Mr wayne saw me on short notice. He also helped me with issues that my previous accountant firm could not or chose not to. I would and have recommended his services to others.

Lori and her partner were fantastic. They clearly have much experience, took care of my taxes at no time, figured out I should get a considerably larger refund than I thought, left me a well organized copy and, in the end, Lori charged me less than the price we agreed upon, claiming that the whole thing was less complicated than she thought it would be. As an extra, they both are really nice and pleasant people.

I have used two separate tax accounting services before Legacy Tax Resolution. The work ethic and professionalism at this firm is far superior to anything I have seen before. I worked with Stephen and his team last year to file my taxes for the first time. He is very experienced in tax matters. They helped my business get the best possible return after asking a lot of questions about the business income, employee expenses and my previous tax filing history. With their help, I was able to systematically organize all the invoices, forms, receipts and bills. Their recommended accounting practices have significantly reduced the total tax expenses for my business in the last two years. I will certainly use their service again in the future.

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.
