My experience with Darsha is over the top! She is so good at what she does! Darsha has saved me a ton of money. She is so meticulous at what she does that I have now hired her to do our business as well as personal accounting and taxes. She keeps you straight! She knows her stuff and is so affordable compared to my past CPA! Definitely worth every dime for the peace of mind and the money saved!!

About

I offer bookkeeping, in-house financial reporting assistance, income statements and balance sheets compilation, income tax strategic planning, representation for income tax examinations, and payroll services. Bookkeeping The cost or other issues that come with having an in-house bookkeeper or accountant can be overwhelming for many small businesses. I provide general ledger bookkeeping services, including data entry, account reconciliation, and income statement and balance sheet compilation using information provided by you. I use QuickBooks for this process due to the ease and low cost of transferring all current and historical data to the business at any point. In-house Financial Reporting Assistance Many businesses have an employee with the expertise and desire to provide many accounting functions. The assistance they need is limited mostly to unusual transactions and finalizing the periodic accounting reports. I will come to your location at least quarterly to help insure that the information is complete, accurate, and useful. Income Statements and Balance Sheets Compilation Compiling income statements and balance sheets is always included in our bookkeeping services; it is generally included as a part of our in-house financial reporting assistance. In addition, we can provide CPA compiled statements for your bank, absentee owners, insurance underwriters, and others. Payroll Services Even the most meticulous and experienced human resources professionals find that handling payroll can be a headache. For many small businesses, I offer payroll services as an attractive and valuable alternative to in-house processing. I can provide a less expensive, simpler means of paying employees, filing taxes, and performing other essential but mundane tasks. Income Tax Strategic Planning My goal is for my clients to pay the least amount of income tax allowable by the law. I take the time to understand your personal and professional situation to help you get positioned to pay the least tax possible, while ensuring you do not mistakenly break any tax laws. Representation at Income Tax Examinations No matter how diligent you are at reporting your financial activities and making payment to government entities, you may get audited. By choosing Jason W. Taylor, CPA you will have peace of mind knowing that I can help you assemble needed information, discuss best practices to utilize, and support you throughout the examination process.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is an accountant?

Accountants are financial professionals who have received an accounting degree from a four-year university or college. By trade, accountants prepare, maintain and examine the financial statements of an individual, business or institution. An accountant prepares reports for tax purposes and can also perform audits of public companies. Common tasks include creating budgets, analyzing profits and losses of a company, processing payroll, preparing financial statements for company leadership, and creating and maintaining financial database systems for a company.    

Accountants do not automatically have a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation unless they have passed the Uniform CPA Examination and received the proper license. Regardless of whether they are CPA certified or not, accountants can assist businesses and individuals with bookkeeping and financial reporting, while CPAs are more knowledgeable in tax codes as a result of the CPA licensing examination and continuing education requirements. CPAs are also eligible to represent clients before the IRS if audit support is required, while a non-CPA accountant is not. Academic background, years in the field and professional reputation all can affect an accountant’s rates.

How much does it cost to hire an accountant?

Accountants’ rates vary based on their education, licenses, experience, and the work for which they are being hired. An accountant may charge an hourly rate when a company or individual needs their services on a short-term basis, such as when performing an audit or requesting assistance setting up a financial database or process. Hourly rates can range as widely as $40 per hour to $300 or more per hour, depending on your geographic location and the accountant. Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your region.

Accountants may offer a package rate for weekly, monthly or annual services to reward ongoing customers. Many accountants offer online services where small businesses can access online accounting software and payroll assistance, and the accountant — for a monthly or other recurring fee — provides financial analysis and reporting of their numbers. For basic monthly accounting services, an accountant might charge anywhere from $75 to $500 or more, depending on what was included in a given package, the size of the client’s business, and the complexity of work requested. Nationally, full-time staff accountants earn between $40,000 and $80,000, depending on experience and other factors.
