Tax Preparation Pricing & Payment Options

I charge much less than a CPA or attorney, and less even than those big chain tax stores. That’s because I don’t have the overhead of a large office or national TV advertising. Most others won’t tell you their prices until after you are already in their office, figuring you won’t make the effort to leave once you are there.

And I won’t nickle-and-dime you to death with extra fees. I won’t charge you extra for printing, postage, e-file, direct debit/deposit, or services you don’t need. I won’t try to sell you financial products like high-interest loans, credit cards, or refund advance schemes.

My pricing is straightforward and depends only on the complexity of your tax return. Prices begin at $129.00 for a basic 1040 return. A typical 1040 with itemized deductions will cost between $179-229. (These prices include both the federal and state return.) Those with self-employment or rental income, investment income or losses, or other situations requiring additional forms will pay a little more. Feel free to contact me and I will provide you with a personalized quote based on your tax situation. Try getting that out of a big chain tax store!

Services Included at No Extra Charge

  • Mobile Tax Service – I come to you!
  • E-file with Direct Deposit – receive your refund within 10 days
  • Audit Protection – I review your return for potential “red flags” with the IRS, and help you respond if the IRS contacts you
  • Tax Reduction Strategy – I will tell you things you can do now to save on your taxes next year
  • Return Archival – I keep an encrypted, secure copy of your tax return for 10 years and provide you with a free copy upon request

Payment Options

I accept cash, checks, all major credit cards, Venmo, Zelle, and Cash App. You can make your payment online here.

If you owe taxes, they can be paid by check or direct debit from your bank account, or with a credit card.* I can also help you arrange a payment plan with the IRS if you cannot afford to pay your tax bill all at once.

* A 2.5% fee is charged by the government’s payment provider on taxes paid with a credit card.
     I never charge an extra fee for using a credit card to pay for my services.
