We had somewhat complicated taxes, and Jim gave us VERY good service for a very good price. He found some deductions previous accountants missed. He explained what he was doing as he did it, and had a monitor for us to watch as he worked so I understand the deductions better than I did before. We will definitely use him again, and recommend him highly.

Osborne has been a huge help from the very beginning of our relationship. They helped get us set up, addressed issues we had with our previous payroll company and corrected the problems very quickly. Our staffing changes frequently and they're always responsive, providing answers when we don't even know what to ask. It is a relief knowing they are familiar with all the unique pay roll details so we can focus on the day to day operations of a church and school.

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.

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.
