I have many years of customer service experience. I have always provided exceptional customer service to my customers and I always look for this when I am in need of a service. I can't say enough about the service I received from A. Leake Accounting Inc. This was the first time filing our companies taxes. What a wealth of knowledge we gained from our visit. Everything was explained with great details. You could tell that there was a genuine interest in our company and making sure we understood all of the fine details. The time spent with us was amazing, there was never a feeling of rushed. With the first call made you received details and even after we were finished with our taxes, I needed guidance and I received personal guidance to getting a job done. I haven't had service like this in a long time, a genuine business relationship was established. We received immediate answers to our phone calls and contact via email. The service you will receive with A. Leake Accounting Inc. will be exceptional and most companies would have charged our company an enormous amount of money for the services we received. You will receive quality and very competitive pricing from this company. We highly recommend this company to anyone seeking accounting services. There are other services they provide as well. You won't be sorry you chose this company. We are thrilled and hope to have many more years of service provided to us by A. Leake Accounting. Thank you A. Leake Accounting, you certainly impressed us!

We actually had Annette Hoffstatter as our tax preparer. She was able to get us in quickly (since the deadline was closely approaching) and complete our taxes in just a few days. She sat with us to learn of our financial situation and ensure us the largest reimbursement we qualified for.

As CFO of my Vacation Rental business, Marcia showed extreme acumen to the changing needs of the rental market. She has a keen ability to analyze trends, allowing me to adapt with the ebb and flow of the rental business. Marcia is professional, energetic and quite capable of multi tasking, getting things done in a timely manner. It is my opinion that Marcia Sweet will be an asset to any business she should choose to follow.

I used Oaks Accounting for both my business and personal returns. Not only did I save on my tax bill, but I also learned how to better structure my business and manage my finances! The service was timely, efficient and much more insightful than I'd bargained for. Most importantly, it was accurate and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of for what I didn't know. I highly recommend!

Ms. Richards has prepared my federal taxes for the past 2 years. She's extremely thorough & goes above and beyond by asking me more questions than any other accountant ever has, to try to find all avenues of deductions to get me the best return possible. I will definitely use her next year as well for my federal tax preparations. -H Talarchyk

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.

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.
