Nicole was fantastic! I had been using the same accountant for years who passed away. Little did I know how uneducated I was! Nicole is super fast to respond and extremely informative. She had my taxes done within a week which was surprising because I am self employed and have a lot of details. I will use her going forward and definitely recommend her!

Have only had one meeting w Josh but can say already -he knows his stuff ! Just from eyeballing last years returns, he found an error from our past accountant and this error ( once he corrects it ) will be money coming to us. He was very personable, very easy to talk to and knew exactly what we needed!! Sooooo happy I found him-I feel more than confident in his abilities. I think he's great. The prices he quoted were more than reasonable. Honestly -don't think twice , just hire him!!

    I am a former Navy SEAL and small business owner whom was having a difficult time trying to balance and run my business while drowning in trying to manage my duties in tracking transactions, bookkeeping, finances, taxes…until I met Karen! Karen came in to what I would describe as less than optimal conditions and completely overhauled my books and saved my butt! She is trustworthy, honest, deploys and implements online accounting platform and technologies and is extremely diligent in the execution of her duties. At the end of the day, knowing I can focus on my business and the things I need to grown my business while Karen has my financial back has been, in my opinion, has been my best business decision yet!

    Courtney was very easy to work with. She answered all my questions and simplified our payroll process. When it came to filing taxes, all the work was already done and I didn't have to pay a CPA $200 an hour to do the same work. Will definitely use again in the future!

    I provide accounting services to small business. I specialize in clearing up backlogs, streamlining processes and providing external guidance to the small business owner, which allows them to focus on running their business. Because I am not in the business, I have the detachment to see what the results are and what they mean. I have taken businesses from paper processes to full automation. Past experiences include scaling the accounting function to providing what the business needs in the the most cost- and time-efficient way. Overhead is counterproductive to small business.

    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.

    Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your area.

    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.

    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.
