: My parents accountant charged me $1300 dollars to create and fill out my forum!Depends on the accountant and how much work. An accountant can easily charge $150 an hour...and if they typically work complex situations they might charge even more.So if it took 8-9 hours to do your taxes it isn't necessarily unreasonable (although you could have gotten a better deal obviously).How many trades did you have? were you trading short term? Did you have any schedules besides D? Did you transfer any shares between brokerages, or have accounts with multiple brokerages? How good was your documentation? If he had to spend a lot of time trying to sort through a lot of documents that weren't well organized it could take a handful of hours just for that.
