We had some issues with our previous tax preparer, and went to a chain but found out they could not handle returns for an S-Corp. Rochelle was extremely professional AND fast! She asked us the right questions, and quickly prepared our returns. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to family, friends and others on Thumbtack!

I did my taxes with Tri-state accounting and I have to say I was impressed. They were extremely professional to work with and offered outstanding client service. Additionally, they offer an array of services that as a small business owner I need including tax, bookeeping, payroll and tax planning. I recommend Tri State accounting to all-and I look forward to many more years of working with them!

    Hiring the services of Dean was excellent. He was quick and straight to the point attending my request and preparing my 2013 tax return. I have a complex international situation that most tax advisors I had contacted previously did not know how to deal with. Some even adviced me in the wrong way, as I learned later after doing research and educating myself on the topic. On the contrary, Dean is an International tax expert and answered to all my questions in a timely and precise fashion and presented all documentation in an extremely tidy and neat way. Also his fees are totaly reasonable. I would definitely recommend working with Dean.

    I recently moved from California which has a slightly different tax code and my accounting books became very complex because of the move between the two states. I tried to hire a bunch of accountants but they withdrew after taking a look at my books. As the tax deadline approached, I became quite desperate and started panicking because I didn’t want to be penalized for not filing my tax returns. That is when I came in touch with Legacy Tax Resolution. Their accountants are very smart and have a decent knowledge of tax legislation as they’ve worked in multiple states. Within a week, they had helped me move my accounting practices and also prepared the complete return to be filed with the IRS. They make even the most difficult problems appear easy and simple.

    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.
