I was 3 years behind on my taxes and George saved the day.. Other accountants were asking for 2 times as much especially when they found out I lived in 2 different states and had corp taxes to file as well. I've recommended him to all my friends

Cherie was very friendly and provided assistance with a professional and caring attitude. Cherie worked in a timely manner and assured me of my options to receive a rapid refund. She consistently informed me of any new information and made me feel confident that my information was confidential and the reasonable price sealed the deal of my satisfaction. I will definitely use Cherie again as my tax preparer.

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!

Marina performed accounting work for us including preparation of tax returns for the last 15 years. She is very knowledgeable and trustworthy professional. We have somewhat complicated tax return and, unlike with other CPA firms, I liked Marina’s attention to details and her willingness to spend the time to try to come up with the most effective approach. After working with other accounting firms in the past and paying a lot of money for little service, Marina’s fees were very reasonable and we felt that it was the money well spent. While working with us, Marina also gave us a few business advices, which proved to be very useful. We will continue to work with Marina Rubinshtein, CPA, MBA and recommend her firm to anyone who needs bookkeeping, accounting, tax, audit or other related services. Eugene L.

I have been Lin’s client for the past six years and had no doubt give her a thumbs up. I own a piano teaching studio, and she has been with me since the start of my business. She offers full-range of accounting services from business incorporation, bookkeeping, financial statements, taxes, payroll, and audit. Her rates are reasonable, and I feel I am in good hands.

We hired DiLeo & Charles Tax to handle our bookkeeping/ tax filings and found Felicia to be incredibly helpful in organizing our financial reports. She set us up with Quickbooks and back dated 15 months of transactions that allowed us to make better decisions and understand the overall financial health of our business. Felicia is PROMPT in response, accessible and DETAIL oriented. We interviewed 6 other accountants before settling with DiLeo & Charles and think any small business/company in the Stamford area could BENEFIT from their EXPERTISE. At the end of the day, Felicia helped us SAVE MONEY and reduce our tax obligations by understanding the deductions available to us! Thank you for an excellent experience.

Rowena is an outstanding financial mgr! I'm a psychologist & my husband a photographer. We both work for the UN plus we also have private practices in Chicago. My husband documents my work as we travel through film & photography. Rowena manages both my medical practice & my husband's studio as well as our other personal accounts & our NFP with the UN. We hired Rowena 2 yrs ago when we were asked to establish the NFP. She's astute & very patient! She has a vast wealth of knowledge & we welcome her suggestions & her willingness to grow with us & guide us. We live a nomadic life style but she delivers on time & always keeps us informed of our current financial standing. Reaching us when we're in the field is sometimes difficult so she's also very patient & is a pro-active problem solver. She's respectful & trustworthy. We are very pleased by her work.

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.

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!

We have been with A&S Accounting for years now and I couldn't be more happier! Anytime I have a question they are easy to reach, and it's always the same person. They are a one stop shop for me, from bookkeeping to tax preparation for my business and myself and wife. I would recommend A&S Accounting to anyone looking for that one on one attention. You can't go wrong with them!

Bruce is on the ball. He is professional, courteous, and is more attentive than my CPA was at a quarter the price. His rate is VERY reasonable for the amount of time and effort he invests in you and your business. He wants it to run the way you want it to. Most importantly he knows the right questions to ask 100% of the time. You will be very happy with Fox's Bookkeeping as your choice.

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.

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 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.
