We tell people who call us out of the blue that we have a $300 minimum fee, which is approximately true. That number scares off the blind callers. Now we will do a client's kid's return, or mother-in-law's return, for less than that, maybe. But otherwise just about all our clients pay more than $300. Billing rates in our office range from $100-$220 per hour. The return as described might get done for the $300, depending how straight-forward the information was presented to us. But that's about rock-bottom, in a perfect world. If we had to meet in person and go over things, that doesn't leave a lot of room for any complexity.But that's not the kind of return we would go out of our way to get more of, either. We use our time better doing more, and better, work for our business clients.I, too, wonder about the amount of employee business expenses for a $50K W-2 employee.Bill
