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 did my 2015 taxes and I was very impressed. Shiamal worked with me for over an hour asking me questions about taxes, possible donations, work related deductibles and anything else tax related. When I walked in I was greeted right away by the staff and was even offered water or coffee. Professional, kind, courteous and I felt extremely comfortable. Taxes were done, refund I received and the price to do my taxes was very reasonable. Thanks J&R.

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.

This is my second year filing with Larry. He clearly outlines what you need to do, he'll meet with you to talk through it or you can just email him everything. I preferred meeting in-person because I didn't understand a few requirements around my rental property. Turns out I wasn't accounting for some of my costs and he figured out why I should get back additional money. He also found a mistake in my 2014 tax return (done by somebody else) and is re-filing that return for me.

I have utilized Taxpreptoday accounting services for almost ten years and I could not have asked for a better accountant. The owner is highly knowledgeable of tax laws and any annual federal changes that may have an impact on my tax returns and effectively explains these changes so that I may clearly understand it. Everyone whom I’ve referred to Taxpreptoday, has been thoroughly appreciative of the services they provide and their responsiveness and professionalism. I would highly recommend anyone to utilize their services rather it is for personal or business, you would not be disappointed.

Sean and Lucinda from Homestead Accounting LLC were amazing. They were courteous, professional, thorough and prompt. Filing taxes always gives me a headache and anxiety every year. I am a very busy person and I don't want to be bothered filing my own taxes. Sean and Lucinda were very accommodating to my busy schedule and my taxes were filed headache-free in a timely fashion. I have used CPA, Turbotax, and H&R block before, and working with Sean was by far the best tax filing experience. The fact that I didn't have to travel anywhere was the best. They saved me a lot of money compared to Turbotax and I highly recommend Homestead Accounting LLC to anyone trying to get their taxes done.

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.

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.

    Marc gave me a very useful consult that solved many of my issues. While I do not have a need for a full time accountant at this time, I do plan to utilize Marc's expertise from time to time to address specific questions that will inevitably arise in my small business. Marc was professional, un-rushed and was able to provide thoughtful responses to my questions. Highly recommended.

    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.

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

    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.
