Personal Tax Specialists
‘How much does an accountant cost?’ We know how annoying it can be when dealing with accountants who can’t (or won’t) tell you how much they are going to charge for preparing your tax return. Lodging your tax return is one of those grudges in life and the last thing you want is an exorbitant tax return cost to go with it, or any nasty billing surprises. At Personal Tax Specialists we’re upfront about our fees so you know exactly what you’re in for.
At Personal Tax Specialists, our tax return price is $220. That’s a fixed price that covers everything from the preparation to the lodgement of all standard individual income tax returns. Business income tax returns start at $330 because of the extra time and worksheets involved. There are no hidden costs or last minute charges to complete the return.
Note that if you have investment properties, capital gains or losses, share or managed fund investments, or extensive work-related deductions, an additional fee will be charged for the extra work involved in preparing your tax return. This extra fee is generally in the range of $55 to $110 per extra worksheet, depending on its complexity. However, so that there are no tax return cost surprises, we are always prepared to provide you with a personalised fixed price quote before we get started. This means you will have a clear breakdown and agreement on the price before the process even begins.
As if providing you with upfront fees wasn’t enough, to make it easier for you, we offer three convenient payment options that you can use to settle your account with us. You can either pay the cost of your tax return to us by direct deposit into our bank account, You can provide us with your Visa or MasterCard details, or we can even deduct our fees directly from your tax refund (there is an additional $27.50 fee if you choose this “fee from refund” option).
