I contacted MVP Plumbing via website "Thumb Tack" on behalf of an elderly disabled recipient who had a kitchen sink leak issue. Mike Vargas responded immediately. I explained the recipient was looking for a volunteer as she has no means to pay for professional services. Mike Vargas did not hesitate and said there will be no charge in this particular situation and will come by to see what he can do. Kudos to Mike Vargas, owner of MVP Custom Plumbing Co., to be willing to come out and volunteer his services to somebody he doesn't even know. Mr. Vargas was very courteous, professional and empathetic. He is an excellent example of what this world needs more of. Mr. Vargas is an asset to the community. Let's continue to support small businesses. On behalf of myself and Recipient Virginia Thank you very much for your time and effort. You are a great example of a noble man and your family should be proud of you for your deed and contribution to the community.

I went in to see Naseer for a free consultation, as I'm fairly new as a freelance writer and didn't know anything about what had to be done with my taxes. He immediately found out that my previous accountant had done my taxes wrong, and I didn't have my Schedule C -- and I was wondering why I didn't have it when I was filing for insurance. Not only did he find the error, but he walked me through the ways that I could save money, taught me how to keep track of my expenses for my business, and overall would be helping me to save a bunch of money. I was extremely nervous about this year's taxes since last year hit me rather hard, but I'll be coming back to see Naseer when it comes time to file my taxes. He's a great guy, wonderful to talk to, and he'll make sure everything gets done properly.

Cindy has always been a true pleasure to work with. Back when I was starting my business, she helped me with all of the accounting set-up issues in a way that made sense to me. Since, she has always been there for me when I have questions on my books, journal entries, or accounting. I could not do what I do, without the help from Cindy! She is always able to answer my questions in a timely manner, and not wasting any valuable time, while keeping my books, accounts, and audit trails accurate! She is a true Rock star!

Last summer, I looked for a firm to address our small business tax issue. I tried a Chamber search tool and I tried Thumbtack. Although Cano Accounting was the result of my Thumbtack research, I made the huge mistake of selecting the firm on the Chamber list that online, only appeared to have the experienced staff to address the issues. Although they were quick to take my retainer check, they started to work only after months of inactivity. They worked for 1 month and then decided they were too busy to continue my compliance project or keep to our written Agreement. Their bookkeeper appeared competent, but was not available to take on my project when I was available for reviewing records. Frustrated, I released the first firm and contacted Mr. Cano in the hopes they were more professional. Days later, Mr. Cano and his staff competently reviewed my tax compliance status, and we agreed on a scope of work, schedule and labor rate that was very reasonable. Within 2 weeks, Mr. Cano and staff had gone through years of bank records, and brought my firm closer to full tax compliance. My firm has engaged Cano Accounting for their professionalism, and for the long-term to ensure the successful growth of my environmental management firm.

Erica was VP of Finance when I was in charge of Operations. Not only did Erica do a meticulous job of all the accounting, she took the time to learn our side of the business and recommend ideas for saving money and increasing profits - THEN she went out of the way to teach us how our transactions and timing affected the bottom line so that we were able to improve our performance. The knowledge of the P&L and Balance sheet that I gained from Erica allowed me to be more successful in my career and confident in building my own multimillion dollar business.

OMG! Michael met all my expectations. We met to review and streamline my bookkeeping processes in Quicken for my doTERRA essential oil business. He helped me pinpoint my incorrect postings with regard to a personal loan. Initially, I was afraid my small business questions were out of his league of large business accounting background. But, Michael kindly overviewed accounting procedures with me that had left my memory of learning years ago. All his knowledge he shared with me will help me move forward to generate proper financial statements throughout the year and ease of tax return preparation next year. The only thing I could have asked for was more time with Michael. However, he confirmed he will be available to consult as questions arise in the future. Thank you sooo much, Michael!

Michelle was very professional and timely. She found some tax credits we didn't realize we qualified for that were beneficial to our business. We are very happy with her continued support and investment in our business.

We first got in touch with this firm when our business was facing an external audit by the IRS. The tax authorities believed that our firm had been under reporting the income based on the inventory turnover. Legacy Tax Resolution helped us out by going through the accounts and negotiating with the tax authorities on our behalf. We have been using the firm since then, for over five years now. We have a strong partnership with them and they have always provided us with great solutions in terms of taxation and assisted when financing was needed. We have never had any problems with IRS in the last five years and all our returns get filed timely. The tax returns get filed months in advance of the tax filing deadline. We would recommend their tax consultancy.

    Newman Associates has done our tax work for years now. They are prompt, responsive, and effective. Our taxes might not require the attention of, say, the Romneys, but they're our taxes and not having to worry about them is important. To paraphrase the Mastercard commercials "Peace of mind: priceless!"

    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.

    Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your area.

    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.
