Mike is a very professional, likable person. He represents his business with professionalism, honesty and integrity. His prices were very reasonable. We had two pipe clogs in different parts of our home. He worked hard at unclogging them and left the work areas clean. I will definitely use Mike again and recommend him to all.

This is a comment on the service I received from Shanaswa Inc. The best way to comment is to say they are miracle workers! I had some issues with previous year taxes for both business and personal because of some mistakes I had made. The service I received was excellent; all the steps were explained to me and the costs were very reasonable. What also was very helpful was that they came to me and did not require me to go to their office. I will certainly go to this company for any future tax issues I have. HIGHLY recommend this organization. Thank you, Nirali!

Jose does not provide simple accounting services, he becomes your CFO. Absolutely amazing on how much he knows, and how familiar he is with all ins and outs of banking world. If you need simple accounting services, yea he can take care of you. Just like 100 other CPAs. But if you are serious about growing your business, creating banking relationships and opening doors that were previously bolted shut for you, he is your man. His goal is not get you the biggest refund and send you on your way until the next tax season. Instead he will plan with you your 1 year and your 3 year plan, and from a financial side, actually make that happen. And hey, if you are really interested about that tax refund, or (not) paying taxes in general, you want to give him a call. And I'll tell you why: You know how companies like Apple make 100 billion a year but pay 300 dollars in taxes? They have guys like Jose working for them. Enough said. If you want to pay taxes like Apple, dial his number.

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.
