Tax preparation went very smoothly and was well worth the price to not have to worry about doing it myself. The program Joelee used to prepare our taxes was very informative and organized very well. All of our questions were answered. No problems at all.

Merrill has been our tax accountant since we moved to Utah a year and a half ago. He has been very helpful and knowledgeable, both for our family taxes and for my small business. He has answered a lot of questions for me, always in a timely, knowledgeable, and prompt fashion. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for both personal and small business taxes.

Meeting an accountant for the first time can be an anxious and stressful time due to the nature of tax preparation. Bill was extremely friendly and knowledgable. This combination put me at ease right from the start. Bill listened to me and my situation and was very thorough in my tax preparation. I am glad I found him, and would recommend anyone I know to let Bill take the stress out of tax preparation.

I always find my self stressed out during tax season because of how complex and difficult I find it to be to file returns. Tyler helped me file my Sales and Use Tax for my business, walking me through every step and answering all my questions. He was extremely helpful, has a great understanding, and was very honest. He taught me how to submit my own return so that I could do it myself next time. I would definitely recommend Tyler to anyone and would trust him anytime, with any of your tax preparation needs.

    We have every confidence in Dwight Goodwin’s personal integrity. He’s been our accountant for over twenty years. Our association began when we acquired rental property. His knowledge of tax structure then, and, as it has changed, has been invaluable. We have never received a challenge from the IRS. Dwight confers in person with us regarding our tax documents making certain we have all that are required. In a timely manner, he returns to us meticulous IRS documents to be mailed or electronically filed. He has been available to advise us regarding any tax questions which might come up during the year. His fees have been commensurate with current trends. Dwight has a pleasant demeanor; he’s patient, and respectful. You’ll enjoy working with him.

    We had our Tax person for over 20 years, but were very fortunate to have found Jason locally here in North Ogden. He did a no hassle, thorough service for our 2015 taxes. Jason pointed out things our old accountant should have, but did not. Great service. Wishing you to grow quickly! All the Best for your Business!

      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.
