Our tax preparer retired so we needed to find a new one. I am so glad we found Monique. She is pleasant, professional and gets the taxes done efficiently and on time. As our taxes involve difficult situations it was wonderful to find someone who really knows all aspects of tax preparation. I highly recommend her without reservation.

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.

    Jenna made the transition from "single with nothing complicated" to "married small-business owner with kids" really easy on me! I'm confident that I'm not leaving money on the table at tax time, and I appreciate how quickly my returns are completed.

    I used to do my taxes using Turbo Tax and thought that having a CPA to do my taxes is not cost-effective. I thought, how much more money can they really save me. I decided to use Excellence Tax Services in 2011 to do my taxes based on a recommendation and I got more than $1,000 more on my taxes!!! I couldn't believe it!!! They asked good questions and helped me assess what things are tax-deductible based on my situation. I referred them to a friend who was so happy that she went to Excellence Tax Services. She found out that H&R Block filed her taxes incorrectly. Excellence Tax Services filed her taxes correctly that year and also amended her previous tax return for a fraction of the cost...she saved over $2,000! They are very professional, honest, intelligent, and provide excellent quality services! Ask for Priscila when you go in...she's the best!

    Kim was great to work with, and very responsive. After initially preparing my return online, I realized I was missing forms the program didn't prompt me to fill out. Lesson learned - use an accountant! After finding Kim and meeting with her, my returns were completed very fast, she answered my questions and explained tax changes. She really made the process easy and would recommend her service and will use again!

    I worked with this company recently after switching jobs. My salary tax deductions had been messed up and I ended up owing the IRS a huge sum of money in terms of back taxes for the last three years. The IRS had issued a wage garnishment order to my new employer which was completely unacceptable as it would have really jeopardized my job. I was very stressed out and at the end of my wits when I contacted Legacy Tax & Resolution. This firm clicked with me right from the beginning. Their consultant on the phone was very friendly and assured me that the wage garnishment order can be negotiated and reversed. I later worked with the preparer who went over my taxes for the past three years and they also contacted the IRS. In the end, the order was removed by the IRS as we reached a deal for payment of taxes for the next three years. I am quite relieved and highly recommend their service to other people in a similar situation.

    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.
