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.

I contacted this accountant today(Sunday) and he was on top of things right away because I was running out of time due to my last accountant being so slow to prepare my schedule C forms. He fixed what needed to be fixed from my last accountants mistakes and already filed my taxes. I recommend this accountant 100% and he now has us as a new client.

We have a small business and Darlis became our accountant 1 year ago. She has been a live saver! I did not have the time nor the know-how when it comes to bookkeeping and Darlis is very good at what she does. Crunching numbers and keeping our finances in order! She comes highly recommended!

Excellent service and I saved a bundle in tax credits and deductions my prior tax preparer had neglected to apply. I highly recommend Mandy Shell's Tax service. She is also a lawyer and keeps up to date on tax breaks and other key changes that help the taxpayer save money. Very reasonable fee - much less than I paid a different service last year, and Mandy got me much better results!

David and the team at Vanguard worked to immediately alleviate the stress that I was under. Within days my books were organized and I had the clearest picture of my accounts that no other service provided. David also jumped in to help handle payroll and delicate situation with HR. The fees are more than reasonable and I have direct access to information and the team. I cannot express enough my gratitude and fully recommend their services. Wish I had been introduced a year ago.

Mike Mead is a rare combination of knowledge expert, client champion, and tough advisor all rolled into one individual. I first used Mike to advise and assist in the set up of my business. I quickly learned to lean on Mike as a trusted tax advisor, and perhaps more importantly, a respected and valued business mentor. His direct, yet personable style generates confidence in his clients. Mike anticipates questions and provides answers, often when the client isn't even sure what information they need. He champions individual's passions and pursuits while understanding the limitations that one often faces when starting a new venture. His work is timely, reasonably priced and of exceptional quality. I gained expert tax recommendations, business advice and a mentor all with my first call to Alliance Financial and Income Tax. I now confidently recommend Mike and his team to my family, my friends and business colleagues.

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.

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 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.
