Best tax preparer I've worked with in years. Jimmy was a last-minute replacement for my mother's regular CPA who became ill. He did the job on time, and got her back all the money she was due. Thanks, Jimmy! See you next year.

Mr. Arauz was referred to me by one of the customer reps at my bank. I was on the board of directors for the condominium's HOA and we were in great need of a tax consultant. Humberto was there for me the SAME DAY that the lady at Chase bank called him. He got in touch with me that afternoon, we made an appt. and he not only took care of us then, he has been our tax man ever since. We also use him for our personal taxes. I cannot say enough about Humberto! His professionalism and personal attention deserves a lot more than only 5 stars!! He has even come to our home to discuss tax matters with us! Who does that anymore!? I strongly recommend Humberto for the many services he has to offer. He is very knowledgeable in all areas .

Had a really great consultation with Richard. He was very attentive and did not hesitate to print documents for us to discuss and talk about together. Due to other circumstances I hired an accountant connected to a lawyer of mine. Thanks though Richard.

Vic was awesome! I was in dire need of a knowledgeable accountant that could handle my complex situation. Not only did I not end up owing any money, but I actually got a nice refund that I wasn't at all expecting! If you need a go-to guy for your personal or business income tax, look no further. You won't be disappointed - I know I sure wasn't.

I am writing this letter to recommend Sharon Burns to anyone who is looking for the best of the best in the world of accounting. Sharon has been the most professional and studious accountant that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Sharon has worked with me for the past 6 months. She came to my company while there were many issues with our accounts and quickly reviewed, corrected and advised us on how to move forward in the most appropriate way. I was so pleased with the job she performed. She has been someone I could count on to always perform impeccably and has been a tremendous asset to my company from day one. I am so pleased with her work ethic and expertise that I am compelled to let others know just how valuable I have found her to be. While working for me, she has been responsible for preparing monthly statements and financial reports for clients and investors. Her knowledge of taxes and computations, advising clients on budgets and forecasts, administering payroll and coordinating audits is way above what I have experienced with other bookkeepers and accountants. I hope to keep her around for as long as she is willing to work with us. She has always been committed to excellence and can work well under pressure and against tight deadlines. Sharon is highly detail oriented, a trait that has served her well during his time here. She is enthusiastic and energetic and has earned the admiration and respect of everyone here. One of Sharon’s talents is working thru the changing regulations and requirements of my industry and she has always identified issues and problems before they became real issues and problems. Sharon is a favorite bookkeeper/accountant among new businesses in the community as she has a talent for determining the viability of a business idea and recommending adjustments to make the idea more feasible as an actual business. She is an expert at helping new companies formulate a business plan and obtain the necessary financing as well as helping them set up their initial bookkeeping and financial reporting systems. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Sharon Burns to anyone who wants their books in order and monitored by the best. I am confident that she will be an asset to your company.

I actually feel weird about saying that working with an accountant was actually a very pleasant experience. I feel so much more knowledgeable in dealing with the IRS after our in-depth conversation and the advice Hwesu gave me. I love the feeling of having someone so well versed in taxes and business on my side and I plan on working with Cobb-Phillips & Associates for many years to come.

Accountant was not clear of his explanations or his intention. We had a difficult time with communication because of the language differences. He spoke very broken English with a heavy accent. (it was hard for me to understand him). He told me the consultation was free, that is the only reason I was willing to take the meeting. He did not tell me when the consultation changed for being a consult to actual working for me. I never asked him to review my 2017 tax returns, he said he needed to see them to get a clearer idea of what I needed. I received an unexpected bill.

Mr. Alexandrian was incredibly flexible and punctual. It can be difficult to take time off work to meet with an accountant, so he was able to accommodate us on a weekend. He prepared our return rapidly to ensure we got our money as soon as possible, and communicated thoroughly all along the way. He is incredibly easy to work with and I have the utmost confidence and trust in him. He will always put in any extra work that he can to ensure that we get the best return possible. Truly a joy.

Kamal Verma has been our tax accountant since 2005. We always recommend her company to our friends, family and associates. Her fees are reasonable and she always does her best to save us money. We own a small internet retail business and have been struggling with a very low profit margin, especially since the economic downturn in 2008. Recently, with escalating energy prices, our product costs sky-rocketed by over 25%. Kamal, as a valued consultant, diligently strives to help us through these hard times, by suggesting strategies and making certain we are monitoring our cash flow correctly. In short, Kamal has essentially become a valued "business partner" and a dear friend.

Thank you for your help in my IRS audit regarding payroll taxes for my company. You revised my corporate and individual taxes for the last 3 years and ended up with a big outlay of cash for both my personal and corporate tax returns. You saved me from a lot of penalties and interest charges, as well as bringing me through my personal audit of which I got a refund when it was completed. I have known you for 3 years and my biggest regret is not knowing you 10 years sooner. I would have saved a lot of money wasted in taxes over the years.

After dealing with a bookkeeping nightmare for my business, I switched to Every Penny and I am so happy I found them. They are seriously on top of their game. They had my entire 2017 year cleaned up and accurate within a month or so, and charged a lower rate to bring everything up-to-date. Their monthly rate is a little competitive, and entirely worth it since we have such a big company. Thank you, Julie and Summer.

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.
