I am writing this letter to recommend Sharon Burns to anyone who is looking for the best of the best in the world of accounting. Sharon has been the most professional and studious accountant that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Sharon has worked with me for the past 6 months. She came to my company while there were many issues with our accounts and quickly reviewed, corrected and advised us on how to move forward in the most appropriate way. I was so pleased with the job she performed. She has been someone I could count on to always perform impeccably and has been a tremendous asset to my company from day one. I am so pleased with her work ethic and expertise that I am compelled to let others know just how valuable I have found her to be. While working for me, she has been responsible for preparing monthly statements and financial reports for clients and investors. Her knowledge of taxes and computations, advising clients on budgets and forecasts, administering payroll and coordinating audits is way above what I have experienced with other bookkeepers and accountants. I hope to keep her around for as long as she is willing to work with us. She has always been committed to excellence and can work well under pressure and against tight deadlines. Sharon is highly detail oriented, a trait that has served her well during his time here. She is enthusiastic and energetic and has earned the admiration and respect of everyone here. One of Sharon’s talents is working thru the changing regulations and requirements of my industry and she has always identified issues and problems before they became real issues and problems. Sharon is a favorite bookkeeper/accountant among new businesses in the community as she has a talent for determining the viability of a business idea and recommending adjustments to make the idea more feasible as an actual business. She is an expert at helping new companies formulate a business plan and obtain the necessary financing as well as helping them set up their initial bookkeeping and financial reporting systems. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Sharon Burns to anyone who wants their books in order and monitored by the best. I am confident that she will be an asset to your company. Best Regards, Scott Wright President National Botanicals, LLC

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
