I spoke to your telephone agent who while helpful, was not able to fully resolve the issue. Because your system charges professionals for prospective clients whether they want them or not, and whether that client follows through with a hire or not, you are taking choices away from the professional.

While I have earned $10,000 in fees generated through thumbtack this year, you have charged me almost $2,000. I've looked online for alternative agencies, and unfortunately you have a monopoly, and can continue these egregious practices.

Perhaps 20% finder's fee is normal. Turbo Tax told me the IRS would find it suspect.
