Joshua was very professional, efficient, and competent. I finally landed into his office after being dissatisfied with other 2 previous tax accountants this year. He did my taxes in 45 min. He showed to be very knowledgeable and his fee is well deserved.

I highly recommend Corrine Hisbany after meeting with her to sort out a years worth of data for my newly formed S-Corp. She met with both my Assistant and I which left us impressed with the knowledge, patience, responsiveness and advise she shared! My background is a small business owner in the Real Estate Industry and Quickbooks and accounting is new to me as is the entire process of bookkeeping. Reconcile? What is that and how do you know what goes where? Oh, yes - all the receipts how do you categorize and upload them? What I needed from a consultant was detailed knowledge to help me set up my business correctly, how to properly log and process each step. Corrine was suggested to me by a friend who utilized her skillset. I still met with other accountant types and for different reasons they didn't fit my needs correctly or I just did not feel as comfortable with them as I did with Corrine. She is the best, truly!

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!

Greg was a savvy resource and extremely valuable in helping me connect the dots and gaps in my bookkeeping/accounting/QuickBooks processing. He was great at relating the best practices in scenarios that made sense for my own business, which made it easier to comprehend. I highly recommend Greg.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 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.

    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.
