We were 2 years behind and getting audited in 3 months. Sharon came in rebuilt the data base and started working on our books. Our first quote was from CPA 4 months and 40k Sharon (one person) did it in 8 weeks and 12k working 60 hours a week (even through Thanksgiving day). She did something that a CPA said it could not be done with one person. Sharon set up all 3 companies accounting in QuickBooks, payables, deposits, payroll, banking, receivables, and all reconciliations. She had a clean P%L and Balance sheet by the time she was finished. I would highly recommend her she is very strong using Quickbooks. Ray Allen Manager Auto title Loans USA

I have been using Kellie's tax service for several years now. I started using Kellie's services when I was a single mom living in Yucaipa, CA. In 2007 I moved to Maui, Hawaii, married, and now my husband and I both rely on her expertise in handling all our income tax concerns. Throughout the year she is available to answere all my payroll and tax deduction question as things change. I am proud to say she's not only professional, she's my friend!

    Mike has been wonderful to work with. I have had a very stressful two years of trying to deal with the IRS and FTB on my own and Mike has taken that burden off my shoulders. I highly recommend Mike for taxes, 1099's, IRS or FTB issues, etc.

      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.
