Nobody likes changing their tax preparer, but Adam did an excellent job all around of making the process as easy as possible. The reason I selected Short Financial was the "Get it done" attitude. He is knowledgeable, and my questions/issues are are addressed immediately. That's so important for a small business like mine. The online tax info system was very user friendly, and saved me a ton of time. Next step... we start working on tax planning to make my business more efficient. When you select the companies to interview for your business... BE SURE TO PUT SHORT FINANCIAL IN THE GROUP FOR CONSIDERATION. Thanks! David W Milkins Milkins Consulting, Charlotte NC

I own a Pre School in the City of Azusa, California with an enrolment of 120 students. Ragi Riad was introduced to do our accounting for the year 2016 by my daughter, who is the Director of the school. The Accountant I had before, suddenly fell with a serious illness, and could not perform his accounting work, and was hospitalized. We contacted Ragi and made an immediate appointment to do our accounting work. This work was entrusted to him, and it was amazing to find him how he adviced about the work to be done. This was a tremendous task, as whole years 2016 accounting was not properly done. With his knowledge, on the subject to-gether with his work quality, professionalism, accuracy and punctuality we were able to produce a well done accounting report to be filed with the IRS. Our appreciation for this work is highly commended. Andy Niyarepola - Owner Azusa Discovery Center Azusa, Ca-91702

My previous accountant from more than 35 years died less than a week before filing deadline. Spiro helped me to file an extension. I have since hired him and am looking forward to working with him and his firm. Very professional.

Mr. Craig Field explained step by step of the process, we are so glad we choose to do our taxes with him. Every year is a hassle for me and my husband to find someone we can trust, is honest and transparent. A couple of years ago our long time accountant moved out of Charlotte and since we'd tried several places without any luck. We are looking forward next next year and work again with Mr. Craig Field.

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Numbers 2 Numbers! Sharen has been doing my taxes since 1997. She is fast, professional, and looks out for me to get back every dollar that I am due. I have recommended her to family and friends who have also used her services and been extremely thankful to me for the recommendation!! What I like most is her integrity. She is very honest and she gives me all of the information that I need so I can make informed decisions- not just the current year, but in the future so I am able to plan into next year, She even remembers to ask me questions that I had not even considered. You will not regret using Numbers 2 Numbers.

    I have never had better service with an accounting firm, as I have had with Kar & Carter Accounting, LLC. Their attention to detail is noteworthy to say the least. I would have never gotten as much income back on my tax returns over the years without them. Their prices are extremely reasonable and they will go above an beyond for you, your family, or your company. Thank you for all the hard work ladies!

    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.
