It's now more affordable to hire a professional to help you prepare your tax return. According to ServiceSeeking.com.au's recent data on tax return pricing, the average cost of personal tax returns and advice in NSW dropped by 18% over the past year. From $80/hr in FY14, hiring professional tax return accountants now costs $66/hr on average.
Meanwhile, the budget rate for tax return services was reduced by 33% and is now at around $30/hr. In contrast, the premium rate rose even higher; the cost of a premium tax return service jumped to $150/hr from just $120/hr last year.
Most of the accountants in Australia lowered their rates this year. Of six states and one territory, WA is the only state to experience an increase in the average cost of personal tax return services. Because of this, WA tax accountants now offer the most expensive services across the country. On the other hand, the tax return experts from Tas offer the lowest fees.
