OH Partners CPAs is a very knowledgeable and helpful CPA firm. I used them for my business formation, company bookkeeping, personal as well as business income taxes. They offer several useful pieces of advice that will help me save money on my tax returns. Fidelis and Evan are the epitome of what tax professionals should be. They have been well taught through academics and experience. Every time I see them, I always have a long list of questions that seem difficult to handle. However, they always answers them with ease. They have a creative yet practical mind that helps you go forward with the best course of action for your accounting needs. Unlike many other tax professionals, they embraced modern technology and can get things done with very little face time. If you do need to speak with them, it always seems they have time for that too. In brief, he is a very effective communicator. He charges a competitive fee that I believe is worth every single penny. At the end of tax season, he will leave you with peace of mind! I would definitely recommend him for someone in a similar situation.

I enjoyed speaking with her. I have a unusual work schedule. She worked with me for a meeting place and time. I left my paperwork with her. My taxes were prepared very quickly, and it didn't cost me much. Great job.

She was very professional and knowledgeable. She was able to identify my financial problem areas and began immediately correcting my bookkeeping errors. Choosing Retta & Co. was a good investment for my business.

I contacted Ms. Proffitt because of good reviews on Thumbtack. I needed a new tax preparer when my previous one disappeared. Amber's price was reasonable. She did the work quickly with the information I provided, with only a few phone calls to check and revise things in the returns--fewer than I would have expected since I'm a new client. She is both highly professional and friendly. In the final return she included a number of useful worksheets. I definitely recommend her.

Torie and her team have done two events for me. My baby shower was an event that many are still talking about. From the decorations to the food, people were impressed. It was only natural for us to use this team again for my bridal tea party shower. Again Torie and her team exceeded my expectations. Please see my photos

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.

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 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.
