Here are links to basically the same questions previously asked:

Basic tuckpointing of the above-roof portion only (usually most weathered) assuming basic underlying joint mortar is sound, including rebuilding the crown mortar and adding a cap would normally run about $150-250 for the mortar work, plus about $80-150 for the cap, installed. Had a contractor do this on my in-laws house a couple of years ago for sale - cost $340 for about 4 vertical feet of chimney pointing, redo crown, add cap in a low labor-cost area.

If entire chimney needs repointing to the ground level, then more like a full days work for 2 mmen, so about $500-700 including the cap.
