Our company has been working with Tauna for over 10+ years.  We started off small with just payroll and have grown to bookkeeping and help with multiples companies.  Tauna has been an irreplaceable asset and I don't know where we would be without her.  Always a wealth of knowledge and willing to help with any problem, big or small.

I have always been able to rely on Paul to thoughtfully answer my questions about personal finances, have appreciated his guidance before making investment decisions, and, of course, am grateful for his tax preparation services. Paul possesses solid accounting skills, is professional and timely in his communication, and is able to put me at ease by explaining financial details at my level of understanding. I highly recommend Paul and San Diego Tax and Bookkeeping, Inc.!

    Within the first 5 minutes of showing Shirley she noticed an inconsistency in my books and asked if it was a mistake(which it was). I have very little time on my hands these days and when someone can come in to my business and understand my system within minutes I knew I had met the right person for me. Shirley is extremely trust worthy and I would recommend her to anyone. -Shavon

      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!

      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!!

      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.

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

      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.

      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.
