Christina is the best! She's super reliable, hardworking, willing to investigate things that she doesn't know, and very kind. I've used Christina as my go-to accountant for the past 4 years and even though I moved to Denver, CO she's still my accountant because I trust her implicitly. I've been an Airbnb host for years and she's learned how to file those special business taxes on my behalf with lots of patience and skill. Do yourself a favor and hire Christina for all of your accounting needs.

My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

I have been using LZW for tax advice and preparation for many years (10+ yrs) and am always pleased at the thoroughness through which Lin goes about preparing the returns for me and my LLC. Lin is constantly on top of all the latest tax laws, codes and regulations and proactively looks for opportunities to help me minimize my tax liability. Lin is very responsive to any questions i may have and in the rare case she is not sure of an answer, she will thoroughly research the issue and come back with a good answer or solution to my problem. I would highly recommend LZW for any tax or accounting services!

As a self employed dance instructor, every dollar counts. Christy broke my tax return down in such a way with practical strategies, that helped me cut my federal taxes down to less than a 1/4 of what I had expected. I have employed accountants before who took my money but didn’t save me a dime. Thank you, Small Business Accounting, for having my back!

I was terrified to start my taxes as a first year freelancer, but Christine was so kind and warm and put me at ease about the whole process. She empathized with me about how scary it is to go into business for yourself, which meant a lot to have someone tell me they went through the same fears. Not only was she prompt in responses, thorough, and professional but she made me feel confident into going to business for myself and to keep at it. I highly recommend Christine and Brae Accounting...highly.

When I met Frank my bookkeeping was literally shoe boxes full of receipts. Frank came to my office the first day I contacted him and has helped me create a monthly accounting system so that I can stop worrying so much and get back to business. He's always quick to respond and has even given me advice on my future endeavors. Frank and I will be working together for a long time. Highly Recommend!

Very professional team, with incredible knowledge and always willing to go that little extra. Service is very personal and they take time to understand their customers, which is something I found lacking with other services. Their response time is second to none and they are always there to support with answers and advice. Finally found a tax and accounting team I can trust and feel comfortable with.

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.
