Lakshmi and her company are excellent at helping to resolve challenging, detailed business financial issues. They have helped me with a major and critical business transaction - I recognize and rely on Lakshmi's expertise. In fact, I find Money Equation's services so superior that I teamed with them, bringing them in to conduct work for a customer of ours. You know that I trust Lakshmi and Money Equations since I asked them to join our service delivery team where my firm's work (IT) and accounting intersect. I am confident that your experience with Lakshmi and Money Equations will be productive, pleasant, and rewarding too.

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 needed an immediate answer about contractor tax requirements pertaining to W9 documentation and Tony over-delivered with his response. In less than 10 minutes, he throughly explained what I needed in case of an audit, what I didn't need from the contract and why, and provided different options I could pursue if the contractor failed to comply with my request. The quick conversation with Tony was informative, impressive and super valuable! I'll surely hire him again for future accounting advice.

As a new business owner, I had very little idea about bookkeeping, I even made a mess of my books in the beginning. Rochelle took the time to understand my business and advised how to keep my books clean. She fixed my early mistakes and delivered timely & accurate financial reports. Fast email/phone responses, she makes this entire process simple so I can concentrate on doing what I do best.

Services: 1) Tax Preparation, 2) advice on a real estate issue. My experience with Suncrest Financial Services was excellent. I was contacted promptly by a accountant/consultant who was courteous and professional. My complicated tax preparation was performed in a very timely manner with great attention to detail. The paperwork was filed on time and the accountant gave me solid advice for preparing for filing 2016 taxes. The accountant researched my real estate question and her advice will save me money in the future. I was very impressed with the accountant and the customer service of the company. I plan to continue to use Suncrest Financial Services for my future accounting needs.

Mr. Brian Wise did three things which makes him the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. 1. Mr. Wise took my 2013 Tax Return (which I had already prepared), applied IRS Rules of which I had no knowledge, and increased my return by 110%. 2. Mr. Wise resubmitted my 2009 and 2008 Tax Returns and recovered for me the Penalty and Return which was a very SIGNIFICANT RETURN. 3. Lastly, Mr. Wise EDUCATED US. His philosophy is: “THE IRS WORKS FOR US”. This “respect” but “fearless” philosophy taught me that even though we Taxpayers make mistakes, we should be allowed to make amends for those mistakes without the fear of a huge incursion upon our assets or our freedom. Mr. Wise is the BEST CPA IN THE WORLD. He has had a GIGANTIC impact on our financial freedom and I look forward to a long partnership with his firm. ~ Jerry C. Featherstone

    We make it a priority to enhance our mastery of the current tax law, complex tax code and new tax regulations by attending frequent tax seminars. Businesses and individuals pay the lowest amount of taxes allowable by law because we continually look for ways to minimize your taxes throughout the year, not just at the end of the year. Stop by and speak to one of the CPA in our office to learn about our strategies to minimize your taxes. We recommend tax saving strategies that help you with the following: - grow and preserve assets by keeping uncle Sam out of your pockets - defer income, so you can keep your money now and pay less taxes later - reduce taxes on your income, so you keep more of what you make - reduce taxes on your estate, so your family keeps more of what you've made - reduce taxes on your gifts, so you can give more - reduce taxes on your investments, so you can grow your wealth faster - reduce taxes on your retirement distributions, so you can retire in style Here's just a few of the tax saving strategies we use. The following are: - Splitting income among several family members or legal entities in order to get more of the income taxed in lower bracket - Shifting income or expenses from one year to another in order to have them fall where it will be taxed at a lower rate - Deferring tax liabilities through certain investment choices such as pension plans, contributions and other similar plans - Using certain investments to produce income that is tax exempt from either federal or state or both taxing entities - Finding tax deductions by structuring your money to pay for things you enjoy, such as a vacation home. Remember, we work for you not for the IRS. Many of our clients save many times the fee in reduced tax liability through careful planning and legitimate tax strategies.

    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.
