We have been using the bookkeeping services of Annette Buckun for 20 some years now. She set up the accounting system for our business when we purchased it and helped to file our federal and state taxes each year. She has helped with business planning and investment planning. We believe that she has done an excellent job and would highly recommend her for any accounting or business improvement based position.

I could not be more satisfied with Perry's work. I had numerous years of unfiled returns that I needed to file. Perry guided me through the process and was able to get everything settled so I can move on with my life. The only regret I have is that I didn't work with Perry sooner, it would've saved me a LOTS of stress. I highly recommend Cronin & Co!

I'm very impressed with the outcome of my e-commerce project. Not only did they build me a shop that integrates to all my shopping social media platforms, they designed my logo, and did all the product photography. Currently, I'm using their team to build my amazon prime seller account and SEO rank - All in all, what I've spent has already paid for itself. Keep up the good work!

I think finding a good, reliable tax practice is quite difficult when you are trying to build your business from scratch. Legal tax firms are either too expensive, refuse to work with new businesses or simply not experienced enough to provide a great service. I started my own pizza delivery business two years ago and contacted a bunch of accounting practices to work with me. I couldn’t find a reliable partner due to one of three reasons and gave up for a few months before I came upon Legacy Tax Resolution. What is really great about this firm is that they listen to your concerns and give you respect as a client, even if your business is small. They offered a lot of useful financial information and guided me about setting up taxes. These are things I was simply unaware of and my business would have struggled a lot with the IRS without their help. I’ve used their service twice to file tax returns with the IRS for me and I would recommend them to all businesses, big or small.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
