I'm a Cali bird myself. After my previous accountant of years gave me the news of her ritirement, Aaron Ray and his staff greeted me with a warm smile. I quickly understood that I was in the hands of kind, caring professionals who were eager yet patient to answere all of my questions and clarify every last concern I had, and Maddy, my Alaskan husky found it difficult to leave the arms of the nicest receptionist! To me choosing an accountant is like choosing a family doctor or dentist. You know when it fits. Aaron has over a decade and a half of experience, and this was clear to me. I highly reccomended his expertise for those keeping track of investment property, in San fran anyway.

It is still a little early to render any review. Their accountant had a problem opening my computer program, and therefore, I had to print all my paperwork and take it back down there. I have had no news or comments since. However, Sean is a fine fellow. I was very impressed.

Working with David was amazing! He helped me organize my finances and build a budget. With his help (and a little self-discipline), I went from deepening my debt by $200-300 a month to repaying the same amount and even saving a little. Thank you so much for turning my life around!

Once upon a time, I did my own taxes. Then I started my own LLC to handle part of my medical practice and outside business ventures and quickly realized there were too many pitfalls for risking an audit or overpaying Uncle Sam. Luckily I was referred to Responsive Tax and Accounting five years ago and have been pleasantly surprised with my tax returns ever since.

Katie is awesome. And here's why ... I needed a "thought" partner for my start-up. She is a numbers person and a fantastic listener. She fires back with great ideas. She pulls from her experience, brilliantly. She is honest about her strengths as well as her limitations. She is a team player. She doesn't waste a second. Most importantly, when the meeting comes to a close and she grabs her gear to head out, I cannot help but think I am more informed, feel on track, and have the peace of mind knowing that every number associated to my business is in Katie's capable hands. Thank you Katie, looking forward to the future and beyond!

I was extremely reluctant to find accounting services online, but Tyrreia exceeded all expectations. I required bookkeeping services for my company, data entry, payroll, reconciliations, accounts receivable and payable, and her services were great! She was able to answer all my questions, provided open communication, and was affordable.

I needed someone to help with my quickbooks. At the time, I used google to find bookkeeping services, I went down the list and called bookkeeper after bookkeeper to compare pricing. Dragonfire Accounting had the best price. Chris answered the phone when I called, took his time with me, and as someone who didn't really know what questions to ask him, he had all the right questions to ask me. So to recap: Chris had the best price, was very responsive, very professional, and can do the work that used to take me ten hours in 3.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Who can file my taxes?

    Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

    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.

    How much does it cost to get taxes done?

    Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

    • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
    • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
    • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
    • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

    Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
