Deb helped us prepare taxes for both my husband`s business and our personal taxes. There is many great things I can tell about Deb as a professional or a human being, but what is outstanding about working with her as opposed to other accountants we met in the past, is that she wants her clients to understand taxes, she asks questions, help people understand where are the numbers coming from and make best choices planing for the future. I would recommend her to everybody seeking any accounting help! Ania B

John has been my family's tax preparer for three years and has always provided accurate, timely and professional service. Each tax return is thoroughly explained, and he follows-up throughout the year with information and planning help. What makes John's service especially useful to me is that he also serves as my family's financial advisor. Having that kind of complete service is incredibly valuable to me. I recommend John to anyone looking for tax preparation services.

Exceptional is my overall comment! My previous accountant was not good at what they did. At the time I thought they were OK and at a good price. But a person knows when "it just seems that this accountant may be putting my companies at risk". After changing to Valley Accounting and Tax I feel extremely confident that my taxes are correct and I am not at risk. Valley Tax worked with me over a couple of years just to get my taxes in line. I bounce many financial questions.... both business and personal ..... past Valley and they area very competent and professional in their advice. Valley Accounting and Tax are good. I have and will continue to refer my business partners and friends to Valley.

Wes is very personable and professional. He conveniently comes to my home for our meetings which makes an already hectic schedule that much more manageable. He was able to answer any and all of my questions while also educating me in various areas that I was unaware of. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tax professional. I will undoubtably continue to use him for any and all future accounting needs.

Chris did an excellent job of straightening out my business accounting and taxes. He is personable, professional, and ultra efficient. His accounting services are helping me to position my business to grow. I was initially just looking for someone to sort out my taxes as a one-off project, but based on his stellar work, I decided to hire him as my full-time accountant.

I had to get part-year resident taxes done for California with a number of items in addition to W2s. He was fast, very friendly, and even found an error on my MN state taxes that I had already had done that garnered me an extra $300. I've found my new accountant.

Complete accounting services for a forklift sales & service company. He came in having worked in a dealership environment previously and that experience paid off because he was able to understand our system, inventory, sales, trade-ins, payroll, commissions and pretty much everything we asked of him. He came in and picked up where someone else left off and we carried on our business like there wasn't any change at all. Helped with cash flow analysis, business recommendations for insurance, payroll services and even customer collections.

Jill built the accounting systems and controls we utilize to at FourCubed over the past 8 years. Under her watch and guidance we have operated a complex international business with many accounts and different product lines.

Really appreciate Susie's professionalism, confidentiality, attention to detail, accuracy and knowledge of deadlines. She has knowledge of so many different softwares and apps that I did not know to incorporate in my business. I will be using her again for setting up tracking and accounting on an upcoming construction project. MBV, HC & R Inc.

I was self-employed for over a decade and didn’t really keep a track of my income or tax filings. I didn’t think much of it until I received a notice from IRS telling me that I owed them more than $100,000. I was shocked and distraught because I don’t even earn that much and can barely feed my family while paying rent. A friend told me about Legacy Tax Resolution Services so I contacted them. After listening to my case, they told me what might have gone wrong. They prepared all my un-filed returns and got my business deductions into account. Next thing I knew, that figure dropped to less than $10,000.

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.
