As a small business owner, my taxes werent something I wanted to tackle on my own. Richard helped me understand what i needed to keep, what i didnt need to keep and the easiest way to keep things organized. He also made sure that everything was done properly and i'd never have to worry about an audit! THANKS!

We've been having our taxes done by another person for multiple years. This year, we had Mr. Zaidi do our taxes as well as other accounting services and there is a significant difference. He is a true professional and definitely goes the extra mile. We are extremely satisfied to have switched over our accounting services to Mr. Zaidi.

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.

I have pretty complicated taxes. I'm self employed, with a corporation, with Safwan's knowledge and experience, he was able to save me thousands more than my previous, while keeping me organized just in case I get audited by the IRS. I'm glad he's available year round for all my accounting needs.

I just started my accounting needs with AAA and Kamal. So far she has met every need that I have as well as taking the time to explain the tax needs of my company. I know several CPAs can perform the job but Kamal takes the time to explain the Why! Which is so valuable to me as a new business owner.

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.

Alex arrived on time and helped me sort out my Quicken content in a way I can understand and use. I've had the program for a couple of years and didn't input the information properly. He untied the knot and was nice doing it.

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.
