Curious about what I charge for tax preparation?
I'm competitive with the national tax firms, lower than most CPA firms and a true value. Your cost is based on the complexity of your income tax return, without regard to the amount of your tax refund or time taken to prepare your return, and new clients receive a 10% introductory discount.
How it works: Unlike many firms, I don't charge by the hour for most of my services or by the form. I provide upfront pricing which means you'll know and agree to my fees prior to making any commitment. Once I have at least all material information required to prepare the return, I determine my fee based on your unique tax needs.
How Much Does It Really Cost You To Prepare Your Personal Tax Return?
Many taxpayers think that the latest tax software is all you need for accurate income tax preparation. While I fully relate to the desire to DIY, self-preparation of taxes can be expensive in both time and money. These software programs can often help you file an accurate tax return, but may not inform you of other potential options to save money.
Do you think you're saving money by preparing your tax returns yourself? Think again. If you make $30 per hour and it takes you 5 hours (source: IRS for preparation and filing) of your valuable time to prepare and file your returns, then it just cost you $150. That's 5 hours you could have been spending with the family, fixing something or just relaxing. Then add the cost of the software at approximately $100. That's $250.
Don't relax just yet. If you happened to make a mistake, that could cost you another $387 (the lowest average cost of taxpayer errors). Now you're looking at a total of $637, or more, to do it yourself. And, if you don't file on time, then you can add interest and penalties on top of the other costs.
You Can Miss Deductions With DIY Tax Software
If you prepare your own tax returns, you are probably a do-it-yourself-er who likes to fix or build things to save money. One of the many reasons people go through the headache of filing their own taxes is a false belief that they are saving money.
Lose Big Money Filing Your Own Taxes
Did you know that in a recent tax study by financial expert, Dave Ramsey, the average do-it-yourself tax preparer lost between $387 and $841 when compared to the same returns prepared by tax professionals?
Why? The average taxpayer doesn't know every deduction available to them, even with the help of online tax software. Tax filing software is updated once a year to handle the major tax changes and can unintentionally omit small, specific deductions. If you have multi-state returns, forget it. The errors are too many to mention.
Tax filing software may actually be costing you more. Just because you found a place to put a number in the tax software, doesn't mean it was the most advantageous place to put it from a tax perspective-leaving hundreds of dollars in Uncle Sam's pocket.
