After an interview process we selected Clinton as accountant and tax advisor for our Gerull Labs LLC (g-labs) optical instrument and related software app business. His thorough manner and competence related to accounting (and tax matters especially) have been a great help. We would recommend him highly to anyone for accounting and/or tax related work and look forward to a long working relationship.

Melissa offered great customer service. She made the process really easy and it helped that we were able to do everything through email as it's hard for me to get time away from work. I will be using Rocky Mountain accounting for future returns.

I was desperate to not only find a tax preparer but a tax preparer that could help me figure out my disorganized records and that I could afford! Then the day we were to meet, I was stuck in another town and arrived to our meeting 30 minutes late. Sandra was very accommodating both with my lateness and my disorganization. Though I was embarrassed, she never made me feel wrong-footed and she was very patient in explaining everything to me. Sandra had quoted an original price based on the services I thought I needed (the basic tax form), but it turned out I needed to submit additional paperwork due to a burgeoning business. Not only did Sandra do the additional paperwork, but she only charged me the original price that she had quoted me! She also gave me some great advice on where to find health insurance and on other confusing (to me) financial- and business-related topics. I had a terrific experience with CCTS and (assuming I can afford to pay a tax preparer next year) will definitely be returning! Thank you Sandra!!! It was great to get that tax return! ~Kathleen

My company, The Wing Hut, has been working with Absolutely Advanced Accounting for a little over a year now. We are very pleased with not only their professionalism but there ability to support us when it comes to difficult decisions. At times they have had to give us facts about our books that were hard to hear but much appreciated and necessary. Working with a company that is willing to be honest with us has been very helpful getting our books into order. They have been on our side since day one and do whatever they can to save us money. I will continue to use Absolutely Advanced Accounting not only for my business but for my personal finances as well. -Caleb Roddy Owner/GM Wing Hut

Mark was great throughout the process. Being a new business we were a bit overwhelmed this year with everything that had to be done, not only did he help us get our taxes done in time, he also helped us set up our books so the process would be easier next year. I would absolutely recommend Mark to anyone looking for accounting services.

I hired Kisty as a contract consultant. She was good for my business. Kisty was able to get my past due A/P up to date, she streamlined my invoicing system and my A/R. My cash flow increased and so have my profits. Kisty also trained some of my staff on how to be more efficient with my bookkeeping system. I highly recommend her!

Legacy Tax & Resolution Services has done a great job for my business. I was in a tax recovery program after having failed to file my returns for four years. Someone suggested their services and I contacted the firm to see if they could help out. They went through my books and negotiated with the IRS on my behalf. Their consultants are very knowledgeable and professional. Not only did they manage to get the total tax obligation reduced, their firm was also able to negotiate the payment over a longer period of time. It took me one year and three months to get done with all the taxes due for the last four years. Consultants from the firm stayed in touch with me throughout the process, offering help wherever I needed it. They run a very professional and reliable service.

I had been looking for a reliable accounting service that I could trust to work in my best interest. The previous accounting firm I worked with was ok but they were hard to get a hold of, especially during the tax filing season. I first started working with Legacy Tax Service in 2016 when they audited the final accounts for my company. I was impressed by their attention to detail from our very first interaction. Their auditors were quite knowledgeable and asked me why I wasn’t making use of tax breaks that would significantly decrease my tax liability. At that time I was more worried about filing my returns on time and didn’t have a clue about these tax cuts and told them so. Not only did they manage to get my taxes filed on time, they also claimed the exemptions which saved me quite a bit of money. That is when I took them on board completely as my accounting partner and I am quite happy with their service.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
