Jack King is a true professional! I’m a REALTOR with a very busy schedule and Jack was very diligent in reminding me of upcoming deadlines to file my taxes and when it came down to actually preparing and submitting my taxes, he made everything easy to understand and helped me and my family find tax savings that we weren’t even aware of! All in all, we received a refund and we attribute it to Jack’s expertise and tremendous knowledge in the area of tax preparation. I’m a customer for life!

We had relatively basic tax preparation work. Karen was helpful, personable, accurate, and available on short notice. I would definitely use her again.

I was thrilled to discover the TaxBunny, Michael Johnson, to prepare my tax return. Being a new resident to WA, I was unfamiliar with state tax regulations. What I especially appreciated was the depth of his expertise and the range of questions that he asked involving potential deductions. He took the time to carefully discuss my situation. I highly recommend this competent professional.

I've done my own taxes for years and met with Stephen about a specific tax question. He was able to quickly answer my questions and provide IRS references. He saved me hours of reading, not to mention reducing my anxiety. He was timely, friendly, and charged only for the time he spent on me, which was less than the going rate for professional tax advice. Wish I'd of found him years ago.

This was our first year having Pfeiffers Accounting prepare our tax returns. Jeanine is very professional, knowledgeable, and flexible. Her preparation was fast and she even found extra deductions for us. We will definitely use Pfeiffers Accounting next year.

First of all Mrs. Maclean was so very nice. I thought I was prepared but after we were going through my tax preparation I realized I was still missing a few documents. Mrs Maclean was so patient and assisted in recovering the documents I needed. She has definitely gained another client.

I've really enjoy working with Lily! She's been a lifesaver handling my business's bookkeeping needs, and is very thorough. She also goes above and beyond to connect me with other local businesses, networking groups, and resources. She's easy to contact, responds promptly, and answers all of my questions, regardless of how large or small. I know I'm in good hands working with her, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing some extra bookkeeping and tax preparation help!

I retained Bill's services when I received a notice from the IRS last year. It said I owed money from a property I neglected to include in my tax return due to a pending divorce. I had no idea which of the property my former spouse has acquired that generated the amount due with the IRS, but like a forensic accountant, Bill was able to figure out which property "owed" money and even better, came to the conclusion the IRS was in error. To me, that was a better result than anyone can hope for. Bill and his staff will be my "go to" accounting firm from now on. Bill is very, very adept at what he does and I feel extremely confident with his ability to handle all my financial dealings.

About

I am certified in QuickBooks ProAdvisor. I do federal tax returns for businesses and individuals -- 1040, 1120, 1120-S, 1065, 941, 940, 1099 and W-2. I also do Washington State taxes, such as employment and excise, sales and use tax. Running a small business means you have a daunting number of rules and deadlines to follow for compliance. With my past experience as controller in the private industry, in addition to experience in public accounting, I understand the demands, both financial and nonfinancial, that you face. I specialize in easing you through the maze with as much or as little help as you want at affordable rates. It's so much easier (and cheaper) to get everything set up correctly from the start. To encourage beginning businesses to start off right, I will resume my $75 QuickBooks setup special (up to two hours) until tax season begins in mid-January.

Caryl responded to me about amending previous year tax returns. She was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about how I should handle a mistake I had made on a property depreciation issue. Not only did she thoroughly respond to my emails, but she made time to discuss and give me her opinion on the phone at no cost to me whatsoever. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Caryl and Shoreline Tax Solutions to anyone with tax preparation or amendment needs.

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.
