We love Greg, he has been very patient and helpful with us. We are new business owners and we have not been very organized; we definitely have a lot to learn. He is very professional and punctual, he is straightforward and well-informed and responds very well to several forms of communication- texts, calls, emails, Thumbtack messages. He has good knowledge of Quickbooks, is extremely flexible when it comes to meeting, and understands that as new business owners we don't have a lot of money to play with. We are very happy to have Greg as our accountant, would definitely recommend.

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!

Tom has been handling all of our tax work since 1992, from monthly sales tax filings to a full scale IRS audit. He was with me while an IRS examiner spent two and a half days at our office, answering questions and providing backup material. All ended well as Tom said it would, because our returns were done properly, and all supporting documentation was available. We have been happy with the Hodge Group for over 20 years, and use them for everything for our bookkeeping, accounting, and tax prep. Two thumbs up!!!!

Will is courteous, professional, and thorough. I had no less than 5 years of filings and confusing stock trades to get sorted out and filed. I even had him amend errors in the two years before that... Beforehand I thought I was going to have to pay the IRS more than $5k, but Will showed me that the IRS actually owed me over $6k in the end. You can imagine how I felt about that reversal. Highly recommended!

Eric did our taxes and did an amazing job! He was prompt, friendly and most of all, he was thorough. He went through my personal and business expenses, maximized our return for this year and next year, and did some bookkeeping for me. Outstanding, personal service! Outstanding value!

I made an appointment and had a change of plans, so I called to ask about rescheduling since my spouse wasn’t able to make the appointment. Patricia was very accommodating...she said to come in alone since I had the paperwork/documents... all I had to do was get the paperwork signed by my spouse once the numbers were calculated and return them back to the office...it was quick and easy! I even forgot my taxes from last year, but it wasn’t even an issue Martina tackled it like the true pro she is. First impressions are very important and they had a great first impression..They were so nice and know their jobs well!! I definitely recommend their services! I even got a cup of coffee and 2 cool pens 😄 I will be back next year!!

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.

Jean is a great accountant! I appreciate working with her because she is very responsive and spent time educating me as I am allergic to accounting details! She guided me through selecting and establishing my tax identity to help me maximize my tax savings. She also set up my books - I had QuickBooks on my desktop which I didn’t set up properly so I ran into tons of issues! She set me up online with the ability to enter expenses from my iPad and iPhone! I believe she has a sliding scale for services - from bookkeeping through tax preparation that she can walk through with yo. She can help you determine if you need to set up a payroll. My favorite part of working with Jean - she goes out of her way to get to know you, your situation and goals and even offers a consultation to discuss your needs ahead of time - either in person or by phone.

They helped me learn how to use Excel Better and even gave me access to their free excel training classes. They also helped me with QuickBooks and set up several custom reports for me to help me understand where my business was making money.

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.
