Working with Richard we extremely pleasant. He made filing our taxes the most painless experience we have ever encountered. I would highly recommend his service to anyone. We have an 18month old and he was able to complete all of our documents remotely via email, his portal, and telephone calls. This made the process so simple. He has also given us very helpful information for the 2015 tax season to help us get the maximum return possible next year.

I would like to introduce you to Tim Thompson, CPA. I have personally known Tim for twenty-five years. I meet Tim through the placement department at SMU while he was working on his MBA. I had changed careers from the Computer Networking Business to the Automotive Retail Business. Our dealerships needed some analytical and financial analysis work that I had access to in the Computer world but not in the Retail Automotive world. He worked part time at The Bledsoe Automotive Group while he was attending school. Our business relationship and friendship has evolved over the years. Mr. Thompson’s, resume speaks for itself. Tim, is a unique business person with a special set of skills. First off, he is a very qualified personable CPA and Tax Advisor. He understands the operational insides of most businesses. Tim’s, resume speaks for itself. He is very bright and is a terrific problem solver. He can tackle the most complex tax returns and handle the simple one’s as well. He uses the most state of the art tax preparation software provided by Thompson-Reuters. He has prepared returns for our Family Limited Partnership, Personal Returns, Children’s returns and handles other business interest returns such as BBC Motorsports. He also serves as an advisor/ controller, as we deal with many everyday business and personal challenges. His firm offers many of the benefits of very large CPA firms services. He has a monthly newsletter, a secure client portal for easy personal data access and provides each client with a yearly electronic tax organizer. He is very accessible. I would highly recommend this practice for both personal and business tax and accounting advice. Randy Courtney

Team at Codex helped me with book-keeping and running my live payroll. Our company had over 20 employees at the time and I've been very happy with the service I've received. The checks and direct deposits and done accurately anf timely and all the tax payments were remitted on time. This saved me a lot of headache and helped me focus on building my business. They are excellent to work remotely as my business was in Colorado and they were able to do book-keeping, payroll and tax from Texas. Highly recommended if you want things done by professionals (while being on a budget)

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.
