This was my first time relying on an accountant to do my taxes I was really happy with my experience. She was very prompt in her correspondence, which I was impressed with considering how close to the tax deadline.

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!!!!

I wanted to Thank Patrick for all is help with helping me take care of 8 years of back taxes... When Patrick reached out to me to see if he could help me I was extremely concerned about my next steps and if it would be affordable for me to handle the situation before the end of the Year! Not only did Patrick quote me a price $400 cheaper than the original price I was given about 6 months ago from another company the quote I got the same day from another company was. Also $1400 more than what Patrick quoted me! Patrick also was very easy to work with and he assured me in a calm voice that he would make everything as smooth as possible! He not only made it smoothed he had 8 years of back taxes finshed for me in a two day turn around! Also assuring me to call him anytime for any additional questions! I will definitely be using Patrick for all future taxes! I have already told this story several times to friends and family! Thanks again! You can't go wrong when using Patrick for your accounting purposes! He's fair, understanding, and he knows what he's doing!!! Thanks for all your help!

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.

Sean at Homestead Accounting prepared our 2016 state and federal tax returns. He did an excellent job on the returns and completed them very quickly. After they were complete, Sean walked us through the returns and answered the questions we had. Sean also identified areas that could provide tax savings in future years. It was great working with Homestead Accounting and I highly recommend them.

I hired Steve, after having taking on a new executive position, and finding out that our accounting needed a major overhaul and having had to fire our only CPA. He worked with the existing small team to improve our processes, support the accounting after having learned a new financial system and train our staff so they could become more or less self-sufficient. Within one year we received a completely clean Audit with no qualifications or recommendations.

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.

    Sharhabeel "Charlie" Shreiteh of Premiere Tax and Accounting was recommended to me by a friend of mine. I went to him to do my Taxes and get some financial advice. He provided fantastic service to me with my taxes. He got me a GREAT refund that I didn't expect and showed me some mistakes that the last tax professional I had made. I highly recommend Sharhabeel "Charlie" Shreiteh for your tax and accounting needs. He is very well informed and explains things very well. He was also very reasonably priced.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
