According to the National Society of Accountants, the average cost of tax prep in 2019 was $176 using Form 1040 with no itemized deductions and $273 for itemized deductions using Form 1040 with Schedule A. Typically, tax prep fees are determined by which forms and schedules are needed or an hourly rate.

The cost for filing your taxes at H&R Block starts at $59. However, the cost of your taxes will vary depending on how many states you’ve lived or worked in, the complexity of your income, whether you have dependents, as well as how many forms and other services you need. Each additional element will increase the price. Call us today to see how the cost of tax prep with Community Tax stacks up.
