The National Society of Accountants has found that the cost of preparing an itemized tax return averaged $233 across the country, but there was still variation in different parts of the country.
A biennial survey of nearly 8,000 tax preparers by the NSA found that the average fee for preparing an itemized Form 1040 with a Schedule A and a state tax return cost taxpayers only $233 this year. Rates for non-itemized returns are also low – the average cost to prepare a Form 1040 and state return without itemized deductions is only $128.
