So far it's been an outstanding experience. There is much to be done still to get our accounting and taxes on the straight and narrow, but Mr. Palmer definitely has the talent to get this taken care of for our business.

I outsourced my accounting to XAct Accounting years ago and have never looked at another option. The work is high-quality, reminders are invaluable, response to questions immediate and communication efficient. If you don't want to worry about your accounting tasks, know they are done right the first time, and enjoy outsourcing to low-overhead vendors - XAct is the company for you! Go for it! You'll sail forward and never look back.

Linda at key Business handles all of my finances and bookkeeping. She is always accessible and more than happy to answer any questions I might have. I thought it might be too expensive to have someone handling all of my accounting for me, but it saves time and I don't have to worry about it. It has been great working with her.

Carissa is a rock star of quickbooks! Far better that any person I ever work with. And she is calm, super organized, punctual. We had enormous mess in 2015 books and had to fail for tax extension because our accountant couldn't figure it out and other person created even more mess. Carissa came and everything start falling in place! So impressed with her and only wish we found her ealier!

These guys are really smart and run a top class professional service. I’ve been using them for years as my dedicated accounting and audit firm. I am a serial entrepreneur and started a number of business projects. Some of them failed, while others have been more successful and turned into profitable concerns. Obviously, I’ve had my run with the IRS and tax services. They seem to believe that I am making millions of dollars every year and rolling in money. They slammed me with notices of taxes due for the three companies worth more than $158,109. Luckily I’ve been working the experts at Legacy Tax Resolution. We all had a good laugh about the tax bills and then I let them handle the negotiations with the IRS. The tax agency later dropped the notices. Quite effective.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
