I have never been happier about any other business decision as I am about hiring and retaining this tax accounting firm. This company had a great customer service quality, work ethic, knowledge and complete professionalism. Apart from helping me complete my accounting books and filing the tax returns, the company has also helped me apply for finances. With their help, I was able to get approved for bank loans on two occasions when I needed to grow the business and take it to the next level. I am amazed at their dedication towards clients and how helpful they are to see us succeed. If you want an accounting partner who provides great insights about your business and helps you succeed at every level, then Legacy Tax Resolution is the company for you.

I’ve been using their tax audit and filing services for the last 5 years and never had a problem. They have a competent and knowledgeable team. On a couple of occasions, one of their tax preparers has told us how some new changes in local law would let us save taxes. They take a proactive approach, which I think is quite nice. While the firm is quite easy to get in touch with throughout the year, they are more difficult to get a hold of during tax season, especially in April, as a new client. I would recommend getting your taxes filed through them in March by the latest, unless you are an old client that they know. Overall my experience with them has been positive and I would recommend them.


First, I really don't think there are others that are doing what I am doing in regards to true pro-active tax planning. I offer guaranteed tax reduction for your small business, personal coaching on strategies and how to make the tax code work for you so that you get the most IRS approved documented deductions you are entitled to. If its general accounting and QuickBooks, I have the ability to quickly and accurately help you with a system that works for you. I have fixed and simplified the recording and reporting for many QuickBooks users that the bookkeeper/accountant/CPA just was not using the system the way it was meant to be used.

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.
