Stewart was very accommodating in preparing my taxes for me. Was able to meet with me on short notice and was very professional. Had my taxes done the same day and I could not be happier with the experience. I will be using his services again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone needing tax preparation assistance.

Bill is awesome. We were blessed to have him do our taxes this year. If I need another tax professional it is because Bill is not available.

The work I requested was for Mr. Harrison to review all sources of income and to determine the proper withholding that I should claim during the year and what (if any) extra money should be withheld so as to insure that when filing time came; I would owe nothing and they (government) would owe me, at most $1,000 (state & feds combined). This task was necessary as I had been previously having too much money taken out of my checks which resulted in having state & federal returns so high that it got me audited by both governments. When I asked for bids on the work to be done; he contacted me within THREE minutes. Of course, I received several other bids but declined them because: 1. One offered to do the work for FREE but had no Webb site explaining his services or experience or address and a phone call to the gentleman did not add any clarity to the situation. (When your "gut" says "no", listen to it. It'll be louder than the word FREE. (2) The 2nd offer of service came from a well established firm with a very long and very credible service record. Their office was closer to me and their bid was the exact same down to the penny as Mr. Harrison's. I declined their services because their bid included the implication that the bid match was to get me in the door and that my case would most likely require more than one hour of work and that I'd be billed in 30 minute increments. Long story short: This service provider met my bid but did so with an implied disclaimer. While my assessment could have been wrong, I perceived that to be a "bait and switch" tactic. As for Mr. Harris, he met the bid, gave a choice of when and where to meet so that I wouldn't have to drive all the way (about 20 miles) to his office and he offered nights and weekend service at no extra charge if I needed it. We met, he was on time, friendly, very well prepared and had great command of the subject. Very professional, down to earth, with lots of patience. With him, no question is a dumb question. And finally, although I didn't ask for a written report/assessment of his advice and actually declined his offer to make one (since that wasn't in my criteria advertised), he made me one ANY WAY at no extra charge. Mr. Harrrison (Scott is how he likes to be addressed) will be my "go to" guy for all future tax or accounting problems. I have nothing but praise for the man.

Can't say enough great things about Edna. She was able to work my wife and I into her schedule a week before tax day and still had our returns completed a full two days prior to 4/18. She was very knowledgeable about all the nuances we had questions about and gave us a multitude of tips for when we file next year. Highly recommend!

Amit helped me file my tax returns in Richmond, Va. He was very quick, but also very thorough. He helped me find deductions that I didn't know I had. The cost was a little high for my income level, but he put my mind at ease, very quickly!

Legacy Tax Resolution is one of the best tax consulting companies if not the best. They have a capable, professional team and really know their stuff. I was in a bind with the IRS and panicking after I neglected submitting my returns with them for two years. I spoke to one of the consultants from this firm and she was quite helpful on the phone. Her quick response and knowledge gave me a lot of confidence to hire them. They contacted the IRS on my behalf and went over the details with them. One of their accountants worked with me to prepare the returns, which they filed with the IRS. It took about a month for the whole thing to get resolved and we reached an agreement. I never had to call the IRS myself and I didn’t get any calls from them either. I did receive a letter which stated the terms of the agreement which was exactly what I needed. Great Service.

Ms.Lowe was absolutely outstanding!! I have never received the type of service and care she provided at any other tax place. I had a thousand questions even a few hypothetical not only did she go into to explain she also knew the laws and regulation to support it. Her assistant was super friendly. I was worried I would owe this year and she broke it all down for in great detail. I appreciated her patience so much, this is the most I have ever gotten back she knows about all the deductions #hugesmile it was just a quote but she treated me as if I was her only client as if her business only cared about me. The turnaround time on her responses were phenomenal. I work in a Finance unit with the Army and I referred her to everyone I liked!! I cannot wait until we can submit everything and I get my gift card!!!! And before I forget did I mention I did not have to leave my house?! Being a single mom of three kids it sucks to pay for child care or try to keep them quiet but with Ms. Lowe she was super flexible and worked her schedule around mine. If you aren't filing with her you are making a mistake. Competitive prices, gift cards, quotes, flexible schedule, virtual help, knowledgeable staff who could ask for more??

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.
