Selected this firm as my preferred agent, had a call discussing all our requirements. Was told I would receive an engagement letter shortly and then nothing. Zero response from accountant or receptionist. Deathly silence and a week wasted before moving on to another provider. Don't waste your time with this firm

J&R Accounting is one of the best Tax preparation services in the area. I hired them to prepare my 2014 Tax return, they went above and beyond my request and provided additional support with no additional charges. The quote was fair. I have to point out that Shaimal is really a customer centric person. I will absolutely come back next year and re-hire J&R to prepare my 2015 Tax return.... Way to go J&R , keep up the good work!

James did an amazing job helping me with my 2017 Tax Return. I had a very complicated year when it came to reporting income and James handled it like a true professional. He made sure my reporting was accurate while identifying all possible deductions. I would highly recommend James for your Small Business or Personal needs.

We met Steve at a DuPage County networking event and was impressed by his professionalism. Steve has been guiding us for the past three years as our accountant and bookkeeper. His knowledge and attention to detail has helped make my company aware of any tax savings and programs that benefit us. He is proactive by emailing his clients how changes in the tax plans will affect our business. We consult with Steve before we make any major changes in our business. If he doesn’t know the answer he will research and find out what we need to know. I feel confident in recommending Steve’s accounting services. He is not only thorough, but also easy to work with and always willing to take the time to discuss any concerns my business partner and I have. He is quick to respond to our questions and provide us with answers we understand.

Margaret has been my personal accountant for over a decade and a half. She was referred to me by a friend during a time of tax trouble that I had unwittingly gotten myself into and I will go nowhere else. I have a unique situation where in one of my professions I am an independent contractor with several business expenses. On the other hand my side hustle consists of an hourly pay rate plus tips. Margaret makes it all so easy. I could not do this without her. Every year she makes a stressful time easier and streamlined. It is almost as if she is a therapist in a time of need. Margaret will always be my accountant and I recommend her highly to anyone, no matter what their situation. Margaret can handle anything with professionalism plus she adds the human component to each individual. Every tax season I laugh at all of the commercials advertising big accounting firms and am so relieved I have Margaret.

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.
