Verified review

I hired PIM Tax for my business and personal taxes for my family. From the start, Paul was great. He answered every question i had, and made me feel confident I was not only getting the max refund possible, but that i was following all guidelines correctly, from a business standpoint. He responds to emails usually within an hour or so. I had several tricky tax situations this year and Paul handled every single one of mine. He went above and beyond the exceptions i had. I would recommend PIM Tax to anyone who wants their taxes done easily.

He is incredibly knowledgeable and very on point. Mr. Nations is a bull dog when it comes to getting things done with the IRS! He is one of only a handful of Enrolled Agents that work closely with the IRS and that enables him to be efficient and get results much quicker than you could handling tax issues with the IRS yourself.

Having started a new small business this past year making jewelry and having not submitted Schedule C before, we requested D&B Financial and Consulting Services review our tax return for correctness. Duane and Beatrice were perfect advisers for us. Besides being very friendly and approachable, they took great care to understand our needs and particular situation, answer our questions in a manner we understand, and make recommendations that are legally sound and in our best interest. Their personal experience with their own small businesses gave us something in common, making it very easy to work with them. We appreciate their enthusiasm and their desire to help new business owners.

During my first meeting with Lee, he put me at ease, asked and answered a ton of questions, and even gave me some "homework" to do to ensure that everything will go smoothly. I look forward to working with Coastal Tax Service.

    Verified review

    Outstanding experience! Initially I was hesitant to use a cpa firm out of state. I thought I would need that face to face contact. However, this quickly changed from the first initial email exchange with Kathy Fett. Her personal touch and expertise in this field made me feel like I was dealing with a cpa down the street. She was quick to answer all my questions. Speedy turnaround from the get-go. This has been my first good (not to mention great!) experience working with a cpa to do my taxes for me and to carry this burden. I will be back to Xpress CPA as long as Kathy Fett is there! - Marty

    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.
