Jim is very professional and knowledgeable. He helped me get some of my business returns amended and set up with a good plan going forward. My business and personal taxes are much more organized now. Jim does all the work himself and I was made to feel important from the second he responded on Thumbtack.

When I started my business, T. H. Industrial Sales, in 2001, the first person I contacted was Holly. Her understanding of QuickBooks and vast experience in accounting & bookkeeping were critical to the success of the business. I would not have done nearly as well without her. Taxes were always filled on time, accounts were always balanced and reports were extremely accurate. I was free to do what I did best without worrying about the purse strings. I shut down the office in 2014 and retired with her help and guidance. I would like to add; she is very pleasant to work with, charming and witty. Truly a unique person, a real asset to any business.

Michael and Ned were excellent in satisfying my tax preparation. Both were very attentive in maximizing my return. In previous years I had HR BLOCK handle similar preparation and was charged much more in fees and didn't get nearly the same expertise that Simic CPA provided. I would give them the highest rating and encourage others to give them their business! BOB from Strongsville

Our taxes were more difficult than in the past. I was searching the web for someone to do them. I had never heard of thumbtack but found Kristine there. I was hesitant at first because her business was more of a distance than I wanted to travel. But I throughly enjoyed Kristine and her work. My taxes were finished on time and she took time to explain the returns in detail. As of now I will use her services again.

    Dana Whitted does a top-notch job handling my personal and business-related tax preparation and is very thorough and clear when answering my questions. She has in-depth knowledge of tax code for small businesses and was able to provide pointers with regards to accounting and inventory. For personal taxes, she does a great job relating the pros and cons of various deductions like home offices, donations, etc. I highly recommend her services for both personal- and business-related matters.

    Jim has been doing my personal and both of my children's tax returns for almost 14 years. He always will ask questions and make suggestions for getting a greater refund. Also for the last 10 years he has done the taxes for my small LLC business. He is very good at getting the best possible pass thru deductions to my personal return. He is very up to date on the latest tax law changes. The returns have always been finished on time, accurately, and when he promised them.

      Legacy Tax Resolution is the best tax consulting service around. They have a smart and knowledgeable team that is super quick in going through your books to find errors and problems. My husband and I run a small furniture business and have been using their service for three years. They don’t charge as much as the previous tax firm I worked with. They are super friendly and always respond quickly whenever I need help to figure out my taxes. Thanks to their service I feel much better, knowing that my taxes are filed on time and we won’t get any trouble from the IRS.

      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.
