We have struggled finding a reliable and trustworthy tax service or accountant for years. I can finally say after years of searching we won’t be going to anyone other than Timothy Pytel. He was knowledgeable, efficient and he put our mind at ease. I will be recommending him to everyone I know come tax seasons.

Vlad is patient and knowledgeable about all aspects of our business needs. I was struggling with the financials of a brewery business plan and Vlad helped navigate its finish in a professional manner. The plan is now in its final stages and my team is excited to see the final product. Thank You, Vlad.

Our second year of taxes with Andrew. Professional, prompt and intelligent tax accountant. We appreciate Andrew's attention to detail and timely process of our return. He was also able to resolve a hefty audit issue we had from 2008 in a timely manner. We highly recommend his service.

I hired Cititax to prepare my husband and my year end tax returns. We had a lot of life activities this year from having moved, gotten married and purchasing a house for the first time so we wanted to hire a professional to ensure we maximized our tax return. Shybi was a real pleasure to work with and extremely responsive from initial request to the time our returns we’re filed. His price was competitive and I feel we were charged fairly. We are very busy and could be difficult to get in touch with but Shybi was patient and efficient in all of our meetings. He provided valuable insight and was able to answer all of our questions. He turned our returns around within hours once I had provided him with all of the necessary data. We would definitely hire CITITAX again and refer to anyone looking for someone to prepare their personal tax returns.

James saved me! I found my dream house and my offer was accepted but I didn't file my taxes for last year (because my last accountant disappeared and stopped returning my calls/emails). I needed it immediately for my mortgage application. I found James said he could turn it around in 4 hours. In less than 1 day, my taxes were filed. Without James' speed and professionalism, the house would have gone to someone else. Thank you so much, James. I'm so grateful!

I'm a one-man IT and needed help managing and growing my business. GA Personal Assistants has been a lifesaver. I was able to hand off the billing, accounting and legal matters to GA Personal Assistants which allowed me to focus on doing what I best. I feel like I can now take on more work without having to worry about things falling through the cracks.

Amy did an excellent job with our taxes. She is detail orientated, good with time lines, and pleasant to work with. She found several savings our previous accountant had missed. When one of her clients went over the planned on time allotment called me to push back our meeting. I appreciated her respecting my time. Amy is a very capable professional. David G in Kennesaw

Mr Aalen has been working with me on my back tax problems. He really has a lot of experience working with the IRS. He was the best person for this problem because ive worked with other tax professionals before. I feel that If he was my original accountant I would not even be in this position. I also relocated to another state and he is still working with me as if I'm still there and hasn't missed a beat and I can always get in touch with him unlike my past experience. He really knows how to take away any confusion, concerns and frustrations you may have . I have recommended him to 2 of my family members and they are very pleased!

    My photography business has grown to the point that I can't do my own books any more, so I hired Erica. She has been excellent and prompt, not only working with me on my statements and taxes, but also helping me find ways to maximize my profits and streamline the business side of things. Highly recommended---thank you so much!

    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.

    Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your area.

    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.

    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.
