There’s no shame in admitting it – many of us would rather pay someone to do our taxes than spend the 20+ hours the IRS estimates it takes to do our own. But much like State & Local Tax Rates, the accessibility, affordability and effectiveness of tax helps varies significantly from state to state, according to a new WalletHub report released today.



WalletHub compared the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia in terms of seven key metrics – ranging from the number of accountants per 1,000 jobs to their average workload and hourly compensation – in order to identify the geographical sweet spots for tax assistance across the country. You can find a brief overview of our findings below, including a breakdown of where Texas ranks in each of the metrics that we considered.
