As a first time freelancer, I wasn't sure what to expect when tax season came around. Working with One Point Services was fast, educational and detail oriented. Rebecca helped me in understanding my expenses and guided me in organizing all of the right documents. She was also very helpful in answering questions for how to proceed with accounting and estimated taxes for the coming year. Everything was seamless and moved along very quickly. Will definitely be back next year and every year after!Excellent service, very streamlined and completely on-point. Everything handled electronically, and the return I got was stellar. Worth every cent.

We hired Daniel more than 2 years ago to straighten our QuickBooks program. Daniel completely remapped QuickBooks and got our financials straightened out. We have retained Daniel to assist us in all aspects of our accounting, including preparing our taxes. Since he is a QuickBooks expert, we have been able to drop the QuickBooks support plan, saving us a substantial amount of money. Whenever we have a question or a problem, Daniel always promptly gets us back on track. Whenever we are considering a new program that interfaces with QuickBooks, we always ask Daniel to review the program before we implement it. We are very happy with Daniel, and hope to have a long professional relationship with him.

Wendy Vincent helped me setup QuickBooks for Windshield Chip Repair Business, and she continues to maintain my Books in QuickBooks. I was very pleased that I was able to find someone to do this task for me, because accounting is not my strong suite. Wendy went above and beyond by also doing my tax returns annually, showing me how to improve my credit score. Wendy also assisted me with setting up a computerized version of my invoices that can be done in the field, using a cell phone app, so my invoices to customers are clean and neat which reduces errors. Wendy advised me to switch banks, for security reasons for my business account. The new bank was harder for me to use on the go, so I switched my bank back, and Wendy is working with my current bank that is easier for me to use. I really appreciate her looking out for the security of my business. She is very understanding of my needs, as well as my business needs, when it came to my bank, Wendy used the bank that I prefer and we both win. She also gave me a credit on my account for the cost I incurred to get new security checks.

I have been using tax filing and resolution services from Legacy Tax Resolution Services for almost 5 years. They handle both my individual and business tax accounts and there has never been any lapse in services. Every time I call them up, the representatives are extremely polite and friendly plus they explain and resolve each problem so elaborately until you’re absolutely satisfied. I recently took up my father-in-laws case with these guys. He had been served a 20,000 tax notice by the IRS even though he is retired. These guys entertained the case on my request and handled with extreme professionalism. The notice was overturned and my wife’s father was all praise for me and Legacy Tax Resolutions. Amazing job guys! Keep it up!

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.
