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

Working with Swon Tax Prep was a breath of fresh air. After our previous accountant left us high and dry well past the deadline, John worked fast and efficiently to provide us with a return much higher than anticipated. He was timely, reliable, and helpful.

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.

We have been working with Nu for over 3 years and she is an amazing accountant! We had a really difficult time trying to figure out our tax forms and she helped ease our frustrations by thoroughly working through our paperwork. She was so knowledgeable about our forms and how to process them. She went above and beyond to ensure all of our forms were done correctly and made the process easy.

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.

110 Bookkeeping has been a life saver in my business, and personal life! They have completely streamlined my accounting, cleaned up and reconciled from some poor past bookkeeping, educated me on simpler ways of doing things and always have my back! It's crazy to feel this passionate about a bookkeeping service, but I just cannot recommend them highly enough! I'm so grateful to have found 110 Bookkeeping!

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.

Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your area.

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.

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.
