My 96 year old mother needed a new accountant because she stopped driving and wanted to find someone willing to come to her home. I spent half a day trying to find an accountant with good reviews willing to come to her home to do her taxes and couldn't find one until David Montague responded to me through Thumbtack. He was a little hesitant at first but when I told him my dilemma, he agreed to take the job. He scheduled a time to visit with my mother on a weekend and took care of all the details and tax returns. How many business professionals are you gonna find to come to your home on a Sunday afternoon? On top of it all, David charged my mom 1/2 of what she had paid in the past to have the same work done. I couldn't be more pleased or have better things to say about David Montague. I hope he will do the same for us again next year if my mom is hopefully still with us again for another year.

I typically prepare and e-file my own tax return. Sadly, my father passed away last year and I quickly found myself in over my head. My family went from a straightforward federal and state return to one that included the final return of my father, assets distributed as part of a trust, assets that fell under a will, assets that fell outside of both, several tax IDs etc. Using Thumbtack, I found several tax professionals and received quotes from three. Atabu stood out for a number of reasons: • Flexibility – Atabu met me at my office during business hours, saving me a great deal of travel time. • Professionalism – Atabu was always on time and came prepared to each meeting. • Diligence – Again, this year’s return was really complex for me and I simply didn’t have the knowledge readily available. Atabu brings that all to the table and waded through several options to minimize estate taxes and maximize my return. • Availability – Atabu and I communicated via email and text, he was always available. If you’re looking for an experienced professional to guide you through a turbulent return, look no further.

Andrea was amazing! I needed help with a stack of expense reports that I had been putting off for months. Andrea didn't need much explaining on how to begin, she was great with excel and understands the "fine print" rules of office accounting. In just a few hours the job was done! I will surely seek Andrea's help once again, and recommend her to anyone needing assistance with accounting and ad-work.

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.

I don't even think about tax season anymore. I own a small business and don't have time to stress over tax season. I just send my paperwork to Miguel and he takes care of the rest. I really appreciate how he takes care of business.

She also provided me with suggestions on how to cut costs and save money, which helped alot.  Michele is professional, knowledgable and easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend her services to help grow your business.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
