We needed some basic help and advice with filing sales taxes for a new business for the first time. Duane was so kind and understanding in spite of us having so little knowledge of what we needed to do. Duane made us feel comfortable and he treated us as courteously as if we were a 'big' client. He even said he will check on the rules for sales tax filing for our type of business as it may be exempt from the filing requirement. Duane is building a business built on integrity and excellent customer service for sure. We highly recommend DJW Financial Services.

Steven made sure that all of my taxes were done correctly, and I received my refund super fast. Steve took the time to go through everything with me on a personal level and I felt I could trust his judgement when it came to my personal taxes, as well as my business taxes. I would highly recommend Steve and Equilibrium Accounting and Tax to anyone who needs a confident and trustworthy tax adviser.

Since the numbers "behind" your business are an important tool in setting the right path for your future, understanding those numbers can make or break your business. Many who don't have a strong accounting background view all accountants as being equal, but that is not the case. A well-qualified accountant is equipped with the knowledge and experience to make a critical difference in many parts of your business, including the following: * Tax planning * Business consulting * Personal finance advice * Networking

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
