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.

Sharon is among the best. I needed help figuring my books for last year. She is very knowledgeable and more importantly very kind and warm. She made herself available right away. She answered all my questions and took time to explain things in detail.Who does that nowadays, unless you are paying for the time. She is excellent with Quick books and very thorough in accounting. She teaches people who want to do their own book keeping (totally secure within herself). I am so glad I had opportunity to learn from her. You Go Sharon!!!!

Ms. Riccardi is the best! I came to her because I own a small business and have been keeping the books myself since opening about 6 months ago. I wanted to make sure I was on top of everything. I was not. Ms. Riccardi helped me get my books cleaned up and did a superb job with my financial reporting needs and had excellent tax advice for me for 2015. I tend to have high standards when I am paying someone for something I think I can do myself, but Ms. Riccardi met each of my expectations. She is professional, accessible, and knows her field well. I thought I could save money by taking care of my companies accounting and tax needs myself, but after working with Ms. Riccardi, I will be using her services instead.

Bryant has been a godsend, literally. He is currently helping us with all our accounting needs and we hope to have a long lasting relationship with him. We are a startup company and made many, MANY beginner errors! So far Bryant has been patient, supportive and knowledgeable with all our needs. He is wonderfully communicative and resourceful, and I am impressed with his ability to jump in and tackle the mountain of accounting work and myriad problems we presented to him. My only regret is not hiring him months ago. I believe with Bryant's guidance we can get back on track and achieve greater success. If you are looking for help, it's definitely worth your time to talk to him!

Merry Campbell is the financial professional you need on your team, to grow your business, streamline your accounting practices, and increase your bottom line. I have consulted with Merry on many successful business ventures and have enjoyed the experience of working and learning from her. She is a dedicated professional with years of professional experience in business, management, corporate bookkeeping, and tax preparation. She has also helped countless small business and individuals get their financial plans rolling and in place and she can help you too. The reasons you need Merry Campbell involved with your business or individual finances on a professional level are countless, but the most compelling reason to have her on your team is her unwavering personal standards of integrity, honesty and loyalty.

Professional, thorough, & proactive. Tauna goes above and beyond in every aspect. I was so thrilled with her accounting/bookkeeping services I recommended her to my dad for his business. About a week in I get a text out of the blue... "Tauna rocks!" From two very discerning people, she's won our business to be sure, I could not praise her enough.

      Was recommended Josh for my taxes through a friend and used him for my 2014 filing and he was great! He actually found deductions that I was able to take advantage of and get back more for my taxes than if i would have tried to do it myself online. I own two houses, student loans and a small business. He was competitively priced and had a super quick turnaround. Will recommend him to my other friends! Thank you!

      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.
