I couldn’t be happier with Harry and am thrilled I found a CPA for life. At our first meeting, he took the time to explain everything and made recommendations on how I can set up my business to be able to save more on taxes going forward. Other CPAs will charge for this tax consultation but Harry is totally different. He sees this as his regular duty to educate his clients. During our second meeting, we went over our taxes in full detail, and even though I asked a million questions since I’m the type who wants to learn everything, I never felt rushed and Harry wasn’t annoyed at all. I talked to one CPA last year for about 15 mins (initial phone consult) last year and asked questions on how I should set up my business. after I declined his invitation to come into his office for a business consult that costs $400, he accused me of being a user. I’m sorry but that’s not a way to run a successful business. Harry is a breath of fresh air. He’s extremely knowledgeable about all the items I can deduct and even created an excel spreadsheet specific to my business. I’m a real estate agent who also owns multiple rental properties and now I know exactly how to keep my business very organized and what I can deduct to maximize my return!

I had engaged Karan Malhotra, CPA and his team at Agog Financials to help me with filing taxes for my wife's day care and my personal taxes. My experience working with the company has been nothing short of excellence. Karan was extremely prompt and professional in his communication.

He also help me set up my LLC after consultation and going through various business structures and the one that would make most sense for me. He has always been available to answer my questions.

I appreciated working with Evan and Spring Park CPA. I had moved from California to Maryland and my husband was self employed which made our taxes a bit more complicated. Evan is very knowledgeable and was able to apply for more refunds than my previous tax preparer. I was very happy with his professionalism and attention to detail. I look forward to working with him again.

Mr. Brian Wise did three things which makes him the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. 1. Mr. Wise took my 2013 Tax Return (which I had already prepared), applied IRS Rules of which I had no knowledge, and increased my return by 110%. 2. Mr. Wise resubmitted my 2009 and 2008 Tax Returns and recovered for me the Penalty and Return which was a very SIGNIFICANT RETURN. 3. Lastly, Mr. Wise EDUCATED US. His philosophy is: “THE IRS WORKS FOR US”. This “respect” but “fearless” philosophy taught me that even though we Taxpayers make mistakes, we should be allowed to make amends for those mistakes without the fear of a huge incursion upon our assets or our freedom. Mr. Wise is the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. He has had a GIGANTIC impact on our financial freedom and I look forward to a long partnership with his firm. ~ Jerry C. Featherstone

Carol provided excellent accounting services for my small business and personal tax returns. As a small company, it is nice for me to work directly my CPA. My return was fairly complicated, and I think she is very knowledgable and she responded quickly to my questions. Her pricing seems fair, and I hope to work with her for years to come.

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.
