I contacted this accountant today(Sunday) and he was on top of things right away because I was running out of time due to my last accountant being so slow to prepare my schedule C forms. He fixed what needed to be fixed from my last accountants mistakes and already filed my taxes. I recommend this accountant 100% and he now has us as a new client.

David and the team at Vanguard worked to immediately alleviate the stress that I was under. Within days my books were organized and I had the clearest picture of my accounts that no other service provided. David also jumped in to help handle payroll and delicate situation with HR. The fees are more than reasonable and I have direct access to information and the team. I cannot express enough my gratitude and fully recommend their services. Wish I had been introduced a year ago.

I love this company and their tax resolving service is the best. They have been really helpful to my husband and our small family business. We run a small delivery service and hadn’t filed our taxes in a while because my husband doesn’t know much about accounting and taxation. We had a call from the IRS and received a notice with a huge penalty. We were really worried sick about what to do before we got in touch with their consultants. They negotiated with the IRS and took care of the whole tax matter in two weeks. What I especially like about them is how down to earth, patient and thorough they are in explaining everything. My husband and I don’t know much about accounting and taxes, but they explained the tax process and calculation to us in really plain and simple terms.

Ty at Cutting Edge Accounting Solutions is awesome! As a startup business, I was having trouble keeping track of all the expenses, revenue, unforeseen costs, etc. In just 2 months, Ty helped my business to streamline accounting processes and help us be self-sufficient in our financial management. She is extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I know we were a wreck when we reached out for her services. With her help, we have tremendously increased efficiency. She is an all-around professional and my business cannot thank her enough!

    I would like to say a very big thank you to the Meyer Accounting & Tax Firm. I own and operate a rental company. In this area and especially in this climate, there are a lot of variables and snags to this business. Meyer Accounting went out of their way to be very helpful, patient and astute in making sure they found every deduction we were entitled to. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a big firm accounting and tax practice at a family discount rate. I would have no hesitation is recommending Meyer Accounting & Tax to anyone and I look forward to doing business with this firm for all of our Tax and Accounting needs. I am so glad we found them.

    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.
