After moving we needed a local tax person and started working with Freddie a few years ago. She makes the grulling tax process easy and is very accommodating to difficult schedules. We have since then referred 2 people and both very happy with service and rate.

Dwight was able to quickly grasp our somewhat unique business structure and show us how to set up our accounts in QB Online properly. He is great at explaining QB and how to use it, and offered advice on business structure and some tax stuff. He tutored me on how to do some new things in QB as well. We will definitely be working with him again in the future when we have questions or just for a "tune up". He has been responsive and easy to reach. I highly recommend hiring Dwight to help with your accounting and QB needs.

I started using their service last year after finding their website online. I was running late on filing the tax return for my business. Not only did they help me file the tax return on time, they even helped me get a tax refund which I didn’t even know was in the cards. They are a good, professional firm and quite knowledgeable in the tax area. What I really appreciated was the level of courtesy and attention I got from them. I run a small business and I didn’t think they’d give me the same level of service they gave to their bigger clients. But they really impressed me with their high standard of service. I used them again this year to go over my accounts and filed the taxes through them. I would rate this firm as A plus.

    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.
