My husband and I decided to go with Abacus Accounting and we are very glad we did. He is knowledgeable, helpful and very patient. He explained things to us that we were not aware of before when it came to getting our taxes done. We had two years to file for and he was excellent at explaining the process step by step. His communication skills are great. He made sure that we were comfortable and understood the process since my husbands W2`s were more complicated than mine and his price was beyond fair. We are so happy that we chose Abacus Accounting and will continue a relationship with his services! Thank you again!!!!

I started a rental property business back in 2011 and hadn’t filed tax returns on my income since starting out. An IRS agent gave me a visit in June 2017 and served a one-month notice to pay back taxes totaling more than $30,000. I was completely horrified and called a bunch of tax consultancies. I got a reply from Legacy and they offered to go over the records of my business. I hadn’t really maintained any accounts, but did have the bank statements detailing the receipt of rent and expenses. They helped prepare a record of accounts for me and filed it with the IRS. The firm negotiated with the IRS and managed to get the taxes reduced to half of the tax estimate and put me on a monthly payment plan. I will be finished with the payments next month. I also used their firm to file taxes for this year. They are a good, reliable service and I am quite relieved to be done with my back taxes.

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.
