Ken is a thorough and concise with the work he has done from a previous tax year. I had W-2's, business, and various other forms from that year and was able to accomplish the filing within a good timeframe considering the complexity of my filing. We were in constant communication via phone, text, and email. He gave me the best strategies to reduce my tax liability and to reduce taxes that I may owe (if any) to the mean state and fed IRS. I would recommend Ken's services to anyone who needs a professional and knowledgeable person. Thank you Ken for your timely and enjoyable services.

Keith was extremely professional and prompt in his communication and coordination. He has extensive knowledge of tax preparation and tax laws and leveraged his knowledge and expertise to give my husband and I the best outcome for our taxes. We had a unique filing situation and he very clearly explained everything to us. We are very happy with his service and will definitely use him to file our taxes for 2018.

If you live in the Hampton Roads area and need a competent and reliable tax professional, but do not want to pay inflated commercial fees, then go see Paul Allen at PIM Tax Services, LLC. Paul handled mine, and another family member’s complex tax returns from multiple states. He was professional, available, knowledgeable, but most importantly, he was more than fair on the price. Paul is a former service member and well experienced in dealing with our military member’s tax returns. As a military member myself, I found that Paul also empathizes with our budget and TIME constraints. If you go to one of the many commercial tax services that only come around during tax season, be prepared to pay a lot of money for a impersonal, hurried experience. This is the exact opposite with Paul. At PIM Tax Services, you will get a one-on-one consultation with honestly assessed charges, and Paul will make himself available to fit into your schedule. I found Paul on thumbtack, and he was quick to reply with pertinent questions that both helped him assess how complicated my return would be, and helped me weed through the tax professionals that were only after my cash!.... Strangely enough, Paul actually enjoys the intricacies of the tax structure, so I was happy I found him. I met with him, provided my documents through his secure and user-friendly process, corresponded with him over email a few times, signed my forms, and got my returns. It was that easy! Do yourself a favor and at least give Paul Allen a call or email. You will find that he will make the stresses of tax season easy on your mind and wallet. We will be using Paul for as long as he is in business!

I never thought my taxes could be so painless! He is organized and makes sure to remind clients of any missing documents without being too pushy. I was on the verge on not being able to prove my correct filing and he expertly navigated the process!

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.
