Hello My name is Monte Alamirew. I am a client manager at Assist Financial Group. In this role, I provide bookkeeping and tax preparation services. The foundation for these services is in the education in consultation that I provide individuals and business owners with legitimate and creative ways of reducing tax liability. Many small businesses still need an official accounting department. They operate without a budget. It is the same for tax preparation, so I help clients understand what to file and introduce ways to reduce tax liability. Tax laws change yearly, and I keep up with those changes to communicate with my clients. My vision...

Jerry M. says, "We hired Daniel more than 2 years ago to straighten our QuickBooks program. Daniel completely remapped QuickBooks and got our financials straightened out. We have retained Daniel to assist us in all aspects of our accounting, including preparing our taxes. Since he is a QuickBooks expert, we have been able to drop the QuickBooks support plan, saving us a substantial amount of money. Whenever we have a question or a problem, Daniel always promptly gets us back on track. Whenever we are considering a new program that interfaces with QuickBooks, we always ask Daniel to review the program before we implement it. We are very happy with Daniel, and hope to have a long professional relationship with him." Read more

Your tax preparation questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does tax preparation cost?

Professional tax preparation costs $100 to $500 per return on average, with most individuals spending about $220. While your geographical location may impact the fees, the biggest factors affecting the cost of your tax preparation are the complexity of your tax return and the type of professional you hire. Certified public accountants (CPAs) and tax attorneys typically charge more than Enrolled Agents or non-credentialed seasonal tax professionals.

Is it worth it to pay for tax preparation?

Paying a CPA or tax preparer to do your taxes may be worth it if you have a complex return or have new items or calculations on your taxes that you are not familiar with. If you run a business, buy a house, manage multiple properties, or do anything requiring more than a simple tax return, professional tax preparation can save you time, ensure the return is done correctly, and protect you in the event of an audit or issue.

What is a tax preparer?

A tax preparer is a professional who prepares and files income tax returns for individuals or businesses. While all tax preparers have a preparer tax identification number (PTIN), they have varying levels of education and credentials. The list below includes professionals who can prepare your taxes and represent you in front of the IRS if needed for audits, appeals, or anything related to your return.

  • Enrolled Agent (EA) – An EA is certified by the IRS and can prepare taxes anywhere in the United States.
  • Certified Public Accountant (CPA) – A CPA has education and licensing through the state in which they practice. CPAs
  • Attorney – A licensed tax attorney has passed a state bar exam and earned a law degree. A tax attorney may specialize only in tax preparation or offer several services.

Non-credentialed tax preparers include seasonal tax service employees and the IRS's voluntary Annual Filing Season Program participants. These professionals have a PTIN but may not have formal education or certifications and may not be able to represent you in front of the IRS.

How do I choose the best tax preparation service near me?

When searching for a tax preparation service near you, be sure to:

  • Compare preparation fees from at least three companies that are licensed, bonded, insured, and have been in business 5+ years.
  • Search the IRS's directory for a certified public accountant (CPA) or an Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP).
  • Check their licensing status and look for disciplinary actions against them.
  • Ask for a preparer tax identification number (PTIN).
  • Confirm the tax preparer can represent you for any related audits, payments, or collection issues.
  • Check out their reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Avoid hiring a tax preparer who bases their fee on the size of your tax refund.
  • Confirm that the tax preparer will sign your return.
  • Never sign a blank tax return.

What questions should I ask when searching for tax preparation?

Asking the right questions can help you choose the best tax preparation service for your needs:

  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • What training and credentials do you have?
  • How long have you been preparing taxes?
  • Do you have a guarantee?
  • Can you represent me in front of the IRS if needed?
  • What kinds of returns can you prepare?
  • Do you file electronically?
  • How soon will I get my refund? 
  • What do I need to bring with me to the appointment?

Reviews for Covington tax preparation services

Recent success stories from people in the Covington area.
Amy B.
He's a number wizard. It's my first time having an accountant, and I came to our first meeting feeling pretty ill-prepared. I'm a small business (it's just me) and I felt strange hiring someone to do my books. I thought I should have been able to do it myself. He very soon made me feel comfortable and assured me I'd be fine. Daniel said that it's smart to ask for help, and focus on the things I do best. He prepared a great spreadsheet for me for all my expenses so now I'm set up to fend for myself better. He told me his timeline, updated me as he got things done and had it all finished just as he said he would. I'll definitely have him do my taxes next year.
