Over the years, my husband (who is also an independent contractor) and I have thrown good money after bad overpaying large accounting firms.
Those overpriced firms were supposed to have our backs but instead largely ignored us and put in a minimum effort.
At the height of my tax-related frustrations, I saw an ad for Collective (formerly Hyke).
The ad made the bold claim that they would make taxes “easy”. They also claimed they save their members an average of $16,845 on taxes annually.
To be honest, it sounded too good to be true.
Regardless, I made the phone call.
I won’t bore you with the details in this article, because I’ve already done so in my full-length Collective review. But it’s not at all an exaggeration to say it was a call that would forever change my tax-hating life.

Collective promo codes and discounts
At the time of this writing, Collective is offering their base service for $254 per month when you pay annually or $299 per month when you pay month to month. And if you use the referral code MORGAN you’ll get your first month free.
It’s really not a bad deal at all, especially if you factor in the $85 worth of subscription services (QuickBooks and Gusto) that are included with your Collective subscription.
And, if your spouse is not self-employed and you are filing jointly, Collective will file their W2 free of charge.
