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

Pat was great to work with throughout the entire process! He is very approachable with answers to any question that you may have and is very quick with follow up! He helped find some savings for us from the previous tax year as well which is always a bonus! We strongly suggest Pat if you are looking for any type of accounting help. The experience speaks for itself! Looking forward to working with him throughout 2017 and especially on our taxes next year and the years to follow! Thank you Pat!

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.

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.

      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.
