How Much Does an Accountant Charge for a Tax Return?

The cost of hiring an accountant for a tax return can vary depending on several factors:

  • Complexity of your return
  • Accountant's level of expertise
  • Geographic location
  • Specific services required

On average, tax returns for individuals are cheaper, but the cost increases for more complex returns involving multiple income sources, investments, deductions, or business activities.

Business tax returns typically cost more because they’re more involved and have additional reporting requirements. The price can vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the business.
