We contacted Keith because we had several years of past due business and personal tax returns to file. Keith helped us gather our records, took care of all of the bookkeeping and filed the tax returns. After it was all said and done we owed very little and Keith was able to have the penalties waived. I am so happy to have this mess behind me and even more happy to have found our Accountant!

I am an ongoing client of AnneShade associates. Anne and her team were referred to me by the Small Business Administration. I was a a new small business owner and was having difficulty grasping what was needed to manage my small business financially. Anna and her team were patient with me and coached me every step of the way. They provide one stop shopping for me as they do my business bookkeeping, set up my LLC, and also do my personal and business taxes. I cannot say enough good things about Anna and her team of professionals. They are 100% dedicated to the success of their clients.

We hired Karen to go through a year of bookkeeping we were behind on and to keep us caught up. She is organized, professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I never have to manage her or keep her on task. She's self-motivated, smart, and a pleasure to work with.

    I have been using AEM Financial Services for my tax needs for three years now. Ashleigh (the owner) has always been professional and courteous during all of our interactions. Her response time has been impeccable, she typically responds to my phone calls or emails within 24 hours. She has also gotten our returns done in less than a week. Ashleigh always makes sure to follow up several weeks after the return has been filed to make sure we have received our return and all of our questions and concerns have been answered. My husband and I will be continuing using AEM Financial Services in the future. I would recommend AEM Financial Services to anyone who needs tax preparation or bookkeeping services.

    About

    For the past 8 years I have worked in public accounting and health insurance finance in a variety of positions including auditing, controllership and pricing. All of these positions have contributed to my professional growth by strengthening and developing my skills and competencies. In August 2016, I decided to branch out and start my own bookkeeping business. I personally believe that a great bookkeeper must have a positive outlook, be hard-working, detail-oriented, organized and able to multi-task. Most importantly, they need to be personable and caring, taking an interest in your business as well as you as a person! I am all these things and more. I have all the technical accounting knowledge needed to complete the job, but I also bring a set of soft skills to the role. I also have skills that span beyond technical accounting and bookkeeping and venture into finance. Need help with budget vs. actuals analysis? I can help with that! How about creating financial statements or a forecast? I can help with that too! Need help translating the financial mumbo-jumbo into layman terms that you can actually use to execute your business strategy? I'm the girl for the job! My business acumen paired with my financial skills will make me an asset to your company.

    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.
