Large accounting firms often make one feel anonymous. Nicole treated me as an individual. I found Nicole to be very knowledgeable, approachable, and willing and available to respond to questions. Her low overhead costs are reflected in her reasonable fees. I recommend her as a tax preparer and as a human being.

Jeff of JSB Tax Service was the best thing to happen to my limo car service business. He prepared my taxes for 2013 and 2014. He assured me that he will handle all of the accounting part of the business and that I should relax and run the operations of my business. He is very professional, accessible, and easy to get along with. He knows his stuff extremely well...lets just say I am happy with my returns. I am glad to have JSB and Jeff on my team. I highly recommend this firm.

Al Amir is an excellent accountant. When I requested an appointment he returned my call the same day and took the time we needed to address all of my questions. He completed my taxes quickly and for a reasonable fee. I would recommend him highly.

Corrine came with impeccable resources and when I interviewed her, she was so excited about reconciling bank statements that I almost thought that sounded fun, too! She's very reliable, personable, and accurate. Her hourly rate is very reasonable and I have found her to be very honest in her billing. She doesn't charge a monthly minimum. Some months she only does 2 hours of work for me and other months it's much higher depending on how many clients I'm juggling. I love the flexibility of only being charged for what I need.

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.

As I walked in the room for a meeting with SBA, Paul introduced himself to me. I knew right there that he was trustworthy and very knowledgeable about what my company needs were. I hired Paul as a business advisor and I am so grateful that I did. Paul has been helping Cleaning by Celma in different areas such as not having a business plan together or how to manage difficult customers. I highly recommend Paul to anyone that needs help with their business and accounting needs. Celma Silveira

These guys are awesome. I have been running my own retail business for over five years now. I had been using the services of an accountant to file my taxes. However it took too much time for me to explain everything to him and getting the returns filed on time was a real challenge. These guys are very experienced and they really take the stress out of the whole process. What really amazed me was how efficiently they worked going over the books and didn’t waste any of my time asking long questions. They did taxes for me last year as well as this year and the whole process took less than a week on each occasion. They take care of the taxes and let me focus on the business operations. I couldn’t possibly ask for a better service.

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.
