Everyone’s tax return is a little different. Many big chains or CPAs charge you by the form, which can greatly increase the price you pay.

My average fee is based on the time it takes to prepare your return -- not on the number of forms required to do it right.

Below are average prices (subject to change), but call for a specific quote for your situation.

  • Simple returns (former 1040EZ) with wages (W2), Unemployment and/or some interest income ($99 plus $15 per dependent)
  • Moderate returns (former 1040A) with the above plus pension, Social Security, and/or dividend income ($159 plus $15 per dependent)   
  • Long form (1040) with the above plus Schedule A (itemized deductions either on Federal or State return) ($229 plus $15 per dependent)

All prices include: electronic filing of your federal and state returns and refund direct deposit at no extra charge.

Additional fees may apply based on your specific situation for self employment, investment property, 1031 exchanges, or other non-standard returns.

Additional fees may also apply for the earned income credit or multiple credits on one return.
