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

We are really happy with Harrell Accounting. Chris gave us a custom monthly package deal that included Quickbooks set up, monthly accounting, payroll, and quarterly taxes for our new and growing business. We feel we are getting valuable controller/CFO level consulting at a price we can afford to pay. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.

Denise waded through piles of paper, held my hand, and never scolded me once about having gotten SO BEHIND on my fiscal responsibilities. She pulled me out of the muck and made everything right. I couldn't be happier with her work.

Mason was great to work with. After meeting with us and discussing our tax situation, he gave us an estimate and did not exceed that price, even when our taxes ended up being more challenging than originally anticipated. We were very comfortable knowing that he would work hard to make the best of what was a crummy tax year for us. I'm very happy with Mason and we will definitely be back next year.

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.

About

I am an accountant who is focused on the tax and accounting needs of small businesses in the greater Seattle and Bellevue areas. My method usually starts with tax preparation. While preparing your return, I become familiar with your business and the issues that you face. From there, I can help you with the questions you have throughout the year as you enter into each major transaction. I like to take it a step further by offering a more proactive and hands-on business coaching model. Under this model, you will meet with me every month to assist you in molding your successful business. I have worked with hundreds of small businesses. I have the experience to be your business advisor, not just your tax advisor.

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.
