Could not have been more satisfied with Pat. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable (and helped me understand things which go way over my head) but he went above and beyond for me. He checked in on me to make sure I didn't need more help with setting up a payment plan with the irs well after our business was technically concluded. Then I received a letter from the state saying I owed money which I didn't think I did. I reached out and asked Pat about it and he took time out of his weekend to type up an official response letter for me to send them that same day. And on top of everything he charged much less than I would have expected, and didn't charge anything extra for everything he helped me with after he filed my taxes. To be honest I would have gladly paid a lot more for his level of service. I would recommend him to anyone. If you're looking for a tax guy, do yourself a favor -don't look anywhere else.

We were searching for tax preparers for our non-profit youth sports organization, and Kole responded to the request I posted on Thumbtack. He was responsive, provide valid information quickly.....and outside of business hours. He was professional, polite, and friendly. While our board has opted to use a local provider, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend people contact Kole for their needs. He was a pleasure to deal with throughout our brief encounter.

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!

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.
