We have been using the same tax person for about 10 years. It seems recently that the cost in doing our taxes has gone up significantly in the last few years. We did have to add Qualified dividends and Capital Gain Tax worksheet. I would like to know what the going rate is for doing the federal and state taxes. I would like to know based on information provided below what the industry norm is for this type of Tax preparation.

For your return, my rates would be about $280-320, depending upon the length of Sched D and other items.
From what you have told us in your question that return would probably be done in my office for between $350 and $500. So you can see that there is not an industry norm for return preparation.
