Lori has been keeping my books ever since I purchased my business a couple of years ago. She is very professional and I wouldn't want to think about trying to run my business without her help.

About

I offer bookkeeping, in-house financial reporting assistance, income statements and balance sheets compilation, income tax strategic planning, representation for income tax examinations, and payroll services. Bookkeeping The cost or other issues that come with having an in-house bookkeeper or accountant can be overwhelming for many small businesses. I provide general ledger bookkeeping services, including data entry, account reconciliation, and income statement and balance sheet compilation using information provided by you. I use QuickBooks for this process due to the ease and low cost of transferring all current and historical data to the business at any point. In-house Financial Reporting Assistance Many businesses have an employee with the expertise and desire to provide many accounting functions. The assistance they need is limited mostly to unusual transactions and finalizing the periodic accounting reports. I will come to your location at least quarterly to help insure that the information is complete, accurate, and useful. Income Statements and Balance Sheets Compilation Compiling income statements and balance sheets is always included in our bookkeeping services; it is generally included as a part of our in-house financial reporting assistance. In addition, we can provide CPA compiled statements for your bank, absentee owners, insurance underwriters, and others. Payroll Services Even the most meticulous and experienced human resources professionals find that handling payroll can be a headache. For many small businesses, I offer payroll services as an attractive and valuable alternative to in-house processing. I can provide a less expensive, simpler means of paying employees, filing taxes, and performing other essential but mundane tasks. Income Tax Strategic Planning My goal is for my clients to pay the least amount of income tax allowable by the law. I take the time to understand your personal and professional situation to help you get positioned to pay the least tax possible, while ensuring you do not mistakenly break any tax laws. Representation at Income Tax Examinations No matter how diligent you are at reporting your financial activities and making payment to government entities, you may get audited. By choosing Jason W. Taylor, CPA you will have peace of mind knowing that I can help you assemble needed information, discuss best practices to utilize, and support you throughout the examination process.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
