I guess so, just surprised me. I tend to keep things as simple as I can. My search was just for the average cost of TP. I searched because your quoted number shocked me, thought maybe it was higher dependent upon region or something. My Tax Preparer in the past has always been a licensed family friend or someone I grew up with so I got a pretty fair deal on it. Thought maybe I was way out of touch with the cost of things.

I am in the process of that as well, but I wanted some outside the company advice. HR and payroll work for the company and it's best interests, not mine or yours.
