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.

We were looking at moving up to the QuickBooks Enterprise software from QuickBooks Pro and we had several questions before we decided to upgrade. QbCure helped answer and transfer the data over to the new company file successfully. We ended up having other issues with our accounting department so we outsourced the accounting functions to QbCure and they have done an incredible job for us. Ryan S.

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.

I have pretty complicated taxes. I'm self employed, with a corporation, with Safwan's knowledge and experience, he was able to save me thousands more than my previous, while keeping me organized just in case I get audited by the IRS. I'm glad he's available year round for all my accounting needs.

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!

I found out from my bank that the IRS had levied more than $4500 from my bank account for taxes that I was due. I work at a medium sized company with no other source of income and believed that my taxes were being deducted by the employer from the salary. Turned out that they weren’t and I owed the government an additional $10,000 in taxes for the last three years. The IRS also had an order of wage garnishment on my salary which would have created real financial problems for me and my family. The Legacy Tax Resolution was recommended to me by a co-worker who had been through a similar situation before. They collected the complete record of my salary slips and negotiated an installment plan with the IRS. The payments would be made over a period of one year, which was inconvenient but manageable.

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.
