I own a small retail business here in South Florida that I thought I could handle myself. When it came to the financial records, I was just lost. So I spent the first year just keeping make-shift records and hoping that was enough. Well, in year two it came time to present my records to a bank, and that's when I knew I needed help. I was referred to Marsha by a friend and from day 1 she's helped my business. Key Strokes now handles my daily bookkeeping, monthly sales tax, payroll, and year end taxes. I'd highly recommend Key Strokes.

I strongly recommend M&B tax consultants. They are helping me with my small business taxes, payroll, and bookkeeping. They were very efficient, honest, and knowledgeable most of all which was very important for me. I was looking for a company with experience, and I was happy to finally find one.

I was notified by the IRS that I had to take care of some previous years filings ASAP. I found Mr Davis via web search for CPA/Tax experts. I had already called around and gotten several prices and spoke with many different CPA's, Mr Davis's prices and services offered were some of the best around. After a phone call with him, I was immediately impressed by his down to earth nature and his understanding that I had to move quickly. He didn't try and up-sell me all the additional services I didn't need like many others did. I met with him that day and he started immediately. I liked the fact that on top of him telling me what he would do and how he could help me, he explained to me the steps needed to rectify the situation in layman's terms rather then hitting me with all the IRS/Legal jargon. A few days later I received a call that everything was finished. I still have quite a few steps to go through to rectify the situation, but I will be using Mr Davis for that and all future filings. Mr Davis seems to take pride in helping people out, and definitely goes above and beyond.

When our last bookkeeper left us, we interviewed extensively. Of all the bookkeepers we interviewed, Travis was head and shoulders above them all. His bookkeeping knowledge aside, he was very business savvy, he knew how we can increase profits, and he has a genuine interest in what we do and how the business operates. It’s hard to find someone who has such professional expertise, that you can trust implicitly and whom you know genuinely has your best business interests at heart. We are incredibly lucky to have found Travis, and cannot speak highly enough of him and his bookkeeping services.

    Let's just say, I had tried to look for a CPA in three different occasions on this website. I spoke to about more than 10 professionals and none of them made me feel like Olga made me feel. Yes, she is a bit more expensive than the others but it is because she has the experience on her side. As a small business owner, you know that experience has no price. You want someone to handle your accounting services that knows what they are doing, that has ample experience in various areas, that is reliable and truth worthy. She was very patient with me answering all my questions, I highly recommend her. She is completely worth it! I will not only be using her now, but for the lifetime of my company. Thanks Olga, I will be forever thankful for all your expertise and your help.

    Mike has been a blessing for me, I'm all about making things easier for me seeing how I run my business by myself. He is my quickbooks coach and my CPA. I can't tell you how much easier things are for me. Any problems I have with my books he's there. I no longer drive anywhere to do my taxes. It's all done right from home. I love it. My wife thinks he charges to much but I don't care, it's worth it to me. Never compared prices or if I'm getting the most with my tax return but I like and trust him.

    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.

    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 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.
