Dyna was AMAZING. I am only 6 months in to my business and was so overwhelmed with how I was going to keep track of all of my income and expense, as I hadn't been doing any kind of tracking the last 6 months. In less than 2 hours she was able to get me set up and on my way towards getting my books all caught up and accurate. Honestly a life saver! I am still so happy with my experience because I was so scared about going to an accountant and getting bad news. I would recommend her to any small business or business in general who needs help with their accounting.

We were searching for tax preparers for our non-profit youth sports organization, and Kole responded to the request I posted on Thumbtack. He was responsive, provide valid information quickly.....and outside of business hours. He was professional, polite, and friendly. While our board has opted to use a local provider, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend people contact Kole for their needs. He was a pleasure to deal with throughout our brief encounter.

My tax preparer just passed away in March and I have been lost trying to figure out what to do and who to find as a new preparer. I had no leads so I interviewed three off your site. I just met with Chris at Bellwether Tax and Accounting today and left my taxes with him. He appeared to be very professional, he has 18 years experience at preparing taxes. He is reasonable with his fees and he has quoted a two week turn around on preparing 2013 thru 2015 for myself and my brother. I do not know the outcome of this experience yet but he instilled confidence in me that everything is going to be fine. I came home with peace of mind that all of my taxes are going to be caught up very soon and this is a lot of stress off my shoulders. He also has a very nice wife and son. His son even carried my tax box to my car for me. At this point, I think I have a new tax preparer for years to come.

Charles prepared and filed our personal and small business taxes for us for the first time this year. He was very thorough and efficient and got us the closest to "breaking even" we've ever been - which is something we value. We will definitely be utilizing his services in the future.

This is a perfect fit for my small business. I couldn't be happier with Mandy Shell of Shell Law & Tax, LLC. With Ms. Shell's expert bookkeeping/accounting, I might actually get to grow my business a little over the next year!

I found Mr. Allen's firm using an online search engine. Not only does Mr. Allen and his staff help us with out taxes, he offers advice on our small business. He helped us turn our business into an LLC late last year. This year, Mr. Allen asked us some questions and pointed out several tax credits that saved us almost $6,000. I highly recommend Mr. Allen's firm for taxes and business taxes. His firm also does monthly accounting work our business. We drop off our bank statements and he somehow manages to make sense of them and take care of our books (and help us with business advice).

Our company uses Full Circle for the Full Circle of Accounting for our business. They take care of everything from payroll, payroll taxes, sales tax, reconciliations and financial statements. It is a relief to know it's always taken care of and so much stress has been lifted from my plate. Highly recommend.

I love this company and their tax resolving service is the best. They have been really helpful to my husband and our small family business. We run a small delivery service and hadn’t filed our taxes in a while because my husband doesn’t know much about accounting and taxation. We had a call from the IRS and received a notice with a huge penalty. We were really worried sick about what to do before we got in touch with their consultants. They negotiated with the IRS and took care of the whole tax matter in two weeks. What I especially like about them is how down to earth, patient and thorough they are in explaining everything. My husband and I don’t know much about accounting and taxes, but they explained the tax process and calculation to us in really plain and simple terms.

Ty at Cutting Edge Accounting Solutions is awesome! As a startup business, I was having trouble keeping track of all the expenses, revenue, unforeseen costs, etc. In just 2 months, Ty helped my business to streamline accounting processes and help us be self-sufficient in our financial management. She is extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I know we were a wreck when we reached out for her services. With her help, we have tremendously increased efficiency. She is an all-around professional and my business cannot thank her enough!

Just a note to say how much we appreciate your excellence in preparing our annual tax returns. We always look forward to coming in during tax season. We are warmly greeted by your staff and our appointments are always on time. More importantly, we have built a relationship of trust and faith over the past several years. We know we can bring you our taxes (during an always stressful time!) and know you will get us every deduction we are eligible for. In addition, we have been pleasantly surprised when this year you did NOT take a deduction on our small business taxes because taking the deduction would have caused a tax liability for us next year. Mike, you always go the extra mile and we know you are looking out for our best interests. You are appreciated and we are grateful that you continue to take seminars on the latest tax law changes so we can rest assured our returns are the best they can be. Keep up the great work!

    I would like to say a very big thank you to the Meyer Accounting & Tax Firm. I own and operate a rental company. In this area and especially in this climate, there are a lot of variables and snags to this business. Meyer Accounting went out of their way to be very helpful, patient and astute in making sure they found every deduction we were entitled to. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a big firm accounting and tax practice at a family discount rate. I would have no hesitation is recommending Meyer Accounting & Tax to anyone and I look forward to doing business with this firm for all of our Tax and Accounting needs. I am so glad we found them.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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.
