend him.

Adam Short is spectacular! He has deep knowledge of the details of tax preparation, he responds to emails almost immediately, and he's endlessly patient with clients like me who are full of questions. He has very high standards, and doesn't take any short cuts - he makes sure that the tax filing will sail through IRS scrutiny by getting every detail in place. His fees are extremely reasonable; the costs are directly related to how simple or complicated the tax return will be. Overall, it was a total pleasure to work with Adam. I recommend him enthusiastically and without any reservation!

My tax filings not only included two different jobs but also a scholarship component. Despite the complexity of my situation, Mr. Atabu was always on top of everything and had answer to all my questions. He was very knowledgeable, motivated, and always accessible. I would recommend Mr. Atabu to anyone looking for quality tax preparation for a very fair price. I know I will be using his services again next year.

Best tax preparer I've worked with in years. Jimmy was a last-minute replacement for my mother's regular CPA who became ill. He did the job on time, and got her back all the money she was due. Thanks, Jimmy! See you next year.

My experience so far with Mr. Small has been excellent. He professionally prepared my 2014 return very timely and researched several issues with the IRS on my behalf. I would highly recommend his services to anyone with the easy to the most complex tax situations. Very responsive.

Mr. Otobo did an outstanding job to prepare my income taxes for 2014. I'm a non-resident alien and totally underestimated what it means to file taxes in the U.S. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical in the beginning whether he will be able to help me, given I had two negative experiences with H&RBlock before due to my uncommon tax status. Though, Mr. Otobo was not only super flexible to accommodate my schedule and the very short deadline I had put myself in, he also was incredibly fast and proved that he knows the tax system in and out from the very first minute. He understood my foreign / dual-status tax situation immediately and answered all my questions without any need to look up information. While I mainly just wanted him to file my taxes on time to avoid fees and stop worrying about the situation, Mr. Otobo found countless additional deductions and increased the amount of refunds I got significantly. 11/10 will do it again.

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.

Marie handled 2 of my returns including a late filing from a previous year. She was super responsive and handled all my questions quickly and professionally. Both returns were completed in record time for a very reasonable price too! I highly recommend Marie for tax preparation services and will hire her again next year.

I needed a new CPA after my previous preparer died at age 86 and with whom I’d had a 26 year long relationship. Discovering Ahad in my area, I found him to be not only professional, unassuming and sharp, but also understanding and kind. My taxes were done properly, promptly and liabilities inherent in my corporate and personal situations put to rest. I highly recommend him.

Such a great experience! Ive never had my taxes prepared by someone else before, so I was very hesitant, but upon completion, I was ecstatic at the ease and professionalism in this case. I reached out to him on Tuesday, and my taxes were totally finished by Friday- He worked around my crazy schedule and met with me twice during the week, asking tons of questions to ensure I got the most deductions possible. As a model, I had tons of 1099s and other random forms that I was stressed over, but he made the process a breeze! And his rate is so worth it for the amazing service you'll receive. Id recommend him to anyone!!

My experience here was Great. Was my 1st time coming here and I got this off of thumtack app. My tax preparer was Oscar which was so patient with me overall with my forms and just me as a individual 😅 because I was a nervous wreck. We was able to get the balance down lower than what H&R block offered me so that was a plus . Also the fee to process was also a good price very affordable 👍. Would definitely recommend you all to give it a shot and ask for Oscar. Im definitely coming back next year. You have the option to do it virtually online but I like to do in person visits. Thanks again Oscar for all your help. I'm at ease now.
