Our experience with JayBrian Multi Services was a very pleasant one. We are in our first year of business & were a little apprehensive about the cost of hiring a tax professional, but to our surprise & delight, the cost was VERY reasonable. Upon meeting Jan Paul for the first time, we were immediately put at ease because of his level of education, experience and the fact that he's just a really nice guy! He is easy to talk to & conveys information in easy to understand terms. He completed our taxes within one week of our first visit! That was awesome! We have found our go-to tax accountant! Thanks a million!

My experience with Accounting & Tax was amazing, Christine was excellent and I would highly recommend her for Tax Management. She was very professional, personable, and very knowledgeable regarding tax preparation. The turn-around time for my tax return as promised 1 to 2 days.

Fantastic! Had our taxes done in much less time than I had spent with previous tax professionals and at a better rate. Additionally, the amount I paid for tax preparation was even lower than quoted! I would highly recommend Thomas at Tri-County Booking & Tax Services.

Max did an exceptional job with my tax records. He is extremely knowledgeable in this field and knows all the fine details to provide the best service. He is very responsive when communicating with him and able to complete tasks quickly. He is professional, kind, and great with simplifying the subject details that are not necessarily in my “scope of practice.” I highly recommend anyone who gets the opportunity to work with him!

I had heard stories of people receiving IRS notices about back taxes out of nowhere. I hadn’t filed a tax return for 10 years so I was always a bit anxious. Then the day I had dreaded came when my employer told me that the IRS had contacted them directly and requested garnishing my paycheck. I was in tough spot as I couldn’t afford a garnished paycheck. I began looking for legal representation and chose Legacy Tax Resolution Services. They completed all the necessary paperwork and then negotiated directly with the IRS on my behalf. I ended up getting a sweet deal.

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.
