Right or wrong, this is often the first question asked by potential tax clients. Unfortunately, many tax accountants save this information until the very end, or entirely omit price information from their web sites. I want you to understand my fees from the start so that you can make an informed choice as to whether you can benefit from my services.
Please keep in mind the fact it is very expensive to do business here in NYC. Admittedly, there are accountants and lawyers who charge half as much as I do. However, there are also accountants and lawyers who charge twice as much me. I believe, with my education, experience, and background, that I can more competently perform twice the work in half the time. The vast majority of my clients recognize the value of professional services and are happy to pay my fees year after year after year.
A NYC taxpayer with a 6 figure income can expect a minimum tax preparation fee of $500. Tax preparation for wealthy taxpayers, self-employed taxpayers, or taxpayers with unusual complications can be significantly higher.
I usually work on a fixed fee basis with new tax clients. I can give a firm price for tax preparation services if you send me a pdf of your prior year tax returns with an explanation of any major changes.
Minimum Consultation Fee is $275.00, payable in advance. It is often productive to have a face to face meeting. However, you may be able to save this additional fee by sending me copies of tax returns and documents along with a list of your questions.
