Ms. Boynton prepared my six un-filed tax returns going back to 2008. She got it done quickly and economically. It was a great relief. I recommend her services for tax preparation and for any tax problem.

2016 tax preparation. Lila was great. I'm not happy that I owe IRS again but she gave me some tips for what to do about it for next year and even called IRS for me in order to help me resolve some 2015 tax issues.

I highly recommend the tax services of E D Johnson. He has a very impressive resume which includes financial services as well as tax preparation. Mr. Johnson is extremely kind with a friendly and positive attitude. He looked at my tax situation as if it were his own. I am very happy with the refund that he was able to find for me. His office is very neatly organized with a kid friendly and comfortable waiting area. He went above and beyond his duty by meeting with me during the weekend, which was most convenient for me. I will most definitely be returning to Mr. Johnson for my tax preparation services from now on. Not only have I found a life long tax preparer but another life long friend as well

Malissa Wheeler prepared our 2014 income tax return. Malissa was very thorough and patient with us because of the extent of our filing. As soon as we started working with Malissa, her knowledge and experience was evident and we knew we made the right choice. Every encounter we've had with Malissa, she's been professional, courteous, has paid attention to detail and has shared expert tax advise; in our situation, (domestic & foreign tax incorporation). Up to this point, Malissa has done an outstanding job, with representation, amendments and correspondence. We are more than happy to have her prepare our 2015 tax return and we highly recommend her to anyone in the Greater Austin area.

Despite being in different states, getting my income taxes done could not be easier. I scan the documents and email them to Community Income Tax. A copy of the completed forms is emailed back to me. Included is the form I sign electronically and return by email. Community Income Tax e-files my taxes and then mails me a paper copy of everything. My refund goes directly to my checking account. Leesa makes it simple, easy, and stress free! Thank you!

Steve is very honest and explained my filing to me. My filing was a bit more complicated which is why I sought out a tax preparer. I would definitely recommend him. He is knowledgeable and up to date with current tax requirements. He is also very reasonably priced and easy to talk to.

    Zach was very professional and prepared my taxes quickly and efficiently. I normally do them myself, but after some life changes this past year I wasn't sure if I would be missing anything important. He answered every question I had about what was different about this year's tax process. Filing this year was definitely hassle free, I will definitely be using Zach's services again

    Norman did a great job on my taxes. He was so efficient because he knew what he was doing. He gave me good advice on tax implications for selling my house that I wasn't even aware of. He's my tax man from now on!

    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.
