The lady I use charged $225.00 this year to prepare my wife's and mine. Included in that fee she prepares for the returns for two of my children. First, she is not a CPA but is an enrolled agent. Second, I’ve used her for years so she may be charging a slightly lower fee. And lastly, I have ever...

The answer to this question for me is very different depending on where I am in my life cycle. For example, I have 3 children. If I was 35 years old then I would need a lot more than if I was 65 years old and my kids were out of school, married and on their own.
