John was very responsive and available to address my questions and concerns regarding current and future tax return filings. He made several recommendations and was completely transparent and unselfish in finding the most cost-effective option, which in my case, was to go back to my current preparer and ask him to explore the changes. He is conscientious and I highly recommend him for your tax and accounting needs.

Bryant has been a godsend, literally. He is currently helping us with all our accounting needs and we hope to have a long lasting relationship with him. We are a startup company and made many, MANY beginner errors! So far Bryant has been patient, supportive and knowledgeable with all our needs. He is wonderfully communicative and resourceful, and I am impressed with his ability to jump in and tackle the mountain of accounting work and myriad problems we presented to him. My only regret is not hiring him months ago. I believe with Bryant's guidance we can get back on track and achieve greater success. If you are looking for help, it's definitely worth your time to talk to him!

Professional, thorough, & proactive. Tauna goes above and beyond in every aspect. I was so thrilled with her accounting/bookkeeping services I recommended her to my dad for his business. About a week in I get a text out of the blue... "Tauna rocks!" From two very discerning people, she's won our business to be sure, I could not praise her enough.

Korky is amazing. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. His prices are ridiculously low for the service he provides. His first hand experience in business as well as his great demeanor and accounting knowledge is an amazing asset to all business owners. I highly recommend his services. I am a small business with not a lot of knowledge on the accounting side of it. He provided me with a great system for balancing sales and inventory with daily ledgers and balance sheets. He gave me the information that put me in charge of exactly how my business is doing and what I can do to grow it and save money. Not to mention year end taxes! Thank You Korky!!

    Was recommended Josh for my taxes through a friend and used him for my 2014 filing and he was great! He actually found deductions that I was able to take advantage of and get back more for my taxes than if i would have tried to do it myself online. I own two houses, student loans and a small business. He was competitively priced and had a super quick turnaround. Will recommend him to my other friends! Thank you!

    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.
