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.

He is extremely professional. I wish I could say the same for my first visit, I was late. But he has been on time, punctual and informed me every step of the way. In fact, he is a math guru clearly by his credentials. However, he puts you at ease, asked me on two occasions to call him Edward. His office is in Glendale, has assigned spaces for his clients. He is low key and manages to minimize or reduce your stress. This is of particular importance to me. I had several surgeries last year, a great deal of medical expenses and was being forced by a long term carrier to apply for Social Security, dealing with loss of insurance coverage and Medicare and an employer's records of my Flexible Savings Arrangement. I found him on Thumbtack and was searching for an alternative to H&R (Hated & Rejected) finally for the excessive amounts they charge. My price was as quoted and in my belief Edward Yousefian, CPA,APC. is well worth the money. I believe he has a heart shows compassion and sees his involvement as a new and growing relationship. I give him 6 thumbs up thumbtack.

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.

As a small business owner, I want to focus my time and energy on growing my business and generating more revenue. GoFigure has been a fantastic partner that has grown with us. Instead of focusing on tasks like bookkeeping, paying invoices and reconciling our accounts, Jamie and his team have taken these functions over for me, which has freed up valuable hours for me to focus on growing my business. I’d highly recommend GoFigure to any entrepreneur who needs more hours in the day!

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.

About

I have completed a contract assignment at Alcon Labs using multiple software in interpreting month-end data used to produce a management service package plus a regional month-end reporting package. My background consists primarily of real estate accounting, but I am quite diversified and can step into any industry regardless of the situation. I have worked in a manufacturing environment, which included both raw and finished inventories. This also includes recording and reconciling credit card transactions on a daily basis. Since some clients were international companies, this meant staying on top of A/R collections.

About

Bookkeeping / write-up -- I provide bookkeeping services. I obtain the necessary information from your company, often via electronic transmission, and post it to my accounting system for you. We then present the results in the form of financial statements and the accompanying supporting schedules. I will also work with you to interpret the results and identify trends that either need fixing or require expansion to take advantage of an opportunity. In addition, I compile a complete set of financial statements using information provided by your company. This service allows you and often other interested third parties such as investors or your bankers to track the company's progress. Tax preparation -- I prepare the returns for individuals, corporations, partnerships, LLCs, trusts, and estates. Often, clients ask us to prepare the tax returns for all their entities and personal as well.

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.
