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.

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.

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.

Thank you for your help in my IRS audit regarding payroll taxes for my company. You revised my corporate and individual taxes for the last 3 years and ended up with a big outlay of cash for both my personal and corporate tax returns. You saved me from a lot of penalties and interest charges, as well as bringing me through my personal audit of which I got a refund when it was completed. I have known you for 3 years and my biggest regret is not knowing you 10 years sooner. I would have saved a lot of money wasted in taxes over the years.

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.

    My music business needed immediate bookkeeping and accounting help, and I was fortunate to have been referred to Business Online Accounting by a good friend whose business was greatly helped by this company. I needed my accounts from the past year to be brought up to date, as well as my current accounts. Business Online Accounting somehow was able to accomplish this in record time, and allowed me the freedom of mind to concentrate fully on creating music for my current clients. I highly recommend the folks at Business Online Accounting to businesses that want friendly, accurate, and timely results -- all for very reasonable and competitive rates. I give them 5 stars! Ron H.

    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.
