Hello~ We happily recommend the accounting and tax services of Alexx Chesney. She has been our business and personal tax accountant for the past decade. My husband and I run a wildlife art gallery and were audited for the first time ever for both of us in over 20+ years Alexx walked us through the entire process did research on our printing and giclee methods, inventory, travel, etc. and represented us so well we received an almost 3,000.00 refund. I give my full professional and personal recommendation to her dependability, intelligent and conscientious decisions, her excellent advice and thorough checking and comparisons to previous tax years. I know with full confidence you will learn to value her expertise as deeply as we do. May you enjoy the prosperous relationship we have shared with Alexx’s excellent advice and overseeing of our taxes. Sincerely, Lisa and Gamini Ratnavira Hidden Forest Art Gallery Fallbrook, CA

Sharon is top notch!!! I started a small Pool business in January, I was looking for a bookkeeper to come to my home office to set up my QuickBooks. I went through 3 "less than stellar" Bookkeepers before finding Sharon. Sharon was very flexible working with my schedule & even offered to come on the weekend. Sharon set up my QB's and went through it step by step until I felt comfortable working through it myself. She is always just a phone call away with any questions I have. Her follow up is fantastic, if she doesn't have an answer to my question she always researches the information & gets back to me stat!! I trust Sharon too, coming from a Law Enforcement background I was very leery about giving out any personal information but Sharon made me feel confident & secure about releasing any sensitive information to her. I would recommend Sharon to anyone who is looking for help in their small business or even a large corporation. She is affordable, responsive & just plain sweet. Feel free to Email me with any questions :) Debbie - Owner Humble Bee Pools, Mesa AZ

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!

We found Accounting, Taxes and Business Consulting on Thumbtack while searching for help to prepare our taxes. As we'd just moved from WA State to CA and had sold a property in WA where there is no state tax, we had no idea how to handle the sale taxwise in CA. Upon calling Richard McLean, he returned our call promptly and set an appt. to come to our home to discuss our taxes. We found Rich to be knowledgeable and hired him. The work was completed in a timely fashion. He returned with the finished product for signatures and handled the mailing to the IRS. His fee was very reasonable based upon our income level. We would definitely hire Rich again next year.

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.
