I typically prepare and e-file my own tax return. Sadly, my father passed away last year and I quickly found myself in over my head. My family went from a straightforward federal and state return to one that included the final return of my father, assets distributed as part of a trust, assets that fell under a will, assets that fell outside of both, several tax IDs etc. Using Thumbtack, I found several tax professionals and received quotes from three. Atabu stood out for a number of reasons: • Flexibility – Atabu met me at my office during business hours, saving me a great deal of travel time. • Professionalism – Atabu was always on time and came prepared to each meeting. • Diligence – Again, this year’s return was really complex for me and I simply didn’t have the knowledge readily available. Atabu brings that all to the table and waded through several options to minimize estate taxes and maximize my return. • Availability – Atabu and I communicated via email and text, he was always available. If you’re looking for an experienced professional to guide you through a turbulent return, look no further.

Very good job, Jay is very patient and polite, explaining everything in detail and answering all my questions and finding all the correct deductions. Of course, his initial quote was an estimate, and I ended up paying $300 instead of the estimated $175, but this is what I have paid in the past with other cpa's. So I was not surprised. Liked the personalized service.

Brian took over the accounting for my small HVAC business in 2010. My books were a mess. He got everything back in order and running smoothly. I am very pleased with his work and would (and have) recommended him to anyone.

Excellent and I am very happy! I called about my business tax returns- the CPA pointed out mistakes from my previous tax preparer right away. They were really smart and quick. They also showed me how to save more taxes. Their fees are very reasonable especially for a CPA firm- H&R Block charged me more. Very responsive and professional. I could not be happier. I am going to use them for my personal taxes as well.

Caroline was fabulous. I had an immediate problem that she was quickly able to assess and help with. Her CPA background, and her background in QuickBooks, were both invaluable in getting me up and running swiftly - including a course correction on my part between our two meetings. She also gave me some very useful advice for my business. Loved working with her, and will use her again as I move forward.

I was looking for a Tax Return Preparer on line and I saw the name of Linda Eicholz in a list of Accountants. I got an appointment; she revised all my files; spent time listening and then she proceeded with filing my Tax Return. I am very satisfied for her work. I found Linda to be friendly and very knowledgeable. Vito Lombardi

Could not be more pleased with my decision to use JLD Tax for my personal return as well as my small business. He handles book keeping in addition to our company tax filings which is incredibly efficient. I priced out a number of CPA's before going with JLD Tax and can say he unquestionably offers the best value around for a qualified CPA.

The staff is very caring and professional and are always quick to respond when ever I have reached out to them. Sandy is also very accessible via email.

Great job and very professional. They have an office in Norwalk, CT where you can meet and go over what you need done. The office was a little run down with difficult parking, but if you are paying for the quality of the accounting services than this will be quickly overlooked. They were always available to take my calls and very responsive to my questions. Got the work done in a timely manner.

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.
