Wayne B.

McGovern Tax Services, LLC

I give very few 5 star reviews, but I whole heartedly recommend McGovern Tax Services. I sent out requests to two other providers and I still have not heard from them. Bruce answered my request promptly, worked with me to get my information to him and completed my return in time to meet the Oct 15th deadline with time to spare. Very professional.

Jonathan Wyman, CPA, LLC

I was in the market to find a new and highly reliable individual to prepare my 2016 Federal tax returns. After interviewing several potential candidates provided me through Thumbtack I decided to engage Jonathan Wyman, a CPA, PLLC . Obviously tax preparation is by itslef a daunting and emotional experience and so one hopes for the best! From the outset, Jonathan was absolutely terriffic. After our initial interview he kept me informed at every step of the process, since I am a hands on person I like to know what is going on and why. As such Jonathan kept me in the loop so that at each step in proces from organizing my materials through checking the final product Jonathan kept me informed as to not only what we were doing but why. Ultimately after receiving all of the raw materials Jonathan asked a number of questions which I answered and in turn received the completed forms for my review. After asking a few questions the taxes were completed as promised on time and with my input. I feel absolutely confidant that I made the right choice and I look forward to a pleasant business relationship with Jonathan in the future. He is the best!

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.
