Lakshmi did an amazing job in compiling my Tax returns. I had an emergency to go out of the country and I needed my tax returns to be filed as soon as possible. Lakshmi helped me with the compilation with a turn around time of just one day. Everything was super smooth with you. She also helped me to claim back a good chunk of money withheld for Social Security which otherwise I wouldn't have claimed back. Overall, my satisfaction with Lakshmi's job is 100%. Don't think twice if you want to engage her as your tax accountant. She is very friendly to talk to, if you want to discuss any of your tax issues.

I have known Kevin since 2005. I had seen him posting over the years about being an Accountant and how much he enjoys doing taxes for his clients. I decided this was the year I'd reach out to him to do mine. I live in New York City, and if you don't know what you're doing, this state and city can REALLY hurt your pockets during tax season. Fortunately, that is not the case for me thank to Kevin! He was quick, responsive and professional. I love that he provides a secure portal for you to submit your documents (you can even take photos of your documents and submit them on your phone). This is far safer than emailing or faxing private documents. I'm happy to be a new client, and will definitely be using Kevin moving forward!

Great experience; Shaunte was very knowledgeable, very honest about my tax rates and what deductions were best for me. I would recommend Shaunte to anyone who needs help with their taxes, she went over everything in detail so I could feel safe about signing and filing my return. As an Uber driver it's important for me to have all the deductions I can get. I think I may have just met my permanent tax preparer

Working with Jim has been great! As a small business owner with no previous bookkeeping or accounting experience, I had been struggling to handle Quickbooks, payroll, 1099s, tax deadlines, etc. Jim has been wonderful about sitting down with us to really understand the specific needs of our company and to set up our bookkeeping in ways that work for us. He is a pleasure to work with - always incredibly patient and helpful and great at keeping our bookeeper, accountant and payroll communicating smoothly with each other. I wish I had found him as soon as I started this business! I highly recommend him. Karleen Boyle Sudol, Ph.D. Owner and Executive Director The Science Place, Inc.

After a very disappointing year with a previous bookkeeper who, despite assurances to the contrary always delivered months past deadlines, I found Rochelle at Yield professional, responsive and on-time. Her services, to recreate the first six months of 2017 with multiple loans, leases and back accounts were considerate and she worked tirelessly to deliver our reports on time before our July 31 deadline. I only wish I had found her earlier. Rochelle, you're terrific! Five stars and years ahead to work together. Thank you.

It is indeed a pleasure to work with Akili Accounting PLLC (Akili). I appreciate the professionalism, promptness, follow-up to ensure processes are competed within the allotted time, and most importantly for organizing my record keeping facilitating easy access of documents. This system will help greatly with future accounting processes, i.e. taxes at the end of the year. Most importantly, the guidance provided to be able to access services on the website was very useful. I am not computer literate so I greatly appreciate the patience of the Akili professional, and willingness to share useful information. I now find the website to be user friendly and very informative. I am pleased to have Akili as the professionals handling my accounting.

Folasade is amazing at what she does! As a new business, she's provided great guidance and education to my business partners and I. The same goes for my personal taxes! It's a breath of fresh air to work with someone who seeks to educate you and not treat you as a transaction. Folasade has a lifetime client!

I hired Samuel as a consultant on my tax return for my first year as a self-employed freelancer. He was willing to travel to my home and provide me with answers to all of the questions I could think of, and was even able to make quick work of my tax return, getting me a bigger return that I was expecting.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who can file my taxes?

Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

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.

How much does it cost to get taxes done?

Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

  • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
  • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
  • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
  • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
