Our fees for straightforward individual tax returns run from $200 to $500. If you’ve got a sole proprietorship, real estate investments, have been day-trading, or need state returns, tax preparation fees typically run from $500 to $1500.

Tax preparation fees for actively operated C and S-corporations (Scorp), LLCs and partnerships start at around $750 but can quickly rise in cost based on the complexity of the return and on the amount of year-end accounting that we need to do in order to get your accounting records in the condition needed to prepare your tax return. An involved C or S corporation federal return for a small business, for example, often runs somewhere between $2000 and $4000.

Tax preparation fees for estate and gift tax returns and for estate and trust income tax returns usually run from $500 to $1000 per return (depending on how much work the attorney does).
