It's free to look over a tax return with a tax professional at an office.
However, if this is something that doesn't fall under second look, meaning it's not a tax return that you already completed that you're looking over, then they can charge a fee for assisting you. I'm not saying they will charge a fee, just that they can.
In offices that I've worked in that there are some situations in which they will charge a fee before they will even look at your issue. This is especially true of IRS letter situations.
I would call the office in your area and ask them about this so that you can get a more specific answer for your situation and your office.
If you have any other questions I'll be glad to help.
