With all of the new tax changes and updates, I always prepare a return with the client's individual situations in mind. I try to help with any missing documents by contacting the company or health connector or by helping the client create accounts for IRS and DOR, etc. I enjoy preparing returns, difficult returns, easy returns, individual and business returns. I like getting to know clients and learning things about them, i.e. child on the way, buying or selling a house, taking in a loved one to care for, etc.; and not to just give them guidance for their next years return, but to have a connection with them....

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.
