Verified review

I have had a great experience with The Income Tax Center. My books are a nightmare every year yet they manage to organize them, file my taxes & give me accurate financials. I have secured thousands in funding because of the accounting work they've done for me. Not to mention the customer service is great, Nate always responds to me quickly and they saved me hundreds from what I was paying the previous company.

Dave did our 2016 taxes when we were in a total crunch, met with us on a Saturday, and was super efficient. We are very pleased with his professionalism and willingness to work with us in a pinch. We plan to use him from now on for our taxes.

Tammie is very easy to work with and very professional. I usually prepare my own taxes so I have a decent amount of knowledge preparing them. This year we had some special circumstances so I wanted to make sure they got done correctly. I walked in to one of the big name places but had a bad feeling the whole time. I had to explain to the preparer what boxes to check so they basically just hired them right off the street. I demanded my paperwork back and luckily found AP Accounting. Tammie answered the phone right away and made me feel confident in her from the start. We met up and in person and everything was done very quickly without problems. On top of everything I saved over half of what the big name place wanted. I will continue going to AP Accounting even though my situation was a one time thing because the value for the peace of mind is unbeatable.

very knowledgable and met deadlines I needed. I liked his online portal system which is very easy to use to track documents. Very reasonable rates! He was very flexible and rescheduled an appt I recorded incorrectly- and made time to shuffle his schedule the same day. I would recommend him to others who need small or other business taxes and indiv. returns completed. Plus I prefer to support a small local business vs. any chains or franchise tax prep places!

    I don't think I could say enough good things about Laura Young, the bookkeeping specialist with whom I've partnered to assist me in the maintenance and upkeep of my accounts. Laura not only does the work, she also teaches me the exemplary practices in how it's done so that I'm a more informed and compliant business owner. Thanks so much to H&R Block and to Laura for the bookkeeping services my company now enjoys!

      Mandi and Kari prepare my monthly compilations and always have them to me within days of month end. They are very professional and provide great advice. Upon changing accounting firms to them I reduced my cost to half of what I was previously paying at a large firm.

      I was so far behind in my organization for my company expenses. Tiffany was able to through an entire year and separate all my expenses in detail. She is very patience with you and explain everything step by step. I would highly recommend her for all your business needs. I really appreciate everything she did and I am glad she is my accountant.

        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.
