Income Tax Preparation FAQs
How much does an accountant cost for taxes in Chicago?
The cost of a professional accountant can vary greatly based on your situation and which tax forms need to be filed. Fees can range anywhere from $400 to $15,000 depending on your personal situation. It’s relevant to note that individual taxes, such as filing just one W2, will be on the lower end, while more extensive returns, such as business and estate taxes, will cost more.
Is a CPA better than a tax preparer?
The biggest differences between a CPA and a tax preparer are education, certifications, and experience. CPAs require a bachelor’s degree and pass AICPA’s (American Institution of Certified Public Accountants) four-part exam within an 18-month period. Tax preparers are not required to have a degree, and only some types require certifications.
