Absolutely amazing moving company! I was worried no one would take such a small job on short notice. However Adrian of Checkmate Professional Services came to our rescue. Adrian arrived 5 minutes early with all of his equipment. He was very professional and asked questions to make sure he was doing everything to our specifications. He helped us move and setup a 350lb outdoor fountain. My wife and I are very grateful for his company. We highly recommend them.

I recently hired Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA to assist me with a variety of projects related to financial projections for my business start-up as well as completion and filing of my taxes. Mr. Pierre’s quality of work and customer service and satisfaction is ranked well above average. He is very knowledgeable and professional and he made sure that at each step and through each project, he understood my whole financial picture and was able to provide a detailed explanation of each process and the reasoning to support the explanations. He is very passionate about what he does and it is reflected in the projects that he produces. Mr. Pierre removed the high anxiety level that existed due to my anticipation of my personal tax outcome and how my financial projections for presentation of my business to lenders. He is very patient and flexible and takes his time to understand his customer needs. I would recommend Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA to anyone and everyone seeking the assistance of an extraordinary professional who handles financial situations with great ease on a personal or business level. Mr. Pierre transformed my vision and a complex tax situation into something that I can manage. I give Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA *****5 stars for his work ethic and his whole approach to his customers and meeting their needs. Dr. RD

Marguerite or Maggie, is hands down the best accountant I've worked with. She's been working with numbers (taxes and accounting) longer than anyone I know, and she's still going strong. What makes Maggie so valuable is that she will run through tax and accounting number scenarios several times to find the most advantageous result that she may provide to you, for your individual needs, while maintaining standards of the profession. Inotherwords, she doesn't just fill out your tax forms and then stop there: Instead, she will review your numbers and utilize legal means to present you with the least amount of tax burden owed that is allowed. My experiences with Maggie are mainly focused in the area of tax returns as this is the main service she delivers to me. Additionally, Maggie invests time preparing for her clients: During each holiday season, when most of us are celebrating, Maggie will usually read the whole updated tax code (over 1000 pages), often as many as three times to familiarize herself with the latest tax law changes, and also to establish strategies to best support her clients with the coming tax year. From what I've seen, Maggie also appears to be very thorough. If she sees missing information in your documents or numbers that could possibly be of benefit to you, she will often contact you for additional information, particularly if she sees a tax benefit that is being underutilized. I've heard that Maggie is also an excellent forensic accountant, and that she is often hired to fix and repair errors made by lesser experienced accountants. Maggie has an expanded range of skills she can utilize to provide the best service for your needs. I'm not an accountant, so I am unfamiliar with many of the technical aspects of Maggie's expertise, but I've been bringing tax work to Maggie for nearly a decade now, and Maggie consistently delivers for me year after year. As you know, there are no guarantees in life, and life rarely remains unchanged, but I hope to continue delivering my taxes to Maggie for a very long time into the future, as I trust her with my taxes completely.

I was very pleasantly surprised on how Jason was able to explain taxes to me! Taxes make since to me now - at least when Jason explains them. He has been doing my taxes and accounting for my small business for several years and I do not plan on ever changing accountants.

Carol provided excellent accounting services for my small business and personal tax returns. As a small company, it is nice for me to work directly my CPA. My return was fairly complicated, and I think she is very knowledgable and she responded quickly to my questions. Her pricing seems fair, and I hope to work with her for years to come.

What I love most about Bernice Hasssan & Associates, LLC is they are big enough to always have someone available to assist me throughout the year, but small enough to know my unique tax concerns. As the owner of an ASL/language interpreting business I am so happy my CPA firm provide smart CPAs...that simple! Super satisfied!!

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.
